Please help me celebrate Amara Farah in receiving the Washington State 2020 Prevention Award of Excellence in Youth Leadership. Amara is resilient, hard working, grounded in her values, and gives us the gift of kindness (among many other talents and strengths). We are not surprised that Amara has received this award; she is an amazing leader and we can't wait to see what her future holds. Thank you Amara for your kindness, leadership and efforts to promote change and positivity in our community! We are better because of YOU!

Conference Week: October 26-30

Conference Week: October 26-30

Our annual fall conferences will be held virtually October 26-30. The schedule may look a little different from years past. Our goal was to keep synchronous (live zoom sessions) in the afternoon. This is an opportunity to connect with your teachers, request support, celebrate successes, and set goals...I encourage you all to set up a time to meet.

**There will be NO in-person learning during Conference Week

Important Meal Information

Free/Reduced Application for 2020-2021

Families who wish to receive or continue receiving free or reduced price meals during the 2020-21 school year must submit a new Free & Reduced Meal Application each school year by the 30th day of school. For this year, October 15th is the 30th day of the school year. Currently, all meals are FREE for all children 18 years old and under. However, starting in January any students receiving free or reduced meals on a carry over from 2019-2020, who have not turned in a new form, will be charged full price. Families with questions about their application or who need assistance should contact Julie Ferguson at the District Office, 360-954-3053. Please read the letter to households and the consent to share eligibility form which are part of the file linked here to apply. You can fill out your forms online or turn them into Julie at the District Office.

Take-out Meals During All-Distance Learning

In case you haven't heard, we have changed to a scratch cooking model of food preparation and we need your help in carrying out our mission of making delicious and nutritious meals accessible to all WSD students. During distance learning, meals can be picked up at one of our “take out” schools; Hathaway Elementary School, Gause Elementary School, and Cape Horn-Skye/Canyon Creek. Meal Pickup during distance learning will be twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays with two meal pickup times to work for your schedule 11:00am – 1:00pm or 4:00pm – 6:00pm. You can pick up all of your students' meals at one location to make it as convenient for you as possible. We hope your student enjoys this amazing new meal program.

Need Internet Support?

Internet Service or Hotspots for Students

The district is gathering names of students and families who need internet access to support their impactED online learning. There are two ways the district may be able to provide internet access, including a CARES Act-funded program to subsidize the cost of cable internet, DSL or other providers; and a district-funded option that would be delivered to individual families via a “hotspot,” or mobile internet connectivity device. If your family wishes to be contacted about these programs, please use the survey to let us know. We will ask for your location and contact information.

Depending on demand, the district will be able to provide internet-capable devices (i.e., tablets) for families with students who qualify for free and reduced price meals, students experiencing homelessness and others with a demonstrated need.

Washougal School District has a new and better way of communicating with families. Please make sure that you get signed up for ParentSquare. Click on the link below to get signed up if you haven't yet. We will be using ParentSquare primarily as our form of communication.
