Franklin Avenue Construction-REMINDER & UPDATE!

Beginning on Monday, April 4th, we will have an alternate parking plan due to construction on Franklin Avenue. Please use the link below to access the map regarding available parking for drop-off and pick-up for Washington School.


**Please note, there will be limited space in the Washington School parking lot for NJSD parking, as city employees will be utilizing the entire back row. However, if the spaces are OPEN, you are welcome to park there for the 5-10 minutes it takes to drop-off and/or pick-up your child.


The buses will have a loading zone on the south side of Columbian Street, beginning at Walnut St., which will need to be kept clear of vehicle parking. There will be a parent parking/loading zone on Columbian Street closer to Oak Street.


Arrival and dismissal procedures will remain the same as we will utilize the same doors as we have all year.


For the safety of your children, please remain clear of the construction area on Franklin Avenue if there are construction workers and machinery in the area.


Thank you for your patience and assistance as we work through this situation together!
