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:

    which are applicable to the project. All approved projects shall be constructed so to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The superintendent or designee shall review the general conditions for each project when submitted by the architect and shall assume responsibility for these conditions being proper and sufficient to protect the Lake Washington School District.

    The superintendent or designee with assistance from the architect shall be responsible to the superintendent and the board in seeing that all articles of the general conditions are observed during the construction period.

    Change orders shall be approved by the architect and the superintendent or designee and whenever possible shall be recommended for board approval prior to proceeding with the work. In cases where approval is needed immediately in order to avoid a project delay, the superintendent or designee may approve change orders up to the amount of the contingency in the project budget.
