Butter Braids Fundraiser

All students should receive a unique link that will take a customer directly to the ordering page that will be credited to your child. Please contact twincitypta@gmail.com if you do not receive a email link. You may need to check junk/spam folders.


All Orders Due: Sunday, December 13


Delivery Date: Thursday, December 17 from 3:30-5:00 – make a plan!

Students are responsible for picking up and delivering all orders. Remember, these items are frozen. However, they can be outside of a freezer for 2-3 hours if necessary. Please try to deliver all orders as soon as possible so there is not a long delay for customers. Many people order Butter Braids to bake during the holiday season!


The proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward enrichment for students. In January we look forward to beginning some extracurricular opportunities.

Big picture

iSprowt Science Assembly

On December 9 at 10:00 your child is invited to a science assembly by iSprowt where they will complete two science experiments. This assembly funding is thanks to Blane Hildenbrand for his donated award from the Awesome Foundation.


The kits will be handed out this week to our AA and BB Hybrid students at school. Distance Learning students, Grade 4, and Grade 5 online, please stop by school on to pick one up next week before the assembly. iSprowt will offer 20% off for any family who wishes to purchase additional science experiment kits.

Health Protocols

Families have asked what the protocol is when a school has a confirmed case of COVID 19. The district immediately contacts the school nurse and the Snohomish or Island County Health District. The Snohomish Health District has provided the following documents for families.

We also have protocols in place for students/staff who are ill. When students or staff display the following symptoms, they must go or stay home:

  • Fever/Chills

  • Lost of taste/smell

  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle Aches/Pains (not attributable to other causes)

  • Headache (not attributable to other causes)

  • Congestion/Runny nose (not attributable to other causes)

  • Cough

  • Nausea/vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Sore throat


When students/staff have these symptoms, they must stay home for 10 days or until they have a negative COVID test.


We need to reiterate schools are casualties of increased rates of transmission within the community. We have become aware of students spending time together off-campus, in unmasked social situations. This has the potential to increase transmission rates, thus impacting the district’s ability to bring back more students. We are reminding everyone that it is essential to wear masks, maintain social distancing, avoid indoor in-person gatherings outside of immediate family, and practice good hand hygiene. If a social gathering must occur, these gatherings should be held outside.
