Class of 2024 Freshman Orientation March 2

Freshmen Orientation for the incoming Class of 2024 will be held at Winnebago High School at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 2.  The WHS Academic Advisors will present registration information and materials for the 2020-2021 school year to 8th grades students on February 25 in science classes. Please look for several forms to come home: a pre-printed Registration Form plus driver education information and a specific Driver Education Application.

The Registration Form lists required core courses. Placement recommendations are made using courses taken and grades earned during middle school, standardized test scores (i.e. IAR and STAR) and 8th grade teacher recommendations. Feel free to contact teachers regarding placement; we welcome discussion of best choices for each student. Students and their family will complete elective choices on the Registration Form. Completed forms (including any eligible Drivers Ed forms) are due to the middle school office by Tuesday, March 10 at 3 p.m.

The Course Description Book for the 2020-21 school year is available on the Winnebago District website ( on the high school page. This book has detailed information about classes and sequences. We encourage all students and families to know the graduation requirements and to plan a four year sequence of classes based upon requirements and future goals.
Please read the Schedule Change Policy that is included in the Course Description Book and also included on the Registration Form. We ask that students expect to take the classes that they request. Careful choices now ensure class availability plus proper staffing and funding.

Please note that Driver Education requires a specific application that is separate from the class Registration Form. The Driver Education Application is due to the middle school office by Tuesday, March 10 at 3 p.m. Students who turn in a Driver Education Application after March 10 will automatically be placed upon a waiting list regardless of age or grade level.
