We are currently without power at Southwood, Sunrise, and Enumclaw Middle School. Prior to losing power, the school systems were able to warm the buildings and currently have plenty of natural light. We will operate school as normal and we are communicating with PSE, who is investigating and working to return power as soon as possible. Phones are currently working. We will continue to provide updates as we receive information.
Reminder: November 17 - 23 are half days with early release times for school conferences. Elementary schools release at 12:15pm, EMS & EHS at 11:15am, and TMMS at 11:25am each day during this time.
All elections are an important chance to make your voice heard. Make sure to have your ballots in November 8.
Yesterday, Enumclaw Middle School administrators received a report of a shooting threat planned to take place on Monday morning. School administrators and the Enumclaw Police Department responded immediately to ensure the safety of our schools. For detailed information regarding the action taken by the Enumclaw Police Department, please review our previous communication. We understand that some of our students, staff, and families remain concerned and request additional information. Due to Federal and State privacy laws, the district is not able to provide information on individual students. However, the student remains in custody and will not be returning to campus Monday. Additionally, when a threat is made, the student issuing the threat is not permitted to return to school until a full risk assessment is completed. Completed risk assessments can result in disciplinary action ranging from short-term suspension to expulsion. Law enforcement and mental health services may also provide additional restrictions. Out of an abundance of caution and to provide additional support for our students, staff, and families, Enumclaw Middle School will have an increased safety presence today and Monday. Our EPD SRO and additional counseling staff are present at EMS and available to students and staff.
