Click here for the very latest updates (dated 3/27/20) from Lake Washington School District.

Click here for a detailed list of available resources for LWSD families.

In addition, please note that all  LWSD schools and playgrounds are closed.

Lake Washington School District playgrounds, athletic facilities and covered play areas are closed until further notice. These closures are by order of King County Public Health and the State of Washington.

Ballfields and playfields are open for walking and other non-team activities. Pick-up games, picnics and other large gatherings are not permitted.

We encourage families to maintain social distancing guidelines when you are walking, hiking or biking in your local parks and neighborhoods.

At this time each school year, we ask for our elementary families to complete an "Elementary Student Verification" form. This is a simple form that lets us know whether or not your student will return to our school next fall. By completing this form, you are helping us with our enrollment projections for the coming year. Having accurate enrollment projections allows us to hire the necessary staff to support our students in the next school year.

We need this information as soon as possible. We hope to have all forms returned by Monday, March 30 at the latest.

You can provide us with this important information by using either of the two methods below:
  • METHOD 1: Complete the online form available here.
  • METHOD 2: Print THIS form, complete it, and return the form to school by either scanning it in and emailing an electronic copy to our registrar ( or by mailing the form to the school at 11125 162nd Avenue NE, Redmond, WA  98052.
If you have any questions about this form, please contact Mr. Clark.

Answers available March 20th & April 3rd respectively

Math Challenge #11 & #12 are now available here .  During the school closure Math Challenges will be self-corrected at home, when the answers become available, by student and caregiver.  The solutions can be reached with the above link.  

When your student's Math Challenge is complete, please fill out and submit THIS  form to us.  Your student will then get credit for recognition awards.  If your student turned in a paper copy of Math Challenge #11 to their teacher before the school closure, please fill out the form for MC #11 as we may not have received their paper.

Please feel free to try more questions than the minimum required for your grade level in order to qualify. Grab some friends and family and work on the challenges together!

Previous Math Challenges are also available with above link for further math enrichment at home.  Please reach out to us with any questions.

Let the challenge begin!
