Safety First

Please take note:

  1. 67th Street is ONE way SOUTHBOUND during drop-off and pick-up. Between 7:00-8:30am and 2:00-3:30pm traffic is only allowed to move southbound.
  2. Thank you ahead of time for being considerate to our neighbors on 67th and all around our building by NOT blocking driveways nor turning around in driveways. 67th street is extremely busy in the morning and at dismissal so your continued efforts at being patient and follow the posted rules help keep everyone safe.
  3. There is a handicap parking sign posted on the north end of the cutout on 67th Street. Cars, buses and daycare vans should avoid this area at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.
  4. 68th street - please follow posted rules. There are only a few 15min spots, otherwise there is NO parking on 68th street.

Please review the link, Safe Routes to School: School Map, for some important reminders to help improve the safety of students and others around Washington School.

Thanks for your cooperation!
