On behalf of our entire staff at Washington School, welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I trust that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer with your families. Our faculty and staff are enthusiastically awaiting the opening of school. The teachers have prepared their classrooms, awaiting the arrival of our new students. Our custodial and maintenance staff members have had a very busy summer making sure that our building is safe, organized and attractive. Although much information was provided to you through my summer letter, there is still more to share. Please take a few minutes to read on so that you will be well informed with regard to other school policies and procedures.
