School district thanks classified employees

The Enumclaw School District is the largest employer on the Plateau, with 550 employees serving the 4,200 students every school day. This represents a lot of bus miles traveled, meals served, heads accounted for and rooms cleaned to create a learning environment that enriches our communities’ future – the children.

The caring and attention both to our grounds and facilities, and directly to the children that is provided by the outstanding classified staff serving as bus drivers, secretaries, para-educators, food service, custodians and grounds maintenance crews is deeply appreciated by your Enumclaw School board of directors. On behalf of the board I wish to honor your work during Classified Appreciation Week, March 8 to March 12. Thank you, classified staff, for bringing your best to our schools every day. You make a difference.

Nancy Merrill, board president

Chris VanHoof, vice president
