On Friday, October 29, 2021, students at Washington School will celebrate Halloween by showing their spirit and taking part in classroom activities after lunch.
As we prepare for our Halloween celebrations, there are some things we'd like to share with you.
- Halloween spirit wear or Halloween themed festive clothing can be worn for the day (black, orange, fun Halloween shirts, etc.). Please be sure that clothing is appropriate for school. No costumes!
- Classes will work on individual projects or crafts.
- Designated class parents are welcome to assist and have to follow Covid protocols for entering the building.
- No food.
- No goodie bags.
- Classes will stay together.
We are looking forward to our workshops which begin in November.

A Message from Our School Nurse
Please remember to keep your child home when sick as a head cold can be very challenging when wearing a mask, so give your child a day to recuperate.
When to get your child tested for COVID-19:
- If your child has a fever (temp >100)
- If your child has two or more of these symptoms: cough, congestion, sore throat, headache, stomach ache, nausea, vomiting.
A negative test or an alternative diagnosis from a physician are required for your child to return to school.
When reporting an absence due to illness please let me know your child's symptoms. It is not sufficient to say absent for sickness.
There are currently no travel restrictions.
Remote learning is ONLY available if your child has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or is in quarantine for COVID-19 exposure that we have communicated about.
Please remember to send in a water bottle with your child as wearing a mask all day can be very dehydrating.
