Identifying Students with Disabilities


August 4, 2011


In just one week, bells will ring to start off the 2011-12 school year in Williamson County.  Thursday, August 11 will be a half day for Williamson County students.  This issue of IN FOCUS is full of important information for parents as they prepare their kids for the start of school, including a special BACK TO SCHOOL MESSAGE from WCS Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include BUS ROUTE information, SCHOOL LUNCH prices and HEALTH SERVICES info.  Parents can also learn how to register for BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE or sign up for ADULT EDUCATION classes.  Plus, students will notice some new faces when they return to school next week.  We'll introduce the district's newest ADMINISTRATORS.

In addition to those stories, we have an alert for parents regarding IMMUNIZATIONS, a couple of new questions for the RUMOR MILL and an important reminder about this weekend's TAX HOLIDAY.  But before you start shopping, make sure you know what's on your child's school SUPPLY LIST.

We hope you enjoy all this issue of IN FOCUS has to offer.  Please encourage others to sign up for IN FOCUS so they can keep on top of what's going on inside Williamson County Schools.  All they need to do is send us an EMAIL letting us know they'd like to begin receiving IN FOCUS.  The next issue will be released August 18.
