Mr. Pappas sent an email this morning to all graduates of the Class of 2020 regarding the July 28th Commencement Ceremony. There is a survey (in the email) graduates need to complete so we know who is attending the ceremony. Additionally, an email and phone message just went out to all families of graduates regarding this information.
On 6/9/2020, the School Board voted to have a July 28th (6:30 PM) commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020. The Class of 2020, just received an school-issued email with details pertaining to this ceremony and on how to pick up a diploma, if they cannot attend the ceremony.
For the months of June and July, the WASHS office will be closed on Fridays. Please call ahead if you are visiting the office on Monday-Thursday, as we are still under the COVID-19 restrictions. Thank you.

You can come at any time during those times. We are not doing sign-ups b/c we want to be flexible with your schedules. Please review the email and voicemail that were sent on 5/14/2020.
At the recent school board meeting, it was approved to move the date for the 2020 commencement ceremony. Two dates were approved, 6/23 (rain date 6/24) and 7/28 (rain date 7/29). The District will continue following the Governor's orders as we move through this process.
This message is for parents of current 8th graders at WAMS and families looking to move to WASHS for the 20-21 school year. We hope to have a New Family/Student tour in early August.
