  • Boundary Change Update

    Based on the recommendation from District Administration, the Sumner School District Board of Directors adopted a resolution to change attendance boundaries, effective the 2018-19 school year. A clause within the resolution allows families affected by the boundary change to be “grandfathered” into their current school.

    The district is moving forward on voter-approved projects, all designed to support our students and our community.

The first projects include a new elementary school in Tehaleh and a new Performing Arts Center at Bonney Lake High School.
