April 6, 2020 - E-Learning Edition
Letter from Mrs. Craig (Revised)
Dear Washington Families -
We welcome you back to school as we return from spring break and resume e-learning. The state has shifted from the original two weeks of "Act of God" days to statewide Remote Learning/E-Learning. The district sent a communication around e-learning plans to parents today. If you have questions around those plans once you read over that information or throughout this stay-at-home time, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher and/or to me directly.
Please note that this Friday, April 10th is a non-attendance day, so there will be no E-learning on this day.
This newsletter includes information on food distribution and technology device distibution; both do continue Mondays through Fridays 9:00am until noon.
Please know that as a Washington staff, we are working to evolve with the ways we connect with students and support learning during this unprecedented situation. Your communication and partnerships are key.
We miss you and truly hope your families are staying healthy and well.
"Hi" and "We miss you" from your Washington Teachers & Staff

Food Insecurity Crisis Fund
In District 200, 28% of students come from low-income households. Each day, 3,310 students receive a free or reduced lunch. While the District has done an incredible job of meeting the food needs of families during the school week during this pandemic, many parents are struggling to feed their children in the evenings and on weekends.
Your donation today will allow District 200 social workers to connect local families with supportive resources to meet nutritional needs.
You can donate here: Food Insecurity Crisis Fund.
