    News Tribune focuses on summer hiring
    Forecasters are predicting there will be 400 new housing units per year in our district for the next 20 years. That means the number of staff will continue to grow alongside the incoming number of new students, which is already over 20,000.
    Road Closures
    Nearly 8,600 feet of new sewer pipe will be installed along Military Road from 22nd Ave East to 36th Ave East. The project is anticipated to begin this summer and take 12-18 months to complete. Expect intermittent road closures. Emergency vehicle and local access will remain open at all times. Drivers should anticipate intermittent traffic delays.

    New Educators Honored
    99 new Bethel teachers were honored at the South Sound New Educators Breakfast. They represented an even bigger group of new hires that will be entering our classrooms this fall. Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal spoke to the teachers via video and concluded, "With all of my heart, and from the entire OSPI team, thank you for choosing this profession ... we need you now, more than ever." Best of luck to all our new staff who are starting school with us on September 5th!
