Cougar Families,

North Carolina state immunization law requires that all students are up to date with immunizations by the first day of school. Seniors are now required to have the second dose of the meningococcal vaccine. You are encouraged to immediately check with your doctor to ensure your child is up to date and provide the school with an updated copy of the shot record. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call 919-562-6300 to schedule an appointment at the Health and Human Services Northern Regional Center. Do not delay in providing this information to our school. You can email the records to, fax to 919-670-4378, or drop off records in the main office, Monday-Friday from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.


Students new to WFHS or those who were virtual last year, may attend 10th-12th grade New Student Walk Through on 8/25 from 10-11. Students can come and walk their schedule, so they know where to go on the first day of school. Student Volunteers will be in the halls to help show students where to go.


Schedules will be available for all students to view in PowerSchool on 8/17. At that time if a student sees a mistake, they can fill out a schedule correction form. This form will be posted on our website on 8/17. Please refrain from emailing counselors regarding changes.


The Athletic Booster Club will be selling Cougar Passes this year differently than in years past. This year they are selling a year long pass that gives the passholder entry into all home games, for all sports during all seasons. Passes will not be accepted at High School OT Football Jamboree, endowment games, away games or at conference or state playoff games. They can be used at all home games for all sports that charge entry fees.


If you do not purchase a Cougar Pass, you will pay at the gate using GoFan - All tickets sold at the gate will continue to be sold virtually with GoFan.


Cougar Pass Prices are as follows:

Family Pass includes 5 cards for immediate family members and cost $175

Individual Student Pass cost $40

Individual Adult Pass cost $75


Passes can be purchased online at the new Booster Club website - We are working on a schedule for selling passes in person and will post that to our website.


The Athletic Booster Club is using a new communication software this year called BoosterHub. The Athletic Directors will not be using Remind this year. All Alerts & Messages will come through BoosterHub. To get access please visit our website, and Click the Sign Up for Alerts tab. Follow the correct link for your Fall sports team or students or Parents. You will need to download the app for full use.
