Letter: Thanks to school employees


Washington’s public school employees — from the bus driver and food service workers to classroom teachers and administrators — continue to perform some of the most challenging work in our communities, amidst the most difficult of circumstances.

For American Education Week earlier this month, I want to recognize those efforts and say “thank you” to all education employees for helping our students stay connected — in big and small ways — throughout this pandemic. Your efforts may be the one thing that keeps a child coming back to school and engaged in learning. On behalf of the Washington Association of School Administrators, thanks to the dedicated individuals who lead and staff our schools — for all you do, each and every day, for the students in schools across the entire state of Washington.
