Drop off service is available at the back of the school, 8:30 – 8:40 AM. To take advantage of this service, proceed down Greenwood Avenue with the School on your right and pull over where directed. A volunteer will take your child safely from your car into the school yard. Operate your vehicle so that all children are safe and traffic can keep moving. Do not pull into or walk through the parking lot at the back of the school. Do not pull into the driveway at the front of the school. Be a volunteer!



All of the Wakefield Public School (WPS) system operates on six-day schedule. Specials, such as P.E., art, and music are not determined by the day of the week, but by the day value of 1-6. Your teacher should supply you the mapping for your class. You can find out where you are in the 6-day schedule by reviewing the WPS District calendar, which has 6-day value superscripted to the right of each date.


Lunch is provided in two seatings:
  • 1st Lunch: 12:10-12:45 PM, grades K-2
  • 2nd Lunch: 12:45-1:20 PM, grades 3-4
Go to Food Services on the WPS site to find the elementary lunch menu and information about paying for lunch through My School Bucks.

Be a volunteer: come into a lunch and help with oversight. Your child will be all smiles!



Wakefield Academy provides before- and after-school care for all of WPS. Go to Wakefield Academy on the WPS site.
