Congratulations to Mrs. Christine Butler

We are pleased to announce the rebirth of our school newsletter! Mrs. Emerson’s Journalism I students have produced a new, electronic, student-generated newsletter, The Bruin Bulletin. Kudos to Mrs. Emerson and her student writer/editors!
Western Branch High School offers a number of different ways for students to make up or gain extra instruction. From our When Instruction Happens (WIN) program to Extended Days to Tutoring Opportunities, we try to do all we can for our Bruins.
Please be aware of Chesapeake Public Schools policy 9-20 B, which you can access through this link which concerns disruptive activity. This information will also be available in our main office for your review. Thank you for your continued support as we work together for the safety, education, and welfare of our students.
