West Washington Schools To Close Next Week

West Washington Schools To Close Next Week


West Washington School Corporation has announced this afternoon that the school will be closed the week of March 16 and will reopen the week after spring break on Monday, March 30. 

A decision about future closures will be communicated immediately following the decision being made.

Information about remote learning will be shared on Monday morning.

Students can check their Google Classrooms for updates, assignments, and activities.

Anyone requesting alternate/non-digital assignments can contact the school office that your child attends.

  • The West Washington Elementary School number is 812-755-4934.
  • The West Washington Jr/Sr High School number is 812-755-4996.

WWSC will provide food service to those that call and request it.

“We are not sure exactly what this will look like yet,” Nance wrote in a Facebook post. “You may call the Superintendent’s Office on Monday to be added on a list. More details will follow about food service.”

The Superintendent’s Office number is 812-755-4872.

Nance said Food service will not be provided over the scheduled Spring Break.

Nance wanted to make sure the public knew there was no communication or guidance from the federal, state or local levels to cancel school.

No information from the Governor’s memo or CDC had changed since 3/12/20.

“The leadership team and school board made the decision after collecting all relevant data and waiting for the officials that are charged with public health and safety to make a determination,” noted Nance. “That determination never came. Therefore, we made a decision to err on the side of caution.”

All three Washington County School Superintendents met earlier Friday with the Washington County Health Department and Salem and Eastern Schools moved to make closures earlier in the day.
