Washtucna School District

Making a Difference



    2 Hour Delay

    Thursday, January 19, 2017

    No Ritzville Practice

     Due to the atypical weather conditions that we've been experiencing this winter, our school district has had a number of "late start" days and two closures as of today.  The result of these atypical conditions is that the roads throughout our busing area have been unsafe to traverse. 

    The Washtucna School District holds safety as our primary priority.  We will continue to be committed to transporting Our students safely and securely to and from school each day.  Communication between our school district, the Department of Transportation and their road workers and staff within living within the surrounding area of our district as well as nearby school districts is essential to arriving at a well informed decision in regards to these delays or closures.

    Our Transportation Supervisor as well, checks the roads we travel in the early morning to get a sense of the road conditions up close.  The Washtucna School District wants you to know that our final decisions are well informed decisions and again, are made with the safety of all in mind.  In weather such as today, we will always honor the parents decision to keep their child home if they believe the conditions are not suitable for safe travel.  Please keep our school district and your bus drivers updated with your most recent phone numbers. If you are not receiving our instant messaging system notices, please contact Shauna Miller at 509-646-3237 so that we can make sure that this mode of communication is in working order for you.  If you have any questions or concerns about the bus routes we travel, you can contact Thomas Hays at 509-378-2062.  Again, these decisions are not easy decisions to make, but be certain that they are being made with the safety of our students, staff and parents in mind.
