Good Evening Meridian Students, Staff, and Families. As you know, we have been messaging information about our understanding and preparation for the coronavirus COVID -19 outbreak.

That exposure occurred on February 29. Our staff member has cold symptoms, is staying home, and connecting with their primary care doctor. In conferring with the Whatcom County Health Department, our board and our executive team, we have made the decision to [...]

As evidenced by this past week, we are still in what I would call the 'danger zone' where we may need to delay or close school due to winter weather conditions. We are scheduled [...]

Greetings Meridian Students and Families, I want to share some information with you about a comparison of levy measures in the Bellingham Herald today. The article references incorrect language for the technology levy, which states it is an expiring technology levy. The article is correct, there is no expiring technology levy. The district has not sought local support for technology for several decades, so this current technology levy is new for Meridian School District. The way the article is written implies there was a mistake by the Whatcom County Auditor's Office. The error was mine. School districts are responsible [...]

Greetings Meridian Students and Families, We are open and on time this morning! I can’t believe it has been a month since I’ve checked in. I sincerely hope you have all had a great holiday and start to the new year. It’s important to step away and recharge. It’s also nice to get back into a routine. The days off from school due to weather were not something we wanted to occur. However, given the wild week of weather we experienced last February, it was somewhat anticipated. One of the things we did to prepare was develop a school [...]
