Message to Families - January 19, 2022
I recognize this is a late hour to be receiving this communication, and some of you may not read this until tomorrow, but I did not want to delay in getting out this message. If you have not heard, there was a local media report today of a video and audio clip taken at a basketball game this last weekend between Capital High School and River Ridge High School. This video/audio clip was shared on social media, circulated, and part of a story on KIRO news radio.

Weather related milk shortage for school meals
The Olympia School District, along with many districts in the state, is having difficulty obtaining the delivery of our milk order. With severe weather conditions the past 10 days, and the mountain passes being closed repeatedly, the distribution of available products is disrupted. We are working to find alternate suppliers to ensure that all schools have ample milk for breakfast and lunch. However, as this supply chain continues to recover, over the next week schools may need to offer bottled water, instead of milk. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Technology & Safety Replacement Levy Election 2022
The Olympia School Board has unanimously agreed to place a Technology and Safety Replacement Levy proposal before voters on the February 8, 2022 Special Election ballot. ​ The proposed replacement levy is not a new tax. It would replace an expiring four-year technology and safety levy approved by voters in February 2018. The levy would raise an estimated $52.4 million over four years (2023-2026). ​ “This replacement levy proposal reflects a continuation of our strategic planning efforts to make technology accessible to all students and prepare them for success now and into the future,” said School Board President Scott Clifthorne. “It also proposes investments to enhance safety and security at every school site.”
