Parking Permit Applications for 2017-2018: Parking Permit applications are now available. Juniors may bring in or mail their completed applications to the school over the summer. Students should read the Parking Rules and Regulations and complete the Parking Permit Application. Seniors get first preference for parking, but 50 spots will be reserved for juniors. Please note that copies of the student's driver's license, car registration, and insurance binder, along with the permit fee check of $150, must accompany the application. All seniors in good standing who turn in a valid application will receive a parking permit.

Classroom Learning Assistants: The CLA program places Upper School students in Lower School classrooms to assist teachers and students. An overview of the program is available in E113 and the Main Office. Students seeking more information should contact Ms. Bosco in E113. Click here for the Classroom Learning Assistant Application. CLAs from last year do not have to apply again. All accepted students will go through a brief training session with Ms. Bosco.
Important information for returning students:
Class Dues: Class dues for WRHS students is $100 over four years. Students may pay the $100 as a lump sum, or may pay $25 yearly. Class dues is used to help defray the costs of class trips, proms, and other class events. Checks should be made payable to WRSD and payments can be dropped off to Karen Lapierre in B201. For information on class dues or to find out how much dues your child owes, contact the advisor in charge, Ms. Linda Sasso at email@example.com
Daily Parking Passes: A limited number of parking spaces will be available at a cost of $2 per day. Juniors and seniors without a parking permit may buy a day pass, with a maximum of five passes purchased per quarter. Passes will be available in the main office, and students should purchase the pass 24 hours in advance, as parking spaces cannot be guaranteed on the day of the request. Plan ahead if you need to bring a car to school.
Bringing a Guest to a WRHS Event: If a WRHS student wants to bring a guest to a WRHS dance or other school function, the guest must fill out a WRHS Dance Permission Form. The completed form must be turned in when the WRHS student is buying tickets for the event.
Getting a Driver's License: Are you 16 years old and ready to get your driver's license? Check out the WRHS Driver Ed. program. The classes are held after school at the high school. It couldn't be more convenient.
Clubs and Activities: WRHS offers many extracurricular activities for students. Students can find a full listing of clubs, musical groups, and athletic teams on the Clubs and Activities page of the website. If a student wishes to form a new club, the student must download the Application to Form a Club, fill it out and bring it to the main office.
SAT Registration/Administration: Students must register for the SAT online. There is no more standby testing. Students with questions should contact their guidance counselor. For information on SATs and to register, please visit the College Board website.
Please review these rules for taking the SAT:
- All testers must have an acceptable ID (Driver's license, passport, school ID, state ID) with a passport-quality headshot that must resemble their present appearance. Even with a picture on a registration ticket and even if we know the students personally, we cannot admit them without an acceptable ID.
- All testers must have their SAT registration ticket with them at all times during test day. Without a ticket, we cannot admit them even if they are on the roster and even if we know them.
- No more test center or test changes. For example, if someone changes her mind on test day to take a subject test instead of the regular test, we cannot permit the change. The same goes for center changes. A student registered at Burncoat, for example, cannot come to Wachusett.
- The only test changes possible are non-standard to standard (and vice versa). Those with accommodations can only waive their rights with written permission from a parent or legal guardian. Otherwise they must report to the extended-time proctor. Those registered for the regular SAT or Subject Test, who come with SSD approval letters for extended time (or other accommodations), can switch to the non-standard administration (i.e., they can go to the extended time room).
- All testers must have a picture on their registration. Exception: 7th/8th-grade talent search students.
Dismissals: Students to be dismissed must bring a note, signed by a parent/guardian, to the Upper School office before 8 a.m. on the day they are to be dismissed. No phone dismissals are allowed. Students may not be dismissed during long block except for a documented medical or legal appointment. The class administrator must approve all long-block dismissals.
