  • REMOTE LEARNING:  12/1/2020 - 12/11/2020

    Effective November 30, 2020, Wilson Central High School will transition to REMOTE LEARNING from 12/1/2020 - 12/11/2020 with the intention for students to return in-person Hybrid the week of 12/14/2020. The reason for this change in learning is due to an increasing number of students and staff affected by COVID-19, and out of the extreme caution for keeping our school community healthy. 

    Food Service will be available using our remote learning protocols. Should any students need food assistance during this time, then please email a cafeteria manager from any other school, with the exception of MJHS. Please place those orders by 9:00 a.m. each school day. Meals can be picked up from 11:00-11:30 a.m. The contact info, visit School Cafeteria Managers.

    For families that may be struggling with reliable access to the internet, please know that Wilson Central High School’s parking lot has been made available as a hotspot for additional support during this time. Also, please notify your student’s teachers if your internet is not reliable so that we can provide learning packets as needed.

    More detailed information about this transition to Remote Learning has been emailed to our WCHS families.

    We understand that this is a very difficult time for everyone and we appreciate all of the flexibility extended during implementation of our REMOTE Learning. Please let your student’s teachers know about individual needs or concerns. We will continue to give you updates as information becomes available.

    We have several students that have very dated restrictions on their lunch accounts. We are in the process of updating all these restrictions to make them current. If your student has a previous restriction on their lunch account and that restriction is no longer needed please email cafeteria manager April Foster at mooreapr100@wcschools.com to have that restriction lifted from your students account. We have had a lot of students come through that no longer require restrictions at the high school level and don't want them to have issues coming through the registers. If your student has a current restriction and it needs to stay on the account no action is needed. It will stay the way it is until we have parent confirmation to any changes. Thank you for allowing us to feed your students, we love seeing them in the cafeteria!

    This week, we celebrate Early Postsecondary Opportunities Week (EPSO)! 
    Tennessee students have an unprecedented opportunity for education and training beyond high school to ensure students are ready to take full advantage of the Tennessee Promise and succeed after high school.
    Early postsecondary opportunities allow students to:
    • earn postsecondary credits while in high school.
    • become familiar with postsecondary rigor and expectations.
    • develop confidence and skills for success in postsecondary learning.
    • make informed postsecondary and career decisions.
    • decrease the time and cost of completing a certificate or degree.
    Check out the following resources from Wilson County Schools:
    Have questions?  Contact your school counselor for more information.

  • We are still managing out student and attendance absences.  Student attendance has dropped a little since last week, but we will continue coming to school next week!  In the event we go remote in the future, please emphasis to your students that school and learning expectations will continue.  I'm going to include a remote learning schedule in the attachments to this email.  Students will be expected to "google meet" with teachers at least two days a week.  It's important we  continue learning.  It will not be like last spring, grades and attendance will be taken.  Hopefully we don't have to use remote, I do want students in the building with their teachers.

    Congratulations to the 2020-2021 Beta Club officers:
    President: Ashleigh Bonds
    Vice-President: Kevan Mehta

    Dance Team Competition Results
    I first just want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement this week. For those of you that checked in on us and our girls this last week, even if just passing in the hall or at the copier, or moving our dancers in your classrooms, I appreciate you! It’s been a crazy year and your support to help us get to this last weekend means the world to us.
    We were able to compete with a full team as we competed in Southhaven, MS this past weekend. We came in 2nd in Hip Hop out of 7 teams which is pretty impressive since we were only able to finish that dance this past week due to starting the season so late. We were able to overcome teams that were able to practice all summer with a full team.
    We came in 3rd in Game Day out of 8 teams. This routine style includes our school fight song, a sideline and a small routine. It is really similar to what we do on the sidelines during football games. This is the first time we have competed in this division and were able to place among teams that won or came in the top 5 at nationals this last year in this division, so we are really excited for that placement.
    Please congratulate these girls as you see them this week. They have worked so hard and we are so very proud of them!

  • Don't Forget Monday A Day students come to school
    Monday November 2nd (Grades 6 -12)
    •    IMPORTANT UPDATE – “A” day students in grades 6 -12 will report to school on Monday November 2nd due to schools closing on Tuesday November 3rd for elections .  No students will report on November 3rd and our modified hybrid schedule will resume on Wednesday November 4th for “B” day students.  Bart Barker will share this information with parents on Friday (October 16). 

    Tuesday – November 3rd (Stockpile Day – No Students)
    •    November 3rd will be a principal's discretion day excluding 1.5  hours which will be dedicated to a Schoology introduction.  The Schoology introduction can take place anytime during the day and will be provided by the district (more information coming soon).  Schoology will replace Thrivist starting January 1st, 2021, and we would like for everyone to start familiarizing themselves with the new program. There will be more in-depth training coming before full implementation. 

    The past couple of weeks several schools in middle Tennessee had to close due to Covid related absences including some right here in Wilson County.  Our student attendance has be 95% or better this week and we have been able to fill teacher absences.  Our students and teachers are both doing their part to keep us in school.  I do not anticipate Wilson Central having to close anytime soon.  We are all committed to keeping Wilson Central open.  This might not be a great situation but we are all making the best of it.


    Also I just want parents to know how much I appreciate the students.  I've had numerous substitutes and student teachers comment on how nice and respectful the students are at Wilson Central compared to other schools.  That makes me proud to be their principal.
