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.  

Lake Washington School District has finalized plans to make up for the days and time missed due to the January snow events. The 2019-20 calendar has been modified to reflect the changes.



    Learning Resources



    Due to student absences directly connected to COVID-19 and in preparation for possible closures, our district staff has created learning resources that students may complete at home. We will be using digital tools that are familiar to students, families and staff in our district. 

    Our goal is to provide students and families with learning opportunities that can be used at home. These activities are not meant to replace daily classroom instruction and will not be graded. When students return to school, our teachers will continue to build on the learning that was occurring prior to absences or closures. We will continue to update and guidance throughout any closure.

    Learning Resources directions

    In these challenging times, the Lake Washington School District understands the importance of keeping students engaged in learning. The district is offering supports to our students and families. Below you will find a menu of Learning Resources for preschool, elementary and secondary students including special programs.
