To improve communication with parents, guardians and students, Washington County School District Technology expanded its ability to deliver phone, email and SMS text messages using SchoolMessenger. SchoolMessenger will be used to communicate in emergency situations as well as inform parents of day to day progress and school events.
We invite you to fully participate in the process by opting in to SMS Text messaging and keeping contact information in PowerSchool up to date. Just complete two simple steps:
- Opt in to SMS Messaging by sending the word Yes, via text message, to the number 68453. SchoolMessenger will only send text messages to cell phone numbers whose recipients have agreed to receive them.
- Make sure you contact information is up to date by logging in to your PowerSchool Account and accessing the Demographics Change Page.

Once a month Hurricane Elementary provides parents with a behind the scenes look at the school and the programs their children participate in. They call it Parents In Education or P.I.E. Parents have the opportunity to have a close up look at the dual-immersion Spanish program, STEM, pre-kindergarten, and Lego League. As the morning comes to an end, notes are reviewed and additional questions asked, the school serves pie (and sometimes cheesecake) to the parents who attend their P.I.E. day.

The students and community at Dixie Sun Elementary were able to travel to six different countries without even leaving their school. It was part of the fun and food of the inaugural Hispanic Culture Night at the school. The evening included singing, dancing, food, arts, crafts and games…did we mention food?! It was a great night and well supported by the community. Check out more photos on our Facebook page.
