District Announcements

    • April 2, 2020

      Selah School District Learning Community,

      Today, at 5:00 PM, Governor Jay Inslee announced an extension of the “Stay Home-Stay Healthy” order through May 4.  We are not sure how this impacts the remainder of the school year yet, but we do know that we will not be coming back to school until at least May 4.

      We will communicate once we have more information.  Until then, stay safe and stay healthy. Take care, everyone.


      Shane Backlund, Superintendent

    • Dear Selah School District Learning Community, ( 3/27/20)
      I hope this message finds you healthy and safe during these uncertain times.  The stay-at-home order by the Governor has put a strain on everyone, but as an essential service provider the District has been working hard to continue its meal service, child care for first responders and healthcare workers, as well as establishing academic resources for students.  I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished to this point..
