Governor Jay Inslee proclaimed the week of March 10-14 as Classified School Employee Appreciation Week and the South Kitsap School District recognized two of its employees.

The SKHS school board read the governor’s proclamation at the March 5 board meeting and Superintendent Michelle Reid presented certificates of recognition to PSE Union representa- tive Sharri Salo and SEIU President Mike Laxson.

Classified employees are involved in nearly every aspect of education, including maintaining school buildings and grounds, providing secretarial and clerical assistance, prepar- ing and serving meals, providing safe transportation, keeping school facilities clean and orderly, assisting in the classroom, providing a secure environment, and many other specialized services.
