Last Day of School – Thursday, June 27, 2019
This past February’s historic snowfall created many challenges for our community and school system. Now that it appears our snowy winter weather is subsiding, we can communicate the remainder of our school year calendar. In accordance with our negotiated
agreements and approved 2018-19 school year calendar, the six days of school missed due to weather will be added to the end of the current school year calendar.
The last day of school is now Thursday, June 27th. High School Graduation dates will not change.
Every school district in our region has a unique set of circumstances related to how they might make up snow days. As a result, you will see districts implementing different plans. Options such as built in snow make-up days, conversion of non-student professional
development days, state waivers or renegotiating instruction time are not viable options for the ISD this year. With this recent snow event resetting our common experience, the District is exploring opportunities to build in more snow day make-up options to
our future calendars. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible.

We are continuing to have a lot of students with colds, coughs, fevers and the flu. Please be reminded that kids need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
If your child will not be in school for any reason, please email
SHATTENDANCE@ISSAQUAH.WEDNET.EDU. It is important to email every day your child will be out of school. As a courtesy, you may want to email your child's teacher as well, however it is
the office that tracks attendance.
