Final Opportunity for Underclassman Pictures

Students in grades 9-11 who had their school pictures taken in October may come to Westminster High School to pick up their portrait packages.  Pickup times this week are today, Wednesday 7:30am – 11:00am. 

Lifetouch will be back to WHS for underclassman school picture makeups and retakes on December 8 and December 10 (not Dec. 15 and 17 as previously announced).  Any underclassman who did not get their picture taken in October should plan to attend one of these dates.  Please sign up for a portrait appointment HERETo order pictures, please see the Lifetouch flyer HERE and use picture ID EVTGVKKFC. 

Any underclassman who is dissatisfied with their portrait package may return the package to the photography staff on Dec. 8 or Dec. 10 for a retake.  Please schedule your retake appointment at the link above.

Further questions regarding photos can be answered by Lifetouch Studios at 410-644-7700.

**Note – Students must be photographed by Lifetouch in order to appear in the yearbook.  Even if you do not intend to buy pictures, students should still attend a photo session to receive a school ID and to be included in the yearbook.  December 8 and December 10 will be the last opportunity to do this.

Programs and Pathways Scheduling Website

Westminster High School is excited to announce that our new PROGRAMS AND PATHWAYS WEBSITE is now live!   

The purpose of this site is to help students focus and plan for their future both at Westminster High School and beyond.

This site is for all current and future WHS students’ grades 8-12 and their families.

It is a one–stop informational site for students and families as we begin to schedule for the 2021-2022 school year.  Parents and students will be able to explore informational videos from every department to learn about all the opportunities that WHS has to offer and how these will prepare students for their chosen career. 

The site also includes grade specific informational videos from the counseling department that will walk students and families through the REQUIRED scheduling and ECP process.  These videos will include information on the following:

  • Graduation requirements
  • Career Completers and Majors
  • Carroll County Career and Technology Center
  • Advanced Placement Programs
  • Post- Secondary Connections
  • Dual Enrollment

CCPS Drive-up Tech Support (CCPS issued technology only)

Do you need tech support for a CCPS issued laptop? CCPS Tech Services will offer drive-up technology support at WHS on November 7th. 

October 24, 2020 – 9:00am – 1:00pm

Manchester Valley HS and Century HS

November 7, 2020 – 9:00am – 1:00pm

CCPS Drive-Up Tech Support scheduled for November 7th 2020 at WHS has been moved to a new location. The new location is at Winters Mill High School 

With the distribution of thousands of loaner laptops from all our school sites, there are the inevitable issues that have come up that require reconfiguration and/or repair. We have been able to assist many people using remote support methods, but there remain issues that require a technician to have physical interaction with the computer. To address these types of issues, CCPS Technology Services will be offering drive-up troubleshooting for devices that have been loaned from CCPS only.

In order to comply with all social distancing guidelines, we will require that everyone who arrives stay in their vehicles and our staff will come to get your device and all necessary information. Masks will be required when interacting with our staff, and we will be practicing all applicable sanitizing methods when collecting and returning the devices.  You will then be directed to a parking spot where you may wait until the repair is finished.  If the technician determines that the repair will take a significant amount of time, you will be updated with a time estimate of when to return.

We hope that by offering this method of service, we will be able to serve those who we have not been able to assist remotely or who require service outside of our traditional support hours.
