For the fifth year in a row, the College Board named Lake Washington School District (LWSD) to its Annual AP District Honor Roll. LWSD is one of only 373 public school districts in the United States and Canada and one of four in Washington state to be honored. Lake Washington is one of two districts in the state to be a multi-year recipient of the AP Honor Roll Award.

At its December 3 meeting, Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) Board of Directors passed Resolution No. 2259 to place a Capital Projects Levy on the April 23, 2019 ballot. This measure, if passed, authorizes a six-year levy totaling $120 million or an average of $20 million per year for six years.

    EpiPen Shortage:
    The EpiPen (brand name version of an epinephrine auto-injector) has been experiencing supply disruptions since May. Mylan, the maker of EpiPen, is encouraging patients to call its customer relations department at 1-800-796-9562 for help locating pharmacies that have EpiPens in stock. In addition, there are several alternatives to the EpiPen, including a generic version and the Auvi-Q. Your doctor or pharmacist can provide a recommendation for other medications. Our school nurses are also available to answer questions.

    Reminder: If your student has a life-threatening medical condition, rescue medication, signed orders, and an Individual Health Plan must be returned to your student’s school by August 30, 2018. If the school does not have these items, your student will be excluded from attending class. Please contact your school nurse for more information. See below for a list of school nurses and email addresses.

    Reminder: One dose of Tdap vaccine is required by state law to attend middle school and high school. If you have not provided the Tdap immunization information to your middle school or high school student, please do so immediately. View LWSD immunization information.

    Committed to the health and wellness of our students

    Lake Washington School District is committed to the health and wellness of our students. Each school has a registered nurse available to provide a range of services. At the beginning of each year nurses collect student health information to plan for needs during the school day.

    School nurses strive to ensure all students can fully participate in educational programs. This starts with daily attendance and includes being well-rested, well-fed, and ready to learn. Our goal is for all students to be successful in school.
