Martin Luther King Jr. Day

There will be no school for teachers/students on Monday, January 16.

Masking Indoors Recommended

Seattle & King Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin joins other local health officers and health care leaders in recommending masking in indoor public spaces and other prevention measures given the high level of respiratory viruses circulating and stress on hospitals. If you would like your child to wear a mask at school, please don’t hesitate to send them with masks and let your teacher know. We also have masks on hand here at Muir and are happy to provide them to any child or adult.

Questions? Contact the front office: #206-252-7400. Erika and Helina are always happy to help! You may also email Alana Haider (principal) or Quinta Thomas (ass’t principal)
