  • Bus Incident We wanted to make you aware that a bus driver confiscated a plastic look-alike knife from an elementary student at pickup near St. James. The student was waving an object in the bus line. The driver heard it was a knife in which the student proclaimed was real. The driver detained the student as he was attempting to enter the bus. Police were called because the student wouldn’t give the knife to the bus driver. It was confirmed to be a plastic look alike hunting knife. We encourage families to discuss the importance of leaving toy weapons at home. Because of how real toy weapons can appear, school personnel must take immediate action to ensure the safety of students. Safety is the top priority at all of our school buildings and we are thankful that this situation has been handled without incident.

School Messenger Notifications PDF Print E-mail
Monday, October 09 2017 08:14

Washington Schools uses a notification system called School Messenger for weather and other school alerts. Parents who have correctly entered their information into PowerSchool (usually as part of student registration) will be notified using email addresses and SMS text messages.

 

SMS messages do require each cell phone number to "opt-in" in order to receive text messages. If you have not yet replied with a Y or YES to 67587, we encourage you to do so in order to receive SMS text messages. SMS Text Opt-In Flyer

 

If you would like to customize which messages you receive, users can manage their notification preferences by clicking on the Infocenter link on the left side when logged into their Powerschool Parent Account. Please see the attached sign up letter for instructions on how to log in to School Messenger and update your notification preferences. You will need to sign up with the email address you have entered in your Powerschool Parent Account to ensure all of your students are linked to your School Messenger login.    School Messenger Sign Up Letter

 

Other individuals who would not have their information on file with the school can sign up using the following link. Again, this is not necessary for anyone already in our PowerSchool system. https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/washingtonk12ia/subscriber


Notifications will continue to be posted on our website and on local media stations as we have done in the past.

Official Release Update 10/6/17 PDF Print E-mail
Friday, October 06 2017 16:07

For​ ​Immediate​ ​Release​ ​-​ ​October​ ​6,​ ​2017
Washington​ ​Community​ ​School​ ​District​ ​and​ ​Washington​ ​Police​ ​Department

Contacts:​ ​ ​Jeff​ ​Dicks,​ ​Superintendent​ ​or​ ​Greg​ ​Goodman,​ ​Washington​ ​Police​ ​Chief

Upon further investigation conducted by local law enforcement and Washington Community School District (WCSD) officials, it has been determined that the student accused of making alleged threats involving the high school, never made the threats. Two students posted falsified information against a student of which the accused had no prior knowledge. Those who initiated the false and misleading social media posts may face further discipline and/or legal consequences.

Due to confidentiality laws, local law enforcement and WCSD staff will not share specific information about individuals involved, discipline, or legal ramifications. WCSD staff are taking appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Moving forward, the district will continue working with students and staff on appropriate usage of social media.
