What's Up at Washington

NEW STUDENTS.

All students new to the West Haven School District should be formally registered at their incoming school. Call 203-937-4300 for information as to school assignments by home address. The District’s residency policy requires that all students, without exception, produce bona fide proof that they live in West Haven,.

As evidence of residency, the parent or legal guardian of each student must provide the school building administrator with the following most recent documents: Mortgage statement or lease provision, with landlord name and phone number; AND a current utility bill (phone, cell, cable, UI, gas, water).

 

Parents must accompany all new registrants who are under eighteen years of age. They are also required to present educational and health records obtained from the school that was previously attended.”

Congratulations to our very own Mrs. Baldwin (Grade 4 Teacher) for being selected as our SPOTLIGHT teacher. She was honored at the Board of Education meeting on February 4th, 2019. She was alongside five of her fourth grade students who modeled accountable talk for members to watch. Both Mrs. Baldwin and her students did an outstanding job.
