    Letter from the Superintendent - August 13, 2021

    As we continue our preparations for the coming year, I want to assure our families that our #1 priority is safely returning our students to our schools and classrooms full time. As we continue to finalize those back-to-school plans, health and safety remain the utmost priority. And as we work hard to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff, we are working hard to balance that with creating as normal as possible school environment.

    As we work through the details of the return to school, I want you to be aware that our district continues to have regular discussions with the Snohomish Health District, Washington Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal’s office and leadership from other school districts in Snohomish County and the region.

    Some current examples of decisions that have been made and communicated to us by the Washington State Department of Health are included in this letter.

  • Message from Superintendent Kultgen

    Message from Superintendent Kultgen

    June 3, 2020 - In response to recent events across the country, I want our community to know that as a district, we do not condone racism, injustice, bigotry, or hate. Our students, families, and staff of color are an integral part of the fabric of our community, and they are valued. Their voices, stories, and lives matter to us. Specifically, I am deeply saddened by the death of George Floyd – a heartbreaking reminder of the African-American community’s continued struggle against racism.
