A message from the superintendent

Feb. 24, 2022

Dear Edmonds School District families and staff,

With more than 120 languages spoken within the Edmonds School District, we benefit from the different perspectives brought into our classrooms. Our district is made up of students, staff and families from nations and cultures from across the globe, including Ukraine and Russia.

Today, we are saddened by the escalating conflict involving Russia and Ukraine and we know this is personally affecting students, staff and families in the communities we serve.

We want any student feeling impacted by the current conflict to know we are here to help. Families are encouraged to reach out to their school office who can connect them to counseling support or other resources.

We are committed to supporting each and every student.

In partnership,

Dr. Gustavo Balderas
