We remain saddened by the tragic shooting that occurred on the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Campus on October 24, 2014. We maintain that District staff acted responsibly in the face of this tragedy, as found in Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (S.M.A.R.T) investigation. The Marysville School District was dismissed from the lawsuit and the settlement decision was made by the insurance company alone as part of their claims process.
The District met its obligations to supervise and monitor students. Our staff responded to this horrible event with the utmost poise and compassion, even while being personally affected as well. We continue to grieve for the families involved in this terrible tragedy, and we hope this resolution gives them some peace.
We will not waiver in our commitment to our staff members, and we honor their ongoing dedication to our students, parents and the community. As a district, we will continue our commitment to the safety, welfare and education of our students, and will maintain the support systems needed for any and all who are still affected by this senseless tragedy.
