Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the entire staff at Wausau West, I would like to welcome you and your family back for the 2023-2024 school year! It is exciting to know that we are going to welcome yet another great class of freshmen to complement our already stellar student body.
As we move into another school year, we are extremely excited to get our students back in the building. Construction from the recently passed referendum is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-September. I will send specific updates to help you follow the progress. Our building will be getting many needed upgrades that will allow us to better serve our students moving forward. Though we will have to find some “workarounds” to maintain our traditional programs throughout the next couple of years, we are confident that our students will continue to receive a great high school experience, and the results of the construction will be well worth the temporary inconvenience.

As we move into the new school year, it is important to remember that Wausau West offers many opportunities for our students to become involved. Please encourage your children to get involved and experience as much of what Wausau West has to offer as possible. Student involvement in school activities ignites school pride, helps develop relationships, enables students to meet new friends, and enriches the learning and overall high school experience. Probably the most important reason we like to encourage student participation is that it gives students an added reason to be excited about school.

Please note the Schedule Pick-up dates/times listed on the following page. Remember, yearbook/ID pictures will be taken in the commons during these times. Please have your child dressed appropriately. Students will receive their ID within a couple of minutes after having their pictures taken and they will need their ID to attend many Wausau West events.

I hope you find the pages that follow informative. We continue to work to identify questions and communicate answers; however, feel free to contact us if you have additional questions. Go Warriors!
