Thank you to the presenters and the great turnout of community members who participated in our February 12 meeting about the Fall 2020 re-opening of Webster School (3015 NW 68th St), former site of the Nordic Museum.
Speakers included Eden Mack, Seattle School Board Member; Brian Fabella, Seattle Schools Project Manager; Brian Ho, TCF Architecture; and Emily Butler Ginolfi, Licton Springs K-8 Principal.
My Ballard sent a reporter and published a very helpful synopsis: https://www.myballard.com/2020/02/13/closer-look-at-licton-springs-k-8-at-webster/.
The school principal and the parent teacher organization (PTO) leader emphasized that neighborhood volunteers are welcome to check back in the fall for opportunities to help on campus. (Standard volunteer application information is available via the Seattle School District.)
Additional information on neighborhood traffic and pedestrian safety adjustments will be forthcoming as the school district works with SDOT this spring and summer to prepare for the fall opening.
