Greetings and welcome to 2020-2021. I look forward to meeting each and every student, teacher, and administrator in the school system and getting to know their families. I share the Washington County School Board’s dedication to helping our students achieve academic excellence. My family and I look forward to becoming active members of the community. I wholeheartedly believe that with dedication and hard work there are no limits for our students! As a teacher, principal and central services leader children are the reason we are here and I welcome the opportunity to support Washington County.
This year will be full of challenges as we work together to bring staff and students back to school in a safe supportive environment. The WCS Board has selected Plan C to open the school year and students will participate in a 100% Remote Learning experience through January 4, 2021. Although we are still on Plan C tutoring sessions can be arranged with your child's teacher and administrator. EOC's MUST take place on campus due to testing security rules and regulations. We must continue to work together to support our students!
Students are expected to participate in learning activities every day and attendance and grading will take place. It is critical to the academic success of your child for him/her to complete their studies each day. Assignments or areas you need additional support in please reach out to your child’s teacher first and then the principal. Please help us by working with your child daily to ensure they are maximizing the opportunity to learn.
As we move back to the school building with Plan B students will be divided into two groups with two days on campus and three home remote days. Please communicate with the Principal to ensure that all children in your household are on the same schedule. Increased safety measures will be required to ensure the health of all including but not limited to temperature checks, one direction hallways, limited movement with teachers moving instead of students, no common supplies... Parents must sign a Parent Attestation form for each child and must contact the school if symptoms arise in connection with COVID-19. We must all work to establish new norms for being together this year including face coverings, social distancing, eating in the classroom and increased hands washing.
As a parent of a student in Washington County Schools you have a right to know several pieces of key information about your child and the school. Federal laws allow you to know about the license and professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers. We want and welcome your active participation in educating students. I am extremely enthusiastic to be named the new Superintendent of the Washington County Schools. Any parent or community group that would like to participate as a member of the Superintendent Advisory or Parent Advisory group please reach out to my office with your contact information. Your voices and ideas are welcome! Join us!
