School canceled on Monday, May 11; make-up day scheduled for May 22

Dear Shoreline School District Families:

The Shoreline Education Association (SEA), the union representing our teachers, and the Shoreline Educational Support Professionals Association (SESPA), the union representing our school support staff, have voted to participate in a one-day walkout on May 11, 2015.

Union leadership has been in contact with the District regarding this action and has emphasized that this is not a strike against the District, students, families or our community, but rather a way for staff to show solidarity with their colleagues across the state and send a message to legislators about the importance of adequate educational funding. We agree that the state has failed to fully fund K-12 education and must live up to its responsibility as mandated by the State Supreme Court.

As a result of the one-day walkout, the Shoreline School District is canceling school on Monday, May 11, 2015. The following activities will proceed as scheduled on May 11: AP testing; high school and middle school athletic practices and contests; and facility rentals. The Shoreline Children’s Center will be open for its regular preschool programs, but the extended day sites at our schools will be closed. Please check individual school websites for evening activities. Schedules for state assessments currently underway will be adjusted at the school level.

Due to school being canceled on May 11, a make-up day is now scheduled for Friday, May 22, a previously scheduled non-student day.

The District will keep you posted on new developments if they arise. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that canceling school on May 11 may cause to you and your family.

If you have any questions, please send them to us at public.info@shorelineschools.org or contact the Public Information Office at 206-393-4412.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Miner, Superintendent

For all students who have not yet updates their iPads, here are the instructions for making that happen.

  1. Plug into power. iOS updates always work better when the device in connected to a power source. This is true for your phones as well.
  2. Next, go to the settings menu
    General tab
    Software updates
  3. There you will see any system software waiting or a message saying you are up to date.
    If the iOS update for 8.2 is waiting, click either download and install or install.
    If it has to download and install it will take longer. Depending on your network, it can take 20 minutes to download. If it is just waiting to install, that should only take about 10 minutes.
  4. You will be asked for your passcode if you have one active on your device.
  5. Follow screen instructions once the install has finished.

It’s just that easy.
