School Closure

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and Superintendent Dr. Eric Mackey have announced that schools will not resume for the 2019-2020 school year. More details will be released as soon as possible. Thank you all for your understanding during this difficult time.

 

In addition, all school-related activities, events, and sports have been canceled. 

The 2020 WHS Prom scheduled for Friday, April 17th has been canceled. We are hopeful, however, to reschedule Prom for a date later than June 5, 2020. The Alabama State Department of Education will not allow any school functions until this date at the earliest. Mrs. Hughes and the Prom Committee are doing everything in their power to salvage this year's Prom, and more information will be given out as soon as possible! 

We encourage all students, parents and stakeholders to remain engaged with their education. Online resources and learning opportunities still exist - even outside of the classroom! Completion of school work that might have been sent home with your student is not required, but we should all be continuous learners. Take this time away from the classroom as an opportunity to  learn new skills and explore your interests. During this time of school closures across the nation, many companies have made their paid online content available to students and parents! A list of this free content is available for you HERE →. Please click this link for a list of websites that offer virtual tours, and help with reading, science & math content!

 

We encourage all students, parents and stakeholders to take proper precaution to protect themselves and others from the spread of Coronavirus and adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH).  

 

Lastly, we encourage all students, parents and stakeholders to pay close attention to the Wicksburg High School website, Facebook page and local news outlets to remain informed on the latest developments during this time of school closure.

 

We sincerely appreciate your continued support of Wicksburg High School, and we look forward to a safe and speedy return of our students and faculty!
