In order to include Prom, spring sports, and graduation in the yearbook, we have moved to a summer delivery. We are planning a distribution event in early August to pass out books, enjoy a cookout, and let students have one final get-together before they head their prospective ways. We understand some graduates might already be off on their next adventures, but, hopefully, the date will work for most. We will be in contact via IC and social media once more information is available. If you have any questions, please contact Kate Weston at kweston@wwusd.org.

ALL students in grades 9-11 need to return their Chromebooks and chargers to their Homeroom Teacher prior to leaving for the summer. Any student who has not returned their Chromebooks by 11:30 on Tuesday, June 7 will be charged the full cost of the machine and charger. All personal stickers / decals must be removed prior to returning. BUT do NOT remove the WUSD barcode as it may result in a fine.
