posted Feb 6, 2017, 4:47 PM by carrie.zeigler@wilmington.k12.oh.us

make this change on your calendar... the late arrival on the school calendar is scheduled for Friday March 3rd has been changed to an EARLY RELEASE. Students will be released at 2:15 pm on March 3rd. 

Here's why... The WCSD is hosting the SW Ohio District Wrestling Tournament at the high school that day. Between 1 pm-3 pm hundreds of fans as well as 225 wrestlers and coaches, will be arriving for the two day event. To avoid the traffic jam and problems getting buses and kids out after school at normal time we will be changing the 2 hour late arrival to a 2 hour early release. Thank you in advance for your support.
