Good Day Purgolder Families!
This school year has been a unique experience for not only our scholars but all of us as well. As the 2019-20 school year draws to an end I wanted to communicate some year-end information. Please note that we have tried to utilize our school website to update students and families. Also, note that we are all working remotely from home and respond to emails quickly. If you need to get a hold of a staff member you can find their emails on the school website, email the school firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com .
The class of 2020 had their senior year end abruptly. They weren’t able to have a prom, senior cookout, or traditional graduation. We will continue to look at how we can incorporate their memories into things as we move forward. The great news is that we can all watch the WHSoIT virtual graduation on June 5 at 1:00 pm. The YouTube link will be on our school website when it becomes available.
To all other scholars, we are continuing to program you for classes for the 2020-21 school year. We are looking for current juniors to plan 2021 senior events. If you are interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get information on how to join the senior planning committee.
The semester ends May 21. Teachers need all schoolwork completed a day or two before so grades can be finalized. We will mail report cards to your home on around June 8, 2020. It is very important that the school has your current address, phone number, and email. If you need us to update your student’s information email us at email@example.com. Someone from our office will contact you to help get your child’s emergency contact information updated.
As of the day I am writing this letter, we do not have a date for cleaning out lockers. We are waiting for our district office to communicate those dates. We will send out that information by phone calls, emails, and adding a notice to our school website.
Upcoming important dates:
- May 21 Semester ends
- May 29 Makeup Cap and Gown distribution
- June 5 Virtual Graduation
- June 8 Mailing of Student Report cards
- June 15 Mailing of Diplomas
- August 17, 2020 is the first student day for the 2020-21 school year.
*All dates and activities are subject to change due to statewide and/or local health orders.
We want to continue working with your scholar for the 2020-2021 school year and want to see all of you in the 2020-2021 school year. Please remember to check our school website www5.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/school/whsoit and/or our twitter account Washington HS of IT @WashingtonITMPS for updated information.
