Parent Pick-Up Procedure

  • At Washington Elementary, we have initiated a "Drive Thru" pick-up procedure.  Each family is assigned a car number to last the entire time your children attend Washington (3-4).  This number is assigned to your family only.  

    We ask that you have your child learn this number.  It will expedite the dismissal process.  If possible, mark it on a piece of tape on his/her backpack. 

    In an effort to keep the process running smoothly…

    • If you are having someone else pick up your child(ren), please share your number with them (you can write it on a large piece of paper). 
    • If someone other than YOU is picking up your child…
      1. Send a note so the school knows the name of the person picking up your child. 
      2. Make sure your child knows who is picking them up. 

    The number that you have been assigned should be visible in the front DRIVER's side window so it can be seen easily by our staff on duty. 

    If a car approaches and has no visible number, the guardian will have to pull into a parking place and enter the building to sign out their child(ren). 

    How do I get my number?
    You can print out the Car ID form, complete it, and bring it to the Main Office.

    We will provide you with the yellow cards with your assigned number. 

    You can stop in the office to fill out a form (be prepared to provide your license plate number).
    Your form will be kept on file in the event of an emergency.
    You can pick up your family number in the Main Office any time during office hours (8:30-3:30).
