  • Message from the Superintendent

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the new school year beginning Wednesday, September 3, 2014. Since my start on July 1st, I have had the opportunity to meet many people and feel the strong sense of pride our community has. As the new Superintendent I am thrilled to become a member of the Medical Lake Community.
    Our motto is "Every Student. Every Day." and it is our mission to "ensure all students are prepared to be innovative, productive citizens in an ever-changing world." In anticipation of the students return, our staff has worked diligently to get the facilities ready and attended multiple educational trainings as we always work to improve.
    I look forward to meeting of you in the near future. Please read the following paragraphs for more specific information about your child's school.

  • Track Medical Lake Boy's Track earned their first ever State Title!! The meet was held at Eastern Washington University's Roos Field just before the end of the school year. The Cardinals are proving to be a force to be reckoned with. This is the second title for the Cards with the first being in Pasco in November for Cross Country. It was a close meet with the Cardinals taking a 50-48 lead over Zillah's team. The Lady Cards took just two competitors to the meet finishing ninth in discus and fifth in the 800. We are proud of our student athletes and all their hard work, as well as the families who support and encourage them to succeed. A tremendous thanks goes out to our coaches and volunteers as well.
