The First Annual Washington All-School Read: March 2 - March 28

All Washington families and staff are invited to join together to read a special book at home during a four week period starting March 2, 2018 and ending March 28, 2018. The title of our first All-School Read will be unveiled Friday, March 2nd at our kick-off assembly.

Our PTA has generously donated funding so that every JK-5th grade family at Washington will receive a copy of the selected book on March 2nd. Families will also receive an informational letter, trivia questions and pacing guide which lists each night’s reading. Students will have the chance to win fun prizes for turning in their trivia slips!

What will our title be? Find out March 2nd!

Please read the following letter for reminders about head lice. (Letter)

The Wauwatosa School District recently implemented new guidelines for when to keep your child home from school. For more information, click here.


Please read the parking reminders for drop-off and dismissal below:

  • NEVER stop on the East side of 68th Street. There is NO stopping or parking on the East side of the road.

  • Do not park where you see orange traffic cones.

  • Only use the three (15 minute) parking spots at the corner of 68th Street/Garfield Avenue. Cars should NEVER be parked or stopped on the East side of 68th Street near the front door.

  • DO NOT turn around in our neighbors' driveways. Be patient and go around the block.

  • IF you are using the hug and go on 67th Street, do not leave your car. Stay in your car and a staff member will call your child down.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Cold Weather Reminder

Just a reminder to send your child(ren) with a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants and boots everyday. Please have all items labeled with your child's name including their boots. The only time we have indoor recess is if the temperature or wind chill is below 0 degrees or it is raining outside.
