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.

    Late registration for AP exams 

    College Board changed registration dates for May 2020 AP exams. To meet the new College Board ordering deadlines, LWSD students registered for AP exams last October.  

    LWSD recognized that some students may need more time to decide if they want to take AP exams and is offering a late AP exam registration window from February 18, 2020 through the end of the school day on February 27, 2020. Students who register during the late AP Exam Registration window will incur a $50 per exam late fee in addition to the $96 per exam fee. 

    NO AP EXAM REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY ON FEBRUARY 27, 2020.

    More information on registration dates, late fees and cancellation fees is available here.
