Suicide Prevention

Anyone may get help any time.  Here are three ways:
  • Text HELPNOW to 20121
  • In Indiana, call 1-800-662-3445
  • Nationwide, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
If you need help or you want to help someone -- friend or stranger:
  • Tell an adult, or
  • Call/Text the hotline, or
  • Call 911.
Show someone you care.  Just ask if they're okay, and let them talk.  Listening is a powerful tool, and we're all capable of using it.

AP UPDATE – EXAM REGISTRATION and FEES

WHEN DO I NEED TO MAKE AP EXAM DECISIONS?

Exams will be ordered on November 15th this year. All decisions must be made and fees paid by November 1st. If you will NOT be taking the AP Exam, please let your AP teacher know by November 1st.

HOW MUCH DO I OWE AND HOW DO I PAY?

  1.  Establish residency.  You must live in the WLCSC corporation in order to send your child to this school.  Go here to view the map:    http://www.wl.k12.in.us/info/school-boundaries.  Once you have a lease or purchase agreement, we will need a copy to keep in the student's file.
  2.  Make an appointment for math placement (and language testing, if your student is not a native English speaker).  Your child will take one or two tests -- one to determine the math class and, if needed, one to determine English language abilities.  You may contact our registrar, Mrs. Jennifer Zink ( eMail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 765-746-0418), to set up those appointments.  When your child comes in for the first test, you should come also to get the enrollment forms.
