“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.

Dear families,

We hope you’ve been enjoying your summer, and we look forward to students returning for the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 13.

Here are a few important reminders:

Polk County Public Schools will NOT be imposing a districtwide ban on backpacks and lunchboxes, and will NOT require clear backpacks or lunchboxes for the 2018-19 school year.

However, individual schools can impose restrictions on backpacks and lunchboxes. Please check with your child’s school to see if any restrictions are in place for the upcoming school year.

Please be advised that trench coats are prohibited districtwide this year.

Hooded sweatshirts are acceptable, but hoods may not be worn during school hours.

Student identification badges will be provided to students in grades 6 – 12 to ensure the safety and security of students and staff. Students must wear these ID badges at all times around the neck when on school grounds.

Again, we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to students returning for the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 13.

Thank you.

Estimadas familias,

Esperamos que ustedes hayan disfrutado de su verano, y esperamos con anticipación a los estudiantes que regresen el primer día de clases el lunes, 13 de agosto.

Aquí hay algunos consejos importantes:

Las escuelas públicas del Condado de Polk no va a imponer una prohibición de mochilas y loncheras y no requiere claras mochilas o loncheras para el año 2018-19.

Sin embargo, cada escuela puede imponer restricciones en mochilas y loncheras. Por favor verifique con su escuela para ver si alguna restricción fue impuesta para este año escolar.

Tenga en cuenta que gabardinas están prohibidas en todo el distrito este año.

Sudaderas con capucha son aceptables, pero las capuchas no se pueden usar durante las horas escolares.

Placas de identificación serán repartidas a los estudiantes en grados 6-12 para asegurar la seguridad de los estudiantes y personal. Los estudiantes deben usar esta identificación en todo momento alrededor del cuello cuando en la escuela.

Una vez más, esperamos disfruten el resto de su verano, y esperamos al regreso de los estudiantes al primer día de clases el lunes, agosto 13.

Career Program

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!
