Dear Stanwood-Camano Community:
A committee made up of parents, community members, school board members, and staff, has been working on a plan to replace the 45 year-old Stanwood High School for the past year. The existing school has served the community well beyond its intended life. The committee has determined the new school should remain on the existing site and replacing the facility without a tax increase to the community is realistic.
At this point, the committee is seeking input from the community at-large to develop a conceptual design for the new school. The committee is excited to be able to solicit community input that will be used in the development of a final recommendation to the school board. The financing (bond issue) plan will be presented to voters in the form of a ballot measure in February 2017.
The community is invited to any of the meetings, listed below, to provide input into the proposed plans and to learn more about related issues. There will be opportunities for hands-on involvement and other activities that will directly influence the final plans.
Community meeting dates:
March 8 - 6:30 PM Stanwood High School Library (7400 272nd St. NW, Stanwood)
March 9 - 6:30 PM Utsalady Elementary Gym (608 Arrowhead Road, Camano Island)
May 2 - 6:30 PM Utsalady Elementary
May 9 - 6:30 PM Stanwood High School
