Washington Elementary School

Washington Elementary School has a definitive mission: To provide every child with a sound academic foundation, a positive environment, and the skills necessary to continue learning as a life long pursuit.

Washington Elementary School is situated on a beautifully landscaped, tree-lined five-acre campus. The colonial style structure, which now comfortably houses 600 children, was built in 1931. The structural plan of the building provides: a full gym, a well equipped library and media center, a separate cafeteria complete with hot lunch and hot breakfast programs, a modern computer lab, a classic, air conditioned auditorium with a seating capacity for over 475 persons, 34 standard sized classrooms, a nurse's suite, and individual instructional rooms for art, music, speech, special academic areas, and English as a Second Language instruction.

    PLEASE NOTE: All visitors to Washington School must be prepared to show a photo ID upon entering the building.  This includes conferences, student pick-up, etc.  Visitors should continue to enter the building through the Main Entrance and report directly to the office to sign in, present ID, and receive a pass.  Visitors will be escorted to and from their destination by a staff member.
     
    As a reminder, the Parking Lots at Washington School are for staff members only.  At no time should parents be pulling into the lots.  This includes drop off of children in the morning for before-care as well as pick-up in the afternoon unless specific arrangements have been made with the school.  Drivers should remember to take extreme care around the school during pick-up and drop off as we currently have close to 600 students in and around the school at these times.  In addition, all drivers should find a LEGAL parking space if they need to exit their vehicle for any reason.  Please do not block our neighbors' driveways, fire hydrants, or park in designated No Parking zones.
     
    Thank you for your assistance in maintaining a safe and accident free environment for our students.
