Classroom with colorful lockers and raised chairs on the tables

The Lake Washington School District is the second largest in the state of Washington with over 30,000 students covering the cities of Redmond, Kirkland and parts of Sammamish. Below is an update Lake Washington Superintendent Jon Holmen sent to families this evening about the latest developments in reopening schools.

I do implore every person or group charged with decision making in Washington state to do so based on science and data. Our students depend on decision makers across the state.

I engage with our public health officials almost weekly and continue to advocate for strong and decisive guidance that is holistically considerate of the impact of the current situation.
