Meetings are held at 6:30pm in the CVE Library.

February 23rd
April 18
May 18


Parent Leaders United for Snohomish Students (PLUSS) in simple terms is like a parent meeting for the whole district.  It is not a PTA, PTO or parent group meeting.  It is a meeting of parents from all of the schools in the district along with district staff.  This is a great place to hear what the district is working on, what the concerns of other parents are or simply what is happening in our district.  Please consider attending one of these meetings if you would like to have first hand knowledge of what is going on around the Snohomish School District. 

The next PLUSS meeting will be: 

January 12, 2017 - Drugs in Our Community

Meetings are held at the SSD office (RSC)
1601 Avenue D in Snohomish


Weekly on Thursdays your child will bring home important papers in their 'take home' folders. Be sure to check these folders.
