Dear AP Students/Parents: Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Wauconda High School encourages all students to take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. For the 2018 AP exams, students at Wauconda High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. This year each AP exam costs $98.00. Wauconda High School firmly believes that every student should be able to take AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Mrs. Laura Halverson, [email protected], in the WHS Main Office to learn more. Online Exam registration will begin on Thu., Feb. 1, 2018 at 12:01 AM and end on Wed., Feb. 28, 2018 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/144310 to register .To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. Wauconda High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees ONLINE at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment. Here are the important dates for the registration process: 

Wed., Feb. 21, 2018 at 11:59 PM - Registrations and payments after this date will incur a $10 late fee per exam. Wed., Feb. 28, 2018 at 11:59 PM - Registration Ends

 Mon., Mar. 5, 2018 at 11:59 PM - Registrations that have not been fully paid will be cancelled and exams will not be ordered.

If you would like to register for an exam not listed, contact Mrs. Halverson by email [email protected] or see her in the main office, .

Bubbling will be pre-printed again this year. If this is not possible, pre-administration sessions will be held the third week of April during 8th period.

Also, 19 dinners were delivered to families of D118 who are not able to attend. And of course our regular customer, 102 year old Faye Nelson, was present and wearing her green.

Emergency Early Dismissal Procedures Due to Severe Winter Weather Dear Parents: In the event of severe winter weather occurring during the school day, it may be necessary to dismiss the students housed at Wauconda Middle School, Matthews Middle School and Wauconda High School earlier than usual. The reason this action would be taken is to allow the buses an opportunity to drop off these older students in order to return in time to take the younger elementary students at Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown School and Cotton Creek School home according to their regular dismissal schedule. If this early dismissal was not done, we would run the risk of buses being unable to return the Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown and Cotton Creek students to their homes, or very late drop off for these same students. In addition, we hope to avoid buses driving in a snowstorm when it is dark. Parents of students in grades six through twelve need to be aware of the possibility that this situation could occur due to inclement winter weather. If it does, we would enact the Bright Arrow Emergency Alert Service in an attempt to notify you that your sixth through twelfth grade student was coming home early. As a result, we ask that you make appropriate arrangements with your sixth through twelfth grade student in order for them to gain access to shelter after being dismissed early due to weather conditions. This type of situation does not occur often, but if it does we wanted you to be informed of our actions so that you and your students can be prepared. Thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely, Dr. Daniel J. Coles Superintendent of Schools

Procedimientos de Emergencia de Despido Temprano Debido a Severo Clima de Invierno Estimados Padres:

En la eventualidad de un clima severo de invierno durante el día escolar, puede ser necesario despedir a los estudiantes atendiendo en la escuelas Wauconda Middle School, Matthews Middle School y Wauconda High School más temprano de lo usual. La razón para que esta acción sea tomada es el permitir a los autobuses la oportunidad de llevar a estos estudiantes mayores a tiempo para volver y llevar a la casa a los estudiantes más jóvenes que están en las escuelas primarias Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown y Cotton Creek según su horario de despido regular. Si este despido temprano no se hiciera, estaríamos corriendo el riesgo de que los autobuses no puedan regresar a sus casas a los estudiantes de Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown y Cotton Creek, o que estos estudiantes lleguen sumamente tarde. Además, queremos evitar que haya autobuses manejando en una tormenta de nieve cuando ya ha oscurecido. Los padres de los estudiantes de sexto al doceavo grado tienen que estar al tanto de la posibilidad de que esta situación pueda ocurrir debido a las condiciones del clima de invierno. Si ocurre, nosotros haríamos uso del Servicio de Alerta de Emergencia Bright Arrow para intentar notificarles que su estudiante de sexto al doceavo grado va a llegar temprano a la casa. Como resultado, les solicito que hagan los arreglos apropiados con su estudiante de sexto al doceavo grado de manera que estos tengan acceso a un lugar de resguardo donde estar después que hayan sido despedidos temprano debido a las condiciones del clima. Este tipo de situación no ocurre muy seguido, pero si ocurre, nosotros queremos que ustedes estén informados de nuestras acciones de modo que ustedes y sus estudiantes estén preparados. Gracias por su cooperación. Sinceramente, Dr Daniel J Coles Superintendente de Escuelas
