WECHS Principal's Weekly Message 8/5/2022

Happy Friday!


We’re back! We had a great time meeting our newest students at camp yesterday. The first day of school for the 9th and 10th graders is Monday, August 8. Everyone is excited about the new school year. 


As a reminder, WCPSS does have a Dress Code, and we ask that you support us. We are on open campuses with college faculty from whom the students will need recommendations and other health sciences opportunities. Dressing appropriately is key. We ask that students are covered from chest to mid (middle of) thigh with clothing that is not see-through. The WCPSS policy is linked above.

The attached document contains important information and resources available in our community.
