Important information for students who ride buses to and from school
In an effort to further reduce student close contacts and COVID-19 transmission, our Transportation Department has reinstituted more accurate and reliable seating charts for all students. Drivers will also take attendance on the bus after it arrives at the school each morning. This information will allow us to know exactly which students rode the bus each day. In the afternoons, attendance will be taken before the bus leaves to drop students off at their stops. These additional safety precautions may slightly delay bus schedules.
Please remind your child of the importance of following the bus seating chart, and listening to the safety instructions given by the driver.
We thank you in advance for your continued patience and partnership as we work to keep students safe and healthy.

Our students will be contributing members of society and lifelong learners, pursuing their passions and interests in an ever-changing world.

We understand that some members of our community are concerned and confused about the requirements of ESSB 5044, which was signed into law in April. We also understand that there is a great deal of attention around Critical Race Theory and whether it is taught in our schools. The terms “equity, diversity and inclusion” may have become popularized recently, but in LSSD we have been striving for these ideals for some time.
Are masks required for the 2021-22 school year? Yes. Current guidance from the Washington State Department of Health and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction is that students and school employees will wear approved face coverings during the school day when indoors—regardless of immunization status.
