Welcome

 
Dear Eatonville School District Parents & Community,

We were deeply saddened to learn of the shooting that occurred this morning at Marysville-Pillchuck High school. As educational professionals, the safety of our students and our school community is always at the forefront of our efforts. Our thoughts and prayers are with the students, teachers, families and the community of Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

Our district and schools are vigilant in their efforts to keep students and staff safe. During a school shooting, our most effective response is to move into a lockdown procedure in order to try and secure our students and staff in locked classrooms. There are also specific procedures for evacuation and intruders. It is important for our schools, staff and parents to be knowledgeable about these plans and our schools regularly conduct drills in order to be able to respond as effectively as possible during these emergencies.

It is a struggle for adults and children alike to try to comprehend why and how such a senseless incident could occur. Excessive and repeated media viewing can create increased anxiety and therefore limiting ongoing exposure is recommended. Talking about the incident can be a healthy way for families to process their feelings and reactions to an event of this nature.

How to help children cope:
  • Listen to and accept children’s feelings.
  • Give honest, simple, brief answers to their questions.
  • Make sure they understand your answers and the meaning you intend.
  • Use words or phrases that won’t confuse a child or make the world more frightening.
  • Create opportunities for children to talk with each other about what happened and how they are feeling.
  • Give your child an honest explanation. If you are feeling so upset you don’t want to talk about what happened, you may want to take “time out” and ask a trusted family friend to help.
  • If children keep asking the same question over and over again it is because they are trying to understand; trying to make sense out of the disruption and confusion in their world. Younger children will not understand that death is permanent, so their repeated inquiries are because they expect everything to return to normal.
  • If the child feels guilty, ask him or her to explain what happened. Listen carefully to whether he or she attaches a sense of responsibility to some part of the description. Explain the facts of the situation and emphasize that no one, least of all the child, could have prevented it.
  • Let the school help. The child’s teacher can be sensitive to changes in the child’s behavior and will be able to respond in a helpful way.
  • Even if you feel the world is an unsafe place, you can reassure your child by saying, “The event is over. Now we’ll do everything possible to stay safe, and together we can help get things back to normal.”
  • Notice when children have questions and want to talk.
  • Be especially loving and supportive; children need you even more at this time.

Today is a tragic day. Our thoughts and hearts go out to the students, staff and families at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

Sincerely,

Krestin Bahr
Superintendent 



School Bus Safety Week Theme: “At My Stop, You Stop”
Most recent count of passing violations highlights the need for safety 
 
School Bus Safety Week
 
OLYMPIA — October 20, 2014 — While school bus safety is a year-round priority, this week it receives special attention.

School Bus Safety Week, which occurs the third week in October, reminds parents and students the importance of school bus safety. This year’s theme is, “At my Stop, you Stop!”

In recognition, Gov. Jay Inslee declared Oct. 20-24 as School Bus Safety Week, noting in a proclamation that “ensuring motorists adhere to the rules of the road around school buses during the loading and unloading of students is critical to maintaining safe conditions.”

Bus passing violations count released
The need for continuing education around school bus safety is highlighted by the release of data gathered this past spring.

A one day collection conducted May 1 yielded 1,678 instances in which drivers passed buses that had their stop sign out. The total is an increase of 155 reported violations (10.2 percent) from 2013. The number of districts reporting increased from 110 in 2013 to 153 in 2014.
