Dear Students & Guardians:

As WHS continues to explore opportunities to support our 2018-2019 Challenge Success Theme of Achieving Balance, we remain focused on finding opportunities to give students and staff time to be able to work together.   With this goal in mind, we have reformatted the MCAS testing days this spring into Intervention Days with a delayed start to our traditional schedule. 

Additionally, since this is the first time we will be doing the computer based MCAS testing, the Intervention model will allow us to better preserve an ideal testing environment.

The following communication will provide you with both logistical details as well as the schedule for each Intervention/MCAS Day. 

Logistical Details:

  • Blocks 1, 2, & 3 on MCAS days are designated as intervention time for students not taking MCAS.  Our regularly scheduled classes will not be held during blocks 1, 2, and 3 on MCAS days (with the exception of AP courses).
  • Students not participating in MCAS testing are not required to attend school for blocks 1-3 however, we encourage them to work with their teachers by choice (if necessary) or they may be directly instructed to meet with their teacher in an attempt to solidify their learning or make-up missing assignments.
  • MCAS testing will be scheduled for all Sophomores from 8:00 to 10:45 for ELA .
  • The traditional block schedule will begin at 10:55 (block 4) through the remainder of the day.  All students are expected to be in class at this time. 
  • Bus Transportation – No Change in Bus Schedule
    Buses run on a normal 7:30 a.m. & 8:30 a.m. pick up schedule.

Below is the schedule for the March English and Language Arts MCAS for March 26 and 27, we will be sending our more schedules for the May Mathematics and June Science MCAS as we get closer to those times.

​​​​​​​Thank you.
