  • Guidance for reopening schools, next steps

    The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction released a Reopening Washington Schools 2020: District Planning Guide. We are in the process of thoroughly reviewing this guide. We are also beginning the process to create a workgroup of educators, nurses, support staff, parents and students to determine which of the suggested models will work best for our district. We will also have to consider local guidance from the Snohomish Health District related to our area’s pandemic statistics.

  • Message from Dr. Cook with resources for families

    I wanted to reach out to you about the tragic events and tensions that are occurring across our country. It is essential that our students and staff members learn and work in a safe and inclusive environment that recognizes and respects people of all races, backgrounds and experiences. As a school district we will continue our commitment to focus on equity and culturally responsive practices for our students, staff members and families. To our students and families of color, please know that we care about you. We hear you. We see you. We support you. You matter.

  • Emergency school closure extended through remainder of 2019-20 school year

    Gov. Jay Inslee and Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal announced that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. While this news is disheartening, it’s not surprising. The statewide efforts to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 are working, and we have to continue the course to protect the safety and well-being of our students, staff members, and families. While our school buildings will be closed, teaching and learning will continue.

  • Learning resources and expectations

    When the emergency school closure started, our goal—based on guidance from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)—was to deepen, strengthen, and enrich students’ prior learning from this school year. Based on the new guidance from OSPI, our goals have changed now that the emergency closure has been extended for the remainder of the school year. We will now provide new learning for students, in addition to building on their prior learning.
