Welcome from Principal, Mark Gorman

    Message from the Principal

    On behalf of the faculty and staff and Wickenburg High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  Wickenburg High School is truly a great school and as principal, it is a privilege to be part of a school with such rich traditions and history! 

    Welcome Back!

    Wickenburg High School Families,

    Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  I certainly hope you have enjoyed your summer though it has certainly looked and felt much different than those in the past!  The educational landscape has changed greatly over the last 6 months, taking us all down unfamiliar roads and exploring uncharted waters! 

    As both a district and high school, we have been busy developing plans to create safe opportunities for students to learn during these difficult times!  With that, the start of school is quickly approaching and I know that many of our students are looking forward to the opportunity to return to the classroom, sit in desks, engage with teachers and friends, and bring a sense of normalcy to their lives.  As of my writing this letter, we are not at a point where we can do that as a school, district, or state.  As a result, we will be starting “remote learning” on August 3rd, beginning unlike we have at any point in recent history.  We will engage students in Remote Learning until it is determined that students can return to the classroom. To find detailed information about the WUSD Remote Learning Plan visit the WUSD web site.

    What will remote learning look like at Wickenburg High School?  Remote learning will allow students to learn when physically separated from the teacher.  So you may be thinking, WVA provides that with online learning, how will that be different?  Remote and online learning both do remove the need to have a physical classroom, however remote learning has increased accountability, requiring students to meet at scheduled times.  Remote learning also will not only include learning through the use of technology.  Remote learning will  also provide students with learning opportunities that can take them away from their electronics and engage them in activities that include practice, physical exercise, portfolio development, group work, and projects.

    At WHS, the first day of school for students is Monday, August 3rd with students attending classes remotely.  Our schedule will run similar to that we will be utilizing upon return to in-person learning.  Students will have the opportunity to receive teacher instruction, engage with other students, ask and respond to questions, get small group support, and work independently.   Learning will be occurring, grading will take place, and attendance will be taken during remote learning, so it is important for students to attend their remote classes each day. 

    To meet the technology needs for remote learning, WHS will be distributing Chromebooks on the afternoon of July 29th from 1:30-3:30 for those that will need a device.  If you need a device to utilize for remote learning until we return to in-person classes, please fill out a request form at www.wickenburgschools.org/device .   If you are unable to either request a device online or make the designated time, please contact WHS at 928-684-6600.

    Each student enrolled at Wickenburg High School has a district email to use for this.  All students that are new to WUSD can access their email by doing the following:

    Go to the Google email login page

    • Type in your username which is the first initial of your first name and your last name followed by -stu@wusd9.org.
      • Example- Jane Doe= jdoe-stu@wusd9.org
    • Your password to your email is your DOB (date of birth) with no dashes/slashes.
      • August 15, 2004 = 08152004
    • Teachers will be providing you with links to their Google Classrooms via email, so having access ahead of time will be important.

    Breakfast and lunch will be available for drive-thru curbside pick-up for WHS students beginning Monday, August 3rd.  Please refer to the enclosed document for information regarding meals and distribution sites.  Families receiving Free and Reduced priced meals will have 30 days to resubmit applications for the 2020-21 school year. https://family.titank12.com/

    In addition to remote learning, we will be holding our “Back to School” event remotely.  We are planning for this and will have information regarding this event coming out very soon!

    As the reopening of school quickly approaches, I want to urge students and parents to visit both our district and school websites, as well as check your personal and school email for important information regarding the start of remote learning on August 3rd!  In addition, there will be a board meeting on August 6, 2020 to discuss students returning to the classroom and school reopening plans. School reopening plans will follow the District Reopening Guidelines. These guidelines can be found on our district website at the following link:  https://www.wickenburgschools.org/domain/2272 .

    Finally, for updated information regarding WHS Athletics, monitor the WHS webpage and/or contact the athletic office at 928-684-6617.

    We look forward to a different, yet amazing school year!
