Hello Huskies,


Monday, May 29, the school is closed for Memorial Day.  I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend and celebrate those who have lost their lives protecting our freedom.


Access our final exam schedule here or on the homepage of our website.


Students enrolled in Math I, Math 3, English 2, and Biology will take the EOC State Test at the end of this semester. All students who pass an EOC tested course but score Non-Proficient on the EOC State Test will be eligible for a Remediation and Readministration opportunity, which includes both Fall and Spring Semesters. Should your child meet the criteria for the program, parents will receive an invitation for their child to attend the program after the EOC testing window closes for our school on Friday, June 9. The program dates are June 12 and 14. Transportation and meals will be provided.


We need your feedback.  Help us make your child’s school experience as positive and beneficial as possible by giving honest, thoughtful responses to the questions in our family survey.  Survey closes TODAY!  Access the survey by going to bit.ly/WCPSSFamilySurvey
