Washougal – Washougal families and patrons are invited to a community open house at the new Columbia River Gorge Elementary School and replacement Jemtegaard Middle School, 35300 S.E. Evergreen Highway, Washougal, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Visitors will be allowed to go on self-guided tours with students and staff stationed throughout the building to answer questions. Guests will also receive a facility map and fact sheet.
