  • 2019/2020 Yearbooks!

    Dear WHS Families-
    We hope this email finds you well.  Thank you for your patience as we work behind the scenes to develop a plan for the 2020/2021 school year.  
    We are pleased to announce that the 2019/2020 yearbooks have arrived at WHS and we will be distributing them to students at our drive-thru event on Tuesday, August 11th from 11:00am-2:00pm.   
    Here are some details about Tuesday's event: 
    • Students must pre-purchase their yearbook by midnight on Monday, August 10th their schoolpay.com account. 
    • If you have questions about if your student purchased their yearbook last school year, you can find your receipt through email or on your student's school pay account.  
    • The distribution will be in the south side staff parking lot (Vermont side of WHS) divided into two lanes.  Incoming sophomores and juniors on one side and incoming seniors and class of 2020 graduates on the other side of the parking lot for two drive thru lanes.
    • Please wear a mask while interacting with our staff.  
    • If this date and time do not work for you, we will have other opportunities to collect your yearbook at a TBD date.
    We understand there are many questions about WHS Registration and what the fall classes will look like for our students.   We are in the process of developing a safe plan for students to get school photos, Trimet Hop Passes and student ID cards issued during our regularly scheduled registration.  This year textbooks, school supplies, costs/contributions will happen at a later date.  Parents will be able to verify and update their student's information through parent vue.  Parents who are not set up with parentvue will get an activation code sent to them via email on Monday, August 10th.  More information and details to come as soon as we have the plan approved and finalized.  
    Again, thank you for your patience as we work through these unprecedented times.  As soon as we have more information to share, we will send through parent/student email, school messenger, post on our website and social media.  Stay tuned.
    Thank you,
    Erica Caldwell

  • Changing the Name of WHS

    Dear Wilson Community,


    Over the years, a growing number of students, families and staff at Wilson High School have advocated for changing the name of our school. As some of you may know, President Woodrow Wilson was a known racist and segregationist.  He supported the Ku Klux Klan, he (re)segregated the federal workers, and he ensured that racial equality was abandoned by the League of Nations as a founding principle.  President Woodrow Wilson’s racist beliefs and policies were evident during his tenure as a governor and university president as well.  


    As the proud principal of Wilson High School, I also believe that we must change the name of our school and that we must begin this important process now.  Given Woodrow Wilson’s racist legacy, it is clear that his beliefs and actions stand in conflict with our school’s and our district’s commitment to racial equity and social justice.


    More than 2,000 students, families and staff have signed a petition asking that we rename Woodrow Wilson High School.  Last week Hui Hui Hutchinson (‘22), Casimiro Cox (‘22) and Ms. Ellen Whatmore provided powerful testimonies before the  school board and advocated for the change.  Another one of our student leaders, Mia Sedory ('21), sent a letter to the Superintendent to explain why our school should sever ties with President Woodrow Wilson.  Other student groups, including our Black Student Union, have long advocated for this change as well.


    We are in early stages of this important process.  I hope to meet with PPS district leaders this week to learn more about the policy that governs the naming/renaming of district property.  I promise to keep you in the loop as we articulate what the community-engagement process will entail.  In the meantime, please read and learn about President Woodrow Wilson’s racist legacy and why other institutions are changing their names as well.  


    As always, let me know if you have any questions.

  • 2020-2021 School Year

    Dear Wilson Community,

    We are at the end of a historic school year.  I know that the year has been full of ups and downs.  Please know that we appreciate all the support that you have offered to our staff and especially our students at home.

    The State of Oregon released new guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year. The focus is to ensure a safe and healthy environment for students and staff. PPS will provide further guidance for schools before next school year. The WHS Admin team will continue to evaluate this information as it becomes available. As plans are finalized, information will be posted to the WHS website and you will receive an email. If you are not receiving emails from WHS please email wilsonhs@pps.net to be added to the distribution list.

     I hope you and your family have a good summer.  

    With Gratitude,

    Filip Hristić, Ed.D.

    Principal, Wilson High School
