The Washington Community School District is not affected by a federal recall of Whitco Company LP stadium light polls that can fracture or crack and fall over. Superintendent Dr. Mike Jorgensen says the district has researched the manufacturers of its stadium equipment, and all light poles are safe. The Knoxville school system was affected by the recall, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission says at this time eleven Whitco stadium poles have fallen across the country.
