August 12, 2009



Ready or not, the start of the 2009-2010 school year is finally here for Williamson County Schools. Summer break will officially come to an end tomorrow when thousands of students head back to class for the first time since May.  Don't forget, tomorrow is a full day for students.

We have several videos for you to enjoy in this issue of IN FOCUS.  First off, we'll show you how Williamson County Schools ENCORE CAMP is motivating students to learn.  Plus, hundreds of NEW TEACHERS gathered this month for a special orientation.  Find out what they learned.  And the glitz and glamour of Hollywood made its way to Spring Hill for Longview Elementary School's annual TEACHER RETREAT.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about a public reception for each of the three DIRECTOR OF SCHOOLS candidates.  Plus, bargain shoppers are sure to find some great deals at this year's WCS SURPLUS AUCTION, where everything from furniture to vehicles will be up for bid.  And the H1N1 virus is all over the news these days.  Find out what the Centers for Disease Control says schools should due in the event of a FLU OUTBREAK.

We also have plenty of information to help you and your family prepare for the start of school.  That includes information regarding, BUS ROUTES, LUNCH PRICES, HEALTH SERVICES, SCHOOL START/DISMISSAL TIMES and BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE.

Remember to encourage people to SIGN UP to receive IN FOCUS, and as always, feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.  The next issue of IN FOCUS will be sent Thursday, August 27.
