If you are interested in participating in the game either as a player, cheerleader or coach, you had to come to ONE of the informational meetings! NO EXCEPTIONS! 

You MUST have attended one of the informational meetings in order to participate in the event and receive the appropriate form to participate. Remember that forms are due to Mrs. Farrington in room 229 (Junior class) or Mrs. Acker in room 249 (senior class) NO LATER THAN Monday, Sept. 28th! 

Names of team coaches and captains are due to the appropriate class sponsor by the end of the day on Friday, Oct. 2nd.

Homecoming 2015 FYI

Welcome to a new school year!

The faculty and staff at WBHS hope that you had an enjoyable summer. School has begun, but homecoming is right around the corner. This year the homecoming game is on Friday, October 23rd with the dance following on Saturday, October 24th at the William Byrd High School main gym from 7:00 pm until 11:00 pm. For those wondering, dress code has not changed from previous years and continues to be a semi- formal affair.

Tickets will go on pre-sale to SENIORS only for a special low price of $20.00 per ticket during lunches in the senior cafeteria during the week of October 5th to October 9th. Seniors be sure to buy yours at this special low price before ticket sales open up to the rest of the student body. The rest of ticket sales will go as follows:

Oct. 12th- 21st: $25.00 each (Open To All)
Oct. 22nd- 23rd: $30.00 each (Last Minute Price Open To All)

Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. All students MUST have a ticket purchased by Friday, Oct. 23rd no later than 1:45 pm. No exceptions will be made. If a student's date does not currently attend WBHS, they will need to fill out an Out Of School Date Form (available below, in the main office and outside of room 229) and return it to Mrs. Farrington by October 23rd in room 229. This is a dance for high school students and recent graduates. Middle school students (6th thru 8th) are not permitted to attend.

Non WBHS Date Form 2015: Be sure to return to Mrs. Farrington in room 229 no later than Friday, October 23, 2015
