  • Parent Lunch Reservations

    We are excited about our “Parent Lunch with Child” Reservations.   CLICK HERE to sign up.     

    • There are two slots per day per grade level due to limited seating.   As a courtesy to other parents, we ask that you do not sign up for more than one slot a month unless you still see an open spot the day before that is unused.

    • Students may get lunch from the cafeteria or parents can bring lunch.  Parents will not be allowed to purchase lunch from the cafeteria since cafeteria visitors are not allowed.

    • IF SLOTS ARE FULL - As another alternative, parents can sign their child out for their lunchtime and have lunch at the park, the bench in front of the school, or in their car and then return their child to the front office after lunch is over and sign them back in for the rest of the day.

    • Please bring your driver’s license when checking in for lunch.  Parents will need a badge that we create using their driver’s license or legal ID through our RAPTOR system.

    • We are so excited to see you in school for lunch!

  • Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

    CARPOOL DISMISSAL

    • NEW:  Starting the first day of school, carpool students will be supervised inside the building until their parent arrives in the carpool lane.  Your child will be dismissed to the pole number which is also supervised by a staff member.  

    • “Carpool Dismissal” means your child is picked up by a car in the front carpool lane.  

    • A staff member will hold up a number of fingers (1-5) as you drive by the entrance of the carpool lane indicating which pole number to stop your car at. 

    • CARPOOL TAG:  Parents should display their carpool tag at all times until the student is in the car.  If you didn’t get a carpool tag today or don’t have one from last year, we will be handing more out at dismissal on Wednesday.

    • Students need to be able to independently climb into their car with their school items after their car door is opened for them.

     

    WALKERS DISMISSAL

    • Walking students will be dismissed to their family member/designated person by the large tree in the northeast side of the building in the front walkway area parallel to the front/east carpool lane.

    • Grade level cones will mark where the family member/designated person needs to stand to help us release the students to the correct person after they are escorted out of the building by grade level.

    • Sibling connections for walking students will be done outside the building.

    • Please hold up your carpool tag to indicate to the teacher who you are picking up.  If you didn’t get a carpool tag today or don’t have one from last year, we will be handing more out at dismissal on Wednesday.



    SCHOOL AND DAYCARE BUSES:

    • Grade level groups of students will be escorted out to the north carpool lane where they will board their bus or daycare bus/van accordingly.

    • If their daycare bus/van is not present at dismissal time the students will wait inside the cafeteria or just outside the cafeteria at the tables until the daycare bus/van arrives by 3:00 p.m.

    PASAR

    • Grade level groups of students will be escorted down to the gym/cafeteria area and handed off to a PASAR representative.

  • VOLY - Background Checks and Volunteer Signups

    Wells has a new system for volunteer sign-ups this year! Plano ISD is partnering with a site called VOLY so that each campus can have a centralized location for volunteer opportunities AND background checks, and the schools and PTA can work together to have all the sign-ups in one place. To volunteer at Wells, you MUST have a background check completed through VOLY. This will be required for field trips, class parties, Field Day, library helpers, orange folders, etc. (**Lunch visitors will NOT need to sign up through VOLY – more information is coming on this soon.**) Opportunities will be added to the site regularly, and volunteers will be able to go to the site and see all the options that might apply to them. Please go to https://plano.voly.org/ to create your account and complete your background check today.  We look forward to seeing you at Wells!

  • MAP Testing

    All Plano ISD students in K-5th will be administered the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test over the next few weeks. MAP tests measure student achievement in reading (K-5th), math (K-5th) science (3rd-5th), and language usage (3rd-5th). Plano ISD has administered and used the information from MAP testing for many years to provide teachers with valuable information about student learning. MAP scores help teachers know what your child has mastered and what your child is ready to learn.   This test is adaptive so the difficulty of each question is adjusted to the student’s answer on the previous test question. If a student answers a question correctly, the questions become more difficult. If a student answers a question incorrectly, the questions become less difficult. Because of this technology, the MAP system can assess students at various achievement levels. More detailed information is provided in the MAP Parent and Student Guide document available at https://www.pisd.edu/Page/1316.  Also, after testing, you can find your child’s score on the Plano ISD Parent Portal’s Performance section for your child.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions about your child’s MAP testing.
