We are deeply saddened to share the news that one of our students, Alana Williams, died tragically over the weekend. Alana was a senior who was excitedly preparing to graduate next month. She was an outstanding student with many friends. She was dearly loved by so many in our community. On behalf of all the WHS Staff, we would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to Alana's family and classmates. This news is devastating for us all. Additional counselors are on site today to help any students or staff who may need someone to talk to during this difficult time. Please support one another and know that it’s ok to ask for help if you are hurting. We each deal with grief and loss differently. Sincerely, Judy Marcus Principal, Washington High School
