Superintendent's Update - November 29, 2021

Good Morning Washington Local,

Welcome back! We are just 17 days away from hitting the halfway mark in our school year!  We hope your Thanksgiving holiday included time to enjoy your family and also a time to rest.

We are embarking on the winter sports season and our goal is that this is a full winter season for the first time in three years. We are strongly encouraging all guests at sporting events to wear masks and certainly asking you to stay home if you are not feeling well. Our student-athletes really want a full season and the best way to protect everyone is to stay healthy. Attending sporting events is a choice. Unlike school attendance, students and fans can choose to attend. We will not require masks at indoor events unless there is an increase in positive cases that compels us to do so. Please plan accordingly.

Next Monday night, December 6, we will kick off live music concerts at Music Night Under the Stadium Lights at 6:30 PM in Whitmer Stadium. We hope you will join us for a sing-a-long and hot cocoa sponsored by the Washington Local Schools Foundation. You'll definitely leave in the holiday spirit! Check the website for a lineup of concerts over the weeks leading up to Winter Break. We will continue to require masks at all indoor concerts until further notice.

Last night Hanukkah began--the Festival of Lights. In these days ahead, let's all remember that it takes just a little bit of light to dispel a lot of darkness.

Every Student Matters; Every Moment Counts!

Superintendent's Update - November 15, 2021

Good Morning Washington Local Families,

That first snow is always so pretty! I guess there is no denying that winter weather is upon us. Winter weather also means a lot more indoor activities. On Friday, we announced that we are back to universal masking after a short trial without masks. It was clear in this short time that masks do a good job preventing outbreaks at school. As before, if your child is exposed at school to a positive case, they may remain in school as long as they do not have symptoms. Wearing masks will also keep our community healthier as we head into the holidays.

This week, we have changed our COVID reporting to reflect the number of quarantined students from a “home” exposure versus a “school” exposure. This statistic points out how rapidly our numbers changed when we unmasked as compared to previous weeks. This report is posted every Monday by noon and reflects the previous week’s cases.  We want everyone to be able to spend time with loved ones over the Thanksgiving Break. Our goal is to have a fully in-person school year! Let's stay healthy.

Congratulations to our football team on an amazing season! They made us proud both on and off the field! So much goes into Friday Night Lights beyond just football. Our student section won the BCSN Student Section of the Year! The competition among schools is very tough, but beyond the school spirit, BCSN recognized the character our student section showed week in and week out. Our band is second to none and our cheerleaders kept the crowd cheering and on their feet even in driving wind, rain, and sleet. What a season! Congratulations to all fall sports teams and the exemplary way you represented Panther Nation!

This Friday, we will proudly recognize 32 works of art accepted into the FOCUS show. You can see our students' amazing talent on display at the University of Toledo Fine Arts Center through December 10. Congratulations to all!
