Thanksgiving Food Drive

Good morning!

November 2-13 the ABC Committee will be hosting our annual Food Drive! Students and staff can bring in nonperishable items to their first period class to compete for a Donut Party! Items will be picked up by Mrs. Jeannie Fagan’s students and sorted into baskets for our ABC students.

What is the ABC program? This program was created to help our students and families that are in need. We typically create Thanksgiving food baskets, Christmas food baskets, the Angel Tree, and help out with clothes, shoes, toiletries etc. We are currently accepting any donations in order to build up our ABC closet.

If you have any students that you would like to refer to the program please let us know!

Change of placement request for semester 2

Wesley Chapel High School is already preparing for the second semester that begins on January 6, 2021. In order to properly allocate teachers and resources, we are requiring families to notify the school by November 13 if they want to change their student's educational model for the second semester. Requests received after this date will be placed on a wait list and could be changed if space becomes available.

Only parents/guardians are allowed to complete this form. Student requests will not be processed. One form should be submitted for each student in the household that attends WCHS. If you do not want a change of placement, please do not complete the form.

The school may not be able to process an additional request to change the option in this form after it has been submitted.


Changing your option will result in the student's schedule being adjusted. This includes potential changes to their teachers and/or courses from the first semester.

Families that are requesting to be changed to mySchool Online must have internet access and a device for their student. WCHS no longer has loaner devices for students.


Click here to complete the request.


Families considering online enrollment with Pasco eSchool should visit the Pasco eSchool website to register.


Please contact your student's school counselor if you have any questions.

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.

o Maintain proper social distancing (about 6 feet).

o Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

When can I remove my Cloth Face Covering (Mask)
