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

On April 6, 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. As we shared on March 27, students will receive information from their teacher(s) this week regarding learning resources. At the end of this week, students and families will receive an email update from our Teaching & Learning Department with specific information about the new learning resources, including student requirements and expectations. This information will also be posted to the district website.

During the school closure, meals are available for children Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. 1 p.m. at both of our middle schools. Our tech team is also providing Chromebook support for students and families by emailing techsupport@lkstevens.wednet.edu

We know that this is a difficult and uncertain time, but we live and work in an amazingly supportive community. Please continue to lift each other up. We will get through this!
