(WSB file photo)

We’ve already mentioned the first local school to start the 2022-2023 year – Summit Atlas, the charter middle/high school, began classes on August 17th. For students at Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien, now the nearest parochial high school, last Thursday was Day 1. Then today, 1st through 12th graders in the Vashon Island School District – which has many students who ferry from West Seattle – started their school year. Here are the dates we found on other schools’/districts’ online calendars:

August 30 – Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School
August 31 – Vashon Island School District
August 31 – Hope Lutheran School
September 1 – Highline Public Schools
(1st-12th grades)

September 6 – Holy Rosary Catholic School
September 7 – Seattle Public Schools
(1st-12th grades)

    Man – I wish Seattle & HighLine districts would sync up their schedules.

    For Seattle, time to fire up the “will they strike” coverage.  Seems to be no teacher contract with nine days to go.

      Thank you! We included all the SPS campuses in those two dates above for SPS 1-12th graders and SPS kindergarteners, but individual school shoutouts always welcome, and please let us know of any school events/happenings of community interest throughout the year!

Sorry, comment time is over.
