Registration assistance will also be available at school offices after they re-open following summer break. Middle and high schools will re-open on August 8, and elementary schools will re-open on August 17. For more information about student registration before schools open, contact the school district's Student Information Systems office at 360-596-6150.
Police to conduct active shooter training Aug. 17 and 31
The Olympia Police Department will conduct an active shooter training on August 17 and August 31 at the school district’s John Rogers Building, a facility on 26th Avenue Northeast that formerly housed the Olympia Regional Learning Academy and John Rogers Elementary School.
The routine annual in-service training for Olympia Police Department patrol officers will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.
The John Rogers campus, located at 2001 26th Ave. N.E., will be closed with signs around the property clearly notifying people that police training is underway. Olympia police plan to hold most of the practice inside of the building with little of the activity visible to the public. Police report the tools they will use are not expected to cause any alarming noises. An occasional loud voice may be heard by adjacent neighbors, and several police patrol vehicles will be in the building’s parking areas.
Any questions about this training may be directed to Olympia Police Lt. Paul Lower at 360-753-8410.
2016-17 district leadership assignments announced
We are pleased to announce that several individuals have been selected to serve in leadership positions for the 2016-17 school year. All positions were approved by the Olympia School Board this summer. District and school leaders work in close collaboration with other district leadership, teachers, students and families to ensure all students are successful.
