WWCS COVID-19 Case Chart
Dear Walla Walla Catholic School families,
Spring is here, and students are taking advantage of the warm weather with outdoor lunches, sports, and many other activities! Even though there have been many positives things regarding COVID-19 lately, our school protocols remain in place and we are still adhering strictly to them as we approach the end of the school year. This means that mask-wearing is still mandatory for all teachers and staff, and for all in attendance at school events. This also means that daily health screenings will continue, and that students should stay home from school if exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms. It is vital that we continue to stay vigilant and do our part to avoid moving back into Phase 2. Thank you for your cooperation and continued companionship as move into the final months of this challenging year.
Important Note About Final Week of School
Because we made up some extra days over the course of the school year by removing days from break and adding days during conferences, the last day of school has been moved from the original date of June 15 to June 11 instead. This decision was made with guidance from the OSPI. We will meet the 180-day requirement for the year and the hour requirement for schools by June 11.
For Assumption students, June 11 will be a half-day.
DeSales students will have finals from June 9-11, and Monday, June 14 will be set aside for any necessary makeup work at DeSales.
Senior graduation will be held on Sunday, June 6. We will communicate more details about that event soon!
Dates From 2021-22 Academic Calendar
We are still putting the finishing touches on the 2021-22 Academic Calendar, and will release a PDF copy of that soon. We know that the first day of school will be Monday, August 23, 2021, and the last day of school will be Thursday, June 9, 2022
We invite you to join us this Friday, May 1, at 8:30 a.m., for the tradition of May Crowning in the Assumption parking lot.
We ask that you remain in your vehicles and tune into 90.7 to pray with us to honor Our Patroness, Mary, Assumed into Heaven.

Holy Hour Update
Wednesdays at 4:00 PM - St. Patrick Church
The WWCS Wednesday Holy Hour has now moved to St. Patrick Church at 4:00 PM. Even though this remains a Walla Walla Catholic Schools event, it is still open to the community and we hope that you will join us in prayer!
Assumption Donation to AHA
In February our Assumption students participated in the Jump Rope for Heart program supporting the American Heart Association. Together, our students raised over $1,800! Hugh Doohan was our lead fundraiser raising $469.05, with Ben Kimble as our runner up raising $367.86. We are proud of all students who participated in this program!
2nd grader Ben Kimble, was one of our top fundraisers!
Our Local Heart Heroes
Hugh Doohan - 3rd Grade:
The American Heart Association is important to Hugh and the Doohan family because Hugh was born from a heart defect that was nearly lethal. When he was born, Hugh was also blind from lack of oxygen. A special shout out to Hugh for being the top fundraiser for the
Jump Rope for Heart program!
Hunter Smith - 3rd Grade:
Hunter was born with a congenital heart defect called Transposition of the Greater Vessels. His heart formed backwards, if you can believe that! Hunter had a surgery at just 4 days old to correct it. Now his heart works perfectly! Hunter can be found practicing karate and playing with his classmates or with his sister, Quincy.
