Dear Washington County School Community:
In the continued wake of the most recent school shooting in Florida, we have heavy hearts full of sympathies, sorrowfulness, and even, fury. Like most of you, our attempts to fathom the mindless and senseless loss of innocent lives is confounding at best. Our schools and school communities should be havens of safety void of unnecessary distress, fear and anxiety. Conversely, our schools should be places of remarkable student learning and engaging leadership development opportunities for all. That remains our expectation.
