Back to School
August 14 - 18
Hello Washington Families,
We are looking forward to working with you and your child for a fantastic and successful 2023-2024 school year. Below are some procedures and information that you will need to be aware of prior to the first day of school.
All visitors or parents that check their student out early MUST have a state issued ID to scan.
7:25 Students can be dropped off for breakfast or go sit in the gym. Students will not go to the classroom. Teachers will pick up students from the gym each morning.
We have NO supervision before 7:25.
After 7:51 students are consider tardy. Parents will need to park in the parking lot and walk their child in the front office to check them in the kiosk.
For student and staff safety parents will NOT be allow to walk their child in the halls. Every morning all students will go to the gym to be picked up by their classroom teacher.
All car riders will enter the school building through the north entrance. PLEASE DO NOT let your student cross the car loop without a crossing guard to assist them.
All bus and daycare students will enter through the front main entrance. PLEASE don't use the bus/daycare loop from 7:25-8:00 A.M. and 2:15-3:10 P.M. This will ensure that all busses and daycare vans can drop off and pick up with out safety issues.
If your child will be absent please notify the office so we can mark your child's attendance correctly.
All car riders will dismiss from the north door. Parents will need to display their pick up car tag during dismissal or you will need to provide your ID. We appreciate you helping us make dismissal a smooth and quick for everyone by using the pick up car tag.
All bus/daycare riders will exit through the front door.
Cell Phones and Smart Watches:
Student cell phones should remain in backpacks and turned off. All smart watches must only be used as a watch during school hours. If a student is using their device for calls, texting, photos, videos or apps. during the school day, the device will be taken away and a parent must pick it up from the office.
Clothing should be school appropriate. Please make sure your child covers their midriff and shorts are appropriate length.

Please join us to meet your teacher and see your classroom on August 15th. We will all meet in the library at the beginning of each session 5:30 and 6:30 to introduce Mrs. Deering and share some important information. We encourage you to bring your school supplies. We will have tables set up for parents to get car tags, sign up for PTA, check student medication, and community information in the cafeteria.
