During the summer Washington-Nile LSD applied through the Office of Child Nutrition and Ohio Department of Education for our students to receive free breakfast and free lunches for the 2017-2018 school year. We just received great news, we were approved.
This does not include ala carte items.
Clothing, shoes, school supplies, and sundries are available for free to district students that may need some help with getting prepared for the new school year. Parents are invited to visit WestMart. Staff will be available during Open House to assist you with your school supply and clothing needs. WestMart is located at the elementary.
Students enrolling in Washington-Nile LSD for the 2017-18 school year that have Type 1 Diabetes must provide new doctor's orders to the school prior to attending the school year. Students must also provide all supplies required before they will be able to attend classes. This includes: glucometer, meter strips, insulin, glucophage, syringes/needle tips, insulin pump supplies if applicable, alcohol swabs, low supplies-glucose tablets, juices, starburst, skittles, fruit snacks, or any other item the parent chooses to send. The "kit" must stay in the nurses office. This is a state law requirement for the safety of your child. See your child's doctor for the new order to provide the school. Both the doctor's order and the "diabetes kit" must be turned into the school nurse before the student will be permitted to attend classes in the 2017-18 school year.

The PWHS Vocal Music Department will be presenting “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts at Shawnee State University on Mother’s Day Weekend, May 12, 13, and 14. The show is a musical comedy that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize. It is a satire of big business and all it holds sacred. J. Pierrepont Finch (Will Bentley) uses a handbook called How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from the window washer to top executive. The comedy and antics prevail throughout the musical as he weaves a web through the entire staff of the World Wide Wicket Company.
Lead Roles include:
