Westwood High School is a full time school, and all students are expected to be in attendance every day.
A student’s attendance record while in school becomes part of the student’s permanent record, which is kept on file. Quite often, this record is of great concern to prospective employers; therefore, the student should strive to maintain a good attendance record.
If a student is absent, a telephone call from a parent or guardian registered with the principal’s office between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on the same day as the student’s absence is required.
Notifications of the absence will be sent at 10:00 am and 3:00pm the day of the absence. Failure of the parent to call the school within 2 days will cause the absence to be recorded as “unexcused.” Students who have an unexcused absence(s) will receive after school detention up to Saturday School.
NWEA Testing Schedule
All 9th grade students will test in math and reading on Tuesday, September 29. The 10th grade will test in the same subjects on Wednesday, September 30. Students will be divided in two groups and will test in the media center or gymnasium. Testing will begin first thing in the morning. This will be the first of three NWEA tests this year. The purpose of the test is to gain student achievement data to enhance teaching and learning. The will be tested in both math and reading. For more information go to https://www.nwea.org/
POA students and students learning from home are required to test. There will be information sent out via email and hard copy with details on how to access the test from home. Look for information next week.
WHS Distance Learing Plan
Things are starting to heat up on the Covid 19 front and it is impacting a number of school districts in the UP. Below is a link to the Westwood High School Distance Learning Plan should we be forced to shut down for an extended period of time. Please understand that in the event of a shutdown, teaching and learning does not stop. Students will be expected to attend classes virtually during their scheduled times and all assignments will be counted toward their cumulative grades. Please refer to the learning plan for additional information.
Let's keep our fingers crossed in hopes we do not have to use this plan!
