Would you wear a watch and slippers made from carbon dioxide emissions? Or brush your teeth using toothpaste made from CO₂? Before the pandemic, students at Evergreen Middle School were learning about real products that capture and store carbon dioxide that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.
Child Care Resources
The district is continuing to work with our community partners, YMCA and Boys & Girls Clubs of King County to provide child care for students in grades K-5 during remote learning. In addition, our district extended day program has been providing child care at select sites. As we transition into in-person learning in our elementary schools, we know that there may be additional interest in childcare. We encourage interested families to reach out to the provider for their school. If there is enough interest and space available, locations may be added.
Below is a table showing the current sites and providers available. See the provider box below the table for contact information and school areas served. If you are interested in childcare, either full day (for remote learners) or afternoon care (for in-person learners), fill out the interest form/email the applicable provider. Each provider will determine if/when locations can be added based on demand. Numbers of students able to be served may be limited due to space limits in buildings and ability to hire staff.
