Information from the WHS Student Activities Office (As of May 7, 2020): We understand there is much anticipation about end of the year and what has been planned for seniors. Please know that we have been working very hard on behalf of the Class of 2020 to make this year memorable, despite the circumstances. For some of the activities/events that we’ve planned, we need your help in making them even better and more personal for every senior and their family!  Since instruction has gone virtual, so has our ASB office! We have set up an all senior google classroom to get information to all of you regarding year end, as well as collecting photos to be used in our virtual Baccalaureate and Graduation productions. If you need the link and passcode to the Senior Google Classroom please email our Activities Director, Sue Eriksen at eriksen.susan@tusd.org We want EVERYONE represented, so we will need photos from you.

Make sure you refer to the Cap and Gown section on this page as well.
