Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year. As you begin this new school year, it should be with anticipation of all the new experiences that will be yours. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we encourage each of you to join us with enthusiasm for learning and a strong sense of “Wishkah Pride” in Wishkah Valley High School. As with any guide, this handbook serves only as a framework around which you should plan your activities. It is not feasible to cover
every situation in great detail; however, this handbook provides a solid framework of our policies and procedures. In the absence of specific instructions, you should comply with the spirit of good citizenship, and when in doubt, talk it over with your teacher or principal.
The policies and procedures contained in this handbook are the results of a concerted effort on the part of the faculty, staff, and administration. This information has been carefully prepared and presented so that it will be of value in helping you to become an integral part of our school. The ultimate purpose of education is to help each student become an effective citizen in our democracy.
Developing and accepting the responsibilities and obligations of citizenship will help us to participate in the world of tomorrow. We hope you will participate in our varied activities and find those things within our school that will prepare you to live a successful life and take your place in this complex society.
