The November Family Newsletter  can be accessed HERE. Please review this newsletter for important and upcoming dates in December, including holiday spirit days, informational items from the school counselors, reminders about attendance, morning arrival reminders, and departmental updates. 

Third, while we hope this doesn’t come up anytime soon, I want to again remind families of the District’s plan for school closures due to inclement weather this school year. Following a survey of district families and staff in the Spring of 2023, the approved WASD calendar for the current school year includes two built-in snow make-up days and up to 5 Flexible Instruction or FID Days. Please review the FID Day information on page 2 of the monthly newsletter for additional details, including attendance requirements. Please reach out to me if you have questions about FID days. Remember, a Flexible Instructional Day is a required school day. Students must log on to their classes in order to be marked present for the day and the WASHS assignment completion policy will apply.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at WASHS, I wish all of our families a Happy Thanksgiving and a relaxing break!
