Wamogo Regional High School
April 27, 2018
Message from the Principal
Dear Wamogo Families and Friends,
I am very pleased to report that the PSAT/SAT administration went perfectly! We had nearly all students test and surpassed our goal of 95% participation, with approximately 97% participation! Students seemed overwhelmingly prepared and enthusiastic about the assessment and I am optimistic that we will see stellar growth in our students from the fall.
Additionally, I want to remind all families that we are very excited to have cameras installed at Wamogo. We will be using the cameras as a means to increase safety and security. I am also pleased to announce that the social media parent presentation by the Connecticut State Police will be held in the auditorium on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Parents will learn about the risks associated with social media and the internet while also receiving important training on what to look for and how to best monitor your student to keep them safe.
I know we are all very happy to finally be experiencing something other than arctic temperatures. As the beautiful spring and summer weather begins to arrive, I would like to ask you all to review the dress code policy for our school with your students. The policy is listed below. Common dress code infractions to watch out for include the following:
- See-through clothing
- Short shorts
- Tank tops
While the policy does not address specifics, I ask that you use sound judgment when examining your student's attire each day before they come to school. For example, "short shorts" are difficult for schools to define, however I would recommend trying to keep the shorts no more than 3" above the knee or no shorter than their fingertips when their arm is fully extended down.
Lastly, we have observed some instances of unsafe student driving on Wamogo Road and in the parking lot this year. Please know that we have a zero tolerance policy for any unsafe driving practices. Students that choose to pass cars, drive in excessive speeds, or commit other unsafe driving infractions will be strictly disciplined up to and including suspension from school and/or driving privileges. The safety of all students and staff at Wamogo is our number one priority. If your student drives to school, please speak with him/her about safe driving practices. If you observe any student exhibiting unsafe driving practices, please report it to the main office with as much detail as possible.
Thank you for your continued support!
The purpose of stressing appropriate clothing for students is to create an atmosphere at school that is conducive to learning. Students at Wamogo are expected to dress in a manner that will not interfere with instruction or endanger the safety of others or themselves. Hats are not to be worn in the building.
At the discretion of building staff, students who wear inappropriate clothing to school or school related activities might be subject to administrative action.
Students who fail to comply with regulations concerning student dress will be subject to school discipline up to and including expulsion in accordance with the Board's policy on student discipline.
School administrators, at their discretion, may make changes to the list below. Students who wear inappropriate clothing in school or to after school events will be subject to administrative action, including but not limited to the following:
• request of student to change clothing;
• request of parent to bring to school a change of clothing for student;
• removal of student from class;
• in-school suspension, suspension or expulsion.
