Washington Playground use during the School Day-REMINDER!

For the safety of our students, we are going to ask that siblings, or children waiting for their school time to begin, not utilize the playground when WELC staff are on the playground supervising WELC students. Our playground space is limited and we have designated times for our classrooms to be out on the playground in order to minimize the amount of children out there together.

Remember that our AM classes are in session from 8:20-11:00 and our PM classes are in session from 12:05-2:45. We also have a Tuesday/Thursday recess time from 11:20-12:00 for our students that are in our 4K and Phono programs.

If the playground is empty, please feel free to enjoy it while monitoring your children. If WELC staff/students are present, please understand our need to monitor just "our children" at that time and refrain from adding extra children to the mix.

We worry about maintaining safety, as well as making sure all children are following our school/playground rules.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Thanks for your understanding!

Mrs. Nelson
