Seniors and their families should be aware of the upcoming events:
Students in grades 9-11 will be recognized by their teachers during our second annual Awards Day held in the Commons at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 22. Students who are being recognized will receive invitations for family members to attend the event.
No School - Memorial Day
WHS will be closed Monday, May 28 for Memorial Day. Classes will resume on Tuesday, May 29.
In accordance with state and local policies, state EOC exams will account for 20% of a student's overall grade in the course. Failure to take the exam will result in a grade of zero in that grading category. Students are not able to exempt state EOC exams. While most testing sessions will take place in the morning, we will have several afternoon testing sessions. Students will be assigned specific testing sessions to attend. Those testing times and locations will be posted throughout the school and will be communicated via email to the classroom teachers. The only students eligible to receive testing accommodations are those with a 504, IEP, or an ESOL plan. Parents, please refrain from scheduling appointments or other out-of-school activities on the date(s) your child will be testing. Also, please be sure to have your child at school on time. Electronic devices will be collected prior to testing and will be returned to the students after the testing session is complete. See the schedule below for the administration of state EOC exams.
In order for students in grades 9-11 to receive credit for missing work (including both major and minor assignments), students must complete and turn in those assignments by Friday, May 25. All major assessments must be completed in order to receive credit for a course. Any assignment that has not been completed by May 25 will receive a failing grade.
