Kirkland, Wash. – The U.S. Department of Education announced today that Carl Sandburg Elementary and Discovery Community School are among the 2020 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools award honorees.
Snow Make-Up Days Announced
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. The 2019-20 calendar has May 26 built-in as a snow day, so a total of two days must be made up beyond the built-in snow day.
Due to the canceled days (January 13, 14 and 15) the following changes will be made to the 2019-20 calendar:
- Tuesday, May 26 is now a full school day. Previously, this was scheduled as a No School: Snow Make-up Day
- Wednesday, June 17 is now a 1.5-hour early release Wednesday. Previously, this was scheduled to be a half day for the last day of school.
- Thursday, June 18 is now a regular school day.
- Friday, June 19 is now a Half-Day: Last Day of School
This new calendar means the last day of school will be on June 19, 2020 (and will be a half day). You can print the latest versions of the calendar here: https://www.lwsd.org/about-us/district-calendar.
This plan allows the District to maintain the essential components of staff training, planning, and collaboration time during early release Wednesdays and Full-Day LEAP while also keeping the last day of school within the same week as the original calendar.
