Let the Games Begin!

The Meadowdale High School Athletics Department is extremely proud of all the hard work and diligence done by our student-athletes, coaches, and other staff members who have helped make the start of Fall sports this past week a success. Next week, our fall sports programs will have the opportunity to compete in contests! These will mark the first contests by a Maverick team since February 2020!


Check out meadowdaleathletics.com to view schedules for our teams. This is a new website, so here's a quick tutorial. If you want to look at our Varsity Boys Tennis schedule, for instance, hover over "Fall" on the top ribbon of the website, then click on "Varsity" under "Boys Tennis."


Alternatively, you can check out ArbiterLive to look at both game and practice schedules.


No spectators will be allowed at contests at this time.


Information regarding Live Streaming of contests coming soon!

Purchase "Fan Cutouts" for Athletic Contests

In accordance with state/local health and safety guidelines, spectators at high school sporting events are limited or not allowed. Although you may not be able to support them in person, you can still support Edmonds School District high school student athletes by purchasing a fan cutout sign and being a ‘Fan in the Stands.'

Spanish Interpreter Number Change

Deseamos informarle que el número telefónico 1-844-373-1952 que se ha utilizado para acceder a un intérprete en español, dejará de funcionar a partir del 30 de enero de 2021. Si necesita asistencia en español, comuníquese con la escuela de su hijo y el personal le conectará con un intérprete. El distrito escolar de Edmonds está trabajando con empeño para activar otra línea telefónica en español en el futuro. Lo mantendremos informado. Agradecemos mucho su paciencia y comprensión.


We wish to inform you that the telephone number 1-844-373-1952 to access a Spanish interpreter will no longer be available after January 30, 2021. If you need assistance in Spanish, please contact your child's school and a staff member will connect you to an interpreter. The Edmonds School District is actively working to have another Spanish line in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

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!

After School Tutoring & Homework Help

For students who are interested in after school tutoring or homework help, Peer Tutors are available (virtually) to provide academic assistance in all subject areas. Bilingual Peer Tutors are also available to assist in Spanish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese & Korean.

Peer tutoring is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1:00 to 2:30pm; no sign-up is required! Drop-in and let us know how we can help!
