Snow, snow, snow... will be here before you know it. Below are some important resources to be familiar with and keep handy in the event of inclement weather. Please note that the district's inclement weather information is also available at www.sno.wednet.edu/weather or on all school websites.
Internet bot threat
Wednesday, February 21 - Tonight at about 9:20 p.m. we were informed about an apparent online threat toward an entity identified as SHS. After speaking with law enforcement it was determined that this is an internet 'bot' message that has been sent internationally and nationally and has no merit. There is no student enrolled who has the name listed on this account. It is safe to send your kids to school tomorrow (weather pending) and we will have police and security on site at Snohomish High School as a precautionary measure.
Results indicate levies will pass
Thank you to all district voters who took part in the February 13 special election for two Snohomish School District replacement levy measures. We appreciate the community support. Preliminary results indicate that the Educational Programs and Operations Replacement Levy and the Replacement Levy for Instructional Technology Improvements will pass. Both items ensure critical funding for district programs and priorities. Final election results will be posted on Friday, February 23. In the meantime, additional updated results will be posted at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 22, on the Snohomish County elections website for those interested in following the returns.
Spring Into Kindergarten event
Mark your calendars for our Spring Into Kindergarten event. All 2018-2019 kindergarten families and students are highly encouraged to attend. Spring Into Kindergarten will be held on Wednesday, March 7, from 4–7 p.m. at district elementary schools. Families should return their kindergarten registration paperwork that day. Each school will also be conducting school tours and having important information available for families (WaKIDS, PTA/PTO/parent organizations, bus transportation, special services and more).
Teacher job fairs
Are you a soon-to-be certificated teacher or an established teacher looking to join a collaborative, welcoming culture? If so, Snohomish may be the place for you!
Learn more about us and the employment opportunities available on our website, or join us at one of the many upcoming job fairs we will be attending. We would love to meet you and help you decide if a Snohomish classroom is where you would like to call "home."
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Free ACT opportunity for district juniors
The Snohomish School District will be offering the American College Test (ACT) free of charge for all district high school juniors on April 24 during the school day. The test is voluntary; however, we strongly recommend that all of our juniors take the test. This is an amazing opportunity for students to take a college entrance exam at no cost to families and for our schools to collect data that will help improve student learning. As a district, offering free ACT reflects our commitment to eliminating barriers to career and college readiness. Students testing on April 24 at their high school will be registered by the district office. Therefore, registration is not required for the April 24 testing session. Students who take the ACT outside of the April 24 district-hosted testing will need to follow the ACT national testing process located at www.act.org. To learn more, contact your student’s high school or visit this link.
Student cooking competition returns
This year's annual Kids in the Kitchen/Junior Chef Competition event will be held Friday, April 27! District 4th - 6th grade students are invited to submit recipes for their favorite after-school snacks. The recipes, which must be submitted by Friday, February 23, do not have to be original. Student finalists will be selected from the submitted recipes and will be invited to prepare their culinary masterpieces at a Friday, April 27, event. A panel of judges will select the grand prize winners. Past award categories have included health-conscious foods; simple, kid-friendly preparation; fun food; and judge’s choice.
