This is Mrs. Cox, principal of WAAT. Here are our weekly updates.
As students return to the school building this week for testing and on March 1st for instruction, I want to remind families of our safety protocols. Students are required to wear masks. If a student does not have a mask, one will be provided when they arrive at school. We will also check temperatures before students enter the building. Children with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will need to return home. We also want to remind families that if your student is diagnosed with COVID-19, please call the main office to let us know. The district will continue its process of sending out a message to families and staff when there are positive cases and contacts in schools. We are excited about our students' return and their safety is a priority.
Our 11th-grade students will take the ACT on Tuesday, February 23rd and our 10th-grade students will take the Pre-ACT on Thursday, February 25th. Students can enter the building at 10:00 a.m. Bus information has been emailed to each student that requested transportation during our January phone calls. Please have your child check his or her email tonight for this information. The times are approximate. Students should go to their bus stop five to ten minutes early. If your child did not receive bus information but needs to ride the bus, please call the WAAT front office by noon on Monday, February 22nd.
We will start contacting families to share which day your child will be on campus beginning March 1st. Please review your child’s grades. If they are struggling to complete their assignments, please consider allowing them to come on campus. To change your child’s placement, please contact Mrs. Cox by noon on Monday, February 22nd. Also, for any of our super-seniors taking their final high school classes, it is strongly suggested they come on campus to take those classes face-to-face. On-campus instruction will begin on March 1st.
The final days to order a yearbook are approaching. Please place your order on the Lifetouch website as soon as possible. The last day to order a yearbook is March 15th. Also, if your child has not submitted a selfie, please tell him or her to email me directly at email@example.com.
If you have any questions, please contact the school at 252-265-4038.
Have an awesome evening!
