Would you wear a watch and slippers made from carbon dioxide emissions? Or brush your teeth using toothpaste made from CO₂? Before the pandemic, students at Evergreen Middle School were learning about real products that capture and store carbon dioxide that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.
By state law, every public school must be in session for 180 days a year or more and hold classes for a specific number of hours total. The district determines the calendar of days schools are in session, in conjunction with the Lake Washington Education Association, which represents teachers. After the calendar is set, each school determines the school day schedule. The number of hours in each school day must add up by the end of the year to the total required by the state, or more.
The school schedules for every school in the district are listed below. The regular start and end times for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are included, along with the different schedule that is followed on Wednesdays.
