Dear White Salmon Valley Families,
One of our priorities at WSVSD is to communicate regularly with families and give you time to plan in the event of schedule changes.
I’m writing today to share information about an adjustment to the school schedule in the second week of November. This year, Veteran’s Day (a recognized school holiday) falls on a Thursday. We have received feedback that many people in our community plan to take the Friday after Veteran’s Day (November 12) off from work or school.
In an effort to plan ahead and avoid disruptions to families, the board has voted to close school on Friday, November 12, 2021, using a planned snow day (March 18, 2022) in our calendar (we have 3 planned inclement weather days built into our school schedule each year).
I understand this is a change in plans and we apologize for any inconvenience this schedule adjustment may create. After lots of discussion, we concluded that it makes the most sense and would cause the least amount of disruption to close school on Friday, November 12.
Questions may be directed to the district office staff.
Dr. Sean D. McGeeney
