The Tentative Return to School Date Wednesday, December 9

If we are able to return to face-to-face learning on Wednesday, December 9, we will adhere to our normal schedule. Students who were learning through hard-copy correspondence will follow the same plan as they did prior to moving to distance learning. If we must continue with teaching and learning remotely nothing will change. Our students and staff will follow the distance learning plan, which can be found at the bottom of this document. Let’s hope for good news and we can get our students back in school.

Picture Retakes - December 17 - CANCELLED

A make up date will be communicated once scheduled.

Distance Learning Update

Over the last two weeks of distance learning I have observed numerous class meetings and have been very impressed with the level of teaching and learning taking place. Teachers are using multiple tools and strategies to deliver instruction, and student attendance has been good. Although there are some significant differences between distance and face-to-face learning, a few things remain the same. Regardless of the method of teaching and learning, students who do the five basic things set themselves up for success:

  1. Attend Class
  2. Complete Assignments
  3. Communicate with Teachers
  4. Ask Questions
  5. Ask for Help

If students commit to doing these 5 things, their chance of having a positive academic experience during distance learning increases significantly. Let's make this a priority for the remainder of our time learning remotely and when we are able to return to school!

School Meals Program Update

WHS students are eligible to participate in the District’s school meals program. School provided breakfasts and lunches will be available for pick up at WHS between 8:30 am and 9:00 am on Mondays (for Mon/Tues meals) and Wednesdays (for Wed, Thurs, Fri meals) each week unless indicated otherwise.
