School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Washington Mill’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:35 to 3:20.

Washington Mill is one of the few schools in the area that offers full-time preschool. There are a few other schools in the area with part-time programs but Washington Mill’s preschoolers are on a nearly identical schedule as the other grade school students.

Preschool hours are Monday from 8:35 to noon and Tuesday through Friday from 8:35 to 3:20. 

If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Washington Mill offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement has been linked to student achievement. When looking for a school for your kids you’re also looking for a school that’s a good fit for you as well.

Washington Mill PTA supports the school through various fundraiser during the school year. Funds from PTA fundraisers go towards everything from after-school enrichment programs to social events.

  • Running Club
  •  Lego Club
  • Science Club
  • Garden Club

The Washington Mill PTA website has a calendar of both school and PTA sponsored events. You can also sign up on the website to volunteer at upcoming events.

There are lots of opportunities to support your child and the school by volunteering in the lunchroom, office, and classrooms. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
