Message From The Principal
Students and families: I hope that you are enjoying your summer break and I look forward to
welcoming you to the 2016-2017 school year! In addition to relaxation, there are many activities you
can do to prepare for the new school year. Summer is a great time to earn Student Service Learning
(SSL) hours and we encourage you to utilize this time to volunteer in the community. A copy of the
SSL form is located on the school webpage and can also be obtained in our counseling center. Students need 75 SSL hours in order to graduate from high school.
In addition, students enrolled in various AP courses, should be working on their AP Summer
assignments. If you need to obtain a copy, please visit the counseling center. Summer is also a great
time to read. While we do not have a summer reading list, we encourage you to visit the public library
and enjoy a few books, paper or electronic, during your vacation.
During the summer, we have hired new staff, completed student schedules, and cleaned our
entire building. I would like to welcome our new Assistant Principal, Mr. Brad Delauter, who will be
working with students in grades 10 and 12. Also, our teachers have attended various workshops, trainings, and conferences this summer learning about the Secondary Essential Curriculum, engaging instructional strategies, and technology applications. Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation and we
look forward to seeing you energized and ready to learn! See you in August!

School Policies
ATTENDANCE
Attendance is the responsibility of students and parents.
When a student is absent, every effort will be made to contact the parent(s) at work or home to verify the absence.
Parents are encouraged to notify the attendance office of
their student’s absence. An absence/parent note MUST be
submitted to the attendance office the morning the student
returns. Failure to submit a note the day of return will be
considered unexcused. The student will have one additional day to submit a note and have the absence excused. A
student whose absence is unexcused will be given a zero
on all graded material missed during the absence.
 Absence/Parent notes must contain student name,
grade, date of absence, reason, phone number to reach
parent and parent signature.
 Legal documents are preferred as proof of absence
(dr., dental, court, etc.).
 Any student who is absent three or more consecutive
days may be required to obtain a doctor’s note.
 Exceeding twelve days per year will require a doctor’s
note; parent notes will not be accepted as an excused
absence after twelve absences. Washington County
school policy allows for the reduction of credits
when a student has missed more than 12 days for
the school year.
EARLY DISMISSAL FOR APPOINTMENTS
Students must bring a note signed by a parent with a phone
number where they can be reached. Students will give the
note to their first period teacher who will then send it to the
attendance office for processing. The attendance office
will issue the early dismissal slip and deliver it to the student. If the student forgets their note, a parent must bring a
valid ID and come to the attendance office to sign them
out.
TARDINESS TO SCHOOL
School begins promptly each day at 8:45 a.m. and is dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Students arriving after 8:45 a.m. are
tardy to school and must report to the attendance office
before being admitted to class. Failure to officially check
in to school will result in disciplinary measures. Students
must bring a parent note or legal documentation for proof
of tardiness. Excessive unexcused tardies may lead to
credit denial of an earned credit.
ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS
Robert Rimmel—grades 9 and 11
Brad Delauter—grades 10 and 12
CELL PHONE POLICY
Students are prohibited from using iPods, cell phones,
MP3 players, or any other such device during instructional periods. Under the direction of administration/
classroom teachers, smart phones, e-readers and other
electronic devices may be used during instructional periods. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen electronic devices brought to school by a student(s).
DRESS CODE
The dress code shall apply to all school activities during
the school day. Exceptions for legitimate reasons such as a
medical condition or religious practice, as well as for specialized classes or activities, will be considered and can be
granted by the school administration on a case by case basis.
The school administration reserves the right to approve or
disapprove any items not addressed in the policy and procedure. Decisions to approve or disapprove items will be
based on the goal of providing a safe and orderly environment for the education of all students.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL PAPERWORK
Reminder to parents: A lot of information will be coming
home with your student the first few days of school. It is
imperative that ALL forms and paperwork are filled out
completely, accurately, and returned by the deadlines!
VACATION PER COUNTY POLICY
Family vacation absences are considered lawful only if
they have prior written approval of the assistant principal
and do not exceed three days per school year. Written requests must be made at least ten days in advance of the
requested vacation absence, and after approval , parents
and students are responsible for requesting students’ assignments. Teachers need at least four days’ notice for
preparation of student materials.
TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN
EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES:
A student must attend all classes on time the
day of the activity or practice, and a full day
after the activity or practice or they will not be
eligible to attend practice on that day, and they
may not participate in the next scheduled
regular season or post-season contest/event. A full day is 8:45 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.

What are the HSA and PARCC
Assessments?
Maryland uses the High School Assessments (H. S. A.) and the PARCC assessments to gauge how well students are mastering the standards and ultimately how ready they are to succeed in college and careers.
H. S. A.
PARCC
*Biology
*English 9, 10, and 11
*LSN Government
*Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry
Students in the above English and math classes will take PARCC assessments between April 4 and May 13,
2016. Students in Biology and LSN Government will take the H. S. A. assessments in May.
Please join the staff of WHS in stressing the importance of these tests to your children. We want all of our
students to succeed; we believe that attitude, attendance, and motivation will play a large part in their success.
PARENTVUE
We request all parents’/guardians’ Parentvue accounts be activated. Paper report cards are no longer being sent
home and this is a excellent way for you to keep informed of your child’s grades, attendance and contact their
teachers. Please contact the Counseling Center for your activation key.
In addition, WCPS has eliminated the paper application for free and reduced lunches. We ask that all parents
go to http://schoollunchapp.com/ to apply for free and reduced lunches even if you feel you will not qualify. Parents may also put money on their child’s meal account at www.myschoolbucks.com.

WHS Choral Department
The Williamsport High School Choral Department welcomes everyone back for a school year that promises to be
memorable, starting with our fall concert in October, All-County Chorus in November, and the WHS Music Department Community Concert in December.
Last year, our students traveled to New York. They also performed with the Maryland Symphony Orchestra,
Kenny Rogers, and composer Eric Whitacre. This year, students will have the opportunity to perform at Disney
World and some will be invited to sing with the West Virginia University Honors Choir, which will bring over
500 high school students from all over the country!
Our program has grown so much these past few years and with that growth comes many needs. However, our
biggest need is YOU! We need our entire choral community - students, families and friends - to get involved. If
you haven't heard from one of our booster officers already, you will be contacted soon. All of you have talents
that can help - you will be surprised at how little you can do to make a BIG difference in helping us reach our
goals.

STEM Academy Program at WHS
Williamsport High School offers a program for all county students called the STEM Academy program. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Today, an understanding of scientific and mathematical principles, a working knowledge of computer
hardware and software, and the problem solving skills developed by courses in STEM are necessary
for most jobs. According to STEM Caucus Steering Committee, Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM) Education is responsible for providing our country with three kinds of intellectual capital:
—Scientists and engineers who will continue the research and development that is central to the economic growth of our country.
—Technologically proficient workers who are capable of dealing with the demands of a science based,
high technology workforce.
—Scientifically literate voters and citizens who make intelligent decisions about public policy and
who understand the world around them.
Any student involved in the STEM program will be required to take the following core preparatory
courses during their first two years in the program: honors biology, honors chemistry, CC algebra I,
CC honors geometry, and introduction to engineering design (IED). School counselor, Mr. Longnecker, can answer any questions you may have and provide additional details about scheduling your classes.
If you are interested in applying for the STEM program schedule a meeting with Mr. Longnecker

Taking Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
Advanced Placement or AP classes are college-level
courses taken in high school. A national test for each
class from the College Board is given in May. The test is
scored from zero to five. Some colleges will award college credit based on these test scores if a score of three
or better is earned. Some colleges require a five. Check
with each school you are thinking of attending to learn
what score is required for credit.
Freshmen need to begin planning to take AP classes.
Students need to look at their schedule to be sure AP
classes can be taken later. That may mean taking two
math classes or two science classes, etc. in one year so
you are in a position to take the classes you want.
All colleges like to see these classes on your transcript.
A good grade in AP classes is proof you can and are taking challenging course work throughout high school. It
proves that you can do college level work. These classes
are a plus in the college admissions process.
awarded to students who accept the challenges of more
rigorous courses of study, while ensuring maintenance of
a high grade point average. Rigorous courses are identified as receiving “accelerated credit” or “AP credit” in

Athletic Booster Club
The Williamsport Wildcat Athletic Booster Club, Inc. (WWABC) exists to support our athletes, coaches, and generally athletic program at WHS. The general membership of WWABC mostly consists of the parents
of student athletes. However, anyone interested in the athletic programs of WHS is invited and encouraged to
join. In order to operate smoothly, the club has an elected executive board. The board members include President - Chris Malott, Vice President - Eric McVicker, Treasurer - Mary Lee Kendle, and Secretary - Sherri
Jamison. General Membership meetings are the 1 st Monday of every month. Please visit the website http://
www.whsathleticboosters.org for dates and times of meetings and other events. Our goal to expand our current
level of support is directly related to the number of active booster members. Please consider how you can get
involved to make WHS athletics even better than it is today!
WWABC has supported athletics by sponsoring athletic fees on an as needed basis. The club publishes
a printed sports program showcasing our teams and senior athletes. We made a monetary contribution to help
build a new softball fence. The Boosters funded the purchase of a Bocce State Championship banner as well as
funding coaches’ clinics, summer sports leagues, and a portion of the year-end sports banquet. One of the most
important roles of WWABC is to award 2 College scholarships to student athletes every year.
The WWABC is bringing something else exciting to WHS! The Boosters have formed a public-private
partnership with the BOE to improve our current WHS Athletic Facilities.
Our new multi-purpose room,
girls’ team room, and concession stand was completed in November 2015. The loan payment is being funded
with our fundraising efforts through our Capital Campaign – “Building A Wildcat Legacy”. We are continuing
to collect donations and pledges from individuals, foundations and businesses. Please contact Sherri Jamison,
Secretary, WWABC, at [email protected] or 301-988-6571.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
The W.H.S. Physical Education Department would like to welcome all new and returning students! All students enrolled in a Physical
Education course during the upcoming school year will need the following items:
Round neck T-shirt (no V-necks, scoop necks, tank tops or cut-offs)
Athletic Shorts or Sweatpants (appropriate length, no zippers or buttons)
Sneakers that tie (no boots or slip on shoes)
$3 lock rental fee
We want every student to be actively involved every day, so there are no “dress cuts”. If a student does not have proper shoes or clothing,
we will provide the items for them so that they can participate.
If the student has a current medical condition that will excuse them from class activities, please get a note from a doctor that explains
what the student can and cannot do in Physical Education class. It is very helpful if the student has this note when school begins in August. If the student has asthma, a form needs to be filled out with the school nurse.
A course syllabus will come home on the first day of school for you to look over.
Also, the WHS PE Department is now offering an Essence course through Hagerstown Community College.
Students who enroll in the Individual Assessment course will earn 1 college credit at a very discounted price.
Contact Mrs. Row or Mr. Vickers with questions.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact a member of our staff.
