    Timeline for Forecasting for Classes for 2021/2022

    January 2021

    • All students who are currently living in the IBW neighborhood and who are enrolled at a PPS middle school do not need to enroll/register.  We will get in touch with you to get your forecasting materials in to us.  
    • Forecasting guide becomes available in early January and advertised to students at RGMS, Jackson, Oddysey and on our website with information about an online survey for classes.  This year all forecasting will be online: IBW Forecasting 2021-22
    • For families new to PPS (private school or new to the neighborhood), we will need you to enroll with WHS.  Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year can begin any time.  We just need proof that you live in the neighborhood, immunizations, IEP and school records from previous school.  Please start your process by contacting our counseling secretary, Sharon Dailey, by email at sdailey@pps.net
    • Mid-January forecasting directions will be sent to families that live in the IBW neighborhood as well as posted on our website
    • We hope to have all of our incoming 9th grade students forecasted by January 31st.   

     May 2021

    • If allowed (COVID-19 safe) we will host an in-person event for all of our incoming 9th graders.  We will send information to everyone who has enrolled with us through school email, middle school newsletters, WHS facebook page and our website.
