    A message from Superintendent Cvitanich

    I have been asked by a number of community members how our district will respond to any new executive order from President Trump and accompanying court decisions regarding immigration status, and how these decisions may affect the students and families served by the Olympia School District. With more than twenty different languages spoken in our school district, and 200+ English language learners, we are mindful of our responsibilities to the students and families we serve. We also know students work best in an atmosphere that is perceived as safe and supportive. As such, I have shared with staff the importance of our district's role in creating a safe and positive work environment for all students. All means all.
