Quarter one will quickly come to an end. We want to ensure all of our students are On-Track to graduate. Being On-Track involves academic performance, attendance, and behavior. See below to help your student be On-Track.

On-track students receive an On-Track wrist band and free admission to athletic events except state series events!
- Fewer than 3 unexcused absences in any period in the quarter
- 2.5 Cumulative GPA and no D or F for the Quarter
- No discipline referrals
- 3 to 5 unexcused absences in any period in the quarter
- Behind 1 credit or GPA 2.0-2.49
- 4 or less level 1 referrals or 1 or less level 2 referrals

- Behind 2 or more credits and/or GPA below 2.0
- 5 or more level 1 referrals or 2 or more level 2 referrals
Student Consequences for Unexcused Absences
At the secondary level, attendance is marked per period. If a student has at least five (5) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, in any one course within a calendar month or ten (10) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, in any one course within a semester, the student may lose privileges as described below.
Loss of Privileges Due to Unexcused Absences
• May be excluded from attendance reward incentives as defined at the school level.
• Lose the privilege of participating in extracurricular activities. These include but are not limited to dances, special events, club activities and athletics, until the end of the following grading quarter. Absences accumulated in the fourth quarter will result in loss of privileges during said grading quarter only and will not carry over to the following year.
• Lose the privilege to drive to campus until the end of the following grading quarter.
Absences accumulated in the fourth quarter will result in loss of privileges during said grading quarter only and will not carry over to the following year.
The principal or designee may review extenuating circumstances resulting in a loss of privilege(s). The principal’s decision is final. Principal review is only intended to reinstate privileges that have been lost as described above. It is not intended to impose harsher discipline than what is outlined herein and in another district policy.
Wesley Chapel High School has partnered with Health Hero to offer in-school vaccines
to your child for no cost. Register your child today — complete the consent form we will
be sending home and send it back to our school. The clinic will be available Thursday, October 6th.
Health Hero makes immunizations available to every child to stop diseases like the flu in
their tracks and reduce absenteeism in schools. Sign your child up and help us stop the flu
in its tracks! https://www.beahealthhero.com/for-parents
We sold out early last year. The only way to guarantee you get a yearbook is to preorder it early in the school year. This period will end March 3rd. Parents, if you purchase through the Student Pay portal, PLEASE double check your student's account. If you are not sure, email me (Mrs. Ingram) and I can tell you. Last year we had a number of seniors who thought their parent paid for a book, but the parent had paid for something else, like senior fees. It's heartbreaking to tell these seniors that we do not have a book for them. Before preorders end, we will post a list of everyone who has ordered. Please encourage your students to check this list to avoid this situation. Yearbooks can be purchased through Walsworth's site or through Pasco's Student Pay portal. If you are looking to pay by cash or check, please contact me directly. Current cost is $85, which will increase to $90 starting on September 1st.
If you have any questions regarding school photos or yearbooks, please email me at email@example.com

Costa Rica Trip
Mrs. Taylor, one of our science teachers, is leading a student trip to Costa Rica next summer. “Adventuring and Volunteering” includes some volunteer activities such as planting trees to help with reforestation and handing out supplies at local schools. It also includes fun adventures such as kayaking, ziplining, and swimming in a hot spring.
This is a great opportunity for students to expand their world view, gain confidence and maturity, and make a difference to a community in need. Additionally, students can receive volunteer hours that count towards Bright Futures during the trip.
There will be a zoom meeting on Monday September 26th at 7 pm for parents and students who are interested in the trip. Use the link below to attend.
