WHS Announcements


    Due to the number of days we have missed for hurricanes and snow-storms, the decision has been made to change our exam schedule in an effort to give students as much time as possible to master the material they will be tested on. As of today(12/15/18), exams will begin on Tuesday, January 15th and conclude on Friday, January 18th. The first day for students to attend second semester classes will now be Tuesday, January 22nd. This is subject to change if we continue to miss days due to snow or any other natural disaster, but January the 15th is the earliest date that exams will begin. We will communicate the plan for students taking Caldwell classes and early grads in the coming days.

    Thanks and please stay safe!
