Franklin Avenue Construction

Beginning on Monday, April 4th, we will have an alternate parking plan due to construction on Franklin Avenue. Please use the link below to access the map regarding available parking for drop-off and pick-up for Washington School. Please note, there will be limited space in the Washington School parking lot for NJSD parking, as city employees will be utilizing the entire back row.


The buses will have a loading zone on the south side of Columbian Street, beginning at Walnut St., which will need to be kept clear of vehicle parking. There will be a parent parking/loading zone on Columbian Street closer to Oak Street.


Arrival and dismissal procedures will remain the same as we will utilize the same doors as we have all year.


For the safety of your children, please remain clear of the construction area on Franklin Avenue if there are construction workers and machinery in the area.


Thank you for your patience and assistance as we work through this situation together!


Mrs. Stacie Nelson, Principal

Kindergarten Readiness-Summer School

Hello Families of current 4K students,


Please be reminded of the Kindergarten Readiness Academy Class that is offered for all incoming Kindergarten students this summer. This class will include some of the following skills and lessons:

  • active group participation and socialization
  • continued exposure to literature and math skills
  • fine motor skills and games

These are just a few of the areas that will be addressed in the 3 hour program. This is also a great opportunity to boost self-confidence and have exposure to the larger school buildings. Students will also have weekly access to the school library and be able to check out books.


The target class size is 12 students. The class time is 8:00-11:00 on Monday through Thursday on the following weeks: June 6, 13, 20, 27 & July 11 (no class the week of July 4). Kindergarten Readiness Academy Class is offered all all elementary school buildings this summer.


Enrollment forms can be obtained in your school office. If you have additional questions about this opportunity, please connect with Mrs. April Keepers, principal at Coolidge Elementary (920) 751-6955 or akeepers@neenah.k12.wi.us.
