Dear Nooksack Valley Community,
The community of Marysville is on all of our hearts and minds, and in our prayers. The events at
Marysville High School last week serve as a tragic reminder of the need for school safety plans
to be in place. It is important for our staff, students, and community to be reminded that we have
clear emergency procedures for events like this.
Each of our schools have addressed with staff and students, in age appropriate ways, what the
response would be to such an incident. Our schools will continue to practice safety procedures
for lock-down, evacuation, and active shooter situations. We will continue to closely partner
with local law enforcement to provide a frequent, proactive presence in our schools. Local law
enforcement has practiced “active shooter” simulations in our district. Safety and security are
also addressed in our upcoming bond issue.
Prevention and wellness are also critical components in our efforts to nurture and develop
healthy, active, and thriving young people in our community. We have expanded counseling
services in our schools, and have partnered with external agencies to provide access to more
intense mental health, and numerous other services. We are working with the Boys and Girls
Club to develop a program of services for our children. Our staff works hard to develop positive
and trusting relationships with their students. We will continue to place strong relationships with
all students as a top priority so our schools remain safe, trusting environments for all.
Personally, two of my grandsons are kindergarten students at Everson Elementary School. My
commitment to you is to do everything in my power to provide for all children what I deeply
desire for these two precious boys. Our entire community needs to make a collective
commitment to ensuring that ALL children are known, loved, and cared for. It requires all of us
working every day to reach out to children and families who are most in need with extra love and
support. My prayer is that those outside of Nooksack Valley say to each other, “That’s a
community that really cares for and loves one another”.
We hope and pray that we will never have to face a situation such as this in any of our schools,
but please know that our school personnel will care for your child to the best of their ability.
Thank you for all that you do to ensure that our schools are safe, warm, welcoming places.
Dr. Mark Johnson, Superintendent of Schools

Nooksack Valley School Board Approves

Bond Resolution for February 2015 Ballot 

The Nooksack Valley School District Board of Directors approved a plan to put a $27.9 million bond proposal before district voters in February to address the district’s most critical facility’s needs.

This recommendation was made by the 18 member Facilities Advisory Committee after months of planning, discussion and study to determine how best to address district building needs.  After looking at several options representing a range of costs, it was determined that this current plan allowed the district to address deficiencies with the least impact to taxpayers.  In addition to the $27.9 million bond amount, the District would also be eligible for $7.4 million in state funding assistance when the bond is approved by local voters.

This 18 member committee is comprised of various stakeholders from throughout our communities, including parents, teachers, community members (including retirees), school board members and administrators.  “I want to thank this dedicated group of individuals for volunteering their time and expertise to help us put together a bond package that will serve our students and community for years to come,” said Superintendent Mark Johnson.

The recommended bond proposal includes the following:

       Replace Nooksack Valley Middle School, originally constructed in 1947 

•       Add four classrooms, and enclose/expand the existing play shed at an overcrowded Nooksack Valley         Elementary School 

•       Replace the 1954 portion of Nooksack Valley High School, including a new STEM lab and counseling         center 

•       Construct and equip a new fitness center at the high school 

•       Renovate and remodel agricultural sciences, woodshop and art classrooms at the high school 

•       Enhance safety and security

The District will be sending out additional information on the bond in the coming months.  Please also check the Nooksack Valley School District website http://www.nv.k12.wa.us for updates.
