Sunday memo: Teacher agreement . . . Nickelsville moving . . .Bumbershoot plays on

Memo_weather_9-1Tentative agreement: An announcement this morning could come as bad news for Seattle School District students who thought they might get an extended summer vacation as teachers and the district squabbled over labor issues.

Seattle School Superintendent Jasa Banda and Seattle Education Association President Jonathan Knapp have announced that the school district and the teachers’ union succeeded in reaching a tentative agreement early this morning.

If teachers approve the agreement at a general meeting Tuesday, school can start on time as scheduled on Wednesday.

Moving on: The Nickelsville homeless encampment on West Marginal Way is scheduled to move on and multiply today, scattering to three different sites with the help of local churches and housing advocates. About 100 Nickelsville residents are expected to move to three church-sponsored sites — one at 20th Avenue South and South Jackson Street in the Central District, another in Skyway, and the third in a yet-unrevealed Seattle neighborhood.

More Bumbershoot: Tegan and Sara, the Zombies and Death Cab for Cutie highlight the Labor Day music festival playing on today at the Seattle Center. The music continues on Monday, and then . . . we hesitate to mention this . . . the holiday weekend is over and it’s back to work.

Husky opening: It wasn’t just the season opener for the University of Washington football team. It was the opening of the remodeled Husky Stadium, and the Dawgs did it up right with a 38-6 win over 19th-ranked Boise State.
