FREE BOXES OF FOOD: Drive/ride/walk up to the West Seattle Eagles lot, expected to be available starting just after noon, while they last, All welcome. (4426 California SW) 11:59 AM UPDATE: We’re told the truck is running late and this isn’t expected to start until after 1:30 pm.

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.

    Hi, not sure but I didn’t see this about the west Seattle school  fair until just today. I feel it might be helpful to post important online classes a few days before they are going to occur. That would be helpful for people who have to plan their day a few days ahead of time. Maybe you did post it before and I didn’t see it.

      I didn’t know about it until one of the organizers emailed us at 11 pm last night.

    Sally, Organizer of the event here. Join us if you can! If that timing doesn’t work, if you still sign up on the link, we can send you a recap or recording of it. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
