Superintendent Message, Year-end 20-21
Dear Auburn School District Families:
I want to thank you for making the best of a challenging year. Throughout the pandemic, our students and staff were resilient and put forth their best efforts in a variety of circumstances. I could not be more proud of the students, staff and families of the Auburn School District.
Our community has come together to support each other in numerous ways since the spring of 2020. Last weekend we were able to celebrate more than 1,100 seniors completing their K-12 education. It was a fantastic day for students and families. We will continue to look for ways to make meaningful connections so we can support each student for success beyond graduation.
We are thrilled to be planning to return in-person this fall. We are expecting almost 17,000 students in our 24 schools. In addition to welcoming students in-person, we also are offering Auburn Online School for students in grades 1-12. This is a new school to provide an online option for families. To learn more about Auburn Online or submit an enrollment request, visit our website.
As we plan for the upcoming year, we will continue to follow the Washington State Department of Health guidelines to keep students and staff healthy. We will keep you posted on impacts to our planning.
We learned a lot during the last 15 months. We learned new ways of teaching, innovative ways to connect with families and how resilient we are. It hasn’t been easy, but we are succeeding together.
I hope you and your family are able to enjoy the summer with some fun and relaxation. I look forward to connecting with you in the fall.
