Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Board of Directors has selected Dr. Jon Holmen to be the next Lake Washington School District Superintendent. They announced their decision on Monday, March 23, 2020.

Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District has been following guidance from Public Health in an effort to stay open as long as possible. In light of the current information shared today by our elected officials, we believe it is time to plan for alternative ways to serve our community and families. 

In collaboration with our School Board of Directors and our Lake Washington Education Association, we have made the decision to close all schools from March 12 through March 27, and re-evaluate any further closures during that time. 

In light of today’s news about a King County resident’s death related to the Coronavirus (or COVID-19), and that additional cases are anticipated, we wanted to reach out to share what Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is doing to monitor and prepare for a potential increase in frequency of the Coronavirus in our schools.

    Visitations serve as an effective means of communication among the district, its staff, and citizens. 

    Within the reasonable guidelines set in regulation KK-R, the right of citizens to visit district schools and classrooms is recognized. Citizens of the community and other interested persons are encouraged to visit schools and classrooms. Every effort shall be made to accommodate any and all persons desiring to make such visits. 

    Although the district recognizes the right of reasonable visitation, and encourages citizens to exercise it, the preservation of the instructional process and the welfare of students shall remain the district's paramount concern and duty. Coordination and approval of all visitations shall be the responsibility of the building principal, or program coordinator when the class is not under a building principal.
