    Driver shortage having impacts on district transportation

    The district is continuing to work on ways to minimize the impact of the existing labor shortage on our bus driver workforce. However, the shortage of bus drivers, combined with normal absences due to illness, has already created circumstances that potentially could have impacted district routes and schedules.

Your feedback will help us outline the goals for the future of the Snohomish School District. At each session, participants will discuss: What is Snohomish School District doing well? What could the Snohomish School District do to improve the outcome of the goals for our child/children? The majority of sessions will be held over Zoom.

  • School immunization reminder

    It is important to make sure your child goes to their regularly scheduled wellness appointments, which often include immunizations. The summer months are a great time to get your child caught up with immunization requirements before the 2022-2023 school year. Schedule your appointments early, as health care providers’ schedules quickly fill up in August and September. Make sure to turn in your updated immunization paperwork to the school by Wednesday, September 7.

  • Speak Up!

    Rather than focus on or highlight hate, we would like to take this opportunity to look at how we can continue to move forward and work to be better with one another. We can start with increasing our awareness of hate speech and engage in conversations around how to address it and support those impacted by it. To be clear, hate negatively impacts everyone.
