School resumes Monday, April 19 and opportunities for in-person instruction will be available for students by educators who wish to instruct in-person, and online for other students. All grades remote learning if not attending in-person.

The Phantom Lake Elementary community welcomed Governor Jay Inslee, King County Executive Dow Constantine and other community leaders to school this week! Principal Melissa Macias and Assistant Principal Chhoun May walked the visitors through our safety protocols and procedures before visiting a few classrooms. They saw firsthand what in-person learning looks like for our students – including students and staff wearing proper facial coverings and classrooms organized to meet physical distancing guidelines. This opportunity allowed the leaders to talk with students and educators directly about their experience returning to the classrooms.

After the school tour, Inslee and Constantine were joined by BSD Superintendent Dr. Ivan Duran, Board President Dr. Francine Weist and members of the Phantom Lake community for a roundtable discussion on the transition back to in-person learning. It was an opportunity for the group to share thoughts, concerns, successes and suggestions with the leaders.

At the end of the visit, Inslee awarded Kelsey Voight as Washingtonian of the day! The leaders had the opportunity to visit Voight’s classroom as part of their tour. They witnessed Voight’s high-quality instruction and wanted to recognize her for her excellence.
