All Lake Washington School District students have the right to public education. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Plyler vs. Doe (457 U.S. 202 (1982)) that undocumented children and young adults have the same right to attend public primary and secondary schools as do U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Lake Washington does not ask for or collect immigration status information.
Committed to the health and wellness of our students
Lake Washington School District is committed to the health and wellness of our students. Each school has a registered nurse available to provide a range of services. At the beginning of each year nurses collect student health information to plan for needs during the school day.
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) nurses practice professional nursing and provide school health services designed to:
- Promote health and safety
- Intervene with actual and potential problems
- Provide education and case management services
- Actively collaborate with students, families, communities, school staff and district employees
Names and contact information for the nurse at each school are listed below.
You can contact the nurse at your child’s school by calling the main office.
