We are looking for one more Deerfield parent to serve on the Deerfield Site Council this year. The Deerfield Site Council is a school advisory group that is composed on parents, teachers, and community members.

The Deerfield Site Council meets monthly throughout the year. Our meetings are usually held on the second Monday of the month from 3:30pm - 4:30pm. Please contact Mr. Baumer if you are interested in serving on the Deerfield Site Council during the 2021-2022 school year.

Reminder: COVID-19 Update from Superintendent Parks

The following updates were shared with all WPS families last week:


First, in an effort to streamline our communication, principals will no longer send letters each time there is a positive COVID case in their school. Instead, the District will update its COVID dashboard each Wednesday at the end of the day and email a link to the dashboard to our email list. The dashboard displays COVID cases by school.
