Earlier this week, a car with an out-of-state license plate came onto campus, and two of the passengers got out and attempted to break into several cars in our parking lots. We are thankful for surveillance cameras throughout our campus which helped police and our administration deal with this situation. As always, we would advise anyone parking at Wheaton Academy to lock car doors.
Upcoming Parent Survey
Because Wheaton Academy places a high value on parent feedback, we conduct a parent survey every three years. This year, we have enlisted the help of SchoolRIGHT to conduct a CONFIDENTIAL PARENT SURVEY for our school community. The survey will launch on Tuesday morning, May 11, from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please watch for the survey in your email, and if necessary, check your spam folder. Note: Survey invitations are email specific and will not work if forwarded to another email address.
