Dear WSHS Guardians and Students,
The end of a long and challenging year is finally upon us. Please stay focused on your grades as we conclude the end of the 4th nine weeks. Remember, academic progress can always be monitored by checking your Skyward account online.
The guidance department has received requests for information on summer school. An issue we want to make you aware of is that with the earlier start of school this coming fall, summer school will start earlier than in previous years. There will only be a one week between the end of the school year on Wednesday, June 9th and when summer school begins on Wednesday, June 16th. Please advised, students in grades 7-12 will be able to retake classes in Math, English, Science, Reading and Social Studies if they received a failing grade and/or did not meet a prerequisite. Refer to the ASD Course Description Book for grade level credits and graduation requirements. Should the need arise for you to participate in summer school this year, we have included information below for your planning purposes.
2021 SUMMER SCHOOL
Summer school will be available at NO COST this year. The application process will be strictly online this year and will be posted for your convenience on the WSHS home page under News and Announcements.
Summer school runs from June 16th through July 16th for a maximum of 2 credits. Students will have the opportunity to work at their own pace from their high school building or virtually from home during the 5-week session. For additional support, teachers will be available for in person assistance Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am-11:00 am at each of the high schools. (The summer school program is entirely online and no “packets” will be provided.)
Students must attend the initial in-person meeting at their selected building at 9am on June 16th for login instructions and to acquire equipment if needed. Please contact Mr. Treglia at WSHS (724-783-7040) or Mr. Cominos at AHS (724-548-7600) for more information. Registration is currently available on our homepage: https://wshs.asd.k12.pa.us.
As we look to conclude this year, we hope you have a relaxing and safe summer. The start of our 2021-2022 school year begins August 25th and will be here before we know it. Please do not hesitate to contact us at WSHS with any questions or concerns.
