WBHS Update 5/11/2020

Graduation- Seniors I have some exciting news.  We will have a graduation ceremony at the football stadium this year.  With the new guidelines that went out we have some flexibility to return to a more normal ceremony.  We will have graduation on June 5th at 7:00 PM.  If for some reason we have to cancel due to weather we will have it on June 6th at 8:00.  We are limited to a crowd of 500; therefore, each student will be given 6 guest tickets.  The gates will open at 6:00 for guests to enter.  There will be no reserved seating in the stadium.  We ask all families to try and set together and follow social distancing protocol.  We will notify you when tickets are available for pick up.  Please make sure you are sending Mr. Crim scholarship information with confirmation from the school/agency.  We plan to try and acknowledge awards on graduation night.  Any senior that did not make it to locker pick up and/or pay senior fees may do that this Wednesday between 11:00 – 1:00.  We will continue to update you as information becomes available.

Thanks,
Mr. Lawley

 

 

WBHS Update 5/4/2020-

Seniors,

We have cleaned your lockers out and placed all items in individual marked bags with your name on it.  If you have paid your senior fees we put your cap and gown in the locker bag.  We do not have all of our honor chords and stuff in but will mark and hand out what we have.  If you have not paid senior fees or owe Jostens money for ordered merchandise, this can be done at pick up.  Mr. Scott Moore will be present from Jostens at pick up and can answer any questions you may have.  Pick up is scheduled for Wednesday, May 6 from 2:00 – 5:00.  I am sure there are many questions you may have, we will continue to pass along information as plans are made and we receive feedback from others.  The scheduled locker pick up is for seniors only.  Other grade levels will be scheduled at a later date.
Thanks,
Mr. Lawley

WBHS Update 3/31/2020

Stakeholders, thank you for working with our school in this difficult time.  School as we have known it is taking a drastic change.  We are providing students with the ability to complete and turn in work in a combination of distance learning and if needed packet styled assignments.  The work that will be graded is the same material regardless of the platform used.  If a student has the ability to check their school email, they essentially can participate in the distance learning.  All assignments will be emailed by the student’s teacher.  Students, please make sure you email your teacher so that we know everyone has work and is up and running.  For the safety of all involved we hope the majority, if not all students, can participate in our distance education program.  If a student cannot do this, we need to be notified by phone, 938-9002, on Thursday or Friday of this week 4/2 -4/3/2020 between 8-3.  Please make sure you speak with Ms. Pam and she has the student’s name that must have packet work.  If we are not notified the students work may be delayed and their school year extended past the typical students finish date.  We hope to finish the school year by the end of May, this is not set in stone, but it can be as late as June 5th if needed.  It is our hope all students receive their emailed work by 4/6/2020.  Packets will be picked up on 4/6 and/or 4/7/2020.  Please understand that for the safety of all, no parent or student will be allowed inside of the school building.  We will contact students needing packet work with specific pickup and return directions. 

To ensure student success we are going to try and not overwhelm the students and home support.  Work will be provided in 10 day increments and the daily assignment per core academic or required elective course should take from 30 – 40 minutes to complete.  The course work will not require the need for a textbook.  The required elective courses are Health, Life PE, Career Prep, and career tech courses that lead to credentialing; essentially, these courses are required to graduate.  All non-required elective courses will receive the 3rd 9 weeks grade as the final grade for the course unless a student request work to bring the course up to a passing grade or some similar situation.  ACCESS courses that students are enrolled in are active and all students should be working on the assignments.

Lockers and essential items on campus:  If you have personal items that you desperately need please call the school and give the student’s name and locker number.  This will have to be done on the same date and times as the notification of students needing packet work.  If you do not need the items at this time we ask that you leave them in your locker and when the social distancing has been relaxed we will allow you in the building to clean out your locker.  Remember you do not need textbooks from lockers, textbooks will not be given out to students.  Our goal is for the needed personal items to be picked up on 4/9/2020.  We will give more directional procedures to those that will be picking up items.

As other needs/issues arise, further information will be provided.

We thank you for your support and relationship with WBHS,

Mr. Lawley
