Message from our Principal

October 2017

Dear Washington Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to offer a safety reminder to all of us.

Because Washington is a neighborhood school, there are a large number of our children who walk, bike and get dropped off on or near campus.  With that, here are some reminders when it comes to walking, dropping-off, picking-up and parking.

Please follow traffic laws – some of the many violations we often see are: blocking traffic, double parking in the parking lot, parking in the pick-up/drop-off zone (in front of our school), parking in yellow zones, jaywalking, parking in disabled parking areas without a permit, and CHILDREN ENTERING OR EXITING CARS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.

Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to remind those who walk with children to obey our safety patrol students.  These students volunteer their time in this important leadership role.  Safety patrol students are here to help us be safe when crossing the sidewalk or in front of the parking lot.  They need the support of adults to help keep everyone safe.

If we all follow the traffic laws we make it much safer for our children.  I greatly appreciate those who do even if it means a little less convenience – thank you!

In partnership,

Keith Collins,
