WHS Important News about April 7, 8, & 9

To the Students and Families of Woodinville High School, 
 
Thank you all again for your patience around information related to hybrid learning, which starts on Monday April 19th. Today, we are providing information about a schedule adjustment for teacher planning days next Wednesday through Friday. 

Next week, teachers in secondary schools across Northshore and at Woodinville High School will spend time preparing their classrooms.  Preparations will occur on April 7, 8, and 9. During these classroom preparation days, students will be provided with lessons and learning activities that extend and build upon current course lessons or units.  The work students will be asked to do is work they can do independently.  Teachers will be sure to share their expectations for asynchronous learning time with students prior to the first classroom preparation (asynchronous learning) day. On each asynchronous learning day, attendance and participation is expected, and we will account for attendance in the following way:

Attendance will be taken on Thursday and Friday 4/8 and 4/9. Teachers will explain to students what the process for attendance will be for their class. Many will use a Google Form that they will check at the end of the day to ensure students engaged asynchronously.
 
Finally, we wanted to share this opportunity with our students:

2021 Visionaries: Students of Color Conference- tell your students!
2021 Visionaries is coming up on April 7, 2021! This virtual conference is designed for high school students of color in the Northshore School District. The purpose of the conference is to create intentional space for our students of color to engage in positive identity development, build community, collaborate with one another, meet and work with educators and community partners who have similar backgrounds and identities, and learn more about various college and career paths. 
 
What: 
2021 Visionaries: Students of Color Conference
When: 
Wednesday, April 7, 2021
Time: 
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
 
Registration:
Please register here. If you are assisting students in registering, please make sure to have them register using their Northshore School District email address. The Zoom link will be sent the Northshore email on file. While this event is designed to support students of color, it is open to all Northshore School District high school students. 
 
Thank you for your continued partnership with our school.  We are grateful for your support and look forward to welcoming students who will engage in in-person hybrid learning during the week of April 19.

GO Falcons!
 
Sincerely, 
 
The Woodinville Administration Team

Thursday, April 8th 
4:30 P.M. – 7:00 P.M. (By Appointment)  


We are so excited to have students coming back into Woodinville High School! We also know that not knowing the inside of our high school can cause some uneasiness. For that reason, we are offering tours for all freshmen and new to WHS students returning to hybrid instruction.  

If you would like to take a tour, please book your 20 - minute appointment here for a tour on April 8, 2021.  Students will be in groups of five and tours will be given by students on the WHS Leadership Team.

Student Health Check Form in ParentVUE/StudentVUE  

When in-person learning resumes, each morning, parents and guardians must complete a daily Health Check form in ParentVUE for their student prior to their student arriving on campus. This applies during Bridge Weeks, as applicable, and hybrid learning. Middle and high school students can complete their own health check form daily if they prefer. Completion will be required prior to entering the building.

With the launch, in the meantime, parents and guardians must complete this form daily in order to access anything else in ParentVUE. This includes parents and guardians of students in all modes of learning -- Bridge Weeks, hybrid, and remote. By completing this form on a daily basis, all families will be familiar with the process when their students do return to in-person learning. Please note if the answer to any of the questions on the daily Health Check form is yes, the student must stay home and contact their school.

Families can visit nsd.org/healthcheck to get more information about how to access the form. The webpage has step by step instructions, along with helpful tutorial videos in accessing ParentVUE and StudentVUE, as well as how to complete the daily form. 

The Northshore School District mobile app also provides access to the webpage. You can select the icon titled “Health Check” and it will bring you directly to the webpage where the forms are located. 

When the time comes for in-person learning to resume, if a parent/student forgot to complete the form before arriving on campus, QR codes will be available to scan with the student's mobile device’s camera outside the building. The QR code will take you directly to nsd.org/healthcheck to complete the process. Paper copies will also be available on site, if needed.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in keeping our Northshore community safe!

NSD Reopening Plan & Safety Protocols


The NSD Handbook is intended to help everyone understand the safety protocols.


The following plan was developed by District staff in preparation for a return to school and District buildings when it is safe to do so. The information in this handbook is intended to help everyone understand required safety protocols and know what to expect for every student and staff member. As the pandemic data and state response continue to evolve, District staff will continue to review, refine, and adjust this plan as needed. We remain grateful for their efforts.

The return to in-person learning will be most successful and have the best chance to be sustainable if we are all prepared and working together. We ask that you familiarize yourself and your students with the following health department protocols and CDC requirements.

Reopening Schedule & Activities

With the safety of students, staff and families as top priority, certain student groups are returning to classrooms for in-person instruction and other student groups will come to school campuses for transition and support activities.
Remote learning will continue for students whose families choose to keep them home.
To learn more and view the Reopening Schedule visit the NSD Website.

Student Celebrations!

2021 Puget Sound BAM Minority Student Day 

It was an engaging and fun experience last Friday, March 26 for several of our Falcon students along, who participated in a virtual field trip put on by Microsoft called BAM, which is an acronym for Blacks at Microsoft. This event helps expose minority students to careers in innovative technology. There was a keynote speaker Keke Palmer who spoke about her journey into becoming an actress and activist along with some of her challenges and aspirations in her career as a Black female.
Our students Mya Hariri, Joyin Akinola, Trey Bullock, Duzi Howerton, Ethan Bryan, Veleyna Felton, and Scarlet Gunderson, collaborated with other students to create product/service plans together with an interactive breakout room with moderators. They also had an opportunity to listen to a panel discussion with Microsoft employees of color; some of the topics covered were career options, employees’ career journeys, creating resumes, and being a minority in the technology field.

WHS Information about In-Person Learning

Dear Falcon Families!

This email went out to families that contains important information about in-person learning set to begin Monday, April 19. 

First of all, thank you all so much for your patience and understanding while we have been further developing a plan for hybrid learning and our students’ return to the Woodinville High School campus. 

While we are only releasing a small amount of information today, we are working on a WHS webpage to answer questions about hybrid learning that will include information detailing the ‘Day in the Life’ of an in-person learner and an in-person checklist of what to bring to school. Today, we are sharing information about how we are dividing our two hybrid cohorts.

Cohorts A & B
When making groups, we considered many factors. While we had to wait until all the survey data was received, we have been working with the responses, reviewing comments and requests, and developing the placements for Cohorts A and B.

Students will be assigned to the A or B cohort based on the last 2 digits of their home address house number.

Cohort A (Even House Number) will attend WHS in person on Monday and Tuesday of each week, and will Zoom into their classes on Thursday and Friday of each week. 

Cohort B (Odd House Number) will Zoom into their classes on Monday and Tuesday of each week and will attend WHS in person on Thursday and Friday of each week.

Cohort C (all students who chose the remote-only option or who did not respond to the survey) will Zoom into their classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of each week. 

We are attempting to accommodate cohort adjustments that have been requested and will be notifying families of placements as soon as possible. Our intention is to accommodate our students and families while keeping in mind the need to balance classroom sizes for safety.

*Note: All students must only come to school for the days of their specific cohort. We do not have current capacity for students to attend school in-person on days they are not assigned. Students who attend in person on days they are not assigned to will be sent home or will need to be picked up by a family member. 

For all groups, Wednesdays remain focused on office hours and clubs, and will be provided virtually following the same schedules as they have all year. We will continue our drive-up distribution days on Wednesdays as well. 

Additionally, we will be providing small group tours for 9th-grade students and those new to WHS this year who have not been on our campus before. This is for students returning to school the week of April 19th. Families of 9th-grade students and those new to WHS will receive more information on this later today. For those who stay fully remote, we are planning to offer opportunities for tours before the school year begins in September.

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to move toward our students’ return to in-person learning. Inevitably there will be adjustments to be made after we begin, so we will continue to ask for your support as we make any possible changes needed to best serve our students and families.

GO Falcons!

Sincerely, 

The WHS Administration Team
Kurt Criscione, Brenda Conrad, Craig Richardson, and Matt Wallace

 Washington's K-12 Internet   Access Program: Check Eligibility for Free Internet Access 

Having reliable connectivity to the internet is critical for your student’s success during distance learning. The state recognizes this need, and has partnered with Ziply Fiber and Comcast/Xfinity to create Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program, which gives eligible families free internet access so your student can connect to online learning from home.

This internet access opportunity will provide you with faster, stronger and more reliable connectivity than hotspots or tethering to mobile devices, which will better support your student. If eligible, your free internet access is available through June 30, 2021.
Complete information and the steps to check elegibility, can be found on the Woodinville High School Website.

Optional Student Insurance
As a service, NSD is providing information regarding optional student accident and health insurance coverage administered by Myers-Stevens & Toohey, Inc. These low cost plans are distributed by many districts across Washington. Although they are not the only provider of this type of coverage, they have been recommended by our Washington Schools Risk Management Pool.

Students in need of financial support?
Please contact your school counselor

WHS counselors have access to community resources to support families who could use a grocery card, help with school fees/supplies or other basic needs.  Please contact your School Counselor if they can help during this challenging time.  There is no qualifying factor and is confidential. Please don't hesitate to ask. 
Changes To The Free Meals Program

Our free meals program is changing and we want to be sure families are prepared to place orders that are appropriate for their situation.

NSD is offering free meals for all children ages 18 and younger. 
Students do not need to be enrolled in the Northshore School District to receive meals. NSD requires that all families wear a mask and maintain physical distancing when picking up their meals. Thank you for helping to keep our drivers and families safe.
For more information and to view changes, visit the NSD Website.

Apply for Free & Reduced Price Meals Today!

While Northshore is currently providing free meals, this support is made possible by temporary USDA funding. If this funding changes, the District may be required to charge families based on their current eligibility for meals. Have you applied for free and reduced-price meals this year?

If your family qualified last year, you need to reapply this year to ensure that your student receives free or reduced price meals once the current free meals program ends. It is important to apply today so that your eligibility status doesn’t lapse. If an application was not in process for a returning student by October 14, 2020, the student’s account was automatically transferred to a paid account the next school day. Please know that the number of eligible students for free and reduced price meals connects to the District’s Title I funding, which provides additional support at schools to help students succeed. Additionally, if your family income has decreased, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.

In addition to receiving free or reduced-price meals, your eligibility also provides
  • Reduced fee for Camp Cedar Spring
  • Reduced fee for PSAT and Advanced Placement Testing
  • Reduced fee for sports/athletics
  • Reduced fee for summer school
  • Access to Backpack Program, which provides backpacks and school supplies
  • Access to Operation School Bell, which provides clothes and personal products
