Preparing for the 2020-2021 School Year

August is already here and our minds have started to turn to school starting in September. We know that the start of the 2020-2021 school year will be different than in years past. While things are still in flux, here is what we know so far:

  • Remote learning will be the standard for the start of the 2020-2021 year.
  • Students will be taught from teachers at their local school.
  • The Lake Washington School District is working on finalizing the plan for fall. Weekly updates are posted on the Return to School Task Force page.
  • The Juanita Elementary PTA Board Members are in contact with the school administration and are discussing ways we can serve our students and teachers during remote learning and throughout the new school year.

We plan to update this site and our Facebook page as we learn more details about the return to school plans and activities for the remaining of the school year

Mark your calendars: Internet Safety Night is Back!

The Juanita Elementary PTA is excited to be once again sponsoring this FREE educational session to learn about ways to keep your kids safe online. Stefanie Thomas has experience working with law enforcement in the area of online exploitation of children. Topics include: Cyber Bullying, Social Media use, Online Gaming, Sexting, Cell Phone and general internet safety tips.

This event is open to the larger community. We expect the discussion to center around sensitive topics so this event may not be suitable for younger children.
Stephanie will also be visiting our upper grade students and giving them a similar, age appropriate presentation.
