Dress Code Reminder

Texas Weather is upon us. With the changing temperatures, administration is seeing a shift in student attire. Please remember that all students must adhere to the dress code's guidelines. The attached addresses the kinds of clothing allowed and not allowed at school. 

It is an inconvenience for not only the teachers, but also the parents, when students must contact home to ask for a change of clothing to be brought to school. This takes away from important instruction time at school. 

Socioeconomic Information Needed

Parents, if you did not indicate your socioeconomic information during the registration process, please do so at this time. 

Texas Education Agency School Districts requires each school to collect and report the socioeconomic status of each student for the annual state accountability ratings and for federal reporting. Please note that your family's income levels are not reported to the Texas Education Agency; only the Economic Disadvantaged status of each student as determined by the information provided is reported.

Completing this form will assist with the school's funding (Title I and State Compensatory). It is imperative that we continue to collect this data to keep compensatory funding in place.

Our goal at Woodrow Wilson High School is 100% completion by October 21, 2022.

Forms:  English and En Español

Spirit Shop Volunteers Needed

The Spirit Shop is open outside the Big Gym from 7:30 to 9:05 a.m. every Thursday morning. There is a staff member posted at the glass doors by the Big Gym to let people in who want to shop or pick up orders.
