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.

    File: 6605P

    The Washington State Law states that school districts are not required to provide transportation of students to and from school except for selected handicapped students. If the district provides transportation, then students may not be required to walk more than two miles. 

    All students living within a one (1) mile radius or less from school shall walk unless acceptable conditions outlined in the accompanying rules are not met. This distance will be measured as a radius of one mile from the school as determined by the Transportation Department. 

    The criteria to be used by the Transportation Department in determining acceptable walking and riding conditions is incorporated in the rules accompanying this policy.
