Frequently Asked Questions
Winfield High School
COVID-19 Emergency School Closure
How long will schools be closed?
When will we receive learning opportunities for our kids?
How will my child's grade be determined for this semester?
Due to the unique individual needs of each of our students and their families, our administration team has decided that it is in the best interest of students that grades are not collected during COVID-19 closure. School work provided during school closure will serve as enrichment material to help students with continued academic growth and success. As a result of this, Semester 2 grades will be determined by your child’s 3rd quarter grade.
If my child did not receive a passing grade for 3rd quarter, will they have the opportunity to recover this credit?
Yes. Students who did not receive a passing (60% of above) grade for 3rd quarter will have the opportunity to bring this grade up to passing. If the needed course work is completed by May 23, 2020, this will result in a P (passing) grade on their transcript for this semester. WHS counselors will be reaching out to individuals to whom this applies with more information.

All events have been canceled through May 1st, 2020, therefore the April 25th prom date will not be held. No decision has been at this time regarding whether prom will be rescheduled for a later date.
