The Mary Walker School District does not tolerate or condone Threatening, Violent, or Harassing Language in social media posts or any other communication.
Recently, we have experienced several incidents of threatening and hostile social media posts involving students, families and staff of the Mary Walker School District. All such communication, in any form, whether direct or indirect, will be promptly reported to law enforcement. Students who engage in such communication will be subject to disciplinary action. Family members engaging in such communication will be asked to cease, and if such communication continues they will be subject to a trespass order barring them from our facilities. Our commitment is to have a climate of physical and emotional safety for all persons. We hope that commitment is shared by our entire community.
Safety Concern Update:
(Friday, March 23, 2018; 1:15pm)
Several weeks ago, an allegation of a “hitlist” was brought up and was investigated. That situation was resolved, but then it resurfaced again this week. The matter was investigated again and brought to a conclusion.
Later, due to irrational fears - social media was used in a negative way to create a hysteria around Mary Walker School District. Law enforcement became involved and found there was no threat to the District.
It is true that our Nation is going through some difficult times in regards to school safety and we all should work diligently to support each other to create a culture of peace and goodwill…not a culture of fear and hysteria.
We are excited to be back at school today and we should move on with a great sense of relief - but we must continue to be vigilant and caring about our surroundings and about our “neighbor.” Let’s enjoy this day and our upcoming weekend with great hope and vigor . . . spring is here!
Matt Cobb, 6-12 Principal
Safety Concern Update:
(Thursday, March 22, 2018; 12:30pm)
After working with the Stevens County Sheriffs Department and our local Springdale town law enforcement, the Mary Walker school district plans to have a regular school day tomorrow Friday, March 23rd.
We also wish to thank everyone involved - parents, students and staff members - for their efforts in helping keep all students at Mary Walker and the community of Springdale safe and protected.
Please contact Superintendent Rick Winters (email@example.com) if you have concerns or questions.
In the interest of safety, Mary Walker School District (Springdale) schools and offices will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, March 22nd.
We are located in Springdale, Washington, a rural community in the northeast part of the State. In addition to Springdale Preschool (traditional and ECEAP), our district consists of six (6) traditional and Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) schools: Springdale Elementary (K-5), Springdale Middle School (6-8), Mary Walker High School (9-12), Mary Walker Alternative High School (9-12), Mary Walker Promise (K-12) and Springdale Academy (K-12).
Prepare all students for learning at the post-secondary level.
Message from our Superintendent
Every school year is a chance to begin a fresh start, with new goals, high expectations and wonderful plans for the future. Together I hope we will improve instruction, increase student learning, develop a pleasant environment and have a safe school year.
Our Schools are committed to helping all children develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to achieving individual satisfaction and to becoming responsible, contributing citizens. The District promotes the development of intellectual, physical and creative competencies and skills of all students to reach their highest potential.
As superintendent, my vision is that every member of this district have access to resources that will provide the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skill and ability to achieve the level of success each member desires, in the endeavor they choose to pursue. Our goals, expectations and initiatives are designed to facilitate the achievement of that endeavor for each of us.
A caring and collaborative professional environment, high quality leadership, curriculum and goal alignment, focused intentional instruction with comprehensive data analysis of teaching and learning will prove most important in assisting us to continually meet the obligations of meeting today’s challenges.
As superintendent, I will promote and facilitate goal alignment within the admin team and attempt to relay to the staff proper communication for continued success in meeting the needs of all of our students.
