DISTRICT/SCHOOL BOUNDARIES

As you have heard by now the District is looking at adjusting our school boundaries due to unbalanced enrollment. We work alongside a community group called the Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). Anyone can join this group; the next meeting is 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7, at Port Susan Middle School. We are reviewing the district’s projected enrollment through 2031, studying current overcrowding, and analyzing new boundary options to recommend to the school board in the spring. Please consider joining the CFAC or attending one of our community feedback sessions. We want your input! All of the details are HERE.

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)

    • Website

    • Flash Alert


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: Chat with a School Board Member

The School board wants to hear from you!


The Board of Directors is setting a variety of dates, times and locations to meet with their constituents throughout the school year. Board members look forward to listening and learning about the communities' opinions, suggestions, and concerns. There is no agenda for these events; they are completely informal and anyone can attend.

Listed below are upcoming fall dates - additional dates will be set later in the school year. All events start at 6:00 PM and will be held in the school library:


  • November 8, Director Miranda Evans at Utsalady Elementary

Teacher Contact Information

We are here to support every student in their learning. Below are teachers' contact information if you need to ask any questions or need assistance. Teachers are available for students before and after school as well. Please contact your teacher to arrange a time for additional assistance if needed.



For additional assistance, students can reach out to our counselor, Christy Thompson at cthompson2@stanwood.wednet.edu.

REMINDER: Chromebooks

It is important that students come to school with their Chromebooks fully charged everyday. Please make sure Chromebooks are plugged in every evening so that they will not need to be charged during the school day. Students will then not need to bring their Chromebook charger to school and risk losing it.


If you are having any troubles with your Chromebook not charging or the keys are not correct, please refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
