WHS Food Pantry
Did you know that WHS has their own food pantry? Good nutrition is a part of students' academic success. We want to make sure all students have access to food, no student should go without! If you are aware of a student in need of food, please contact a counselor so that resources can be offered to that student and family.
Eligibility: Any family of a Wasatch County School District student in need is welcome.
Open: 15 minutes every school day from 7:45-8:00am and after school from 3:00-3:30pm Tuesdays thru Fridays.
Donations accepted! You can drop off donations to West Campus anytime they are open. Most needed items: cereal, cups of Ramen (chicken is the favorite), granola bars, pop tarts, cases of water, fruit snacks, single serve oatmeal, uncooked rice, uncooked bags of black beans and pinto beans, fruit cups, and juice boxes.
Tutorial @ WHS
"Open" means that any student is welcome to attend that tutorial. These tutorials could be study halls, enrichment activities, or organized group (clubs) meetings.
"Closed" means that only students who are requested by the teacher are invited to attend. These students have been identified as having not learned the essential standards in their class and tutorial time is a time to reteach concepts, retake tests, check for understanding, etc.
Please talk to your student and ask them how they are using their tutorial time. It is a great time to get homework done as well! Student who are not attending a tutorial are marked absent; the absence is recorded under their advisory class.
