WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY | OCTOBER 10
World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10 every year to raise awareness of mental health issues worldwide and mobilize efforts to support mental health.
At WHS, we work to ensure that many layers of support surround each student. Our goal is that if a student needs help, they can obtain support by choosing several options.
The "Need Emotional Support" option on our webpage allows students to reach out and ask for support privately. Based on the student's initial request, a staff member will reach out to first ensure their safety and well-being and then listen. Often students need someone to listen as they process concerns they are having. Based on the issue, the responding staff member will assist the student in making connections to family members or other supportive WHS faculty who can help.

Class of 2023 Parents and Seniors!
Please be advised that when ordering at yearbookordercenter.com, you cannot reserve a spot or put a down payment. You must complete your tribute, finalize it and pay it in full in order to secure your tribute before they sell out or by January 31, whichever comes first. You may design your tribute, save your work and return to it later, but doing so does not save nor guarantee a spot. Pro tip: Gather the photos and prepare your message before starting your tribute so that you can complete it in less time.
Any questions? Contact Ms. Tan at email@example.com. Your graduate will cherish the memory of a senior tribute for years to come. Order yours before they sell out!

STUDENT CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.
All single-period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.
Attendance Reporting Hotline:
11 & 12 Grades: 909- 444-3642
9 & 10 Grades : 909 - 444-3625
