Dear Winston Families,

I hope this letter finds you well and happily immersed in summer activities.  Enclosed is the annual August Summer Packet which includes numerous documents and forms.  Some of these provide important information about Winston and some require a response on your part.  Whether you are new to Winston or a returning family, it is important that you review all of this information carefully as we have made a number of revisions, clarifications and updates - especially to the Student-Parent Handbook and the Dress Code. 

Below is a list of the documents that are included in this mailing.  Documents marked with an asterisk (*) are to be completed by all families.  Those marked with a double asterisk (**) are to be completed only if they pertain to your child.  All of these items should be returned to the office as soon as possible so that we can update our files in preparation for the start of the school year.
