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.  



    Free Meals

    Grab and Go Student Meals

    To help support families during the school closure due to the coronavirus, Lake Washington School District is committed to providing FREE healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch to any child 18 and under. There are two options:

    • Grab & Go Meals that can be picked up at 6 middle schools: Finn Hill, Inglewood, Kamiakin, Redmond, Rose Hill, and Timberline between 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    • Limited Meal Delivery pickup times vary depending on location selected. Added locations and new times starting April 2!

    Meals will be available during spring break, April 6-10

    Meal orders for both options will be accepted from 2:00 p.m. the previous day until 8:00 a.m. the day of the pickup. Parents will be allowed to pick up meals for children if they verify on the order form that they will pick up. If parents do not verify on the order form, then children must be present to get a meal. 

    Pantry Packs will have volunteers at each of the six middle school locations on Fridays to provide meals for the weekend for any students that need one. For more information about the Pantry Packs program, please visit:

    Stay safe! Please practice social distancing when you pick up your meal and keep 6 feet apart.
