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.

    Immunization of Students

    File: 3413.B

    In order to safeguard the school community from the spread of certain communicable diseases and in recognition that prevention is a means of combating the spread of disease, the School Board requires all students to present evidence of having been immunized against those diseases identified and required by the Washington Department of Health (DOH) prior to the first day of school. 

    The District shall allow for exemptions from immunization requirements only as permitted by law.

    Parents of students who are to be excluded for lack of immunization shall be so notified in writing and shall have the opportunity to appeal pursuant to the same rules as apply to student discipline matters. 

    The Superintendent shall adopt procedures necessary to implement this policy.
