In 2014, California passed Assembly Bill 1826 requiring schools
to divert food waste from landfills to organic diversion

compost. This year Washington and 5 other schools in SCUSD
are piloting a food recycling program with our waste hauler,

On April 10, 2019, our Locomotive community had the honor of
hosting Civil Rights icon Dolores Huerta on her 89th birthday!
Thank you to our amazing COMMUNITY for making this day possible,
and for our students who read powerful poetry and essays.
Thank you to all of our community partners for reading to our
students on Friday, March 1st for Read Across America Day! We
were honored to host Governor Newsom and the First
Partner, Jennifer Siebel Newsom.
Our school’s purpose can be narrowed to these beliefs, “We Lead,
We Innovate, We Empower and We Care”. It is through our
focus on caring that we’ve intentionally tried to design a
culture where all learners, families, staff and community members
feel safe, valued and supported. Our school community is
accepting of everyone and we strive to partner with families
and community organizations to continue to provide a safe
place for learning for all. #WeAreLocomotives
