District Policies

  • District Policies

    WMS will follow and enforce all district policies including dress code policy 6.310 and cell phone policy 6.312. Both policies can be referenced below. All students must abide by these policies. Per policy, no bare midriffs are allowed, and tops will not reveal cleavage. Ripped, cut, or torn clothing may be worn as long as there is a layer of fabric or patches underneath. All electronic devices must be stored in the students' backpack while at school. If there is an emergency and you need to contact your student, please call the school office. Our students need to focus on academics while at school instead of being distracted by cell phones and other electronic devices. Thank you for your cooperation.

      • 7th Grade ImmunizationsThe Tennessee Department of Health requires all students to have the appropriate immunizations and vaccines on file in order to attend school. Students entering the 7th grade are required to have the following vaccinations prior to enrollment: 

        • Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis booster (Tdap) - evidence of one Tdap dose given any time before 7th grade entry is required regardless of Td history

        • Varicella - 2 doses or credible history of disease

        Please provide us with your student(s) updated shot record as soon as possible. Your delay to provide this documentation will result in your child not being able to return to school.

      WMS Way


        The Whitthorne Way outlines how our TIGERS can be READY, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE in all areas of the school building and in their behaviors and academic choices. 

        WMS Way

        As our TIGERS exemplify The Whitthorne Way, it helps them to become the portrait of a motivated and successful Whitthorne Middle School student.
