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.  

Lake Washington School District has finalized plans to make up for the days and time missed due to the January snow events. The 2019-20 calendar has been modified to reflect the changes.

    Academic Support - Teacher & Student

    Academic Support provides leadership to ensure success for students receiving academic interventions, services to help students acquire English language proficiency, services for Native American students, and services designed to help mitigate the effects of poverty on student learning and success in school. The team supports efforts focused on ensuring academic success for every student by collaborating with district leaders, school principals, and teams to develop tiered instruction to increase student access and engagement, close achievement and opportunity gaps, and support student learning and success.

    Lake Washington School District recognizes there are a number of families in need in our community. It can be difficult to know where to turn when you need help. That is why the Homeless Liaison developed a list of community resources to support students, parents and families in our community, whether homeless or not.

    The list of community resources is organized by type of services offered. This list is not intended to be complete. If you know of other resources that should be added to the list, please contact Joan Wraalstad at 425-936-1287.
