ISD Central Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah, WA 98029

Hello, ISD Community! Today I am excited to share my progress on the first half of my First 100 Days. So far, my work has been centered on listening and learning.

Here's a video I filmed to share a bit about how I've been inspired by our students and staff as I visited our schools and service sites

The next 50 days of the plan are focused on engaging with you. As a part of this phase, I’d like to invite all students, families, community members and staff to a Community Forum from 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah. I’ll share more about the format and topics soon. 

This event will be hosted in-person only. We will have interpreters available.

Meet Principal LeAnn Tuupo

Hello, Sockeye families! One of the best parts about being a principal is greeting the students, families and staff each morning with an air high-five or another quick connection. It helps set a positive tone for all of us! A few fun facts about me: Two of my favorite children’s authors are Mo Willems and Kazu Kibiushi. I have never lived outside of a 15-mile radius from my childhood home. And, if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be taco salad!
