Parent Resources

Our goal is to provide you answers and resources to help make your experience at WWHS a positive one. If you ever have any questions about the services your child receives or the programs we offer, please give us a call. We are always happy to help you.

Health Services

Both the physical and mental health of our students is important. Our health services staff looks after each student’s wellbeing while on our campus. To learn more, please visit our district Health Services page.

COVID Precautions

During this challenging and uncertain time, we are thinking of you and your children. We know it can be hard to know where to find accurate information, so we’ve provided links on this page to help. At WWHS, we follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Nevada Health Response. If you or a member of your family contracts COVID-like symptoms, please report them to our school nurse, Maria Luna, or the Elko County COVID-19 Hotline at (775) 777-2507.

Medication Administration

Certain health problems require that students take medication during school hours. Medication must be kept in the health office at all times, and must be in its original, properly labeled container. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label, as this serves as the doctor’s order. A signed consent form giving specific directions for use must accompany medication from home. 

Students with Severe Allergies

With parent permission, students with severe allergies may carry and self-administer an inhaler or EpiPen that has the proper labeling. Please check with the school office to obtain and sign the "Permission to Carry" form. We encourage students to report to an adult or to the office after using the EpiPen.

Special Education Services

We know how challenging it can be to find resources to help your child with special needs succeed in school. We also know that there are so many rights, rules, regulations, forms, and jargon, it can be intimidating for parents and difficult to understand everything that is going on. We want to help. The Elko County School District website is full of information about the SPED resources available at our school. We also conduct yearly parent meetings to help you understand the services your child will receive at WWHS. Keep an eye on our Calendar page for details.

Adult Education

Need to earn your high school diploma? Class is now in session and available remotely or on the WWHS campus. 

Our on-staff, adult education teacher will help guide you through the process using technology or the “old fashioned” way with books, paper, and pen. The choice is yours. Please contact Dean Stevens with questions by email or by calling (775) 664-3940 ext.3451, and join us Monday through Friday from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the trailer behind the bus lane.
