The coronavirus pandemic continues to leave its mark on the Edmonds School District, with enrollment numbers significantly down, and Edmonds-Woodway and Meadowdale high schools both reporting positive COVID cases.
While enrollment was expected to drop by about 200 students, figures after the first four days of school show that number is 345, said Assistant Superintendent Greg Schwab at a school board meeting Tuesday, Sept. 14.
While high school numbers are only down by six students, middle school is off its projected number by 140 students, and elementary schools off by 199 students.
