Building Use

  • Looking for a space for an upcoming event or gathering?

    WDMCS is proud to make district buildings available to the community when they are not in use by school activities. Community groups regularly use the eight elementary schools, two junior highs, and two high school buildings, as well as the homeschool program building, alternative high school building, administrative building, stadium, and Tiger Field.
