Bridge Bulletin 8.14.2021

Message from Mrs. Abney

Many of you attended our webinar sessions this week where we discussed the Back-to-School plan for WSHS students. Please click here to view the recordings.  We have added an FAQ document based on your questions and you can find those  here: Return to School FAQ.pdf

As a reminder, our New Student Orientation will take place on August 19.  This is for rising ninth graders, rising tenth graders who have never been inside WSHS, and all other students new to WSHS.  More information can be found here.   

The first day of school is August 23 and it will be an even day (Blocks 1, 2, 4, 6). Please plan to bring your laptop, a writing utensil and a notebook or paper.  Teachers will go over any additional supplies needed during the first week of school.  We are looking forward to seeing you!  

 

Save The Dates

Technology Information

In preparation for the 2021-22 school year, we have prepared important student laptop information. 

 

 If your student has not been issued a school laptop, our tech team will be ready to assist them by grade level on the first day of school. More information will be shared by 1st period teachers on the first day of school.  

 

If your student has been issued a school laptop, view this news announcement about our August 18 Student Laptop Check-in Day
