Season’s Greetings!

I hope this newsletter finds you well and anticipating the upcoming holiday season! As you know, the first semester of the school year will end on December 17, 2021. In an effort to help students navigate an admittedly difficult time of year, we will hold finals over the course of four days. By doing so, students have no more than two final-examinations to prepare for on any given day. This also allows us to expand the time available for final-examination make-up to include some time during the regular school day. A description of the exam schedule follows for your convenience.

A study session designed for the purpose of helping our students prepare for their final examinations will be offered again this year! Faculty members representing most of the core content areas (Math, Science, and English) and several teachers in elective areas will be available to help your child prepare during this time. The study session will be held in the Washburn Rural High School Cafeteria, and pizza will be provided for both students and teachers. Finals Study Night will be on Monday, December 13, 2021 from 6:00-8:00 PM. We strongly encourage you to help your child take advantage of this very important opportunity!

Winter break for students is December 18, 2021 through January 3, 2022. The second semester will begin on January 4, 2022. On behalf of the staff at WRHS, I would like to wish all of our extended Junior Blue Family a relaxing and memorable holiday break!
