This is to inform you of the School Districts Pesticide Usage Plan on school property.
Each year this letter will be posted on the website and updated as needed as the rules and regulations change regarding pesticide notification and usage,
1. The District will post at the office and in the main entrance of the school, notification of the intent to use pesticides 48 hours prior to applications inside or on the grounds of District property.
2. The District will post at all entrances to areas treated, the pesticide name and the pest to be treated, a contact person, phone number, date and time the pesticide was applied. This notification will remain posted for a period of 24 hours after application is completed.
3. For EMERGENCY applications, such as wasps or ant infestation the District will make an immediate application for safety reasons and then post as mentioned above leaving the notice up for 24 hours.
4. The District will provide a list of pesticides used for parent/guardian information upon request. This is located in the District office.
5. The District will provide a form to fill out to any concerned parent/guardian who wishes to be notified before and planned pesticide applications are made. This will not apply to emergency applications as it must be done right away for safety reasons but will be posted for 24 hours after application.
6. The District does not list or notify for the use of cleaning products used in everyday cleaning. Although these are all approved cleaning agents they do kill germs which make them a pesticide. All cleaning agent labels are read and used in accordance to label information by the District's employees.

Dear Parents/Guardians of Washtucna Students-
We hope this fall is finding you well and ready for the changes in weather that have already started. As many of you know we are having parent teacher conferences on Thursday, November 5th, from 3:15-6:00 PM at the school. Our mission as a school is to provide individualized education and connections for every student and family. Our conferences are a very important part of the individualized education and connection process. Our goal is 100% family participation in conferences this fall.
Teachers will be reaching out to you, if they have not already, to schedule a time with you and your student to talk about their educational progress and their goals for this year. Please do your best to make time to attend conferences during this time frame. In order to limit the number of contacts please do your best to bring only family members that are essential to the conferences (parents/guardians and actual students). Masks WILL BE REQUIRED to enter the building. We will be happy to provide a mask for you if you do not have one or forget to pack yours. If you can not attend, or do not feel comfortable attending, in person conferences on November 5th from 3:15-6:00 please reach out to your teacher to schedule a time that works for all involved. Do your best to schedule it during the week of November 2nd-6th as this is the first week of the new quarter and we want to start strong.
We know that you are your student's primary educator and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you to help them take the next steps in their educational journey. We have adopted the phrase "no stoplights, no limits" this year. No stop lights means that we pride ourselves in the strong connections and relationships that are present in small, no stop light, towns. No limits means that the education they receive here will place no limits on what they can accomplish with their futures. Washtucna alumni have gone on to be published authors, professional athletes, and have even worked on the current world's fastest commercially available car! We want that tradition to continue and our partnership with you is a huge part of the process. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening to celebrate the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year and plan for the next three quarters.

Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children may be eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.
P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades k-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is used like a debit card to buy groceries.
If your family has lost income since schools closed, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.
Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT – it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test. P-EBT is intended to replace meals missed while schools closed due to COVID-19. Children are allowed to get free meals from school and community sites and get P-EBT at the same time – they are separate programs.
If your family does not receive Basic Food, you must apply for P-EBT if you want to receive the funds. The application will be open by June 30. There are two ways to apply:
See the attached flyer for more information about P-EBT.
We want to make sure all of our students stay healthy and grow strong.
