The Wissahickon School District has recently completed the installation of a new phone system. Our extensions now follow a pattern based upon the building you are calling.

If you are trying to reach a particular department or staff member please go to the district website under district directory for the new extension. There is also an auto-attendant menu that can help direct your call. Click the tab for a list of each building's extension patterns.
