District asks state to approve one waiver day due to February snow
Snow coverer capital buildingThe Olympia School District has submitted a request to the state asking to waive one of the school days that were missed in February when all schools were closed due to snow.

The school board unanimously agreed at its March 25 meeting to direct staff to submit the one-day waiver request. If approved by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the last day of school will be Friday, June 21. The waiver will not change any of the district’s high school graduation dates – all will proceed as scheduled.

The state has indicated it will respond to the district’s one-day waiver request within one week. If approved, families will be notified in a variety of communications, including direct email, website and social media platforms. Additionally, school year calendars posted on the district website will be updated accordingly.
