WST Weekly Update
October 4 - October 8, 2021
From the Director
Staff will complete the progress reports on Tuesday, October 19. Please check your student's grades prior to that to see where they may need support in completing projects and summative assessment activities.
Speaking of cooler weather, safety is our priority at WST and our programs simulate the workplace and expected workplace safety. At times, your student may be required to work outside in the rain and should have rain gear to support their continued learning while on campus. If your student needs rain gear for their program and qualifies for free or reduced lunch, please contact Nora Zollweg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no school for WST students on Monday, October 11, 2021. WST will be closed for the day.
WST understands that student sending schools have a variety of activities happening during the day, such as state testing, senior meetings, and more. If your student will be tardy, have to leave early, or will miss WST for one of these events, please contact the registrar to approve the absence. Erin Mckiernan can be reached at email@example.com.
A big thank you to families for following all Covid rules and expectations, we appreciate all of those that are following the face mask expectations (wearing a cloth or medical mask from top of nose to under their chin) and distancing expectations. Students, thank you for helping to keep WST Covid Free! Keep reporting close contact, exposure, or Covid positive information.

Keeping WST Clean:
There are many garbage cans throughout the building, please encourage your student to use the garbage can rather than littering on campus. The custodian is finding a lot of trash in the student parking lot and around the campus. It takes all of us to keep our campus clean, please help!
Association of Washington Business Manufacturing Week Tour Coming to WST 10/4
Manufacturing Week 2021
October 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - October 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Doubling the Manufacturing Sector by 2031
How do we get there?
This annual event raises awareness of the role manufacturing plays in Washington state, supports the successful growth of our state’s manufacturing sector, and also gives us the opportunity to spotlight some of our state’s manufacturers who are contributing to their communities and the state economy in innovative and impactful ways.
AWB’s Manufacturing Week will shine a spotlight on Washington’s makers, highlight the importance of manufacturing to the state’s economic recovery and call attention to ways policy makers and others can support manufacturers. Challenges facing manufacturing include a complex regulatory environment, relatively high taxes and a skills gap making it difficult to find qualified workers. This is all on top of the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus.
