  • Year End Reminders

    To Williams Field Parents,

    As the school year begins to wind down, I would like to take this opportunity to remind our shared community of common expectations for the learning environment.

    Food and Drink

    For reasons of students safety as well as maintaining a healthy learning environment, students are only permitted to bring bottled water into the classrooms and on campus.

    Deliveries will no longer be accepted for food or drink items.  In order to ensure a safe and sanitary environment that supports and maintains the health and welfare of all of our students, they are welcome to pack a lunch or purchase a prepared meal. 

    As a reminder, our high school is a closed campus.  Please visit with your student about what that means in terms of not being able to leave the school, unless checked out by a parent or guardian, during their school day.  Once a student arrives on campus, they are required to stay on campus until their school day comes to a close.

    Dress Code

    We encourage students to take pride in their attire as it relates to the school setting.  Students should dress in a manner that, in addition to the following guidelines, takes into consideration the educational environment, safety, health, and welfare of self and others.  Clothing that immodestly exposes the chest, abdomen, midriff, genital area, or buttock is not permitted. Clothing may not display or suggest obscene language or symbols. Clothing may not display or advertise alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or any illegal or controlled substance or item. 

    Please ensure that your student dresses appropriately for school success. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

    Student Attendance and Participation

    Attendance and participation in class are key to student success.  For these reasons, we ask that you ensure your student is here, ready to learn every day.  Interruptions to instruction will be minimal and we ask that students utilize passing periods or lunch time for personal business.  To this end, students will be asked to keep backpacks safely stored under their seats and cell phones away during class time. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions as we head into the final weeks of the semester.

     

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Terri Wattawa

    Principal

    Williams Field High School
