Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope you all had a safe Super Bowl weekend.  I’m aiming to throw a jam-packed, raucous game-watching party for Super Bowl 2022 (hopefully with the Seahawks playing).  Yelling will be encouraged and masks will not be allowed!

With mid-winter break approaching, I’m including in this e-newsletter some information on where we stand as a state in terms of opening schools, and some coverage and articles about considerations and potential solutions for returning to in-person learning, at least for some students.   Also noted below are notices of some free virtual programs for Pre-K – 8 students next week from the Pacific Science Center and the fact that the National Nordic Museum will reopen to the public (following health guidelines, of course) on February 18th.

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
