This is a reminder that Wednesday, May 4, is an early release day in the School District of Washington. All students will be released one hour early.
Click on the attached links below to see the early release day schedule and procedures, along with the 2015-16 academic calendar.
For students who have been issued a 1:1 device, those devices will be collected at the end of the school year. Seniors will turn in their devices to the HelpDesk once they have finished their last final.
Seniors will turn in their devices, chargers and bags.
Elementary students will turn in their devices to their classroom teachers during the last week of school. Elementary students will keep their bags and chargers. They will need to bring the same bag and charger with them when classes resume next year, or they cannot be issued a device.
Ninth through eleventh graders will turn in their devices to the teachers of their last hour final exam. These students will also keep their bags and chargers and will need to bring them back during registration next year in order to be issued their device.
Devices will be cleaned and checked for damages over the summer. If repairs are necessary, a claim will be filed through One2OneRisk.com, and parents will be notified via email of associated fees for repairs. If you know your child has missing or damaged items, please have them report this to the HelpDesk, or their homeroom teacher, as soon as possible so this can be addressed before the last day.
Contact the HelpDesk at the high school or your child's school for more information.
The School District of Washington is proud to offer these devices for educational purposes and we appreciate the support and the cooperation of everyone involved.
Washington High School’s 11th Annual Jordan Scheer Children’s Relay for Life took place Friday, April 29, at Scanlan Stadium on the WHS campus.
The event was put together by the WHS student council and leadership class.
Approximately $20,261.25 was raised from the event.
Proceeds are donated to the Franklin County Relay for Life and benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer awareness.
Over 500 students in grades three through six from the School District of Washington and neighboring parochial schools participated in the event.
This year’s event chairs were seniors Sammie Brueggemann, Kristen Mittler and Jaimie Kuchem and juniors Libbie Harrison, Madison Straatmann and Dylan Brocato.
The relay is named in honor of Jordan Scheer, a WHS graduate who lost his battle to cancer shortly after his graduation in 2005.
Speaking at the event was Washington High School junior Lexie Ingram, who’s younger brother, Alec, currently is battling cancer. Lexi and her family led the walk as the event began.
The theme was superheroes. The slogan was, “Searching for a cure or soaring through the sky, heroes are everywhere; watch them fly by. Students by day and heroes by night, relay is on a mission to win the fight!”
