Willamette is excited to welcome the graduating class of 2022!

Please mark these important dates to your calendars.

February 22nd and 23rd –>Middle school teachers will accompany current 8th grade classes to WHS for a welcoming orientation. During this orientation students will get to meet some of the Wolverine staff, learn how to request specific classes for their freshman year and receive a campus tour led by WHS Leadership students.

February 27th –> An evening orientation for all incoming 9th grade students and their families.  This orientation is important for our families to attend as this is when you will begin the process of selecting your classes for the 2018-19 school year. Families will attend one session at either 5:30 pm or 7:00 pm in Powers Auditorium. Both orientation sessions will be the same. Please attend the session that best fits your schedule.

School Safety Update

In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Florida, we would like to assure you that the safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.

All of our staff at Willamette have been trained in how to respond in the event of an Active Shooter on campus. In the past five years, we have had several safety drills in our school, and we were already planning another safety training with students and staff to occur in the coming weeks.

The importance that we all play in keeping our school safe cannot be underestimated. If you see or hear something- online or otherwise – please say something to a trusted adult at school. It is our responsibility as members of our community to report concerns that we may become aware of.

Together we can work to keep our school community safe.

WHS counselors and administrators are available to meet with students or staff now, or in the coming days as needed for support.

We are a strong community and a proud Wolverine Nation.
