Grading Session 5 Ends Monday
REMINDER: Credit Retrieval
Help us plan for the future
The school district has launched a brief survey to gather as many voices, opinions, and thoughts from throughout the community that will help plan the district’s future. In addition to sparing a few moments to take the survey, please share the link widely throughout the community. The more responses, the better!
This district is asking the community to share feedback about the local school system that will help guide ongoing work and plan next steps. The survey should take about 10 minutes, and all results will be anonymous.
Again, please share the link with your friends and neighbors who may not receive communication from us.
Stay safe on the bus
To keep everyone safe on school buses and to abide by state law, please follow these guidelines while on a bus:
All items — such as sports equipment, instruments, and metal water bottles — must be completely secured inside of a closed bag or instrument case.
The bus is considered an extension of the school day, and students are expected to behave in a way that is consistent with school/classroom expectations.
We appreciate your help in making sure that our students continue to stay safe on the bus and following state law so our school buses remain in service.
Please contact us with any questions.
Help us honor a staff member
To show our appreciation for certificated and classified employees, we are proud to accept nominations for a Certificated or Classified Employee of the Month award September through March.
One certificated and one classified employee are selected monthly. All award recipients will be considered for the Certificated and Classified Employee of the Year awards presented in May. Nominations are welcome from parents, community members, peers, administrators, and students.
Please let us know about some of the great deeds our staff are doing! Share personal examples of the dedication, commitment and passion these individuals have portrayed working for the Stanwood-Camano School District.

The Stanwood-Camano School District, through a grant from T-Mobile’s Project 10Million, has hotspots available to those students who do not have internet access available at their homes and need service to extend their learning.
The hotspot allows for 100GB of data. That’s enough data for 140 hours of streaming school videos or 5,000 hours of internet research or 200 hours of online college test prep!
Please let your school know if this is a need your student has.

ANNUAL ACTION PLAN (AAP)
REMINDER: Partnering in Student Success
Supporting Student Success:
Our teachers work hard to support students academically everyday. Partnering with students and parents/guardians in this work is very important. Supporting students in staying caught up on their work and turning in any missing assignments is very important not only for student learning, but also in maintaining grades that will earn credits towards graduation.
Below are some steps you can take at home to support students academically:
- Review any missing assignments with your student by having your student login to their Skyward account. Locate the missing work and support your student in completing it. You may reach out to teachers with any questions you have.
- Review assignments with low scores and have students ask their teachers how they can redo an assignment or retake an assessment to show their new learning to earn a better grade.
- Arrange a time for students to get additional time and support from their teacher. Please refer to the Student Support section below in this newsletter for days of the week students can stay after school for additional support. (NOTE: If a specific day/time does not work in the student's schedule based on the teacher schedule below, please contact the teacher to find another day/time that will work).
Content Support Days (2:10 - 2:40 PM)
Thursday: S.S. / Mr. Clack's Elective Classes
We see our students working hard everyday and we are here to support them in their learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers if you have any question.
REMINDER: INCLEMENT WEATHER
As the weather forecasts indicate, we may see cold weather this winter. Our Superintendent, Dr. Rumbaugh, has shared with everyone how we make the determination to delay or close schools due to ice, snow, flooding, etc.
Safety first! We consider the safety of our children on buses, our student drivers, families driving and walking to school, and the safety of our staff, especially our bus drivers.
We monitor weather patterns using multiple methods 24/7. In particular, we use a tool called Accuweather that is specifically designed to support school districts in looking ahead at weather patterns.
When there is a concern about school starting on time, our staff begins driving the roads throughout the district as early as 2 a.m. We take photos, check road conditions, monitor traffic, look for hazards, etc. We typically drive the roads multiple times in the early morning to determine if conditions are improving, worsening, or staying the same.
We strive to decide about the school day by 5 a.m. Once the decision is made, we begin communicating with families and staff. We communicate through:
Autodialer (via School Messenger)
Email (via School Messenger)
Predicting the weather is a challenge, and our primary goal is to ensure that the roads are safe, our campuses are easy to navigate, and the weather does not impede a safe school day.
REMINDER: Closed Campus
