Important Update from Washington State PTA.

Due to the current and predicted winter storm conditions, we are acting out of an abundance of caution and concern for our PTA advocates, board members, and staff and have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2019 Focus Day activities. Your safety is important to us!

Focus Day program CANCELLED: 9:00am – 10:30am at the United Churches of Olympia


What about meetings with legislators?

If members, local PTAs, or councils scheduled meetings with legislators, please use your best judgement and decide if it is safe for you to proceed. Be sure to contact your legislators as soon as possible to cancel/reschedule your meetings as needed.

What about Advocacy Week?

The good news is that our Advocacy Week electronic messages will still happen! Each day you will receive a message to send to your legislators regarding a WSPTA legislative priority.

Will Focus Day be rescheduled?

Based on the current legislative calendar, unfortunately no. But, please remember that any day is a great day to advocate! You don’t need WSPTA to head to Olympia. Schedule meetings with your legislators and grab your fellow PTA advocates any day that works for you.

What if we have questions?

You can email our WSPTA Advocacy Director, Nancy Chamberlain, at with any questions.

Thank you for your understanding, and please be safe out there!
