WELCOME TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR

(released Tuesday, August 31, 2021—information is subject to change)

Our promise, we will strive to make the learning process a positive and rewarding experience while maintaining a desire to develop a generation of inquisitive young people who will become lifelong students in their various pursuits of excellence. Please know that we are very excited to work with all of you in supporting your children as they grow as student scholars during the 2021-2022 school year. Here is some information to help guide you and your families in preparing for this school year:

Transportation Updates: 

As a part of the District’s reconfiguration process, transportation has been restructured for District students. PLEASE NOTE: THIS RESTRUCTURING INCLUDES CHANGES FOR STUDENTS WHO WALK TO SCHOOL AND THE LOCATION OF MULTIPLE BUS STOPS.  All parents should log into the Transportation E-Link located on the main page of our District website at www.wbasd.k12.pa.us.  The link will be listed as a news item half way down the page on the District Website.  Parents should log into the E-link system using their child’s District computer username and password – this is the username and password used to log into Chromebooks last year. This should be completed for each child in a household.  If you do not know your child’s computer password it can be found in the Skyward Family Access portal by clicking on Family and Student Resources under Quick Links on the webpage.  For additional questions regarding access please contact the main office.  

The transportation link will note if your child walks or rides a bus to school, the bus stop location, and the time of pick up and drop off.  Students should be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to their designated pick up time.  https://wilkesbarrepa.thebusportal.com/elinkrp
