School Policies


A Uniform Policy for the Montebello Unified School District was approved on February 25, 1997. The policy is supported by the staff, parents and community of Washington Elementary and the school safety committee as a part of a SAFE SCHOOL PLAN. This policy will help Washington Elementary maintain an effective and safe learning environment as well as contribute to the idea that school is a serious learning place and a cohesive morale builder.
