Principal's Message



October 22nd, 2021


Dear Wicklund families,


We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Next week, October 25th through Friday, October 29th, is Red Ribbon Week. 2021 is the 36th anniversary of this drug prevention campaign in San Joaquin County. The national theme for Red Ribbon Week is “Drug-Free Looks Like Me.” We will have various dress-up days for students to participate that go with the theme of being drug-free. The dress-up day calendar is attached to our newsletter. Our ASB team has put together various fun games and activities for students to participate in throughout the week. Please check out our Facebook page to see photos from the events.


The week will culminate with our Halloween Parade on Friday, October 29th. The parade will start at 9:00. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, parents are still not permitted to be on campus, but we will be taking students around the outside of campus and through the park for you to see your student dressed up. Please see the attached parade route so you can find a location to set up for the parade. Please also note the following guidelines for student’s costumes and the day in general:


  • Any imitation weapons associated with the costume are not permitted on campus.
  • Any masks associated with the costume may only be worn during the parade. The mask may not be worn anytime before or after the parade.
  • Costumes must also be appropriate for school and meet school dress code guidelines.
  • At the teachers’ discretion, class parties may occur during the last 30 minutes of the school day. Your child’s teacher will be in contact if they intend to have a class party.


There is no school Monday, November 1st. This is a professional development day for our staff. School will resume on Tuesday, November 2nd.


Also, parent-teacher conference week is November 15th – November 19th. Our Thanksgiving break is November 22nd – November 26th.


Finally, WSF is having their Splash-a-Thon pledge drive. There are great individual prizes for students and some fantastic classroom prizes. Check out the Splash-a-Thon website here:
