SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

What's Happening at WHS:


NEW! Phase 2 - Seeking direct input from residents in our community

Dear Friends,
 
Thank you for your responses to our recent surveys! They continue to play a significant role in our ability to support our community through this crisis.
 
During Phase 2 of our relief efforts we are also seeking direct input from residents in our community. Given that we cannot meet with groups of residents at this time, we prepared a brief survey to collect additional information about what they may be struggling with as a result of lost income, social distancing requirements, their health risks, social inequities and biases, and any barriers to accessing resources. We need to hear from them, and YOU can help us to reach as many residents as possible.
  • If you have a means of communicating with residents via email or text, please encourage them to complete our brief survey by directing them to www.cfcbr.org/survey/. We have prepared our survey in English and Spanish (Cuestionario Comunitario). All responses will be kept confidential.
  • Residents may also call Cristina Casado at 540-213-2150 to answer survey questions. Cristina can assist Spanish-speaking residents as well.
  • You may also send or print a PDF version of our survey for residents to complete. Residents may return their completed survey to you (Cristina will pick them up), or mail them to the Community Foundation (P.O. Box 815, Staunton, VA 24402).
  • Print or email PDF in English
  • Print or email PDF in Spanish
 
We would also like to ask you to consider posting this survey on your website and/or your social media outlets for the next two weeks. You can introduce the survey with this statement:
 
"The Community Foundation wants to know what matters most to YOU, particularly during these difficult times. One way your Community Foundation serves you is by getting financial resources to the organizations that can help you. We hear from them regularly, but it is important that they also hear directly from YOU."
 
Please take a moment to complete their confidential Community Survey.
 
In Spanish:
“Para saber cómo podemos ayudarle, necesitamos saber cuáles son sus necesidades, particularmente durante estos tiempos tan difíciles. Una manera como la Fundación puede apoyarle es ofreciendo recursos a las organizaciones comunitarias que lo pueden ayudar. Aunque estas organizaciones nos han informado sobre algunas necesidades, quisiéramos escuchar y aprender directamente de usted.
 
Por favor ayude a la Fundación llenando el siguiente Cuestionario Comunitario.
 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

NEW! Pandemic EBT cards available for households


Information about the Pandemic EBT payments for our students is attached (CLICK HERE). Dr. Barber sent out an email and phone call about these upcoming benefits earlier today (May 12, 2020). 

The P-EBT benefit is for all WPS students who receive free & reduced price meals, including all students at our three CEP schools; William Perry, Wenonah, and Wayne Hills. 
I am available to help with  any questions that you may have, although most information can be found on the  P-EBT Virginia Webpage
It is important that all households have the correct address listed in PowerSchool.  Incorrect addresses will cause a delay in receiving benefits, as those students who are not currently receiving benefits will have a physical card mailed to them.

Take care, 
Laura

May is Children's Mental Health Awareness Month

In past years, The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) has hosted in-person events to celebrate the day: youth speaker panel, movie screening, cookie break, tickets to a baseball game-just to name a few!  This year, we're doing something a bit different.

While we are all following the Governor's Stay-at-Home Order, DBHDS did not want to miss the importance of celebrating Children's Mental Health Awareness Day. Now, more than ever, we need to focus on our young persons mental health. The Office of Child and Family Services at DBHDS has created four info-graphics that you can share with families, stakeholders, or post on your social media accounts. These infographics can be viewed and downloaded here (bottom center of the page):

http://dbhds.virginia.gov/developmental-services/children-and-families/childrens-mental-health-awareness-month

We encourage you to plan virtual events or reach out to families in your community during this difficult time and please share these info-graphics as you see fit along with your local resources to connect with families.  If you are hosting a virtual event this year, we would love to know about it so we can promote it on our social media sites as well.  We know this year is challenging for all of us, and we appreciate your continued commitment to our most vulnerable children and families.

Pennies for Patients

Waynesboro High School Key Club is joining other schools in the country through Pennies for Patients, to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Until March 20th we are trying to raise at least $500, money which will help improve the lives of blood cancer patients and help find a cure for these cancers. 

Some important facts about Leukemia and Lymphoma:

  • Approximately every 3 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with blood cancer.
  • Leukemia is the #1 most diagnosed form of childhood cancer.
  • Approximately 80% of childhood cancer survivors develop a chronic health condition from their treatment.
  • More than 1.3 million people are living with or in remission from blood cancer.
  • More than 1/3 of blood cancer patients do not survive 5 years after diagnosis.

Click here to visit the WHS Fundraising Page.

Thank you for joining WHS Key Club in this fight against blood cancer!

Student Parking Announcement

Throughout this year, we have attempted to be creative and utilize as many parking areas as possible due to our ongoing renovation.  Unfortunately, this has caused us to have less spaces than normal until renovations are completed.  What has become increasingly frustrating for students who have paid for a parking spot is the continued use of WHS parking lots by those without a proper tag.
Because of this, WHS will begin enforcing a $10 fee (each time) to those without parking passes parked on campus OR found parking in spots not registered to them. This will begin on Monday, February 10th.
Anyone parking at WHS without the proper tag will be asked to move their vehicle off campus and have the fee added to their fees owed account (must be paid before participating in school sponsored events).

What if someone is parked in my spot?
*Take a photo of the license plate and report it to the administrative office immediately.  Let the office know where you have parked so you are not cited.  If the car has a WHS tag, let us know what number it is.

Can I obtain a parking pass during this school year?
*Unfortunately, there are no more spots available for the 2019-20 school year.  

Where do I park if I am unable to obtain a parking tag this year?
*You will need to park on a public street, not including Main Street in front of WHS.

What about next year?
*Look for summer communications from WHS regarding parking passes.  As happened this year, Seniors will be given specified times to purchase passes before underclassmen may begin purchasing them. 

Who do I speak with if I have a specific question?
*Please see Mr. Stamm in the administrative office.

Attendance Banner

Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.
