School Tour

Join us for a tour of Washington High School on Saturday morning! The tour will begin promptly at 10:00am, so plan to be onsite prior to that time. We're excited to have Traci Mooney-Shaffer as our guide. Traci is a Spanish teach, instructional coach and one of the bowling coaches with a wealth of knowledge about WHS!


We will meet inside the Main Foyer! Please enter via the main entrance under the Arcade no later than 9:55 am on Saturday morning. (For those of us who are notoriously late for everything, translate that as no later than 9:30 am.) We can park along the horseshoe drive, in the faculty parking lot or the North Lot by the tennis courts. The tour will last 60-90 minutes.
