“Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.” ~Brad Henry
Grade 6-12 Intent to Return Survey - Due by Tuesday, March 30, 12:00 p.m.



Dear Falcon Families!
As announced in Dr. Reid's March 24 email to Northshore families seen below, grades 6-12 will start a hybrid learning model on Monday, April 19. We look forward to the learning opportunities presented to all our students in this next stage of reopening. We appreciate parents thoughtfully considering the choice for your student(s) to return to in-person learning or to continue remote learning from home and to then share your decision by responding to the Intent to Return Survey as soon as possible, and in any event, no later than Tuesday, March 30 by noon.  (Please note the due date has been extended from today at 5:00 p.m. to March 30 by noon. NSD Communications is in the process of updating this information on the District website.)

Thank you for your patience while we gather the necessary reopening information and data needed to create schedules and to respond to your questions, many of which rely upon responses to the survey. We hope to have all survey responses documented as quickly as possible. In the interim, please visit the District website for a wealth of reopening information and details.
Thank you, enjoy the weekend, and GO Falcons!

Hello Team Northshore,
 
Following many long days of interest-based bargaining over the last several weeks, the Northshore School District and the Northshore Education Association (NSEA) have reached agreements on a return to hybrid learning that are in accordance with Governor Inslee's March 15 Emergency Proclamation.

Our district's elementary schools (grades K-5) will begin a hybrid learning model on April 5. Secondary schools (grades 6-12) will begin a hybrid learning model on April 19.

I want to thank each member of the large team of educators, in a wide variety of roles, who worked through complex logistical details to ensure our students and staff can make a safe and smooth transition back to the school buildings. 

Families of elementary students can find the elementary schedule here. Families of students grades 6-12 are asked to review the details on this page and then complete the Intent to Return survey at the bottom of the page. We ask that all families of students in grades 6-12 submit the survey by Tuesday, March 30 by noon* so school administrators and staff can plan accordingly.

Thank you for your partnership as we continue to navigate these challenging times.

Michelle Reid, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Northshore School District
 
(Email to Northshore Community, March 24, 2021, 9:06 p.m.)
*Due date changed from March 26 as originally published to March 30 at noon
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!

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.

Follow NSD Reopening Plan & 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.

 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.

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.

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.
InvestED is a 501 (c) (3) organization that provides funding to support the efforts of secondary schools throughout Washington State. They partner with 660 schools and assist more than 16,500 students with small amounts of short-term, item-specific, need-based funding – items such as shoes, coats, glasses, sports equipment, and academic fees. Their mission is to provide immediate help for students in need. Their goal is to encourage students to stay in school, return to school, or get involved within their learning community.
You can help students in the WHS learning community by adopting WHS in InvestED’s “Adopt a School” Program.

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
To find out if you are eligible and to apply online visit our website.
