If you need to pick up your student during the school day for an early dismissal, please call the school office a minimum of 15-20 minutes before you arrive (Earlier is even better)! This will give the office staff time to have your student waiting for you in the office when you arrive. If you prefer to have your student meet you in front of the building instead of in the office, please make this request when you call. Your student may head out there after signing out in the office.
Yes! If we don’t hear from a parent/guardian that a student is going to be absent, the absence will automatically be marked as unexcused. Parents can call the attendance line at 425-936-2461 and leave a message, or call the school office at 425-936-2460. When leaving a message, please state your name, your relationship to the student and the reason for the absence.
Should you need to get a message to your student during school hours, please call our main line (425-936-2460) and we will do our best to get the message to your student. Our school policy states that student cell phones must be turned off between the hours of 7:40 am and 2:15 pm so please help your student be successful by not communicating with them via their cell phone during the school day. Cell phones may be turned back on after 2:15 pm.
If your student is having a problem with his/her laptop, your student should take the computer down to the library during Pride Time. Most days we have a district technology technician on site during that time who can take a look at it. Middle School is a great time for kids to practice the skill of self-advocacy, so please allow your child the opportunity to take the steps necessary to get the issue solved on their own.
When is your child too sick to attend school? Please read the information on the following link to make an informed decision on whether your child should stay home, or not. If while at school, your child is determined to have any of the symptoms described in this list, you will be called and asked to pick up your child from school.

If your student is eligible for transportation, you will receive a postcard in the mail each year, before school begins, listing the bus information for your student(s). This postcard contains the route number; bus stop location; and time of pick up and drop off. If you did not receive a postcard or would like to confirm the information, you can look it up online, by using the above link. Parents will be contacted by the driver with route information for special needs students.
