Homecoming Week 2015
Students Vote to Keep Homecoming at WHS, Parade Added to Activities
There has been some discussion among students about whether Homecoming should take place at WHS this year or moved to PHS due to the use of temporary bleachers. The permanent bleachers have been deemed unsafe and are currently fenced off.
Staff went into almost all of the 1st period classes Friday morning to present the options to the students. A total of 798 students voted and 65.5% wanted to keep homecoming at WHS with 34.5% wanting to move it to PHS. The data was then shared with WJUSD Superintendent Dr. Armstrong who reached out to the Board of Trustees. Principal Karrie Sequeira was informed that the students have made the decision and voices were heard. Plans to celebrate Homecoming at Woodland High will proceed.
Homecoming floats will parade along city streets beginning at 1:30 pm Friday, October 16. Students will be dismissed from school at noon.The parade will start from the student parking lot located on Beamer Street. They will go south on California, turn left on Main Street, turn left on West Street, and will make a final left turn on Beamer Street. The decision to have a parade was made following a meeting with Dr. Armstrong, the City of Woodland, and the Woodland Police Department.

Safety Plan for Unsafe Bleachers
WHS stadium bleachers on the home and visitor sides and the press box have been fenced off after being deemed unsafe by inspectors.

School Board Declares October Anti-Bullying Month
Citing the belief that all students have a right to a safe and health school environment, the WJUSD Board of Trustees passed an anti-bullying resolution identifying October as Anti-Bullying Month at a recent meeting.
The resolution identifies the many forms of bullying including, physical bullying, teasing or name-calling, social exclusion, cyber bullying, peer sexual harassment, bullying about race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity. Bullying in any form can directly affect a student's health and well-being as well as their educational experience.
The Board had previously adopted a Bullying Prevention Policy that supports programs and addresses the prevention, intervention, and ultimate elimination of all types of bullying as part of a coordinated safety school policy.
