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.

    Procedure Co-Curricular Program

    File: 2150P

    Extracurricular activities are an integral part of school life and often require as much careful planning and supervision as the academic subjects. However, care must be taken that these activities do not take precedence in importance over the subject matter areas, but remain in the position of supplementing the actual course of study. 

    Eligibility to Represent the School 
    All pupils elected to student offices, or who represent their schools in extra-curricular activities, shall have and maintain good citizenship records, both in and out of school. Any pupil who does not maintain a good citizenship record shall not be allowed to represent his/her fellow students nor the schools for a period of time recommended by his/her principal, but in no case, except when approved by the Board of Directors, shall the time exceed twelve calendar months. 

    Supervision 
    Whenever or wherever held, when conducted under the name of the school or school district or any class or organization thereof, extracurricular activities shall be under the general supervision of the school authorities. 

    Non-Secret 
    Extracurricular groups shall not be secret in nature. 

    Participation 
    All activities affiliated with the school shall be open to all students of that school without regard to race, color, or national origin. 

    Cosponsorship of Student Activities 
    The school district may cosponsor student activities with community organizations provided that: (a) such activities strengthen existing school activities or provide a needed activity to meet district goals, and (b) that such organizations in their cosponsorship observe open meeting practices, nondiscrimination, and other requirements set forth by law, policy, and regulations governing this school district. 

    The superintendent is authorized to establish regulations for the implementation of cosponsorship with individual organizations.
