Thanksgiving Break starts Wednesday! There is NO SCHOOL for all WUSD students November 23-25 of this week. 🗓️ We hope our students, staff, and families enjoy the holiday. Classes will resume Monday, November 28.
In honor of National Apprenticeship Week, which was last week November 14th-20th, Whitewater High School wishes to congratulate all of our students who have taken steps into their future by participating in Youth Apprenticeships. Youth Apprenticeship (YA) integrates school-based and work-based learning to instruct students in employability and occupational skills defined by Wisconsin industries. WHS has more than doubled participation in YA over the last few school years and we hope to continue growing opportunities for WHS students. Students wishing to learn more about YA should contact Mr. Baron West.
Preliminary election results indicate that voters have approved the operational referendum question for the Whitewater Unified School District. As a result, we will be able to maintain: robust academic and athletic opportunities, student support and mental health services, comprehensive instructional and co-curricular programs, and technology and facilities infrastructure. We are incredibly appreciative of the input and feedback we received throughout this process. Thanks to your engagement, we were able to present a solution that made sense for our entire community. The canvass will be held on Friday, November 11, to certify the results. As always, thank you for your support of WUSD schools and the students we serve!

Today, November 8th, the Whitewater community will vote on renewing the operational referendum for the Whitewater Unified School District. The referendum asks voters to continue the funding they previously approved in 2018. There would be no tax increase associated with the referendum. In fact, taxpayers are likely to realize a reduction on their property tax bills, even if the referendum is approved.
