Looking toward the future
At Snohomish School District, we are proud of having great schools where our kids get a top-grade education. We are also focused on making sure our students – no matter where they live – have the same access to safe, modern school buildings. This year we plan to ask voters to consider a school funding measure to help rebuild aging elementary schools, reduce use of portable classrooms and make sure our school buildings continue to be a source of pride for our community. Look for more details this fall.

District implements new visitor, volunteer management system
We are excited to share that we are implementing the SafeVisitor Solutions check-in/check-out and volunteer registration system across our district. Some of our schools started using this system in the Spring 2019, and we plan to have this system fully implemented district-wide by the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The new system allows us to screen volunteers and visitors and provides us with a visitor-log. When entering our buildings, all adult visitors will be required to provide a Washington state driver’s license or other photo ID. In the event of an emergency/evacuation, it is important to have an accurate visitor log. Approved volunteers and visitors are welcome in our schools. Our goal is to keep everybody safe while maintaining a welcoming environment.
In 2019, the Washington State Legislature passed a bill that removes the personal and philosophical option to exempt children from the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine required for school and child care entry.
The bill takes effect July 28, 2019 and applies to public and private schools and child cares. The law removes the option for a personal/philosophical exemption to the MMR vaccine requirement for schools and child cares. It also requires employees and volunteers at child care centers to provide immunization records indicating they have received the MMR vaccine or proof of immunity.
