Last day of school
Several districts pushed back the last day of school to make up for closures after the Nov. 18 windstorms. For several schools, the last day will now fall on a Monday. The Granite Falls School District holds its last classes this Monday, instead of Friday. Friday will now be a one-hour early release day. Monday is a half-day. Other school districts pushing their last classes back a day: Arlington to June 20; Everett, June 22; Lake Stevens, June 14; Marysville, June 20; and Mukilteo, June 16. Lakewood and Index schools also canceled classes but made up the days during the school year. For each, the last day remains June 17. All of the schools plan to release students early for the last day of the academic year.
