WGHS Safety Procedures

  • The safety of our students is paramount with us, and we want to do all we can to continue to make Webster Groves High School a safe haven for our students.  Please review the following safety procedures for the 2020-21 school year:

    For Our Students

    During the school year, our building will officially open at 7:30 a.m. (with the exception of late start days, on which the building opens at 8:30 a.m.). Students may not enter the building until that time.  Students will use the Senior Entrance to enter until 8:00 a.m.  Please note the following times students are allowed to enter other areas of the building:

    • Library opens at 7:30 a.m.
    • Cafeteria opens at 7:30 a.m.
    • Junior Entrance/Roberts Gym Entrance opens at 8:00 a.m.


    Each day at 8:00 a.m., all of our exterior doors will be locked. Students may exit these doors, but they can only re-enter through the Senior Entrance using the buzzer system.  The gates in front of the high school on Selma Avenue shall also be locked from 8:30 a.m.—2:00 p.m. during school days for the safety of our students.


    Students MUST not open locked exterior doors for visitors.


    Seniors who exit campus for lunch will re-enter at the Senior Entrance and must present their IDs.
