Inclement Weather Memo

As the cold temperatures make their way into the Treasure Valley, please send your child(ren) to school prepared for the cold and snowy weather. If your child needs certain winter gear to stay warm this season, please be sure to contact our counselor, Mr. Dallolio. We also appreciate drivers being mindful of slick and icy roads as we want everyone to be safe as they walk to/from school. Included is the 19-20 Inclement Weather Memo from the Boise School District.

PTA Update: Support our Community Schools this Holiday Season

The Washington PTA will be hosting a pajama drive to support families accessing the Community School at Garfield Elementary School. Families can donate new pajamas in a similar size to their own kids, and there will be a box at the front office for pajamas to be dropped off. Black Friday is a great time to find awesome prices on pajamas! As always, Washington families in need will also be supported. PJs will be accepted through December 11th at 3pm.
