The end of the third quarter is racing at us as spring seems to be coming. West Burlington Independent School District hopes your son/daughter is having a great school year. If you have questions or concerns or if your son/daughter isn’t doing as well as he/she should be doing; please don’t hesitate to contact your student’s teacher, principal or superintendent. WBISD prides ourselves in being a school where we walk the talk of -- students first!
The recent school shooting in Florida has all of us on edge. West Burlington Independent School District takes your student’s safety very seriously. Perhaps one of the most effective deterrents from a perpetrator is limiting access to the building. Both facilities have a buzz-in system requiring visitors to stand in front of a camera and to be “buzzed” into the locked school door. I am glad to say we have had this in place for six years. We have surveillance throughout our attendance centers and grounds. We have morning supervision and after school supervision both inside the buildings and outside. I believe we do a good job of monitoring our students to see if they are upset or needing support of some kind. We will continue to be vigilant and keep our students and staff safe. We are revisiting our safety measures and will do small adjustments to protocols we believe need improvement. If you have questions or concerns about our security procedures, please contact your son/daughter’s principal or your superintendent. We are here to help. (Click Here to Read More) Read more
