Con los cambios de temperatura, queremos enviar esta notificación anual sobre los posibles cambios en nuestros horarios escolares normales. Si es necesario cerrar las escuelas o comenzar tarde debido al clima, estas decisiones son para todo el distrito y todas las escuelas.

Ice is Never 100% Safe ­ Stay Off the Ice!

Colder temperatures may freeze some water but ice is NEVER 100% safe for people or animals! Don’t trust the ice ­ it doesn’t get cold enough here, or stay cold enough here for safe ice.

El hielo nunca es 100% seguro. ¡Manténgase alejado del hielo!

Las temperaturas más frías pueden congelar un poco de agua, ¡pero el hielo NUNCA es 100% seguro para personas o animales! No confíe en el hielo, no hace suficiente frío aquí, o se mantiene lo suficientemente frío aquí para un hielo seguro.

Quick, easy & good for the environment too!

*Do You Have a School Year Calendar?
It shows you when school is closed, students are released early (at 11:40 am), etc. Please see the attached 1 page calendar here: https://www.edmonds.wednet.edu/cms/one.aspx?portalid= 306754&pageid=1721873 or ask for a paper calendar in the school office.
