Preparing for the First Day of School:
Review the 2023-24 WCPSS Student/Parent Handbook to familiarize yourself with rules and expectations in school, on the way to and from school, and at school-sponsored activities.
WakeID & PowerSchool Access
Students: Make sure you're able to access WakeID Portal to access student email, PowerSchool account, Canvas, Google Classroom, and other important platforms. Watch this video on how to Reset Your WakeID and/or access the WCPSS Tech Guides for helpful information. Once you've accessed your WakeID Portal, make sure to do the following:
- Log into PowerSchool to view your class schedule (available in August)
- Check each of your teachers' Canvas/Google Classroom sites
- Check your WCPSS email account for messages from your teachers
Parents/Guardians: We highly encourage parents/guardians to set up their own PowerSchool account, rather than using their child's account to log in. To set up a Parent PowerSchool account, use this link.
If you have any issues setting up your accounts, please visit this link for more information
Parent Canvas Access
The WCPSS Tech Guides includes information on how to use Canvas, video tutorials, and Frequently Asked Questions.
Families can create Canvas Observer accounts by following the step-by-step instructions.
Once school starts, we will schedule parent-education nights here at WSHS to assist parents with account setups and to support families with this new tool that will enhance school and family communications.
