Principal's Message


Dear Washington High School Parents and Community Members,

We will be back to in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year and I am looking forward to seeing students in person again.  To start the school year, all students and staff will be required to wear masks while on campus. Also, all students will be asked to complete a home-based screening before the start of school each day. For more information please read the Fremont Unified School District’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

MAZE day for 9th and 10th-grade students will include a Link Crew station from which students will be taken on a tour of the campus. After each tour, students on the tour will participate in community building exercises led by a Senior from the Peer Advocate class. 

The first day of school is August 18 and will be a minimum day. The school day will start at 8:30 and will end at 1:03 pm. Most school days, except Tuesdays, will begin at 8:30 and will end at 3:30 pm. Tuesdays will begin at 8:30 and will end at 2:30 pm. Please use the link to view the complete Bell Schedule for the 2021-2022 school year. 

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.   The theater is very close to being complete and I am looking forward to opening night this fall. 

As many of you are aware, we replaced the old scoreboard in the gym with two new scoreboards. This summer we added one more scoreboard and we now have perfect sightlines from every seat in the gym. This spring we replaced the lockers in the 50’s wing. Eighty percent of the lockers on the Washington campus have been newly installed within the past four years. Currently, Washington is 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 Husky Strong 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.

 

Sincerely, 

Bob Moran

Principal
