RHMS Band

When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.

During its July 13 School Board Meeting, Lake Washington School District Superintendent, Dr. Jon Holmen, removed “Rebels” as the Juanita High School mascot. Dr. Matt Livingston, Director of Secondary Education and Juanita High School Principal, Kelly Clapp, will now begin the process outlined in Policy 6970 to select a new mascot.

    Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. We say their names not because they are the only three. They are three of many whose lives were taken and sadly, their names are now part of our history as a country that should be better because of the promise that was put forth that all people are created equal.

    Lake Washington School District Community:

    Over the past week we have watched events unfold across our country that reflect the anger and outrage that has once again been sparked by a senseless and horrific death.

    Redmond, Wash. – On April 30, 2020, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) sold a total of $118.85 million of tax-exempt refunding bonds, which will refinance $134 million of its existing debt, to take advantage of lower market interest rates. The refinancing will save the District’s taxpayers more than $18.6 million over the next nine years.

    COVID-19 Updates

    We want to thank all the families who were able to complete our recent survey about “hybrid instructional models” for our return to school. We had more than 13,000 responses which are helping us as we continue planning for our return to school.

    Dear Lake Washington School District Families: 

    On July 1, I officially transitioned into my new role as Superintendent. I take the responsibility of leading our District very seriously and know the decisions our team makes over the next couple of months are critical and impactful.

    With the close of the 2019-20 school year, our team has turned our focus to intensively preparing for the reopening of school in the fall. Our goal is to have students on our campuses as much as possible for in-person instruction while complying with health and safety requirements.
