At Wilson one of our top priorities is student achievement and overall well-being.

The menu along the side will provide an array of information for students, including: 40 hours of community service for high school graduation, extra-curricular teams and clubs, bus information and cancellations, crisis and help support information, homework help, mental health and more.
We also value student input, and invite students to provide suggestions on links they would like to see on this section. Check in with Ms. Roberts in Guidance to suggest ideas.

Important School Information

TRANSPORTATION: When busses are cancelled and schools remain open. 

If your are bussed:

  • If your parents are unable to make alternate arrangements for you to attend school, a parent/guardian is required to inform the school via Safe Arrival phone line, app or website prior 9:00 AM on the day of school. 
  • Your absence will be entered as a "Grant Day" that will not affect perfect attendance. 
  • NOTE: If parents/guardians do not excuse your absence, the system will generate calls home asking to verify your absence.

If you are not bussed:

  • If your parents choose to keep you at home due to weather conditions, they are still required to call the Safe Arrival line prior to 9:00 AM and enter the code that is appropriate for the absence ie "Illness" or "Appointment".  The "Bus Cancellation" code should only be used on days when busses have been cancelled in your school zone and your parents/guardians would prefer to keep you at home due to weather conditions.


Parents will receive automatic notifications if your absence is not recorded in the system prior to 9:00 AM.


If a parent/guardian signs out their child, the student must leave school property.  Students cannot remain on school property (our field included) to watch sporting events, work in the cafeteria, school library etc.


When provided with a note, ensure the note is filled out with the full student name, date, reason and signature with contact method. Clear communication to office staff will help avoid any calls home to verify. 

It is the student's responsibility to have their trip waiver, forms, and money in on time for the events. ​Students​ cannot be excused by a parent, the day of, for a trip or event when the student has not submitted the requirements on time. If a student misses a trip, no refunds will be provided. 

You may pay for a trip with School Cash Online. Students may pay for a trip using exact cash only in the main office.
