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.

    File: 4200

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

    Within the reasonable guidelines set in 4200P, 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.
