  • Message from the Superintendent - May 24, 2022

    Message from the Superintendent - May 24, 2022

    District families –

    It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of yet another school shooting, this one in Uvalde, Texas, a community population about the size of Snohomish. Reports at this time note that this incomprehensible and horrific act took the lives of 14 students and one teacher with others injured. 

    As many of us watch the news reports about this incident, it’s natural for each of us to struggle to understand how something like this could happen. It is also natural for each of us to think deeply about the safety of students and staff in our own schools and classrooms. I want to assure you that the safety of those in our schools and buildings is our highest priority.

    The district has many safety practices and protocols in place, but one of the most important is the partnership between our families and our schools. Open communication is critical to the safety and well-being of our students and your children. Be observant and let us know if you see or hear something that makes you feel uncomfortable, nervous or frightened.

    I encourage you to please contact us if you have a concern or question about district and school policies or procedures.

    Sincerely,
    Kent Kultgen
    Superintendent

    Message from the Superintendent

    It has now been two years since the pandemic first closed schools, and much has transpired between March 2020 and now. What has not changed is our commitment to our students, staff and families. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for staying engaged and for persevering through the challenges. Looking back, although these times did put a strain on our community, I’m confident we will be stronger as we continue to work together and move forward. Our kids are in school and are enjoying the activities that define their childhood.

    Last week we announced that beginning Saturday, March 12, face coverings/masks will become optional throughout the Snohomish School District. Monday, March 14, is the first day of instruction after the mandate is lifted.

    Again, thank you for your dedication. Thank you for supporting our schools. And most importantly, thank you for entrusting us with the education of your child … a responsibility that we do not take lightly.
