Message from Mr. McDermott

Welcome to 4th quarter. Parents and students, this is a busy time of year for everyone. I urge you to stay focussed on your academic success and finish the school year strong. Please make sure to tune in later this week as we make announcements on senior activities.

Course selections and requests


Now that course cards for the 2021-2022 school-year have been turned in, we are in the process of entering those requests into the myStudent system. Each course card is reviewed by an administrator or counselor to ensure your student is meeting all of their graduation requirements. You may notice that the requests entered are sometimes different than what has been requested. This can happen if a student is missing a graduation requirement, needs credit recovery, or is missing a prerequisite for a course. You will also see that no virtual school or Dual Enrollment placeholders will be in the request. These schedules will be adjusted when the student enrolls in their Dual Enrollment courses over the summer. Students requesting a virtual school placeholder in the fall must begin the course after July 1, 2021 in order to have a placeholder for semester one. Once the student is enrolled and active in the virtual course, their schedule will be adjusted. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the school counselor or grade level administrator.

If your student is in AP U.S. History or DE US History, please see below.

Our weight lifting room is being renovated

Wesley Chapel High School Athletics is currently renovating our weight room! We are extremely excited to have this project take place. We have been able to purchase new flooring, new paint, all new racks and benches, but our work is just beginning. We still need new free weights, dumbbells, bars, medicine balls, and plyometric boxes. We would love to receive a contribution from you to help us with this project. It is our goal to give all of our student athletes from all sports a state-of-the-art facility to train in. Any amount is appreciated, thank you!

Prevention Methods for COVID-19

Please support our efforts to keep our students and staff healthy. Screen your student daily using the Student Screener and contact a medical provider for further guidance if your student develops symptoms or you need medical guidance. COVID-19 testing is available in the community. Contact the school nurse (RN) or administrator immediately if your student receives a positive COVID-19 test result.

Prevention measures for COVID-19:

o The best way to prevent illness is by limiting exposure to the virus.
