Secondary Family Update for April 5

Secondary Family Update for April 5

Starting the week of April 19, students in grades 6-12 who have chosen hybrid learning will begin school in person.

The following is important information you need to know for this transition.

What to Bring

Students need to bring their laptop and charger to school. Students should wear a face mask or they will be provided with a disposable mask at school.

Health and Safety

Health and safety for students and staff is our top priority. Our safety expectations and plan are based on current guidance from local, state and federal public health agencies. Each layer of protection keeps us safer. See our safety guidelines.

See this short video with 7 tips for staying safe at school.

Online Registration

To make sure we are keeping all students safe while at school it is required that all families returning to in-person learning complete Online Registration. Thank you to those who have already completed this step. 

Online registration requires you to review, verify and update your students’ information. This process does not affect your student’s current enrollment status, but ensures we have updated home address, phone number, emergency contact and health information on file.

Complete Online Registration by logging into ParentVue.

If you have yet to set up ParentVue, please reach out to your school for support. 

Change in Assignment Process

Families may request a change in assignment:

  • From remote to in-person
  • From in-person to remote
  • From M/Tu to Th/F groups

 Decisions for changes in assignment will be based on capacity and related criteria.

 Please visit our website to request a change in assignment and to see the criteria for reassignment decisions. 


If you qualify for transportation, you can find your route information starting on April 8 on our transportation website. Routes may be adjusted over spring break. Please check again after April 16 for any final changes. If you need support, please reach out to the transportation department at 206.631.7502.

School Meals

All secondary students will have the opportunity to take one breakfast and one lunch per day when at school at no cost. Meals are “grab and go,” and menus are posted on the Nutrition Services webpage. You can search for allergens in meals on the Nutrition Services webpage. If an accommodation for an allergy is needed, please complete the form on the Nutrition Services page and submit to the school nurse. Once received by Nutrition Services, our district dietitian will confirm the information with a parent/guardian and note the start date for changes.

Students may also choose to bring their own food from home.  

In previous years, high school students were able to leave for lunch. However, due to COVID-19 and to limit exposure campuses will be closed and students will not be able to leave for lunch. 

 For those secondary students on campus two days a week, a five-day meal kit will be available at most secondary sites each Wednesday. For fully remote students, seven-day meal kits are available each Wednesday and Thursday at various locations throughout the district.  Please preorder meal kits online up to 5:00 a.m. on the day of pick up.  Please see the district webpage for the most current schedule for pick-up locations, times and days.

Photo Opt Out

If you do not want the school district to disclose directory information, including your student’s photo or video image, without prior written consent, you must notify your school in writing. By law, student information, including photos, are public information that can be shared with media outlets and partner organizations and published in the school yearbook unless a parent/guardian notifies the school to restrict their student’s photo and information.
