Hello WMS Demon Families, Thank you for your patience and responsiveness today during the unusual events. We care about our students and their safety. We want our students to be here at school. With that being said, due to the transportation issues caused by coronavirus, our heating systems being installed are not able to be activated yet. We WILL be having school on Thursday. Please be sure your student is dressed more warmly than usual and in layers. The temperature in each room varies. We will be learning and growing our brains, but with a few more clothes on than usual! Thank you for your assistance. Best, Katy Kennedy Principal Washington Middle School

GPS will be canceling school for the remainder of the day. Please come and get your student from the schools or make arrangements for them to be picked up. Please be safe on the roads. We want to make sure that everyone is safe during this crazy time. Status of the buildings right now: We do not have water at JES and we still have power down at all of the buildings. The High School does have a backup generator that they are currently on. We do not feel the power will be back on before lunch time to feed our students. Our communication systems are not working well right now either.
We wanted to get this message out to you as soon as possible. At this point, we are still having school, but as of now, we have all 4 buildings without power because of downed power lines. The situation is being worked on and we should have more information soon. Please make sure you are checking your messages as we will be sending updates out soon. If we can’t get some things situated, we might have to cancel school for the remainder of the day. This decision will be made in the next 45 to 90 mins.
