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.

    Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Parent-teacher conferences mean parents and the teacher exchange information for the benefit of the student. Whether the student is a first grader whose parents are helping him or her learn to read or a senior struggling with calculus, conferences can help parents and teachers work together to plan ways they can help the student work to their highest capability and succeed.

    What Could I Ask?
    Here is a sampling of questions you may want to ask:

    • At what level is my child working in the major subjects?
    • What are the reasons that he/she is at a particular level?
    • What work do you expect my child to cover during the year?
    • In addition to the goals my child has set for himself/herself, are there other areas he / she should work on this year?
    • How can I help my student reach her / his goals?
    • Does my child arrive in the classroom on time, calm and ready for work?
    • Does he / she contribute worthwhile information to the class?
    • Does my child work and play well with other members of the class and with other children on the playground?
    • Is my child developing good work and study habits?
    • Is he / she emotionally mature? What can I do to help with social and emotional growth during the year?
    • How can I help you?

    Conference Suggestions
    Here are a few "helpful hints" that you may find useful as you prepare for your child's conference.

    • Make written notes concerning any questions that you or your child may have.
    • Please bring these "helpful" notes with you to the conference.
    • Try to make specific comments about the report card without comparing it to previous ones or to another child's progress report card.
    • Please encourage your child to base his/her feelings of success on setting and achieving goals instead of what is on the report card.
