We will allow a maximum capacity of 50% due to COVID protocols; access will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  
Mask Wearing
In an attempt to help the efforts to continue offering high school athletics and the opportunity for spectators to attend athletic events, the Stanwood-Camano School District is requiring that all spectators, coaches, support personnel, and athletes on the sidelines, wear masks while on school grounds.  We appreciate your cooperation.

CTE SURVEY:

The Stanwood-Camano School District Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program is seeking parent/ guardian and community input. Career and Technical Education (CTE - formerly referred to as vocational education) prepares students for life and a career after high school. Through hands-on experiences, students explore career opportunities, develop skills to prepare for those opportunities, and apply their academic, leadership, employability, and technical skills. Click here for a list of the CTE programs and courses offered in the district in grades 7-12. We are seeking your input on the program to assist us in evaluating and planning for the future.

Please take a moment to complete the survey found here. Your input will help guide our decision making for the next few years.

The district has created a specific webpage with all of the Covid related information.  Please go to the site below for that information:
