  • Harassment, Intimidation, & Bullying (HIB)

    We recognize that bullying is a problem that can happen anywhere despite education and prevention efforts. We ask you to partner with us to address bullying and to ensure that our schools are safe and positive places for growing and learning.

    "Harassment, intimidation, or bullying" means any intentional electronic, written, verbal, or physical act that:

    • Physically harms a student or damages the student's property; or
    • Has the effect of substantially interfering with a student's education; or
    • Is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
    • Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.

    If you see someone being bullied, tell someone you trust. You can report bullying to any school staff member, the School Compliance Officer, or the District Compliance Officer. Reports can be filed anonymously. Each school office has incident reporting forms. Incident reporting forms are also available under the Reporting section of this webpage.

  • Whooping Cough (Pertussis)

    Whooping cough (pertussis) is currently an epidemic in Washington. This means we’re seeing many more people sick with this disease than usual. Whooping cough can cause hospitalization and even death for young babies. Older kids, teens, and adults often spread the disease to babies. This is a serious situation.

    Whooping cough spreads very easily by coughing and sneezing. It begins with cold-like symptoms and develops into a bad cough. Coughing spells can be severe, sometimes ending in gagging or vomiting. Some kids also may have a high-pitched “whoop” after they cough, which is how the disease got its common name (although infants may not cough at all, and some teens and adults don’t have a “whoop” after they cough).

    Adults and children may catch whooping cough and spread it to others, even if they were already vaccinated because the vaccine wears off over time.

  • Wilson Middle School ASB/Leadership School Preparation Days

    Posted by Gané Bourgeois on 8/30/2018

    Students spent two days, before school started, to prepare Wilson for the Opening Day!
    They worked with the amazing Mr. Greg Hausske on our ropes course to emphasize communication and teambuilding.
    They tie-dyed t-shirts with our school colors and this year’ school theme, “Be Someone’s Champion”, and created posters promoting The CAVS Way.
    With the work of their Advisor, Mrs. Gruhn-Hilton, and Mr. Greg Hausske, these students helped prepare Wilson Middle School for a successful Opening Day.
