Lake Washington School District jointly with the Lake Washington Education Association are releasing pertinent information and details related to secondary educational offerings for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.  

The District and Association have a shared agreement that secondary students need to be offered access to in-person experiences. Dr. Holmen stated, “We need to ensure that any secondary student who wants an in-person experience is afforded that opportunity.” He went on to say, “Our adolescent youth are experiencing this pandemic in many different ways. We need to be responsive to those needs and be creative in how we address the varying needs across our district.”

    LWSD, non-profit organizations offer care at some schools

    Interested in day care for your children before and after the elementary school day in the Lake Washington School District? Some elementary schools in the district offer day care for students at the school, known as the Extended Day program. The District is responsible for that program and both hires and supervises the staff involved.

    Nonprofit organizations also rent school facilities to offer private day care. Those programs are not run by the district. The staff is hired and supervised by the organization listed.

    This list includes both options for your convenience and provides contact information. Please confirm times, costs and space availability with each program.
