WFHS Principal Update Week of December 4th

Good evening WFHS Students and Families,

We have little over three weeks before Winter Break. Students should receive an interim for Quarter two this week.

Per State Legislation--Final exams MUST be the last five school days of the semester.   For the 2023-2024 school year, final exams will be January 17-23 (Fall Semester) and June 6-12 (Spring Semester)Students should plan on having exams on any/all of those dates.  Please plan appointments accordingly.  No Educational Leave requests will be approved for exam dates.

From Student Services

On November 16th Student Services hosted a parent night for 9th -11th grade parents. Below are links to presentations given that night. (Please note this is not all of the presentations only the ones given by WFHS staff members)

9th grade presentation-

Academy for Construction and Design Careers (ACDC) presentation-

Counselors went to all English 3 classes on Thursday and Friday of this past week to give 11th grade students information about graduation/promotion requirements, post-secondary planning and more. Linked is the presentation that was given. Counselors will give this information again to those in English 3 next semester.

Wake Forest High School is now offering late arrival for seniors and those enrolled in CCP for next semester. Our updated late arrival/early release form is linked but can also be found on the student services website. If your student is interested in late arrival or early release, please have them fill out the request form. Please note that turning in the form does not guarantee approval and that even if a student is approved it can be revoked due to excessive absences or poor grades. If there are questions regarding this new option, please reach out to your students' counselor.

Kind regards,Melissa ThomasWFHS Principal
