Where can I park for the conference?
Please park in Wydown Middle School's parking garage under the soccer field off of Dartford Avenue. Space is limited so street parking is also available on both sides of Wydown. You may also park in Wash U's First Congregational Church/Preschool parking lot across the street from Wydown. We are also a Metro Link Bus stop and not too far from the Big Bend Metrolink stop.
Is there somewhere to pump or breastfeed through the day?
Yes! Please ask a Clayton staff member or ESJ member where you can find the PTO room or an administrator office.
Can I receive documentation that I attended the conference?
Yes! We will have Certificates of Attendance at the main registration desk signed by the ESJ President.
Will there be an after-party?
Yes! Continue to connect and network at The Post in Maplewood (7372 Manchester Rd.) after the conference! The Post is giving ESJ conference folks specials ($3 wells, $5 Post-Its, and $2.50 bottles) on drinks. Bring "The Post flyer" which will be handed out at the Registration Table for specials!

How should I dress?
Dress in layers! The A/C system at Wydown has been having some issues. It will likely be warm. We will have a designated area for coats and umbrellas since the forecast shows rain!
