    SLACK

    Washington has developed its own SLACK community as of September 2020 which has been designated as the primary communication and community-building vehicle for the school community.  Messages posted in English will be auto-translated into Spanish, there's no cost to join, it is suitable for those who do not want to be on social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram.

    To be invited to Slack, which is a channel for current Washington families only, please contact Katie Brick at Brick8499@gmail.com

    Facebook

    We are retaining a public page for people interested in Washington who are not current Washington Families.  You can “Like” this page at https://www.facebook.com/washschoolevanston/

    Classroom Communication

    The staff directory lists emails, phones and a website if your child's teacher has one. Some teachers communicate with parents directly; some set up Google Plus accounts so parents can see daily classroom activities. Phones don't ring in the classroom during the school day, so it's best to call the office if you need to reach your child during the day.
