myWCS allows for parents and teachers to easily communicate with one another within this private community. Parents are members of an all parent group, and may be members of smaller groups that pertain to their child's grade and/or extracurriculuar activities. Please be aware that when using the internal messaging system in myWCS, by default, all replies are sent to the entire group. If you want to send an individual reply to the sender of the message, please compose a new message to that specific person. This helps avoid large groups, or in some cases the entire school community, from receiving unintended messages. Thank you for your help.
