Dear Shiloh Families,
Spring break and our move to Camp Shiloh are just one week away! This week we'll have field trips to Camp Shiloh as listed below. An open house will be hosted Thursday from 6 - 7 pm. We’ll start school at Camp Shiloh, 13120 N. Pittsburgh, on Monday, April 9.
Again, thank you for staying up to date during this very exciting time.
Picking up your child from school at Camp Shiloh:
If you come to school early to pick up your child, you'll enter through the far right doors at Camp Shiloh and check in with Mrs. Ellenz in the office. She'll call your child down and you'll be invited to wait for your child in the vestibule next to the office. If you come to school to pick up your child after school, you are invited to wait outside until your child exits the building through the far right doors.

If you have any questions, please contact Transportation at 509-465-6107 or Shiloh Elementary at 509-465-6800.
Driving your child to Camp Shiloh
As you know, we have emphasized the use of our buses to transport children to and from school once we move to Camp Shiloh. This is to lessen congestion in front of the school thereby improving student, staff, and family safety. Although we have planned for adult supervision on our buses for several weeks following our move, we understand that there will times that you must transport your child in your own personal vehicle.
If you do transport your own child to school in the morning and your child does not eat breakfast at school, please plan for a drop off between 9:00 and 9:10. We will not have adequate supervision before 9 am for children not eating breakfast.
If your child eats breakfast at school, 8:50 would be the earliest time necessary for drop off. This will give 15 minutes for breakfast once the child gets inside and retrieves breakfast from the kitchen, takes it to the table, and sits down to eat.
