• Dear Parents and Students, 

     

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year here at the New Wheeless Road Elementary School.  I am thrilled to welcome you back to school.  It is truly an honor for me to serve as your Principal.  I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make a smooth transition for our students during these uncertain times.  We are excited to work closely with you to ensure the success and well-being of all our students. 

     

    We have been working hard all summer to plan a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19.  Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to guide students, and our schedule has been modified to allow more social distancing.  A stronger emphasis will be placed on social emotional learning which will be implemented throughout all grade levels. 

     

    Wheeless Road Elementary School is such a special place to learn and grow.  We are proud of our beautiful new school and have high expectations for all students.  Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe.  Our Wheeless Road motto of “Buzzing to Excellence” will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful school environment.  Whether we are learning Face-to-Face or Virtual our goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning. 

     

    Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we face many obstacles due to the global pandemic.  We appreciate your support as you work with your children at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing hands.  We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following the Wheeless Road and Richmond County websites for important updates and information regarding our reopening plans.  Be Safe! 

     

    Sincerely, 

    Timothy R. Jones
