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 1, Director Charlotte Murry at Elger Bay Elementary
  • November 3, Director Al Schreiber at Stanwood Elementary
  • November 8, Director Miranda Evans at Utsalady Elementary

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.

Halloween Celebrations at our Schools

We know some students and families are excited to celebrate Halloween on Monday. Several events took place this week and may continue into next week, including a trunk-or-treat event Monday at Stanwood High for kids in fifth grade and younger. We ask that students and families keep safety in mind if they dress up at school. We look for students to be easily identifiable, even when wearing a costume. We also ask that no look-alike weapons be brought to school. We want to ensure a safe and fun learning environment on Halloween. I appreciate your cooperation.
