Dear Wolves,

We are excited for this upcoming school year and looking forward to seeing all students in person. We have missed them! Regardless of whether this is the first time your student will be "joining the pack" or we are just simply welcoming them back, I am confident we will deliver an exceptional learning experience for all students. We do this by showing up every day positive and enthusiastic, building relationships with each student and helping them develop their own self efficacy. Our teachers will take the time to get to know each student as both people and learners, and then use this information throughout the year to meet their individual needs.

Here we go…

School Starts September 1st
Covid Safety Protocols
Our district continues to refine our COVID-19 Safety Plan based on the latest information and requirements from the CDC, L&I, the Washington State Department of Health, the King County Department of Health. You can always find our COVID resources by going to the LWSD homepage and then selecting Pathway Forward. Here is important information, safety measures we are implementing as we start our new school year, and a few changes from last year. For more information please read our COVID-19 Safety Plan.

  • Students must wear cloth masks that cover the mouth and nose while inside the school. 
  • We continue to ask that students remain home when sick, especially when they have any COVID symptoms.
  • We will continue to send students home if they develop COVID symptoms while at school.
  • We will continue to ask students to wipe their desks at the end of class.
  • Hand sanitizer will be in each classroom and in high traffic areas of our hallways.
  • Our custodians will continue to wipe high-touch areas every day.
  • We will be placing tables outside, so our students can spread out more during lunchtime.
  • During passing periods students sometimes stop and gather with friends in the hallway. We will continue to ask students to proceed to their next class.
  • Performing arts teachers have more specific guidance they will explain to their students.
  • We will continue to practice social distancing to the extent we can, knowing that with 2400 students there are times when this is just not possible. 

Changes from last year:
  • The vast majority of our students are fully vaccinated. Our vaccinated rate is higher than the King County average, which is higher than our state’s overall vaccination rate. 
  • Our state is requiring all staff to be vaccinated.
  • We are not asking students for daily attestation at this time. 
  • Students and staff are not required to wear a mask while outside. 
  • Fully vaccinated students and staff will not need to quarantine if they have been exposed or are close contacts as long as they have no symptoms. However, it might take a day to verify they are fully vaccinated. 
  • Fully vaccinated students and staff will need to quarantine if they develop COVID symptoms.
  • Fully vaccinated students and staff will need to quarantine if they test positive for COVID-19, even if they do not have any symptoms.
  • At this time we will not have all-school assemblies inside. We will have smaller assemblies inside and all-school assemblies outside where there is more space.
  • At this time we are not inviting large groups of parents inside for events. For example, Curriculum Night will be virtual this year. Smaller groups are OK for some activities and events.   

Our plans and procedures are intended to keep everyone safe as we operate a large high school during a pandemic. Our protocols continue to evolve as we learn more about this coronavirus. Thank you for your understanding and your support.

Class Schedules

Counseling sent an email out to students and parents late Friday with information regarding schedules and schedule change requests. Students will be able to view their schedule in Skyward and request a course change if they meet one of the following criteria: missing a period, missing a graduation requirement, wrong level placement, or are a Running Start or Wanic student with a schedule conflict. Students will submit their schedule change request via a Microsoft Form. The schedule change window will run Friday, August 27th after 3pm – Friday, September 3rd @ 2pm.

While counselors will be working on schedule requests as soon as possible, please know this takes time and there may still be some movement as we start school on Wednesday. Students are expected to view Skyward and attend the classes they are currently scheduled for. If you have a “see counselor” in your schedule for semester 1 ONLY, please come up to the counseling during that period.

New Student Registration Support Sessions

Counselors will be holding New Student Registration Support sessions next week in the main gym. This will be an opportunity to meet the counseling team and ask questions about courses and course selection.
