It is one thing to get a score of five on any Advanced Placement (AP) exam, but to get every, single point possible is very unique. Elizabeth Fu, International Community School class of 2021, is one of just 375 students across the world to accomplish this.

    Pathway Forward Updates

    Dear LWSD Staff and Families, 

    We would like to share some important updates regarding our ongoing response to COVID-19 related to quarantine protocols, testing, and vaccination. As a school district, we are responsible for implementing guidance provided to us from the Washington State Department of Health.

    Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and Lake Washington Education Association (LWEA) have come to an agreement on how to provide instructional support to students who are required to quarantine due to being positive for COVID-19 or for being identified as a "close contact" of another individual that is positive for COVID-19.

    Dear LWSD Families:

    We are excited to welcome back our students in grades 1-12 tomorrow! 

    As part of a community-wide effort to contribute to the safety of our students, families and staff, we are planning to use the “Wellness Screening” feature in Skyward to help us respond more effectively and quickly when students are exhibiting potential COVID symptoms. For the start of the year, we are asking that all families use the Wellness Screening feature in Skyward Family Access or Skyward Student Access each morning to indicate potential symptoms, whether the student plans to come to school or be absent.
