Online Attendance Reporting Now Available – WHPS now has an Online Absence Reporting Form on our website. When reporting an absence through this method, please use the email addresses we have on file with your contact information. This will reduce the number of follow up calls we may have to make. You can still leave a message on our voice mail box between the hours of 4:00 pm and 8:00 am, email your child’s teacher (please also send to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) in case the teacher is absent that day.

We have one family pass for admission to the LRC that our families are welcome to borrow for a week at a time. Note: Due to Covid 19, the use of the LRC amenities must be booked.

Junior High Students Leaving School Grounds – If you wish to give your junior high student permission to leave school grounds during the lunch hours, please log into your parent account to complete the form. Please note that if students choose to leave the school for the lunch hour, they are not able to reenter the school until 12:45 pm. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
Student Pictures – Picture day has been postponed to February 12, 2021
For the 2020-2021 school year:
There will be NO VOLUNTEERING at this time. This, unfortunately, means no hot lunches, microwave days, bake sales, parents coming in to read, and parents coming into the school with their children.
The elementary milk program will not run until further notice.
