Principal’s Message

Mr. Marquez and grandbaby
Dear WAAST families, 
My name is Ricardo Marquez and I am honored to be in my third year as your WAAST school principal.  It is my hope that as you read this message that your family is well and taking care of one another during this difficult time.  I am encouraged by the level of commitment that our students/families have shown up to this point with Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL).   I want to acknowledge that our staff will continue to provide an excellent education through remote learning.  We are learning together during these difficult times and it is important for you to know that we are still required to deliver standard-based education that will support students academic skills and  social emotional development. 
We are launching a new look for our school website and our hope is to regularly update our pages with school information that can keep you informed about CDL. I personally want to invite all new families to Woodburn High School, you are now officially a Woodburn Bulldog.   I also look forward to continue to work with returning families and I patiently wait for the day when we all return to the Woodburn Campus.   I miss seeing you all and wish you all the best. If you want to communicate with me I can be reached via email at   Please be safe and take care.
Ricardo Marquez 
WAAST School Principal
