Are you ready for winter?

Are you prepared for winter? The Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management suggests that you should expect the worst and be prepared. Stock up on extra food, medicine and other high-demand consumables; keep gutters, drains and ditches free of leaves and debris; trim deadwood branches from trees and get yourself a good snow shovel.


Below are important district links and information to help you prepare. We encourage you to print out and familiarize yourself with this important information:

Swim for Life offers free swim lessons to all district 2nd graders

Swim for Life is offering every 2nd grader enrolled in the Snohomish School District a free session of swim lessons at the Snohomish Aquatic Center for the 2015-2016 school year. (Note: Sessions are typically 4 or 5 weeks long, and classes are offered once or twice a week.) This community program is being funded through generous donations raised through Swim for Life. Thank you Swim for Life! Swim for Life, a nonprofit organization, was recently formed by local community members who have a passion for enriching the lives of young people in our community. Its mission is to make young people safer in the water through its partnership with the Snohomish Aquatic Center.


The Snohomish Aquatic Center strives to provide a FUN environment in which children can play, learn, and grow, with safety being the primary focus. The progressive learn-to-swim program is designed to help swimmers of all ability levels become safe and proficient in the water, teach essential water safety skills, include opportunities for in-session advancement, and work around busy schedules. The skills learned will carry throughout the lives of many, ensuring healthy and safe habits.


If you are the parent of a district 2nd grader, please reference the following documents on how to enroll your child in the program:
