Dear Parents and Students,
As Superintendent of Washington County School District, I am very excited for the start of another successful school year and welcome back the many new and returning students and staff at each of our schools.
We’ve just completed our centennial celebration for the District and as we move into our 101st year, please remember these are pivotal times in the history of our community and nation. I encourage you to find ways to become involved in your schools and community. There are many extra-curricular activities offered at our schools. Research shows the connection between student academic achievement and positive character development gained through the association with these teams, clubs and activities.
Washington County School District was recently featured on the Zions Bank “Speaking on Business” news segment. The 90 second informational piece, played on dozens of radio stations throughout Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona highlighted the many successes the District has seen as we prepare to start our 101st year.

To improve communication with parents, guardians and students, Washington County School District Technology expanded its ability to deliver phone, email and SMS text messages using SchoolMessenger. SchoolMessenger will be used to communicate in emergency situations as well as inform parents of day to day progress and school events.
We invite you to fully participate in the process by opting in to SMS Text messaging and keeping contact information in PowerSchool up to date. Just complete two simple steps:
