The Washington Little Rockets Weekly Newsletter

Week of October 3rd - October 7th, 2016

Little Rockets News!

Dear Families,

Yippee! Our road construction is finally complete! We appreciate everyone's patience through this process. We are still waiting on finalization of our landscaping along Franklin Ave, so there will be a time when we need to be watchful of this work.


Beginning on Monday, our school buses will be using the BUS LANE in our parking lot as the loading zone. We ask that pedestrians DO NOT walk between buses. Please use the walk zone in the middle of the parking lot, or walk towards the Franklin Ave. sidewalk to access the school doors.


As always, please be sure to hold hands and keep careful watch of children in and around the parking lot.


Thank you and have a great week!

Mrs. Stacie Nelson, Principal

Please mark your calendars!
