Message from Principal Shockley Regarding Return to In-Person Learning

The Edmonds School District is still working hard to finalize plans for re-opening on April 19th, and is processing the latest information from Governor Inslee. Please continue checking your e-mail and our school website for important information and announcements coming soon.

No Office Hours - March 29th and 30th

In order for our staff to prepare for reopening on April 19th, there will be no office hours available on Monday March 29th and Tuesday March 30th.

Early Release Day - March 31

A reminder to families that Wednesday, March 31st is an Early Release Day for students. Attendance will be taken, asynchronous work is expected but there will be no office hours in the afternoon.

Student Digital Daily Health Check Attestations

On Monday, March 22, the district changed the digital daily health attestation requirements for students.


While families will continue to receive a personalized health attestation link for each of their students via email on a daily basis, families only need to fill them out on days their student will attend in-person learning or on-site activities.

2021 - 2022 Registration

Students and Families:


Course selection for next year was due on Friday, March 19. Counselors are trying to reach out to students who have not completed this process. However, soon, we will have no choice but to start creating student schedules for those who did not complete this process. All student schedule requests will be finalized no later than Friday, March 26.


Please note:

1. If we do not have enough course requests for your student, we will add the core classes and electives

2. Your student will be held to these course requests because we rely on student request data to determine any classes that must be cancelled due to low interest, as well as how many sections of a course we offer.

3. All registration information and steps to complete this process are on our website.


We ask that all families check with their students to make sure they have completed the registration process this weekend.

Attention Spring Sports Athletes!

We look forward to the start of our season on Tuesday, March 30th . Make plans to be at your first day of try-outs/practice at the following locations and times:



We look forward to seeing you and starting another great season at Meadowdale. Go Mavs!

Meadowdale Choir Resilience Project

In response to these challenging times, we are all asked to demonstrate resilience in different ways. Since our choirs first gathered together online in the fall, we have been exploring, discussing, and creating music to strengthen our own resolve in the face of these difficult circumstances. Please take a moment to check out our work at meadowdaleresilience.org and feel free to share it with anyone that might benefit from a little musical inspiration these days. Thanks!
