Thank you so much for joining us at the first annual Green Clean Schools Leadership Summit. We’ve gathered to discuss the future of green cleaning, come up with bold new ideas, build new partnerships and advance the green cleaning movement. Together we can change the future of schools, making them healthier, safer and even happier places.
We’re seeing more dedication, innovation and support for green cleaning in schools than ever before. This summit is going to push that even further. It’s up to you, the leaders in the field, to lead the way for green cleaning to finally become the norm in schools everywhere. We’ll use information and findings from the summit to inform our ongoing guidance, outreach and education. We hope you’ll take home new ideas and strategies, partnerships and friendships to help your program grow, too.
For attendees not staying at the Silver Cloud Hotel, here are some parking options:
- Visit the UW-Seattle campus gatehouse on Pend Orielle Road and Stevens Way NE up the hill from the Facility Services Training Center and let them know that you are here for the Green Clean Schools Leadership Summit being held at the Facility Services Training Center. Parking is $15 for the day. You’ll be directed to park near the Padelford Parking Garage or lots N19-N22. It’s a short, five-minute walk from the parking lot to the Facility Services Training Center.
- Park at the pay and display lot at the corner of Padelford Hall close to the Facility Services Training Center. Machines take both cash and credit, but parking time is limited and you’ll need to refill occasionally during break times.
The Silver Cloud Hotel is about 40 minutes by taxi from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA-TAC) and the approximate cost is $60 one-way. Other airport transportation options include shared shuttle services, shared rides and public transportation. Please note, public transportation isn’t consistent at all hours. The Silver Cloud Hotel is approximately 75 minutes to and from the airport by public transportation.
