A Welcome Message from Mr. Kane
A Message to Students, Parents, and Guardians from Mr. Kane
I hope you are having an enjoyable summer break and enjoying some time with family and friends. The COVID‑19 pandemic has provided many challenges in our daily lives and certainly within our school district. I appreciate all of our students' and families' support during that time. We have faced many difficulties but continue to prioritize student safety and education and we are looking forward to a great 2021-2022 school year.
I encourage all students to participate in clubs, band, theater, student council, or school sponsored sports during the school year. We offer a wide variety of activities and hope that each and every student can find something they enjoy. Within the first few weeks of school, we will have a co-curricular and extra-curricular fair so that students can learn about all the different options available to them.
Our Academies at WAHS are up and running and are designed to provide learning opportunities for all students in an area of interest. During your freshmen year, all students will experience Freshmen Seminar and decide on which Academy best fits with their college or career interests. All of our Academies, as well as Pathway Programs can be found in our course selection guide.
On September 3, 2021, WAHS will host 9th grade and New Student Orientation beginning at 11:00 am and concluding at 2:00 pm. Students will have a guided tour of the building. Student Ambassadors, student council members, administrators and counselors will be available to answer any questions you may have. All students that will be entering the high school for the first time are invited to attend, including those that learned remotely last year and are not familiar with the high school. All students should enter the building through Door 25 located on the stadium side of the building.
We will not be utilizing school lockers again this year. An updated bell schedule can be found below. I look forward to seeing everyone soon. I am always available to answer any questions you may have. Please call the school or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to share information with you about a new program at the
Children's Service Center.
The HOPE program is designed to provide support and assistance to students and young adults who are
experiencing symptoms of psychosis for the first time.
Please see this brochure for more information.
Students and families can also reach out to our administration or counselors for assistance with any
mental health questions or concerns.
Virtual Math and Science Labs Available
There will be a Virtual Math Lab and Virtual Science Lab available for all remote students to access.

All 12th grade students are required to have a second MCV vaccine (for prevention of Meningitis) on record with the High School. If you have been contacted by the school that means we do not have the information required. Please review this letter and return it to the school nurse as soon as possible.
Due to COVID-19, there will be protocols to follow:
A Drivers Education instructor will contact you about current status and rules that must be abided by
Students should report to the High School, specific location will be given by instructor on day to report

I proudly announce our "Kids Food Pantry" here in our high school.
Kids Pantry began last November with the idea that we could make the holidays a little special for our students in need. We are still going strong thanks to the extraordinary generosity of private individuals, our amazing staff and teachers, students, our community churches and businesses.
Your donations are always welcome to keep this much needed pantry going.
The Wallenpaupack Area School District has revised the dress code for the High School and Middle School. Students and parents should become familiar with the guidelines before shopping for school clothes. The guidelines can be found here.
