Superintendent's Message

As we enter 2018, we are enthusiastic about what the New Year holds for our District.
 
In late 2017, we welcomed two new members to our School Board of Directors: Seth Basford and Ray Wiseman. Both of these individuals bring unique qualities that will serve our students and schools well. We honor all of our Board of Directors this month for the work that they do to ensure high quality education is possible for all of our East Valley students.
 
As many of you may know, our East Valley High School Modernization and Expansion project was put on hold last August after legislators were unable to compromise on the Hirst Water Bill, which had been attached to the State Capital Budget. We are excited to announce that on January 18, 2018, the State Legislature came to an agreement and the Capital Budget was passed. With this exciting news, we are preparing to move forward with putting our high school project out to bid and anticipate construction to begin soon. We thank you for your patience  and understanding as we have endured this long process and look forward to sharing our progress on this project throughout the year.
 
On the February 2018 election ballot, residents of East Valley will notice that the School District is requesting a 3- year replacement Educational Support & Operations Levy.  Voters will need to return mail-in ballots by February 13, 2018. We encourage voters to become educated on the details of this levy by reading, LEVY FACTS, on pages 4-5.
 
Our District continues to focus on providing safe and secure schools for our students, staff and community. We encourage community members to stay engaged in this process by anonymously reporting incidents and concerns. To report crimes, bullying or other safety risks, please visit Safe Schools. This reporting site operates 24 hours a day, 7 days per week and automatically notifies District Administrators of every concern logged. You may access this site at https://evsd90-wa.safeschoolsalert.com/.
 
We know that the impending Rattlesnake Ridge landslide may have many families and community members concerned. Please rest assured knowing that we are in constant contact with the Office of Emergency Management and have been evaluating what the potential impact could be for our schools and community. We are preparing our schools and staff members with how to best support our students, families and community if difficulties should arise due to this unfortunate event.

Cherie Trammell - Paraeducator, Terrace Heights Elementary

On the playground students flock to Mrs. Trammell to share stories of their day; in the classroom, she leads them to success! Mrs. Cherie Trammell has worked for the East Valley School District as a Paraeducator in our elementary schools for 25 years. She grew up in the Valley and chose to work in our District because of the, “...supportive community and how caring everyone at Terrace Heights is.” Of her job she has said, “ The most rewarding part is...the kids and watching them grow as I work with them.” Cherie Trammell deserves an A+ for her dedication to our students, our schools and our East Valley community.

Flu and Other Illness Information:

Dear Parents: There is currently a high rate of flu and other illnesses in our valley. Please watch your children for symptoms and keep them home if they are experiencing fever, body aches, headache, excessive coughing, stomach ache, vomiting or diarrhea. In addition, keep your child home for 24 hours after symptoms resolve. Please call your child’s school to report their illness if they stay home from school. This would also be a good time to encourage frequent hand washing.
