Power Outages and Snow Days!

POWER OUTAGES: Now that we are moving into the later fall and winter months, we can anticipate that utility outages will occur and this may interfere with remote learning. We have prepared a power outage plan that will be shared with our communities to let everyone know what to do in the event of electricity outages or network interruptions. Check out the plan by clicking here.

SNOW DAYS: As a result of being in remote learning, we are much better equipped to deal with inclement weather (think snow, ice, etc.) than when we were in a full face-to-face learning environment. We anticipate days when snowy or icy weather might require the district to operate on a late start schedule or close, school can still take place. Sorry kids!

Well Child Care Note from the School Nurse

Well-child care is important even during a pandemic. Checkups are valuable for growth, development, early detection, immunizations, behavior support, and learning success! Many clinics have adapted visits to keep patients safe during the pandemic. If you need help connecting with a primary health clinic, don't hesitate to contact the school nurse SHERMIN DAVIDSON at or (425) 431-3072.

Help Needed - MHS Senior Class Photos

The Meadowdale Staff is re-organizing and making improvements to our Alumni Wall. We have nearly every Senior Class photo dating back to our first graduating class in 1965, but we're missing a few. We need Senior Class photos from the following years: 1967, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1976. These senior class photos are not in the yearbook during those years. If you have access to these photos, or know someone who might, please have them contact Office Manager Sandra Seery at
