What are the school hours?
School hours for students are 9:00-3:38. Breakfast is available each morning for any students wishing to eat. Breakfast begins at 8:30 and students may arrive anytime between 8:30-8:50 if they wish to eat breakfast. Currently breakfast and lunch are provided at no cost to students due to COVID relief funding.
Normal arrival time for students not participating in breakfast or the YMCA before school care program, is 8:45-9:00. Students should arrive in time to be in their classrooms by 9:00. Supervision begins for students at 8:45 and is also provided for breakfast at 8:30.

Wysong School partners with the YMCA to provide before and after school care for families who are interested in this service. Please visit http://www.ymcalincoln.org/ for registration information. Please contact Casey Keating at 531-289-7864.
What is the current enrollment?
Our current enrollment for 2021 is currently around 700 students. Wysong is built with four classrooms at each grade level. Because our attendance area continues to grow, we are currently undergoing an addition project that will increase our classrooms to six at each grade level. Final completion of this entire addition project will be completed by August of 2022.
What are the current number of classrooms at each grade level?
We currently have six classes of Kindergarten, five classes of First, and four classes of Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth grades.
What is our mascot?
Our students, staff, and families helped select Wysong’s Mascot and school colors. We are proud to be the Wysong Wolves. Our colors are blue and silver.
Parent Teacher Organization
We are fortunate to have a strong Parent Teacher Organization at Wysong. The PTO is helping us create and build traditions at Wysong. Their mission is to support and enhance their childrens’ education by being involved and supporting our school. I believe a strong Parent Teacher Organization is key to helping us provide additional opportunities and enrichment for our students’ school experiences and also an opportunity for families to become involved and learn more about our school.
Working toward common goals and building community and culture within our school is important. I believe a student council group can be very instrumental in helping with ideas and also in leading our students. We are pleased to have our student council in place and helping lead many special events for our students and school.
Instrumental Music, Orchestra, and Chorus Opportunities
In 4th and 5th grade, students can participate in Orchestra. Orchestra students would have a small group lesson one day each week and then likely either a before or after school group rehearsal each week as well. 4th and 5th grade students could also choose to participate in Chorus which would meet one day per week either before or after school. Students in 5th grade may choose to begin to learn a band instrument. These students would also have a lesson one day per week during school and typically would meet for a group rehearsal before or after school. usually students in 5th grade cannot participate in both Band and Orchestra but could choose one of these and also Chorus. Fourth graders could do both Orchestra and Chorus if they wish. Typically, the band and orchestra teachers at your current schools will talk with 3rd and 4th grade students about these opportunities. Parents will receive additional information in August about these opportunities.
Other support services for students
Lincoln Public Schools provides services for students with identified Special Education needs and also for students who are gifted. These services are of course also provided at Wysong. Students who might need additional support in reading or math are provided opportunities to participate in research based intervention to help support their growth.
