For the fifth year in a row, the College Board named Lake Washington School District (LWSD) to its Annual AP District Honor Roll. LWSD is one of only 373 public school districts in the United States and Canada and one of four in Washington state to be honored. Lake Washington is one of two districts in the state to be a multi-year recipient of the AP Honor Roll Award.

At its December 3 meeting, Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) Board of Directors passed Resolution No. 2259 to place a Capital Projects Levy on the April 23, 2019 ballot. This measure, if passed, authorizes a six-year levy totaling $120 million or an average of $20 million per year for six years.

    Alcohol Use/Drug Abuse by Students

    File: JFCH/JFCI

    Drug Abuse Symptoms

      1. A student appearing at school or at a school-sponsored activity demonstrating behavior which might indicate drug ingestion, or who admits to a school person that he/she has taken drugs, should be treated as in a potentially very hazardous situation. The student in question then, for his/her own protection, should be removed from contact with other students and placed under the care of a designated adult at school.
      2. The parents should be notified that the student is exhibiting symptoms that may need medical attention.
      3. If parents cannot be reached, the school administrator may contact the student's physician or his/her designated alternate.
      4. The student known to have been taking drugs should not return to school except on advice of competent medical authority. The situation might be handled as any other problem which requires medical clearance for a student's return to school.
