FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
May 17, 2022
Dear Parent or Guardian,
On Friday, May 20, 2022, Van Wyck will hold a special ceremony in front of the flagpole from 7:45am-8:15am in advance of Memorial Day to honor our fallen heroes. Beginning at approximately 7:00am, parents dropping off their children will be diverted from pulling around the front of the school to drop off their children. Instead, parents will drop off by the auditorium door. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience.
With the warmer weather upon us, I want to remind parents to review the Van Wyck Dress Code. A copy of the dress code can be found on page 55 of the Student Handbook. We appreciate your
support to ensure students are dressed appropriately for school each day. Please pay particular attention to midriffs, tank tops, skin-tight clothing, and low-riding pants. These clothing items are not permitted. We encourage students to dress in light-colored cotton clothing that complies with the dress code.
The 8th grade celebratory trip to Six Flags is Thursday, May 26, 2022. Seventh graders will follow their regular schedules. Eighth graders staying back will follow a modified 9-period day schedule. Students are reminded to bring their Chromebooks to school each day. Mrs. Kramer has sent home important dates to remember. Please make note of these important dates.
Thank you for your continued support.
Dr. Steven H. Shuchat, Principal
