Less plastic waste, healthier oceans

After students at Mann Elementary learned how much plastic ends up in the ocean, and the harmful effects it has on marine life, they tried not to use single-use plastic for 30 days. In culmination of the school’s efforts, students attended an assembly by “Ocean” Annie Crawly on June 8, World Oceans Day.

    Before and After School Care

    LWSD, non-profit organizations offer care at some schools

    Interested in day care for your children before and after the elementary school day in the Lake Washington School District? Some elementary schools in the district offer day care for students at the school, known as the Extended Day program. The District is responsible for that program and both hires and supervises the staff involved.

    Nonprofit organizations also rent school facilities to offer private day care. Those programs are not run by the district. The staff is hired and supervised by the organization listed.

    This list includes both options for your convenience and provides contact information. Please confirm times, costs and space availability with each program.
