WEST SEATTLE MICRO-SCHOOL FAIR: 5 pm today, online. Register here. The announcement:
With some West Seattle schools like Little Pilgrims closing permanently, most others focused on remote learning, and some bigger center-based programs experiencing COVID scares, new neighborhood schooling options are emerging as the community looks for safer options. Parents are invited to a community event to learn about childcare and school options now or to learn about joining the waitlist for programs next year. All featured programs have a 8:1 or smaller child/parent ratio and follow strict CDC guidelines for schools/childcare programs. The event will feature different types of programs with a wide range of rates, including:
-half day/full day outdoor-focused programs (forest school) in Schmitz Park and other local parks
-half day/full day preschool programs
-half day/full day early elementary K-4th grade micro-schools and virtual programs
-virtual micro-school options

SDOT MEETING ABOUT 26TH SW: As noted in the Delridge road project’s most recent bulletin, a proposal for “diverters” where the 26th SW greenway crosses Brandon and Genesee is back – or, the city could convert that stretch into a no-through-vehicle-traffic “Stay Healthy Street.” An online community meeting is planned tonight at 6:30 pm – find the connection info by scrolling down the project page and looking for the section headed “Upcoming meeting about adjacent Delridge Neighborhood Greenway.”
DISTRICT 1 COMMUNITY NETWORK: 7 pm tonight, this West Seattle/South Park coalition has two major agenda items – talking with City Councilmember Lisa Herbold and discussing the bridge. The meeting link is here, or call 253-215-8782, meeting ID 894 3131 0146 and password 422860 for either option.
