Our Vision & Mission

Our Vision...

Wallace Grade School exists in order to serve the educational needs of the children of the district. Our employees strive to provide a well-rounded educational experience that prepares students to become contributing adults and builds self-confidence. We work to create an environment for learning that is safe, positive, encouraging, and enjoyable. We are committed to challenge each student with high expectations for learning and success. Children will be actively engaged in their learning. We need the support and cooperation of caring and concerned families to accomplish our goals. We must protect the best interest of all of the residents of our district. That includes decision making based on input from different sources and exercising fiscal responsibility. Mutual respect, communication, and cooperation are the keys to a healthy learning environment. We have to work together to provide the best program for all.

Cancellations and Closings

We will utilize a phone notification system, AlertNow, to communicate emergencies and school closings.

It is imperative that you keep the school informed of all phone numbers where you may be reached.

You may also tune in to WCMY 1430 Am or check the internet at www.mywebtimes.com between 6:45 and 7:45 A.M. for notice of school closings if the weather is questionable. In addition, notifications will also be posted on Twitter and Facebook (@ottawawallace).

Occasionally, it is necessary to alter a bus schedule. When these circumstances occur, attempts will be made to notify parents of any unscheduled early dismissals or late starts.
