About Us

L.P. Brown, named after Leland P. Brown, former Olympia teacher, principal and twenty-six year Superintendent of Olympia Schools, is located in the northwest corner of Olympia. It serves approximately 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition, special needs children are served in the building’s autism program, and the Infant Toddler Programs.

The school was originally built in 1965. In 1968, additions were made to the school, which included the library and a six-classroom wing expansion. In 1978, the multipurpose building was expanded, increasing the size of the gymnasium. In 1986, a covered playshed structure was constructed. Separate areas for the bus and parent drop-off, a set of new student lavatories and fire sprinklers for the main building were completed in September 1997. The addition of six classrooms in a new wing and a remodeled music room was finished in January 1998, giving L.P. Brown a total of 18 classrooms.

During the school year, L.P. Brown provides space for the YMCA’s before and after-school childcare, and evenings find the building used for sports activities by the YMCA and Olympia Parks and Recreation, as well as school and community meetings.

Ingersoll Stadium Closed for Turf Replacement

Ingersoll Stadium is closed through early September for installation of new field turf. During the closure there is no public access to Ingersoll, including key card access, due to the work that is ongoing across the entire turf area and staging of the work in the area along the track. There is a football game scheduled for Friday, Sept. 4 (CHS vs. Tumwater - Go Cougars!), which will be conducted as planned, but the stadium likely will not be open to the public until school starts as the finishing touches are put on the project. The new turf will replace an 11-year-old surface that has exceeded its eight-year life span. Thanks to everyone for their patience as the district undertakes this important safety project!

2015-16 School Calendar

The 2015-16 school year calendar has been finalized. Here are some of the significant changes: 

  • A recent survey showed elementary and middle school families preferred early releases to late starts for teacher collaboration time. The new calendar honors that request by ending late starts and moving to early releases for elementary and middle schools.
  • There will be fewer of these early releases than there were late starts this year. This will present fewer disruptions to learning time and provide larger time blocks for teacher collaboration in elementary and middle schools.
  • There will be more consistency in that all early releases will be a half day.
  • High schools will not have early releases except for Friday, Nov. 13, Friday, Jan. 29 and Friday, June 17 (for grading).
  • The spring elementary conference week has been moved to be right before spring break, much like our neighboring districts.
