Parking permits are required for students to park in the student lot. A student must have a parking permit to park in the student lot located by the Softball Field. In order to receive a parking permit, the student must complete the on-line application, HERE. The requirements are listed below:

  • Complete Student Parking Application
  • Download California Driver's License
  • Download evidence of vehicle insurance coverage with student listed as insured driver

Once the Parking Application is completed stickers will be issued by Mrs. Markel at the Assistant Principal's office. If you had a parking decal last year, you MUST complete the form again this year and replace your old sticker. You must have this on your car before parking in our lot on the first day of school. WVUSD is NOT responsible for any damage or theft of the vehicle, this includes any articles left in it.

Do you need a Chromebook for the School Year?

District owned Chromebooks are made available for checkout to students who choose not to bring their own device to school.

All students checking out a device will be expected to return the following WHS DEVICE AGREEMENT FOR STUDENTS to Mr. Wendland with their signature and the signature of a parent or guardian. Students will not receive a Chromebook until they return the signed form.

Students who checked out devices during the period of Distance Learning and Summer School are expected to return those devices. No other device will be checked out until those are returned.

Important Nutrition Services Update

AB 130 Universal State Meal Mandate - Breakfast and Lunch will be provided at “no cost” this coming school year at all sites. Nutrition services are asking to fill out a meal application this year. Meal applications are NOT required to get the FREE meals.

Students do NOT have to take the meals, they can bring their own meals from home.

Approved meal applications help increase district funding and help households with discounts on various products and services but are NOT required to get FREE meals.

BIRTHDAY MARQUEE is now available! If you have a student that has a birthday coming up, be sure to make a birthday dedication on the WHS marquee! All proceeds goes to support WHS students and staff so RESERVE YOURS TODAY!

Great idea for WHS staff, teachers and Alums too!


Due to many problems and safety issues we DO NOT allow student lunches to be delivered anywhere on campus.

Food, drinks or other items are NOT to be passed to students through the fence. This is strictly prohibited.

Outside Food Delivery Services such as UBER Eats/Door Dash is strictly prohibited. Food will be confiscated if deliveries are dropped off.

We understand the importance of student nutrition but we encourage students to either use the free lunch at school or bring their lunch from home.

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.
