Bike to School Day: Just a brief reminder to be extra careful on the roadways this fine Wednesday. It’s Bike to School Day 2015.
Teacher walkout: Seattle Public School teachers have set May 19th as the date they’ll join districts from around the state in a series of walkouts to protest tight purse strings in Olympia… and Washington D.C., for that matter: The Seattle Education Association (SEA) has voted to join in a statewide action against the legislature to protest the lack of education funding in our state. SEA is the organization of professionals and union that represents teachers in our district. This protest involves a one-day walkout.
New bell times: Seattle Public Schools is looking for feedback on its three proposals for a new bell schedule starting next school year. Best part of the proposal is that one of the options is to do nothing. As part of the Seattle Public SchoolsBellTime Analysis, a survey is now available until May 10 for all parents, staff and members of the community to collect their input on possible belltime changes for schools. The District would like your input because a change in the start and end time for a school day has the potential to affect the entire community.Visit belltimes.www.seattleschools.org to take the survey in one of ten available languages.
