Students and parents, beginning the 2018-19 school year, Winder Barrow High School will implement the following procedures:
- No headphones or ear buds will be worn inside our building at any time.
- All head coverings are safety issues and will not be allowed to be worn.
- All cell phones will be placed away in a secure location during class time and only out for instructional purposes at teacher discretion.
Parents, please discuss these new procedures with your students. We are looking forward to a wonderful 2018-19 school year!
In order for your child to be checked out of school, the guardian checking him/her out must be listed in Infinite Campus and must have proper photo identification. All check- outs must happen prior to 2:00. No one will be allowed to be checked out after this time
So who can get vaccinated? Everyone except those under the age of 6 months. What do they need to bring? Insurance card if they are covered through insurance. Families with no insurance or an insurance we do not accept will get the vaccine free. We will be at Winder Barrow High School Nov. 6 from 8 am to 7 pm. See their Facebook page for more information.
Beginning on Monday, October 29th, WBHS will be administering the Georgia Student Health Survey via first block classes. Student responses are kept anonymous at all times. Participation in this survey provides helpful information while also serving to improve the WBHS School Climate Rating. Please see the links on our social media sites or on the WBHS Web page for a parental opt-out form if you DO NOT want your student to participate. This form will need to be turned in to your student’s first block teacher.
We also encourage parents/guardians to take the parent survey located at http://gshs.gadoe.org/parents, as we seek information from all stakeholders in regards to our school climate.”
