Dear Einstein families:
Thanks to our families and your students for your patience today as we dealt with a power outage today affecting Einstein.
Seattle City Light is making repairs to a power feed line at our school. We do have limited backup systems, so classes remained in session as usual, and our food service was able to serve lunch as well.
City Light and our maintenance staff kept the District and our school informed throughout the day. They estimate that power will be off until later this afternoon or evening, so we canceled afterschool and athletic practices today.
The safety of our students is paramount at all times, just as it is with you. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Stephanie Clark, Principal
The power outage at Einstein Middle School is expected to continue for the rest of the day. Crews are on site making repairs. Classes remain in session on regular schedule. Lunch will be served. There will be no after school athletic practices or after-school activities today.
School is open and will run as usual. Part of our power is out. We are working to restore it as quickly as possible. Thanks for your understanding.
Over the past year the Shoreline School District has been keeping a close watch on our increasing enrollment. While this is a positive sign after many years of declining enrollment this trend does present some challenges to our schools. As a result of:
- Increased enrollment
- Space constraints particularly at the elementary level
- Anticipated future growth
the Shoreline School District has carefully come to the following decision:
In accordance with Policy 3141 and 3141P, in which admittance of non-resident students shall take into consideration classroom and program capacity to serve and not diminish educational opportunities and services to students of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park residents, the Shoreline School District is now closed to new non-resident boundary transfer applications for grades K-6 for the 2015-16 school year.
Current students with non-resident boundary transfers for the 2014-15 school year will be allowed to continue to attend the Shoreline School District unless the family moves or admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance. The District will reevaluate enrollment capacity prior to the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. At that time siblings of students with current non-resident boundary exceptions will be given priority should space become available.
The District will continue to honor all statutory and contractual obligations relating to non-resident boundary transfer applications for the children of District employees.
