No Summer Camps at Washington Elementary
Due to construction and other building improvements, we will not have summer enrichment camps in our elementary. Thank you for understanding.
Operation Backpack is a program through HACAP, SELCC, and MVCSD. There is no cost to the program and no obligation to participate. Each week, shelf-stable, kid-friendly, and healthy foods are sent home. Most of the foods are easily prepared and can be consumed when parents are working and unable to prepare meals for their children. Please contact our nurse, Jenna Wear, if your family is interested in participating.
Activity Passes Have Been Sent Home
If you purchase a pass for your child now, please notify the office so we can send it home. It is a requirement that these Activity Passes be shown for admittance to each home event. Students without activity passes will need to pay to get in to the event. State-sponsored post-season athletic events (i.e. playoff/tournament games) always require payment for admittance for ALL students.
