WVHS Return to School Information

Welcome back WVHS Students and Parents! Please look over the items below that provide you with a bit of information for the upcoming school year. This page only scratches the surface when it comes to the wealth of information we provide you throughout the year. Our primary way of communication will be through email, so please make sure your email and contact information is updated in your Skyward account. We recommend checking the front page of our website (wvhs.wvsd.org) as we post new information often. If you have questions or need assistance please contact our main office at 509-922-5488.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

WVHS does not have a specific school supply list for students. We recommend getting general supplies for your student to manage their 6 different classes. (Pens, pencils, paper, notebook, folders etc.) If your student needs any specific supplies for a class, that will be communicated the first week of school by the teacher in the class syllabus.

PICTURE DAY
School picture day is Friday September 16th and retake day is Friday October 21st. Stay tuned for more information about ordering. 
BUSING
Registering riders will ensure that there is adequate space on the school bus to accommodate all students who choose to ride, as well as achieve a new and improved level of safety and communication for WVSD riders and their families.

After bus routes are finalized this summer, the Transportation Department will contact you directly to confirm your student's transportation details through email and/or by phone. Contact the WVSD Transportation Department at (509) 922-5467, option 1 or email [email protected] with any questions.
 

SKYWARD FAMILY ACCESS

Please familiarize yourself with Skyward Family Access. Every parent has a unique log in (separate from their student) that allows them to check grades, contact teachers, receive important announcements/dates and update any information under your student’s profile. This same login also allows you to make any kind of payment and register for sports, activities and events through the “make a payment” portal. Skyward and email is the main avenue the school will use to get masses of information to you as parents. If you need help with your log in please contact our main office at 509-922-5488 option 5.

ELECTRONIC ANNUAL FORMS

Using the instructions below, we ask that you electronically update, verify, sign and fill out a few District required forms. Parent/guardians are to complete the “Current Student Information Update” for each of their students. This process should only take you a few minutes to complete. Please see the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your Skyward Family Access
  2. Click on the Online Registration tab on the left
  3. A list of steps will show up on the right side of your screen.
  4. Each form will have a few required fields for updates, information and electronic signatures.
  5. Remember to click the “complete step” box at the bottom of the page after EACH STEP
  6. Click the submit box at the end

We ask you have this completed by September 30th.
