Hello WASHS Famililies & Community, Today we had an unplanned evacuation of the building due to a fire alarm going off at approximately 9:18 am. Through coordinated efforts of the Waynesboro Fire Department and the WASD maintenance department we have confirmed that the fire alarm went off due to a malfunction in one of our fire detectors - there was no fire and no evidence that the alarm was intentionally set off.  We are proud of our learners and staff for promptly following the protocols that we practice each month. In spite of the cold weather we had everyone evacuated and accounted for in less than 15 minutes. We returned to the building at approximately 9:55 am and classes resumed at 10:00 am.

Ms. Zaruba's State & Local history classes continued their visits to local sites by visiting the Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library. Ms. Zaruba thanks Terri Scott who provided an "incredible" experience for students! Ms. Scott provided a history lesson and then the tour of the library. Learners absolutely loved exploring the original house, including the doorbell, the many fireplaces and old cupboards and the height of the ceilings/doorways. Their favorite part of the tour was the basement where Terri revealed a secret room used for the Underground Railroad. A great big thank you for her time and support!

This week, WASHS learners learned about safety procedures that we will follow in the case of severe weather, fire, or an intruder. Today we practiced our intruder drill, also known as Run-Hide-Fight. Students were clearly informed this was a drill when it began. I am proud to share that our staff and learners did an excellent job during today's Run-Hide-Fight drill, having the building evacuated in less than five minutes and all learners accounted for in less than 10 minutes.  Additionally, earlier this week, our learners listened to an overview of Safe2Say Something, which is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General. Safe2Say allows learners to make anonymous tips in order to “say something” about threats from individuals either about themselves or to others. These tips are then referred to the appropriate agency, or our school, for follow-up and possible action. Thank you for your continued support of our learners and our building safety.
