Redmond, Wash. – On April 30, 2020, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) sold a total of $118.85 million of tax-exempt refunding bonds, which will refinance $134 million of its existing debt, to take advantage of lower market interest rates. The refinancing will save the District’s taxpayers more than $18.6 million over the next nine years.

Redmond, Wash. – The State Board of Education (SBE), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC) have identified 391 schools statewide to receive recognition. Schools in Washington stand out for closing gaps, showing growth, and demonstrating achievement according to new data released by the state.

    School bus

    The district provides transportation only to those students living outside a one-mile radius, unless the district has reviewed walk routes and determined no safe walk routes are available. Within that boundary, our practice allows for elementary students to walk up to one and a half miles to school and middle and high school students to walk up to two miles. Students with walk distances that exceed these limits are eligible for bus service. These guidelines are used to establish all walk boundaries for the Lake Washington School District.

    2019-20 Snow Routes
    Note: Snow bus routes may be the same as your normal bus route.

    If your student is eligible for transportation, you will receive a postcard in the mail each year, before school begins, listing the bus information for your student(s). This postcard contains the route number; bus stop location; and time of pick up and drop off. If you did not receive a postcard or would like to confirm the information, you can look it up online, by using the above School Assignment & Bus Finder tool. Postcards are based on the route information on the date they were printed and are subject to change, we recommend that you check the online route information the day before school starts to verify there are no changes.

    Parents will be contacted by the driver with route information for special needs students and preschoolers.

    Bus routes may change slightly as the year goes on. Please check the School & Bus Finder on this page for current route information.

    Transportation also has tool that allows you to view the estimated time of arrival for your bus. More information is available on the My Stop App page.
