Important school safety message

The October 24 tragedy at Marysville-Pilchuck High School is another reminder of the challenges we face in the community and world in which we live. As many of us watch the news reports and read social medial about this incident, it’s natural for each of us to struggle to understand how something like this could happen. It’s also natural at a time like this that we think about the safety of our own children. The safety of students in Snohomish is our highest priority.

Roll up those sleeves

The SSD Annual Blood Drive will be held Friday, November 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the RSC Training and Board Rooms.

 

Our community has benefited from the generosity of the Snohomish School District’s successful past blood drives. All blood types are needed to help ensure there is an ample blood supply for the upcoming holiday and any potential emergencies.

 

This year we have more than 50 openings for people to sign up to give blood at this on-site opportunity to serve our community. We share this opportunity with our staff, students and community – so please pass the word along. Appointments begin at 10 a.m. and run every 15 minutes until 3:45 p.m.

 

Did you know?

  • One pint of blood can potentially save up to four lives.
  • If a donor is on antibiotics, they must have completed their dose of medicine and be symptom free for three days.
  • More than 900 people need to donate blood every day in Western Washington to provide enough blood to supply the 70+ hospitals and clinics in our area.

For Information and to sign up, contact Tami Morse at (360) 563-7285 or via e-mail at tami.morse@sno.wednet.edu.

 

Thank you all again in advance for making this such a success each year!  Our district is truly a great example to other communities.
