In an effort to stay in contact with students and parents, the Washington County School District is joining the world of social networking.

Dawn Pettus, community education director for the district, has announced that the school system has a presence on the popular social networking Web site, Facebook.
Pettus said the site is being used to find even more ways to be in touch with the students, parents, and even faculty of the school system.
“It’s just another way to get information out there,” Pettus said. “We have a goal of 500 fans for the page by the end of the year.”
To visit the site, go to www.facebook.com on the Internet and type in Washington County Schools in the search field at the top of the page.
