These bricks will begin at the entrance to the field and continue over time to fill the walkway around the stadium. We greatly appreciate your support and help to show how BLACK HAWKS DOMINATE!
New Construction and Pedestrian Access to WFHS
We are excited that a new wing will be ready when school opens in August 2017 adding 16 new classrooms at the southeast corner of the campus. This will permanently change pedestrian access to our campus beginning with second semester. Construction fencing will soon go up requiring the following changes:
* The pedestrian gate facing east next to the driveway will be permanently closed. We also consider this a plus for security reasons.
* The south-facing doors of the main building will be fenced off and not accessible for entry. They will still be used as emergency exits during construction.
* The door facing "The Nest" just south of the administration offices will be unlocked and available for student entry from inside the campus.
* Students who are released for Seminary will now exit through the library and reenter through the same door. This door will be closely monitored.
If you have any questions about the changes please do not hesitate to contact the WFHS administration.
Williams Field’s Class of 2017 graduation will take place 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at ASU’s Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe. No tickets required to attend. Further information will be available in the spring.
Please keep the following Attendance policies in mind:
If a student leaves campus without being signed out at the front office they will remain unexcused even if a parent calls the office.
Late students will only be excused if documentation is provided. A tardy will remain unexcused even if a parent signs the student in. Any tardies resulting in After School Detention assignment (ASD) will be handled by the front desk staff rather than the attendance office.
Any calls made to the auto dialer take 24 hours to process. Please be patient.
