Superintendent Message - March 2018

Dr. Traci Pierce, Superintendent

Dear Lake Washington Families,

The safety and security of our students and staff is a top priority. Following the recent tragic events in Florida, many parents have shared questions, concerns and suggestions regarding the district’s approach to school safety.

As a district, we have an established District Safety Structure and Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. We continually assess districtwide safety needs, assess implementation of safety measures and protocols, identify training needs, and ensure response to changing conditions.

At the March 5 School Board meeting, I presented a report on our approach to school safety, specifically focusing on the “Protection” element of our Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. The report includes information on our safety structure, protection goals, current strategies and efforts, and the strategies undergoing feasibility studies. I encourage all parents to view the video on the district’s YouTube channel.

Also, please note that the district is also in the process of planning, in partnership with our cities, Community Safety Forums. Please look for more information and detail to come.

Sincerely,

Dr. Traci Pierce, Superintendent
Lake Washington School District
