Mukilteo school crowding forums: The Mukilteo School District is facing an overcrowding problem and will discuss possible solutions at a pair of public meetings, scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Voyager Middle School, 11711 Fourth Ave. W. in Everett, and 7 p.m. Wednesday at Harbour Pointe Middle School, 5000 Harbour Pointe Blvd., Mukilteo.
Enrollment at the elementary level has increased by about 500 students in the past five years, the equivalent of a typical elementary building, prompting the addition of 17 portable classrooms. The largest of Mukilteo’s elementary schools has more than 800 students, which makes it as large as a middle school.
Enrollment in early grades is expected to increase by another 350 students by 2017, Superintendent Marci Larsen said in a statement.
Become a forest steward: Everett Parks and Recreation and Forterra plan a “Forest Steward Orientation,” 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Lions Hall, Forest Park, 802 E. Mukilteo Blvd., Everett.
