As reflected in the Wahkiakum School District Vision Statement, student safety is one of our District's primary goals.

Learning is the mutual responsibility of the student, staff, and the parents. The goals of this vision are:

  • To provide and maintain a positive school environment that enhances the learning experience for students.
  • To create, model, and maintain a school climate that develops acceptable social interaction and behavior.
  • To provide an equal education opportunity for all.
  • To incorporate technology into the educational environment to assist in meeting educational goals.

Mental Health Awareness: Resources for Continuing the Discussion

In May/2017, several Wahkiakum High School Clubs joined together with the support of Wahkiakum Health and Human Services to learn about and educate students about a variety of mental health issues.

Around that same time, there was also lots of discussion on social media about a popular Netflix series called 13 Reasons Why.

Learn more about WHS Awareness Week, the 13 Reasons Why Netflix series, and links to a variety of resources to help students, parents and educators continue the discussion of topics addressed during Awareness Week and in the Netflix series.

Internet and Technology Safety - Resources for Parents, Guardians and Family Members

There are always lots of questions about kids and technology. One of the most important things to remember is simply to talk to the young people. If you are a parent, guardian, family member or an adult who interacts with youth, you are invited open the dialog about using technology and the internet safely. Ask questions. Show an interest. Talk! Then, listen.
