From the Office:
You need your ID or ASB with you EVERYDAY for business in the library, attendance office and main office! Carry your ID with you and download the Skyward App for a digital version!
YES, you can still purchase your ASB in the office or online! We will upgrade your card any time!
How do you buy an ASB? ($20 this year)
Bring cash or check to the HS office before school, at lunch or after school. We don't take money during class time.
OR buy one on the online store! This is how you can pay with a debit or credit card. For detailed instructions to use the store (logging in is a little weird) see the link above!
YOU NEED YOUR SCHOOL ID or ASB EVERY DAY! If you don't have one and need it - $5 to replace it.
Carry the Card in your wallet or phone case.
Get the Skyward App so you can use the photo ID in the app (see How To Do HS Things for help.)
Take a picture of your card that you can easily find and use.
For some events the ACTUAL CARD is required, so best practice is to have it with you at all times.
If the office lets you go to get something from your car - DON'T ABUSE THAT PRIVILEDGE. Get back in less than 10 minutes and don't make it a habit. Thank You!
REMINDER: WVHS is a closed campus (see handbook). Students are not allowed to check-out for lunch. We do not allow food delivery services on campus during the school day.
