Invitation to Community Meeting on May 1st, 2017
Please join Seattle Public Schools at a community meeting on May 1 about the opening of Magnolia School.
The district’s Enrollment Planning team will share an overview of responses received about possible boundaries for Magnolia School, share data related to various scenarios requested by the community and the School Board, and learn more from community feedback.
No decisions have been made on Magnolia boundaries, or on boundary or program changes for other schools. The goal of this meeting is to share information and hear additional community feedback.
Date: Monday, May 1, 2016
Time: 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Location: McClure Middle School Gym, 1915 1st Avenue West
Background: Magnolia School is undergoing renovations and will open in fall 2018. The district is currently exploring scenarios for setting boundaries for the new school to help relieve current and future crowding at Catharine Blaine K-8, Coe Elementary, and Lawton Elementary.
A community meeting held in March was primarily attended by families from those three schools. Based on community feedback and requests from the School Board to include all Queen Anne elementary schools in the discussions, additional meetings were held with the Queen Anne Elementary and the Hay Elementary communities.
