The Williamsville High School Athletic Department will be hosting its mandatory parent/athlete night for all students who will be or are interested in participating in a sport for the upcoming Fall season. This includes football, volleyball, boys’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ cross country, boys’ and girls’ golf, and cheerleading. The meeting will take place on Monday, May 21 starting at 6:00 pm in main gym at Williamsville High School. After the main session is finished in the gym, each sport will separate and conduct sport specific meetings. Important information for both open gyms this summer, as well as when tryouts and practices will take place this Fall will be covered at this time. It is highly recommended that you bring your health insurance card with you, as mandatory insurance waivers and IHSA paperwork will also be completed at this meeting; head coaches for each individual sport will also be collecting updated physicals if you have them. As a reminder, student-athletes will need updated physicals in order to participate in their desired sport.

Our job as a district is to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment. Our job as administrators is to protect all students. It is also our obligation to protect the privacy rights of
all students, which can be challenging at times, when social media is used to release information that is incorrect or false. Information may be requested from the school administration when
dealing with these sensitive situations. If warranted, please consider calling your child’s school.

Illinois Youth Survey for 8th Graders
Williamsville Schools are working with the Center for Prevention Research and Development at the University of Illinois to conduct the Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) at both the high school and junior high. The primary purpose of IYS is to better understand Illinois youth risk and protective behaviors as they relate to student problems and academic success. The survey will be administered to grades 8, 9, 10, 11, & 12 the week of Feb 26-March 2. The survey is completely voluntary and privacy will be strictly protected. Students will be given an electronic survey online and it will be completed in one class period.
The IYS questionnaire asks about: personal use of alcohol and other drugs, perception of risks, where accessed, consequences of use, approval or disapproval of use; students' feelings about their school experience; family and personal characteristics; family communication about substance use; feeling about self and moods; and other student health behaviors — food intake, exercise, height and weight. While the survey asks personal questions about illegal behavior, several steps are taken to protect privacy of students participating in the survey. Students can skip any or all questions if they feel uncomfortable.
Collecting information from Illinois students has many benefits to youth in your community and throughout the state. Results are summarized by grade level and reported back to your school to help determine what programs may be needed to keep students safe and healthy. Obtaining full participation is very important to the ability of your child’s school and community to continue to improve the programs and strategies to prevent youth problem behaviors and enhance youth development.
If you DO NOT want your child to participate in the survey, please notify the school counselor, Ashley Damery, at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 23. If you have any questions regarding the project and wish to contact a staff person at the University of Illinois, please contact Nancy Flowers at (888) 333-5612 (Illinois toll free) or email her at email@example.com
