School lunches cost $1.75 and breakfast costs $1.10. Applications for the free/reduced lunch program must be completed and signed before they can be approved. Students who participated here or in the elementary school last year will be included in the program for SEPTEMBER ONLY. All students who wish to continue must have a signed form on file at Whitehall. Forms can be obtained from the office.
When your child returns to school, he or she must return with a written parental excuse note. This note should be given to the child's homeroom teacher. The student has as many days to make-up the work as they were absent.
A student is considered tardy at 9:15am. If they are late due to buses, they will receive a pass to enter class. If they are late for any other reason, they should report to the office to receive a late pass.
Visitors are allowed and welcome at Whitehall. All visitors must sign-in at the main office and receive a visitor's badge.
If you are able to volunteer, contact your child’s teacher, the office or the PTA. Any volunteer or mentor working on a regular basis with students, in an unsupervised capacity, must undergo a criminal background check with fingerprinting. A criminal background check and fingerprinting is required only one time. The fee is currently $66.00. Chaperones who will participate in a day field trip or an overnight school trip must undergo a commercial background check. This does not require fingerprinting. The fee is currently $8.00 for a commercial background check. This is required annually. Call the Fingerprinting Office at 301-952-6775 for additional information.
Teachers can be contacted by calling the main office at 301-805-1000. If they are not available, then a message will be left and the teacher will return the call as soon as possible. All teachers do have email addresses where they can be contacted at any time. These are listed on this website by department or grade level.
Whitehall’s school colors are blue and gold. Our mascot is the wildcat.
