Mrs. Thompson, who has served as the nurse at Washington High, has taken a new job outside the school system. Her last day was May 12, 2017.
Unfortunately, there are few nurse substitutes in the county. We did have a sub on Monday and are scheduled for sub on Friday and again on May 22 and May 31st.
On the days we do not have a full day sub nurse, we will have nurse coverage from 11:15 until 1:00 thanks to the other school nurses in the county who are assisting us.
Students who become ill during the school day when a nurse is not available will have the opportunity to call home to be picked up by a parent. In an emergency situation requiring medical attention beyond what school employees can provide, we will call 911 as we have in the past.
We appreciate the patience of our students and our parents.
The French Club and French Honor Society at WHS recently presented a donation of $150 to the Mt. Zion soup kitchen. The money was raised
by the group at Washington High School as one of their service projects.

Attention High School Athletes Interested in Participating in NCAA Sports: New rules will be implemented by the NCAA for student-athletes planning to participate in Division I or Division II athletics at the college level. The NCAA determines a college student-athlete's eligibility. It is the student's and the parent's/guardian's responsibility to check with the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and their post-secondary institution before completing or adjusting the student's schedule. The NCAA currently only accepts college preparatory classes and above. If a student-athlete wishes to participate in collegiate sports, the student and parent are advised to meet with the school counselor.
