Important Traffic Flow Reminder
Traffic Flow for Drop-off and Pick-up
To keep the traffic flowing in the morning and afternoon, please form a circular line-up inside the DPW parking lot to get traffic off of Route 27. Students must be dropped off and picked up on the sidewalk next to the gym; they should not be walking across the space between the circle and DPW lots. Thank you for helping to keep this process safe for everyone!

My School Anywhere

Be sure to register for the new, online directory at MySchoolAnywhere.com.  This directory will replace the traditional printed version, but directory information will now be parent-driven.  It is an OPT-IN system, and you MUST register to be included.

Gift Your Child

The PTO has now raised almost 80% of our $15,000 fundraising goal for this year.  Visit the WMS PTO on Facebook to see some of last year’s grants in action around school.  Remember, this year the PTO will not be asking you to pay dues or to sell gift wrap or cookie dough – we instead ask that you Gift Your Child.  100% of your donation is tax deductible and eligible for matching gift donations, and every dollar directly supports the PTO’s many programs at WMS.  Donate today after registering at MySchoolAnywhere or here! You can also mail a check (made out to “Wayland PTO”) to Wayland Middle School PTO, 201 Main Street, Wayland, MA 01778.  The suggested donation is $100 per middle school student.
