SDOW Closed Through April 3

School District of Washington Closed Through April 3
Posted on 03/16/2020
SDOW LogoIn cooperation and under the recommendation from the Franklin County Health Department, government officials and school superintendents, the School District of Washington will be closed beyond spring break through a preliminary date of April 3, 2020. We will reassess the situation at that time.

This action is necessary to help ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff, and to do our part in trying to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 throughout our region. ‚Äč

All school activities, including athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, will be canceled during the time schools are closed.

The decision to close our school districts was extremely difficult, made in consultation with all area Superintendents and out of an abundance of caution for our families.

Later this week, parents, guardians, students and staff can expect further information detailing our alternative methods of instruction while students are home, meal options for families that may include grab and go services, and other information that pertains to the well-being of our students and community.

We must all pull together, doing our part as recommended to flatten the curve and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Take good care and look for additional information later this week. Thank you.

Dr. Lori VanLeer
Superintendent of Schools
