6-18-18: Alert: Families with students around the South part Olympic View Drive area in Edmonds, we have received news that part of Olympic View Drive has been closed off due to a crash and power pole coming down. Please find alternative routes to pick up your students if you typically use Olympic View Drive. Police are working with Edmonds Elementary on an alternative route. Students for Edmonds Elementary can be picked up at Grace Lutheran Church off 9th ave north while Olympic is closed. 6-11-18: Lynnwood High School staff were informed over the weekend that an 11th-grade student had died. The cause of death was suicide. The school was informed of the unexpected death of a 12th-grade student Monday morning. The cause of death is unknown.

Our thoughts and support go to both students’ families and friends at this difficult time.

With the loss of two students over the last 48 hours, we understand the impact this has had on our community and are here to support our students and staff. Lynnwood High School families were informed of the students’ deaths along with the following information:

At LHS, we will provide additional counselors on Monday and Tuesday and for as long as needed for any students who would like support.  When things like this happen, people have all sorts of feelings, such as shock, sadness, fear, and anger. Those feelings may come and go throughout the day and even for days to come, and some young adults may not seem to have any reaction at all. We don’t always know how a student will be affected by these kinds of situations.

We encourage you to reach out and check in with your student.  You need to simply listen to and talk with your student. As you know, it is important to reassure your student that you love them and will support them as they come to cope with this information. Grief is a very individual process and there is no timeline. If a student leans toward depression or self-harming behavior, this can be a particularly difficult time. What is most important is that we care for and support each other.

If you are concerned about your student or if you need support, I encourage you to contact our Guidance Counselors at 425-431-5202 for assistance. You can also contact:
