Ninth Grade Orientation

Ninth Grade Orientation

Tuesday, August 31, 2021

7:30 – 10:30 am

We are excited to welcome our newest students at our annual freshman orientation. On Tuesday, August 31, the Class of 2025 will gather in the Performing Arts Center for a brief overview of the many opportunities at WHRHS.

After the assembly, ninth-graders will follow the attached schedule, first meeting with peer leaders who will share their experiences and offer advice for a successful high-school journey. Students then will explore their schedules and meet their teachers. Peer leaders and faculty will be in the hallways to provide directions and answer questions. Throughout the morning, students are encouraged to ask questions and meet new people.

Bus transportation will be provided. Students can find information about their bus stop location and the regular pick-up time by using Parent/Student Access. Pick-up time for the orientation is the same as the normal pick-up time during the school year. For more information on setting up Parent Access go to the WHRHS School-Opening Information page.

Incoming ninth-graders can pick up their Chromebooks from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm on Mondays - Thursdays or 8:00 am - 12:30 pm on Fridays. There will also be an opportunity to pick it up during orientation if needed. 

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday, August 29. If you have any questions, please call vice principal, Mr. Flakker, at (908) 647-4800 ext. 6975.
