APRIL 11TH - CHAT WITH A BOARD MEMBER AT LHHS
The Stanwood-Camano School Board wants to hear from you!
The Board of Directors typically sets a variety of dates, times, and locations to meet with constituents throughout the school year. Board members look forward to listening and learning about the communities' opinions, suggestions, and concerns. There is no agenda for these events; they are completely informal and anyone can attend.
In spring 2023, board members will hold chats at the following locations:
6-7 p.m. April 11: Director Al Schreiber at Lincoln Hill High School
6-7 p.m. May 2: Director Charlotte Murry at Stanwood Middle School
During the Chat with the Board events in Fall 2022, topics included curriculum, libraries, safety, early learning, language barriers, equity, and more.
A Spanish interpreter will be available.

Dangers of vaping
About 14% of U.S. high-school students and 3.3% of middle schoolers currently vape as of 2021, and the FDA and U.S. Surgeon General have declared it an epidemic. Research shows that vaping is dangerous, highly addictive, and harmful to a child’s health and brain development.
Frighteningly, vaping devices can also be manipulated and refilled with dangerous illicit substances, many of which can be harmful or deadly if used by an unsuspecting child. We are aware of the use of vaping devices in our community that have been laced with illegal drugs.
It is critical for families to talk with their children about the dangers of vaping and substance use. Our school administrators actively, in cooperation with our School Resource Officer, investigate and issue appropriate discipline and education on the dangers of vaping devices.
Ensuring the safety of students and staff requires an ongoing strong commitment to cooperation with our Stanwood-Camano families. As always, health and safety are our top priorities.
Find facts, information, and tips on how to talk with your teen about vaping at the American Lung Association website.
REMINDER: SUMMER SCHOOL OPPORTUNITY
