There has been an update on our Semester and Final Examination Board Policy 4.7001. As you know, this policy was pulled for review several months ago with proposed changes that would affect senior exam exemptions. Though the WCS School Board voted last night to pass the proposed change that requires no unexcused absences for senior exam exemption consideration, the updated policy will not go into effect until next school year. With that decision, please note that there will be no changes to this year’s senior exemption requirements. We will continue with the same expectations as last semester for the rest of this school year. Please see the policy linked below for senior exemption expectations and let us know if you have any further questions.

For more information, view the Semester and Final Examination Board Policy 4.7001  and begin reading at line 21.

The library is playing matchmaker. This month, check out specially wrapped books from our “Blind Date with a Book” display. Going out on a blind date is a lot like opening up a new book – you never know what kind of experience you’re going to have. Inside each book is a “Rate Your Date” slip. Once you’ve gone on your blind date, fill out the slip and turn it in to the library by the end of the month for a chance to win!
