Under guidance from the Mississippi Department of Health, Wayne County Schools will require universal masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors ages 6 and up while on school campus and on buses regardless of vaccination status until further notice.
We will revisit this policy monthly. Thank you for your cooperation in helping keep the Wayne County School District family safe during these difficult times.
Welcome to Wayne County High School and the 2021-2022 school year. Even though we are in the midst of a pandemic, we are planning on this being our greatest year ever. At Wayne County High School, we are striving to build a community of lifelong learners who never stop growing and continually seek inspiration and knowledge.
One important step for our students’ success is attending school every day. A student’s presence at school is extremely important for their academic progress. By attending school and doing what is asked each and every day. Studies show that 2 absences a month can put a student as much as 1 full academic year behind their peers.
A child’s most influential teacher is his or her parent. This makes parental involvement a foundational premise for our school’s success. If we all work together, then the sky's the limit to what we can achieve.
Students who are well rounded and involved in their school have a higher rate of success. We want to encourage our students to be involved in extracurricular activities. One of our main goals at Wayne County High School is to instill in our students the importance of being productive citizens who give back and support our community. This can be achieved through participation in athletics, arts, academics, various clubs, and community service projects. Please consider purchasing season tickets and attending sporting and activity events to help promote Wayne County High School.
We know the 2021-2022 school year is going to be the best ever and look forward to each and every day. If I can be of service to you and your family, please contact me.
As always, it’s a great day to be a War Eagle.
