“Run, Hide, Fight”-A Response to School Violence
We here at WHHS are proud of the level of safety on our campus. Please take a moment to view this video, as Polk County schools take another step to educate students, parents, and all other stakeholders on the important topic of keeping our campuses safe.
Parents and students, please be aware that there will be no checkouts after 1:00 p.m.
Students, please be aware that if you are caught leaving campus without permission it will result in an automatic 3 day OSS. (Out of school suspension).
Career Connections is a partnership between WHHS and the Chamber of Commerce. We match our students to professionals and offices for the career in which the student has an interest. The student meets with the professional after school hours so it does not interfere with class time. It is a great opportunity for our students to gain an understanding of the specific career in which they have expressed interest.
Often our students have opinions/ views about particular careers and this is a way for them to talk to the person that is actually in the field and get advice and guidance. All they need to do to sign up is go to Nikki Jordan (Room: 36-214) and she will give them the paperwork to sign. Please help encourage this program, it really is a fantastic learning opportunity!
