WFHS Principal Update - Week of August 28th

Good evening WFHS Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are looking forward to an amazing year at WFHS.

Congratulations to the Senior Class of 2024. We hope you have an amazing year as you prepare to graduate on Monday, June 10, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. at the Raleigh Convention Center.

As you prepare for the first day of school you will find a few reminders which will help with a smooth transition to our new school year.  

We expect possible delays in carpool and busses for the first few days. Please review information regarding transportation on our school website under Families and Transportation. With your help we can get everyone into the building and ready to learn. You may want to plan to be at WFHS earlier than normal this first week.

2023-2024 Traffic Pattern – Please click on the link below for the 2023-2024 Traffic Pattern.

All students will report to Homeroom at 7:20 tomorrow morning to pick up their official schedule and other important information. Homeroom list will be posted for students to check along with staff who will be available to help students.

Student reminders:

Good attendance and being on time to class are vital for a student’s success. Please make sure you arrive on time and are in your classes when the bell rings. Plan so you can be on time.  We will be addressing tardies this year with Tardy Sweeps each day for each period. Students will hear more on this during grade level assemblies.

WCPSS has a dress code for students. Please refer to this Dress Code Policy to review the policy specifics. Students who are not in compliance with the dress code may be asked to address the violation.

School Safety – for the safety of students and staff we have a process for allowing students/visitors into the building. We are asking students to refrain from propping outside doors open with rocks or anything similar for any reason.  We are also asking students not to open the outside doors for others once classes have begun. Discipline may be assigned for non-compliance.

Student Services

Schedules are now live on the PowerSchool website. If a student had a schedule error, please have them fill out the course correction form. This form will be open Monday, 8/21-8/24 and 8/28-8/31. It will not reopen for the second semester, so all corrections need to be addressed at this time. Schedules are still subject to change prior to the first day of school. Students will receive their official schedule on Monday 8/28 in homeroom. 

Lunch Money and Numbers:

Money can be added to your account through or call (855) 832-5226 to enroll. Numbers are your child’s student ID.

Free and Reduced applications can be found on the WCPSS website

Senior Pictures – Seniors if you missed your Senior Portrait there are two makeup days. September 27th and September 28th are makeup days in the Media Center.

Kind regards,Melissa ThomasWFHS Principal
