Strike Update 9/9/15

9/9/15 PTA update
Negotiations between SEA and SPS will continue tomorrow – there is no school on Thursday, Sept 10th.  According to the SPS website, there is no school until further notice.
The Welcome Coffee Hour is still planned to occur on the rescheduled first day of school in the gymnasium after drop off.  But, the PTA General Meeting for Fri, 9/11 has been cancelled, and the Kindergarten Playdate for Sat, 9/12 has been cancelled.  If school has not begun by Tues, 9/15, Curriculum Night will be cancelled.
We will update our website,, as soon as we have any word on when school will officially begin.
Childcare options include:
  • Pacific Science Center
  • Alpha Martial Arts
  • TGA of Greater Seattle
  • Wedgwood Drama School
  • Sylvan of Seattle
  • Squirrelly Art Studio + Gift Workshop
  • Creative Coding 4 Kids
  • Ravenna Community Center
  • Northgate Community Center
  • Meadowbrook Community Center
In the meantime, many families have asked what they can do.  We suggest bringing breakfast, brunch and/or lunch to the teachers and staff picketing in front of our school.  Elizabeth Fletcher has offered to organize meals.  Please contact her at [email protected]com to find out how you can help.
