Principal's Message

Dear Washington High School Parents and Community Members,

I am looking forward to the 2022-2023 school year. 

The first day of school is August 17 and is a minimum day ending at 12:57 pm. All school days begin at 8:30 am and end at 3:30 pm, except Tuesdays which start at 8:30 and end at 2:30 pm. Please use the link to view the complete Bell Schedule for the 22-23 school year. 

MAZE day for 9th grade students will include a Link Crew station that will include a tour of the campus.  After each tour, students will participate in community building exercises led by members of the Peer Advocate class. 

At Washington High School we are committed to teaching students the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century, with one of the primary skills being technological literacy.  Our goal is ultimately to have a 1:1 ratio of computers to students. We are getting closer to this goal, and this past year we were able to acquire several additional class sets of laptop computers.   

As many of you are aware, Washington added a new scoreboard to the gym last year, and we now have perfect sightlines from every seat in the gym. Eighty percent of the lockers on the Washington campus have been newly installed within the past five years. The theater is now complete and we are in the process of purchasing lighting and sound equipment. We are creating a Maker Space in room 63 and we are working on improving the functionality of the cafeteria, as this is where the community gathers for meetings and concerts.

We will continue to make these types of investments in the facilities at Washington High School, but we need your help.

We are requesting voluntary monetary donations.  Any amount would be appreciated.  The donation can be made to a specific program or to the general facilities fund.  As you consider a donation, remember many employers have a Matching Donation program.  These programs are set up so employers can match their employee’s donations.  If your company requests a tax ID number, we will be happy to provide the number for you.

Any donor who gives a gift of $100.00 or more will receive a WHS T-shirt.  A receipt for your donation will be provided, upon request, for tax purposes through our Account Clerk.   Checks can be made out to “FUSD Washington High School”.  Please specify what area you would like to donate to (see the list on the back of this letter).  Donations will be collected at MAZE, can be made as a part of the online ordering process, or can be dropped off in the main office. 

Improving the facilities at Washington High School is an act that reflects our commitment to our students. The Washington community has always done an exemplary job of recognizing this truth. We thank you for your continued support in all its various forms.
