Arrival and Dismissal
Students may enter the doors at Washington at 7:30. They are supervised by two adults in the gym until 8:00 when the bell rings and they are able to go to their classroom. (Teachers are not on duty until 8:00.) The tardy bell rings at 8:15. Any student arriving after that time must be signed in by an adult.

The school day ends at 2:45. Students who have not been picked up by 3:00 will be supervised in the gymnasium and can be picked up through the playground door to the gym.
Washington K-1 Elementary Get Out and Walk Day

Wednesday, October 4 was GET OUT and WALK DAY at Washington K-1 Elementary School! This school-wide event was held in conjunction with National Walk to School Day. Students, staff, and community members attending this event walked nearly one mile around the block, which was led by a police and firefighters’ escort through the streets! Washington Physical Education Teacher, Miss Angie Ellis coordinated this big event to help bring more awareness to the importance of developing healthy habits, particularly becoming more physically active and to also build a sense of community. Many community members and groups assisted with this event including Tiffin Police Department, Tiffin Fire/Rescue Division, several Tiffin University student athletes and coaches, Sentinel’s Public Safety Class, Alumni of Tiffin Citizens’ Academy, TCS Administrators, Mr. Barber, Mr. Boes, Mrs. Losey, and Mrs. Michelle Tuite, School Counselor Suzanne Reinhart and her therapy dog Kennedy, and a few other special guests! Tiffin City Mayor, Mayor Montz also attended this year's event as the special guest who briefly spoke to the students about how daily exercise and physical activity are important aspects in living a long healthy life and then officially kicked off the walk. As a memento of the walk and to also serve as a reminder to get out and get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day, at the end of the walk, each student received a key chain with a walker and sneaker token! This was a super fun, memorable day for our school, staff, community members, and most importantly for our Washington students!
Going Home from Washington

Students at Washington go home by one of three ways:

1. Bus
2. Loop
3. Walk-up

Consistency is very important for our little ones. We ask that parents try to make travel arrangements that will not change on a daily basis. If a need arises to make a change, the teacher must be notified at the beginning of the week if possible. We ask that ALL CHANGES to the transportation schedule take place prior to noon. Our dismissal process is very organized and any last minute change creates an opportunity for a child to get in the wrong transportation location.

The Elementary Schools are posting the Student Handbook online this school year. Please look on the bottom of this page for the quick link. It will be necessary for parents to sign off stating they have reviewed the information with their child. If you have problems reading the handbook online, please contact the Washington office.
