September 9th

Good evening WECHS Family, Welcome back! It’s so exciting to have students back on campus and while this year is different, we’re glad you’re here. Students will need their signed attestation forms before leaving home as they will be required to show these to their bus drivers and in carline. Since fewer students are on campus, student drivers please fill the lower parking lots before parking in the upper lot. Please remember that in order to ensure the safety of students and staff, students will not be allowed in the building before 7:30AM. The exterior doors will be locked and all students will enter through the gym to have their temperature checked before they enter the building. We appreciate your understanding and if you have any questions, please call the office at 336.838.6247. Thank you and have a great evening.
