More volunteer opportunities to come.



Our first meeting will be on 
September 29th, 2016

In the gym at 6:30pm


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 first PLUSS meeting will be in October.

at the SSD office
1601 Avenue D in Snohomish


Look for the Welcome Packet to come home the 2nd week of school.
