Wayne Memorial High School is the only high school in the state to have a dedicated Upward Bound program inside our school Please see the attached video and considering having your student join.
Pictures ordered during picture day will be going home on Monday. Students will be given their picture packets in class by their teacher (most likely math class). If you do not like your student’s photograph, students can take retakes on October 29th. Students will need to have their picture packet with them to go to retakes. Students that missed picture day will also be given the opportunity to take a picture for their ID and yearbook on October 29th.

Pick-up and Drop-off
Please be aware that our local police department will be increasing enforcement of traffic and parking laws during pick-up and drop-off times around Wayne Memorial High School. Speeding, stopping in the middle of the road, and parking/standing/stopping along Fourth Street are violations that will be heavily enforced. Parents may pull into the Senior lot (located on Fourth Street), use the circle drop-off lane on Glenwood, use the Underclass lot (located by soccer fields off Glenwood), or drop-off in the "tree street" area as indicated by road signs. Your support and efforts to ensure the safety of all students is appreciated.
Please review the dance contract prior to the homecoming dance. I have included a few of the rules as an effort to remind parents.
Admittance to dance:
- a. Students MUST present a current student ID in order to gain entry to the dance.
- b. Guests must present current school identification (for those in high school) or state identification (for those who have graduated) to enter the dance.
- c. School rules are applicable and will be enforced (dress code, language, etc)
- d. Tickets are not transferable.
- e. There is no reentry to dances. Once a student leaves the dance, they may not return.
- f. No entry to the dance after 8:30pm
- g. Students must be in attendance for at least a half-day on Friday to attend the dance.
Morning Career Tech
The last bus for Career Tech leaves at 7:10am. If you have a student with morning Career Tech, please remind them to get on the bus as soon a possible.
This past week, student were given student ID’s. Students will be expected to have a student ID at all school functions. Students will be asked for ID to get into sporting events, getting on the bus, and admission to dances. Picture retake day is September 29th.
With the start of school, it is a good time to talk to students about strangers and how to manage situations they may encounter when they are walking in the community. Here is a link with some tips and advice for parents of teenagers. https://preventionactionalliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Know-To-Talk-Teen-Stranger-Danger.pdf
In the coming weeks, we will be practicing fire drills, tornado drills, and lock down drills. Please speak to your student about the importance of taking these drills serious. Our administrative team monitors these drills and makes minor adjustments based on our expectations and practices. It is important that everyone, staff and student, takes these seriously.
Football Game Traffic
After a football game, please have your student walk over to the circle drive off of Glenwood. This is the location parents should pick up students. The circle drive provides a safe place and smooth traffic flow. If is is raining, students can also wait under the overhang by the pool. We do not want cars driving by the football field where over a thousand people, players, and our band are walking out. Also, our away team buses leave from the field. Your support of this is appreciated in keep our students safe.
