About PlanetK8

Washington is Leading the Way! 

Dear Parents,

Washington Elementary is excited to announce that we are partnering with PlanetK8 for all of our  communication needs.  We have a school “Home Page” and we will post announcements, calendar events, sporting events and much more on the school site.  It is a web-based site that allows you to “Follow” your child’s/children’s Learning Centers and extracurricular activities.

 The unique benefit of PlanetK8 is that YOU will be able to select what’s important to you.  You may always visit the school’s Home Page, but you will also be able to choose to “Follow” the classes and activities that you would like to stay up-to-date on.  The school and teachers will communicate with you through emails and/or text messages.  The teachers will post homework assignments, upcoming tests, projects and all classroom events in an effort to take our communication to the next level. 

You should have already received an email from PlanetK8.com.  This email should have introduced you to the site, explained you have an account (which is your email) and assigned you a personal password.  If you did not receive this email, I have attached a review sheet explaining how to login and get started.

 The next step is for you to login and choose to “Follow” all of the Learning Centers (and extracurricular activities) that are important to you.  I have attached a sheet explaining on how to do this for your convenience.

We will begin posting items and sending notifications within the next week.  This will be the beginning of a new era regarding communication between the school, teachers and parents.  Please feel free to contact Howard Dale or the PlanetK8 support center if you need any assistance.  The PlanetK8 email is schoolsupport@planeths.com and they have a toll-free number that has live operators available from 7am-5pm at 1-888-668-7452.
