Dear WHEC Parents/Guardians,
Thank you for your continued support and help during this time.

Closure:
Governor Wolf stated that all PA schools are closed indefinitely. This means that all events,
extra-curricular activities, athletics and community use of district facilities are also canceled until
schools are permitted to open. We will monitor information and share updates as they are
available.

Spreading love, hugs, and smiles:

The WHEC staff created a short video. We hope that you enjoy it. A BIG thank you to Mrs.
Hughes for putting it all together!

Lunch/Breakfast:
• Beginning Monday, June 8th we will be continuing our summer meal distribution
through Monday, June 29th at all three buildings, following the same scheduling
Monday’s and Wednesday’s from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.

• Please note that the same Evans/Girard entrance will be used at the JSHS for the
entire month of June distribution. Our food service team is very enthusiastic to
continue our emergency meal program for the WYOAREA community.

JR/SR High School-Due to the parking lot repaving, anyone wishing to pick up a lunch must
enter the parking lot at Evans and Girard Ave and pick up the lunch at Door #7. You will see the
table and lunches set up at that entrance.

Please note, children must be present to pick up the meals at the following locations:
Junior Senior High School – Door #7 (Evans and Girard Ave)
West Reading Elementary Center – Main entrance (S. 4th Ave)
Wyomissing Hills Elementary Center – Main entrance (bus drop off area)
Please do not hesitate to contact Dariely Marrero, Food Services Director, by
email, dmarrero@wyoarea.org or by phone at 610-374-0739 x1118 if there are any questions or
if further information is needed.

4th Grade iPad Collection:
Fourth grade iPad collection will take Wednesday, June 10, 10 am – 2 pm and Thursday, June
11, 10 am – 2 pm. Simply drive up to the main entrance and staff will take the iPad, cable, and
power adaptor.

Reading Is Fundamental:
RIF books will be distributed during lunch at WHEC. Keep on reading!

Instructional Services:

Some services including RAZ Kids and IXL will still be available to help your children over the
summer. The WHEC Quick Links will remain available over the summer. Please click here.

Safety Precautions:
Out of an abundance of caution, please consider utilizing a mask when picking up lunches or
devices from the school buildings during this time.

Kindergarten Registration:

We are excited to begin registration for kindergarten students in the Wyomissing Area School
District for the 2020-2021 school year! To ease this process, we will be offering online
registration utilizing our NEW Student Information System PowerSchool. To begin the online
registration process please visit:

Please note that you can register your student online and submit the required forms at a later date
- prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. When Governor Wolf provides direction on
lifting COVID-19 restrictions and re-opening schools additional information on orientation will
follow.
Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable summer!
