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 for all grade levels.

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.

Woodlawn’s PTA works very closely with the Woodlawn Principals and staff to create programs that benefit the children and their families. They provide safe and fun entertainment while raising money to purchase needed equipment for the school. Their PTA Board is a group of parents who have volunteered to serve on committees supporting various school efforts.

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.
