  • December Cultural Awareness and Recognitions

    December Cultural Awareness and Recognitions

    Perhaps with several major holiday celebrations during December, no recognitions were identified for the month according to PTA.org. As with most other months, there are daily observances which have been identified. One of these is the International Day of Person's with Disabilities on December 3. According to un.org, disability is a condition or function judged to be significantly impaired relative to the usual standard of an individual of their group. Referred to as “the world’s largest minority,” persons with disabilities have generally poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities, and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities.

    Partner with us for healthy schools

    In the last several weeks, we have had several students coming to school with symptoms of respiratory and other illnesses. Because these illnesses spread quickly through the classroom, we are asking you to observe the following guidelines when deciding whether to send your child to school.

  • School Module

    School Module

    Snohomish School District is changing how we manage student immunization records. We are now using the School Module, an online system provided by the Washington State Department of Health. The School Module allows us to quickly and efficiently check if your child has the vaccines required for school. This will save us time on finding and entering vaccination dates and free up time to work with students. Most children born and/or vaccinated in Washington already have their information in the system. You can access your child’s record at any time by signing up for MyIR at https://wa.myir.net/register. As we move to this system, the school nurse may ask you for more information about your child’s vaccination history. If your child is missing vaccines in the system, we may ask for a copy of their immunization record. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your school nurse.

  • Fall Panorama survey

    Fall Panorama survey

    With the school year well underway, we are asking our 3rd through 12th grade students to again participate in the Panorama survey for social-emotional learning. For elementary, the questions center on their current knowledge, how they feel about the school environment, and whether they have access to staff and resources to feel safe and successful. For secondary, the questions center on the same areas and further explore whether students feel they have the skills, opportunity, or ability for personal and academic growth along with social awareness and positive relationships. The survey window will be open for two weeks from October 17-31. Survey results will be available approximately two weeks after the survey window closes, which places us around November 14. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's principal.

    The district is continuing to work on ways to minimize the impact of the existing labor shortage on our bus driver workforce.
