Change in Policy for MHS Weight Room – The Meridian High School weight room is provided by the District for the education and instruction of District students.  Based on guidance from the Washington Risk Management Pool (the District’s insurance provider) the weight room will henceforth be available only to Meridian School District employees and current students.   Members of the public and former students who wish to use District facilities must submit a facility use application to rent the facilities when not in use by students.  However, facility rental of the weight room will not be allowed due the high risk nature of the equipment and potential liability risk to the District.

Meridian Community,

Please see the attachment below for the 2017-2018 school calendar.  The School Board adopted the calendar at their meeting on March 8, 2017.

The District surveyed the community and staff regarding the concept of providing a 30 minute late start one day each week in order to provide District teachers and administrators with a weekly opportunity for collaborative planning, examining student achievement data and engaging in professional training.   485 people responded to the survey.  Thank you for such a great response!

The District has decided to wait until the 2018-2019 school year to implement this change.  During the 2017-2018 school year the District will provide additional opportunities for community and staff engagement in dialogue regarding this change.

Please contact me at or at 398-7111 if you would like more information or if you have questions regarding this decision.


Tom Churchill, Superintendent
