Principal's Message

Parents and Students:
Smart Lunch is provided to students at Wakefield High School to give students time during an extended lunch period to study, complete makeup work and explore other academic interests. Its purpose is to provide opportunities for students to enrich their learning experience or receive academic help and support during the school day. Students whose course grades fall below a “C” are required to attend Smart Lunch tutorial sessions weekly. All students are strongly encouraged to participate in Smart Lunch to enhance their learning and partake in enrichment activities. Students who engage in inappropriate conduct or disruptive behavior during Smart Lunch will receive severe consequences for School Disturbance.
Principal Malik Bazzell
