WPPS SEEks input on 2020-2021 School Calendar 


The West Point School Board is beginning to prepare for next year’s school calendar.  The link below is to a short survey to gather input from a variety of WPPS stakeholder groups (students, parents, teachers, and community members).  Please take time to read the introduction to the survey which provides important background information. Your input will be very helpful in developing the 2020-2021 school-year calendar.  The survey will close on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.

Go to the School Calendar Survey to provide your input.  


WPPS wins dorothy S. mcauliffe nutrition award 


For the third year in a row, WPPS has won the Dorothy McAuliffe Nutrition Award for going "above and beyond by operating all available federal child nutrition programs and achieving exceptional participation in the school breakfast program." 

Originally launched in 2017, the award is named in honor of former First Lady of Virginia Dorothy McAuliffe, in recognition of her efforts to end childhood hunger in the Commonwealth. “Virginia has become a national model for ending childhood hunger because of the hard work and innovative approaches of this year’s School Nutrition Award recipients,” said Mrs. McAuliffe. “We’re thrilled to celebrate these school districts for their ongoing commitment to making sure students can access the meals and other resources they need to succeed.”
