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.

Students must attend every class, every day, and be on time. In order to receive daily credit, students are to bring all necessary materials to class. Students will not be excused from class to get materials. Homework and class assignments are to be completed on time and to the best of the student’s ability. Only behaviors befitting the learning environment are acceptable. Students are to comply with all reasonable requests of any staff member. Dress code will be enforced.


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
