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.

    Response to Student Injury or Illness

    File: 3418

    In case of an accident or sudden illness requiring medical attention, the school has the responsibility of notifying the parents or guardians. In the event they cannot be reached, the appropriate physician listed by the parents or guardians may be called, or if the doctor cannot be found, any physician readily available. In addition, the school may have the responsibility of transporting the child should the need arise and the physician deem it safe. In situations which appear especially hazardous, the local aid car may be called. 

    Teachers are required to report all accidents to principal's office and to fill out an accident form. 

    Under no circumstance should an ill child ever be taken home unless a parent or guardian is there or, as specified on the enrollment card, a neighbor is home to assume full responsibility. 

    First aid kits are provided in buildings for use in instances of minor accidents. Directions for use are provided in the Procedures for Illness and Emergencies in School.

    Note: Specific first aid and accident report procedures can be found in the individual school handbooks.
