Bryant’s walkers were out in full force last Friday, with the beginning of International Walk to School Month: four walking bus stops offered treats and company to families getting to school on foot; a walking school bus picked up passengers in the neighborhood NW of Bryant; and over 130 students were counted as walkers that day. In fact, the kindergartners and 4th graders were tied for having the most walkers that morning – 28 each!

There will not be any Walktober events this coming Friday, due to no school. We will resume the festivities on Friday, Oct 21.

In the meantime, did you know that every intersection is considered a crosswalk, even if it is not marked? State law requires motorists to yield to a pedestrian at marked or unmarked crosswalks.

From the District: Survey for adjustments to 2017-18 schedule

Seattle Public Schools and Seattle Education Association are partnering to increase students’ access to core content, improve instruction and accelerate student achievement.

As part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement process, SEA and SPS agreed to add 20 minutes to the school day in 2017-18 and provide one hour per week of teacher collaboration time. As the district plans to make this schedule adjustment, we want to hear from families and stakeholders on how the additional time should be added and how and when to schedule the collaboration time.

You may provide feedback in one of two ways:

  1. Complete the online survey.
  2. Complete and turn in a paper-based survey at your child’s school

Review how your preferences would change your child’s schedule.

We appreciate your time.
