Parent Conferences; Special Schedule on Wednesday; No School on Thursday, Friday, and Monday

Parent Conferences are being held this Wednesday, from 4 - 9 PM, and Thursday, 9 AM - 12 PM, 1 PM - 5 PM, 6 PM - 9 PM. If you haven't signed up for your appointments, please go to the district or school website, and follow the links to sign up for your appointments. Remember that 9th grade students should also sign up with their counselor for a 4 year planning appointment. Those appointments are available in the same link as the teacher conference appointments, just select your student's counselor. Students are released at 12 PM on Wednesday, and are out of school all day Thursday, Friday, and Monday.


There is a special meeting for all 9th grade parents with a student in Geometry that are interested in the Dual Degree program. This meeting will be Thursday evening at 7 PM in D187. We hope all interested families will be here to learn about this exciting program.

Our Boosters need your help!

WNHS Booster is always looking for volunteers to work the concession stand during sporting events.


It takes over 20 volunteers to staff various spots at home football games, at least 6 for weekly volleyball games, and a bit more for Saturday volleyball tournaments. We are asking each parent to volunteer at least 2-3 times in the season.


As always, you will never be asked to stay to help while your athlete is playing. We have concession times for both fresh/soph and varsity. Varsity families come a bit earlier before your child’s games and fresh/soph families stay a little after your athlete plays to help with varsity games. Students can also volunteer to get their required service hours.


If we don’t get volunteers to sign up than we would have no choice but to close concession during that time.


To sign up please go to our website: https://www.wnhsboosterclub.org/


Together We Win!

PSAT is OCTOBER 16, next Wednesday, for all JUNIORS.....

Please remember that all Juniors will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday next week. Seniors are dismissed for the day and should take advantage of the day by visiting the college of their choice. Some selected Sophomores will also be taking the test on Wednesday. All other freshmen and sophomore students will follow their regular schedule on that day.


If you are the parent of a testing student, please be sure that they have had something to eat before they come to school. Students will need a calculator for use on the test as we do not provide those for the students.


This is a great opportunity to identify areas of growth for students before they take the required SAT in April. Students must be classified as a Junior in order to take the test. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our offices.

Information about our 2 Hour Weather Delayed Schedule

Last Spring, District 200 surveyed parents on their preferences regarding implementing delayed-start days because of inclement weather in the event that weather conditions are expected to subside enough for students to be safely transported to school. We thank parents for their input.


The majority of parents surveyed supported the decision, and District 200 has decided to use the two-hour delayed start policy during the 2019-2020 school year. Families will be notified in the same manner as a school cancelation. Emergency days taken with the two-hour delay as opposed to canceling a full day will not be made up at the end of the school year.

Busses will pick up 2 hours later than normally scheduled pickups.


Schools will start at the following times:


Greenwood, Mary Endres, Westwood 9:30 am

Dean, Olson, Prairiewood 9:40 am

Clay 10:15 am

Woodstock High School, Woodstock North High School 10:20 am

Creekside, Northwood, Verda Dierzen 10:30 am


All schools will dismiss at the normally scheduled time.


Implementación de dos horas de retraso escolar en caso de clima severo


La primavera pasada, el Distrito 200 hizo una encuesta a los padres sobre sus preferencias con respecto a la implementación de entrar dos horas más tarde debido a las inclemencias del clima, y en caso de que se espere que las condiciones climáticas disminuyan lo suficiente como para que los estudiantes sean transportados de manera segura a la escuela. Agradecemos a los padres por su aporte.


La mayoría de los padres encuestados apoyaron esta decisión, y el Distrito 200 ha decidido implementar la política de retrasar el día escolar por dos horas durante el año escolar 2019-2020. Las familias serán notificadas de la misma manera en que se les comunicaba cuando se iba a cancelar la escuela. Los días de emergencia que se usen por el retraso de dos horas en lugar de cancelar un día completo no se recuperarán al final del año escolar.

Los buses van recoger a los estudiantes 2 horas más tarde que el horario regular.


Las escuelas comenzarán en el siguiente horario:

Greenwood, Mary Endres, Westwood 9:30 am

Dean, Olson, Prairiewood 9:40 am

Clay 10:15 am

Woodstock High School, Woodstock North High School 10:20 am

Creekside, Northwood, Verda Dierzen 10:30 am


Todas las escuelas terminarán a la hora regular.
