  • Transportation - While all bus routes will not be running, we want to ensure students who do not have a ride to school that morning can still access Orientation.  As a result, students who need transportation to West Potomac for Orientation can report to the closest elementary school listed below or 7949 Jana Lee Ave. 
    • Bus Transportation will be available at the following elementary schools: Belle View, Bucknell, Fort Hunt, Groveton, Hollin Meadows, Hybla Valley, Stratford Landing, and Waynewood.

    • Busses will drop off at the same locations after orientation at approximately 12:30pm.
  • All 9th Graders will report to their Advisory/3rd Period at the start of Orientation (listed as 3rd period on their schedule).  Class Schedules become available at 6am tomorrow on ParentVue and StudentVue.  Adults in the hallways will also have a list of everyone’s 3rd period Advisory location for students who do not have the app. We will have many adults and student leaders in the building to help everyone find their correct location!
  • New 10th-12th Graders should report directly to the library.  
  • Each student will receive a paper copy of their schedule when they arrive to their 3rd period advisory class.  
  • We are excited to share that our new addition will be open and accessible for students and staff tomorrow (Rooms 600s and 700s).  There are still some last minute items that are being finished for example flooring in the hallway, etc.  The area is safe for students and staff and everything will be finished for Monday. 
  • Orientation will include an opportunity for 9th graders to meet their peer mentor, advisory teacher, tour the building as well as go through their class schedule!  We look forward to seeing all our 9th graders tomorrow!
