    Dear Lake Washington Community,  

    Last week, I sent out a message that addressed the tension that we were expecting between our requirement to offer in-person learning and the likely impacts on our ability to operate schools given the number of COVID-19 cases we would see on our campuses. 

    Hello Lake Washington Families,

    I hope this message finds you well as we start the new year. As a district, we are actively working to respond to the early challenges in 2022 to provide our students with the best experience and education we can. In whatever form schooling takes, we are focused on our goal of preparing students for graduating future ready.
