Inclement Weather Update:

If we experience inclement weather on a school day, learning will not stop for Stanwood High School.  Every Thursday morning at 7:10 a.m., teachers drop work in their Google Classrooms for the students.  The expectation is that students will continue to work on assignments that were already delivered.
**The teachers will hold Google Meets if power and connectivity permits.  We will still be able to count the day as a school day as long as students have assignments available.
