• 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.

Indoor Hitting Facility PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, October 29 2009 09:57

The Washington County Riverboat Foundation awarded the Washington Community School District a $78,000 grant for an Indoor Hitting Facility during the spring of 2009.

This facility allows the High School Baseball and Softball teams a place to work out in the winter months and during weather that prohibits them from practicing outdoors during the season.  The facility has 3 batting cages with 2 pitching machines and an open area for hitting stations.  The facility also includes indoor restrooms, which will be used during games and practices.

The Washington Area Softball & Baseball youth teams will also utilize the Indoor Hitting Facility.  Having a facility where the younger kids can work on their skills year round only improves their confidence and the high school programs in the future. This facility was made possible with a $78,835 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation.
