The six week grading period has come and gone…now it’s time to take action or celebrate! There are several great supports available to help our students struggling with academics:
- After School Tutoring- 3:15-4:15 in the media center. We have two support personnel, including a tutor who specializes in helping students with math available during this time. Students can just drop in and get help!
- Parent- teacher conferences are November 10 and 12. Please come and meet with a teacher to understand how your student is doing in their classes and how you can support them at home. Conference sign ups will be coming in the mail (along with report cards) this weekend or early next week.
- Pupil Assistance Time (PAT). There are teachers available in all subjects to help students nearly every period of the day. Students can reference their syllabus or ask their teacher who has PAT during your student’s study hall or off-campus.
- Counselors. Our counselors are available to support students and create plans for credit recovery to reach graduation goals.
There is plenty of time to make up poor grades and turn this semester around. It is important to take action now and seek help.

Willamette High School staff have been trained to follow the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) protocol in order to ensure the safety of all students and staff in the time of a potential threat.
The philosophy of ALICE is to use communication so that all staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis. This fall we will be providing training to students so they can understand this shift in protocol and understand the various actions we may need to take to avoid danger.
Staff, students and parents have reported appreciating the increased communication from the school during an event, such as Thursday’s lockdown. This shift however, requires that we have the opportunity to focus on working with law enforcement to alleviate any potential threat.
Parents, please do not call the school during a lockdown. Each call we have to answer directly interferes with our ability to handle the situation. Instead, watch for information on the school’s website. It will be factual and up to date.
Please do not post on social media. Posting inaccurate or partial information on social media only serves to raise anxiety, frighten family members, and create a sense of panic that is not helpful to our Willamette community.
In the event of a lockdown, here are the communication steps that we follow:
- Students and staff are alerted with bells and an intercom message
- Once they are in secured rooms, staff and students receive as much information as possible
- Staff are sent a message for students to text or email to their parents
- Information is posted on the Willamette home page
- Communication is repeated with updated information until the lockdown has ended
Thank you for your support in this process. Please be assured that student safety is always a paramount concern.
