    • Resources for at Home Learning During School Closures

      Seattle Public Schools is dedicated to ensuring educational excellence for every student. During school closures, our hope is that learning will continue (particularly in the core academic areas). This is not a replacement for classroom instruction. These activities are not required nor will be graded.
