Homecoming Schedule For Sep. 28-Oct. 2

As always our main goal this year is to do as much as possible while keeping the safety of our students as the number one priority. That being said, our fall homecoming week will look a little different this year.

Unfortunately, due to health guidelines we will not be able to have the traditional homecoming parade/pep rally on Thursday night, or the traditional WHS homecoming dance after the football game. However, we are still planning some fun activities for our students. Here is a list of activities that we will be having for the week:
