District Update

September 10th, 2021

Welcome back!

You can't recreate the special energy that sparkles as students return to school each year. Students hopping off buses or climbing out of their family's car (or even driving themselves for the first time) ... they were all in a hurry to find their classrooms, meet their teachers and most importantly, reconnect with their friends.

We are so happy to be back in session and can't wait to see the amazing things our students do in 21-22!

SWHS Athletics Ticket Information

Tickets can now be reserved at: https://swhscubsden.com/event-tickets

Home games will be free through September 17th and available for purchase starting on Sept. 20. Attendees must reserve tickets so the high school can follow capacity restrictions for events at SWHS. Also, a helpful reminder that masks must be worn by all spectators for indoor events and are recommended for outdoor events that exceed a 500 person capacity.

SWHS sudents who qualify for the free/reduced meal program also qualify for free SWHS ASB cards. With the ASB card, students will gain free admission to events and that student’s family will qualify for up to 5 free passes to events as well. If you have not completed the consent form, please do so as quickly as possible. Once ASB cards are purchased, there will be no refunds on those cards.

Reminder: All elementary and middle school students must be accompanied by an adult at all high school events. Please do not drop off children at the games unchaperoned. Please also remind students they should follow the same behavior codes as school.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

All students who choose to learn in-person are required to wear face coverings while indoors to protect the health and safety of our staff and students. We are also implementing enhanced personal hygiene and a degree of physical distancing among students to the extent possible.

Sedro-Woolley School District is reopening with the safety measures required by the Department of Health in the K-12 COVID-19 Requirements.

Please note, there is not a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for students currently in Washington state. We would encourage those 12 and older to talk to their health-care providers for vaccination recommendations.
