The 'late' Woodrow Wilson
Maybe it's a matter of adjusting to the temporary quarters at the University of the District of Columbia, but students at Woodrow Wilson High are having difficulty getting to school on time. In September, 670 of its 1,500 students (45 percent!) were late at least once; 358 (more than one in five) were tardy twice and 215 (one in seven) missed the opening bell three times, according to principal Pete Cahall.
"This is unacceptable," Cahall said in his weekly message to parents and students, a copy of which was shared with The Washington Post. "Students need to be to school on time as it is a major disruption to our learning environment. Our school day begins at 8:45 sharp."
