WWHS Schedule--Please read Update below

I know we all are working every day to adapt to changes and figure out how to manage this uncertain time. Remote Learning begins March 30th. Teachers will follow this schedule each day.
If a student cannot interact with their teacher or student group during the designated times, all daily lessons will be available on Canvas, through other digital platforms, or by paper/pencil assignments. Parents and/or students will need to pick-up paper/pencil assignments in the front lobby outside the main office. For this week’s assignments, students who have not already picked those up can get them on Monday, March 30. For the weeks ahead, the pick up time will be Friday between the hours of 11am and 4pm. If you are unable to come to school to pick-up your student's weekly assignments, please call 336-903-6710. We will make every effort to get this to you. Teachers have attempted to make contact with all of their students. If you or your student have not been contacted, please let us know.

West Wilkes High School facilities will not be available to outside groups (travel ball teams, youth sports, etc.) during this time.

Click on Headline above for flyers and more information.

The 1st Annual Athletic Booster Club Golf Tournament at Oakwoods Country Club has been postponed due to Coronavirus situation. The tournament will be rescheduled for Thursday August 27 at 12:00 PM. The rain date will be Tuesday September 1st. We feel it is on our best interest to be a responsible community group and
adhere to the State of NC along with Wilkes County Offices and Board of Education recommendations to avoid crowds of 50 or more people. For anyone who has participated as a sponsor and does not want to continue their sponsorship because of the postponement, please let us know. We will arrange to repay money if necessary.
Also as most of you are aware Merle Fest 2020 has also been canceled for this year. During these trying times the West Wilkes Athletic Booster Club will continue to support the athletes of West Wilkes High School any way we can. Thanks for your support.

H. Webb and M. Whittington have been selected as the March WCC Career and College Promise student(s) of the month. They are both seniors at West Wilkes High School and will graduate this spring. Webb and Whittington worked closely with the West Wilkes Career Coach on their academic plans their junior and senior years in high school. This summer, both students will complete their Associate in Arts degree before they transfer to UNC Chapel Hill in the Fall 2020. This is a phenomenal accomplishment and both students have worked extremely hard. The plan to complete their degree included taking several WCC courses and AP course offerings. They are both active in extracurricular activities at West Wilkes High School such as HOSA, Peer Tutoring, and Student Council.
