    LWSD recognizes throughout the pandemic, there have been subtle and overt acts of hatred and violence towards our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Our AAPI communities have contributed to our diverse community in meaningful ways. We condemn the acts of violence and hatred that have been perpetrated against our Asian communities and have cast a sense of fear among APPI community. As a school district, we stand in solidarity with our Asian communities.

    Lake Washington School District jointly with the Lake Washington Education Association are releasing pertinent information and details related to secondary educational offerings for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.  

    The District and Association have a shared agreement that secondary students need to be offered access to in-person experiences. Dr. Holmen stated, “We need to ensure that any secondary student who wants an in-person experience is afforded that opportunity.” He went on to say, “Our adolescent youth are experiencing this pandemic in many different ways. We need to be responsive to those needs and be creative in how we address the varying needs across our district.”
