Student ID Picture Makeup Day
Picture Makeup Day will be held on Tuesday, 9/21, during the school day. This is only for those who were unable to have their picture taken on 9/1. Picture Retake Day, for those wanting to retake previously taken photos, will be held later in October.
Reporting an Absence through ParentVue:
Parents, did you know you can report your child's absence through PVUE? Besides all the other information available to you through PVUE, there is a way to report attendance. Once you log in click on the Attendance icon on the left-hand side. There will then be a blue button on the right-hand side to report attendance. Please call the office if you have any trouble logging into PVUE.
Any student who comes to class after school/class starts needs to check in through the Attendance office. If your student is late, we will need a parent to send in a note or call the attendance line at 503-673-7602 and leave an excuse.
If your student misses an entire day, we ask that you call the attendance line, 503-673-7602, and leave a message excusing that student. You can also send in a note when your child returns to school on their first day back.
All notes or calls excusing students must be made within 24 hours.
If your student needs to leave school for any reason, a parent should send in a note or leave a message on the attendance line, 503-673-7602. If a note comes in with the student, please have them stop by the Attendance desk and get a note to excuse them from class. We expect that high school students will remember to leave class at the appropriate time.
If your student forgets to leave class, we will send a note requesting the student meet their parent in the parking lot. Parents, you can call the attendance office from the parking lot at 503-673-7603 to request your student. Please be aware that anytime we need to request your student come to the office, there may be a delay.
In the case of an emergency, you can call the attendance office from the parking lot to request your student.

We are excited to welcome back our WVHS Wildcats for full-time in person class this year! We are relying on our COVID mitigation strategies to help us stay safe and healthy. If you have particular questions about our reopening, the district website does have a FAQ page that is quite helpful: https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/domain/3631.
Similar to last year, masks will be required in the school. They need to be at least two layers thick and cover the nose and mouth. If you’d like to review, here is a current CDC guide regarding everything mask related during the pandemic:
In addition, we will be relying on parents and students checking in daily prior to school to make sure that students are healthy to attend school for the day. Here is the symptom sheet that can be used as a guide for determining if your child can attend school:
MEDICATION DROP OFF
If your student has daily medication or emergency medication that may need to be administered at the school this year, please drop off the medication and paperwork as soon as you are able to in the office during school hours. The medication forms can be found on the WVHS website under the “For Parents/Guardians”, then click on Nursing and Health Services, then on left click on medications/allergies. Links to forms are found on that page. A Medication Authorization Form needs to be filled out for each medication. If you have a special circumstance or have any questions about this process or what is needed, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the WVHS
Nurse, Mary Groh, at 503-673-7061 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
