February 2018
Dear Community Members, 

I hope your 2018 is off to a fantastic start! 

There are so many things happening and changing in the world around us. Here are just a few that are having a direct impact on our school district: 

Our new Middle School construction project is nearly complete, and we are working through a final list with our contractor. We are eager to show off our new school to our community and will let you know as soon as we set a date for a dedication and open house! 

Hockinson’s student numbers continue to climb, so we are assessing our facilities resources and needs district wide, and updating our facilities plan to be ready to meet Hockinson’s future. 

During the 2017 session our state Legisla¬ture made major changes to school funding, and these changes are transforming the way school districts are funded statewide. 

The new school funding model is having a big impact on school districts and tax¬payers across our state, and we are still working to determine exactly how it will affect our budget. 

I believe it is our responsibility as a school district to keep you informed, so please be on the lookout for our next newsletter, which will include detailed information regarding these changes and how they will affect our school district and you, our community. 

Meanwhile, if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 360-448-6400. 

Sincerely, 

Sandra Yager
