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.

Information Regarding Snow Make Up Days

Meridian Community,

State law requires schools to be in session for 180 days per year.  If schools are closed, the days missed must be made up. Therefore, the make-up days for the school closures that occured on December 12 and 13 will occur on June 16 and 19.  June 19th (the new last day of school) will be an early release day. June 15th now becomes a regular day and is no longer an early release day. Please plan accordingly.

If future closures occur they would be made up on June 20 and thereafter.

The School Board will set the date of the MHS graduation ceremony in March after we see if there are any more closures that could affect the school calendar.

If you have any questions, please contact me at


A new, revised school calendar is attached below.
