No School - Teacher Walkout

Seattle Public Schools teachers have voted to walk out on Tuesday, May 19, effectively canceling school for that day. To make up for the day, the district has altered the calendar so that Monday, June 15, will become a full school day and the last day of school will be Tuesday, June 16, with a one-hour early dismissal. 

The walkout was scheduled after the Seattle Education Association (SEA) voted to join in a statewide action against the Legislature to protest the lack of education funding. The SEA represents teachers in our district. While school will be canceled on May 19, previously scheduled interscholastic competitions will take place after what would have been regular school hours.
