Our administration building will be open various hours as we support summer school through the break.

Summer School

Summer School classes will be held at Whitney High School from June 15 through July 15 (classes will not be held on Fridays). Please note that absences of more than two days or more than six hours will result in the student being dropped from the course.

Thundercats Performing Arts Summer Camp

Come join the Thundercats Performing Arts Summer CampRegister your students aged 7-12 (grades 2-7) and they will enjoy acting, singing, and dancing in Whitney Highs School's impressive theater. We hope to see you there!

Summer Work Permits

Students planning to work over the summer must obtain a work permit. While school is in session, permits may be obtained in the College and Career Center. During summer school, permits may be picked up in the Whitney High School Administration Building. Once summer school is over (after July 15), the Rocklin Unified School District office will have permits available. All summer work permits expire the first week of school and students who continue to work after school begins will need to renew their work permit.

Official Transcript Requests

Over summer break you may find you need to obtain an official transcript to submit with college and scholarship applications. To request an official transcript during summer break, contact Mrs. Simpson, Registrar, at 632-6500, ext. 6427, or by email. Please provide the student's name and date of birth, as well as the name of the college and the address to which the official transcript should be mailed. There is a $1.00 fee for each official transcript. Mrs. Simpson will check her mail and voicemail periodically over the summer to fulfill official transcript requests.

Community Service

Summer is a great time for students to complete their 25 hours of community service to fulfill their graduation requirement. Submit a community service contract for each volunteer experience you complete to the College and Career Center. Students of the 2016 graduating class should have their 25 hours completed by August 18, 2015.

Schedule Pick Up

Schedules for the 2015-16 school year will be available for pick up as long as the student's emergency card has been thoroughly completed and all fees and debts have been paid. The schedule pick up process will begin at the attendance windows on the following days:
 
12th Grade     Monday, August 10 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
11th Grade Tuesday, August 11 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
10th Grade Wednesday, August 12     8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
9th Grade Friday, August 14 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
 
If you are unavailable (out of town, at work, etc.) on your pick up day, you may send a representative in your place as long as you have provided them the required documentation: your completed emergency card, payment for any fees and debts, and a note signed by you granting the representative permission to pick up your schedule. Otherwise, you may pick up your schedule in your homeroom on the first day of school, August 18. Homeroom lists will be posted all over campus on the first day of school.

Schedule Corrections

The Counseling Center has made every effort to match student needs with available classes for the 2015-16 school year. Students had ample opportunity to adjust their schedule; therefore, there should be no reason for a schedule change unless there is an error. Schedule corrections will only be made for the following reasons: 1) a student is enrolled in a class they have previously completed; 2) a student is enrolled in a class they are not eligible to take; 3) a course or period is duplicated; 4) a course prerequisite has been met or not met; and 5) a teacher has requested the correction. If your change meets these criteria, please go to the Counseling Center in the Administration Building on the following days:
 
12th Grade     Monday, August 10 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
11th Grade Wednesday, August 12     1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
10th Grade Wednesday, August 12 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
9th Grade  Friday, August 14 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
 

Railroad Safety

California had the highest percentage of train casualties in the United States in 2013. Practice railroad track safety by crossing only at designated pedestrian or roadway crossings. Trains are heavy and take a long time to stop. Remember to stay alert, turn off music, and never try to beat a train across the tracks.

Senior Awards Night

Teachers and administrators gathered in the WHS Theater to recognize the accomplishments of 75 seniors. Students were honored with college, university, and community awards; military awards; awards for straight A’s all four years, perfect ACT/SAT scores, and perfect attendance; CSF Lifetime Members, AP scholars, the National Honor Society, National Merit Scholars, Whitney High School athletes of the year, assist-a-grad scholarships, distinguished scholars, valedictorians, and top cat awards. Congratulations!

Forensic Science Students Stage Crime Scenes

Ms. Brun's Forensic Science students have been learning how to collect, preserve, and analyze criminal data all year and now they are putting their skills to the test. Students staged crime scenes, leaving clues such as blood and hair and handwriting samples for fellow students to solve the crimes.

Rocklin Unified School District Water Use

The District is working aggressively to reduce the use of water and to comply with the latest drought requirements. The District has been staying ahead of the restrictions by acting responsibly and aggressively. California is now into it’s fourth consecutive year of drought conditions and as a large water user, the District is tasked with managing this limited resource.

The District produced a “FAQ” sheet for the community, providing guidance on how to report problems with run off or damaged sprinklers. To read the “FAQ” sheet, CLICK HERE.
