“No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people, and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you might otherwise.” ~Marian Anderson

Congratulations to WHS's January CP & Dorothy Johnson Humanitarian Award Nominees!

The C.P. and Dorothy Johnson Humanitarian Award was established in 1988 in memory of Clifford Paul Johnson and his wife Dorothy. Both C.P. and Dorothy Johnson were long time Bothell residents and educators who dedicated their lives to improving the lives of all children in our community. There are three categories teachers can nominate students:
  • Community: Students who demonstrate the ability to promote and foster collaboration toward a common goal, fairness, freedom of expression, and effective communication within a group.
  • Acceptance: Students who promote the value and celebration of their peers’ strengths, abilities, and identities
  • Advocacy: Students who support the needs of, and encourage equitable opportunities and resources for, their peers.

Our WHS Racial and Educational Justice team will be building a monthly student pool of nominees from your teachers and WHS staff. These students will be finalist for the end of the year as recipient of the award presented by the district, and as part of this honor, they will recognize two students from each school who display the characteristics of a humanitarian in their school and community. Here are the nominations for the month of January and a short summary of why they were nominated from the teacher that nominated them.

Jeremy Juteau 9th - nominated by Aricka Smith - Community

Jeremy has shown eloquent advocacy for himself and his peers in the classroom. He tries his best and asks for help when it is needed. He cares for his education and has shown this many times in the classroom. He helps peers out when needed, collaborates well and shows his positive attitude every day.

Andrew Kitzan 12th - nominated by Jeff Montelone - Acceptance

Andrew is an exceptional computer science student and overall tech person who will support anyone who has any technology related questions. He assists other beginner Computer Science students, mentors them on other aspects of school and approach to learning. Just a great example of a person with a big heart in sharing his knowledge unconditionally to his peers and/or adults.

Lea Kallio 10th - nominated by Jamie Olson - Advocacy

Safety: Remind your students...

As a community, we hear across the nation, in our state, and even locally about students, when off campus, being approached for various reasons by individuals they do not know. Some of the reasons may be legitimate, but at times could be questionable. Our students are inclined to help people and at times may have their guard down during these possible encounters, so we are providing a friendly reminder to families to discuss and share with your student the importance of being alert when approached by individuals they do not know when out and about in the community.

Attention Parents/Guardians of Students Who May Have Covid-19 or Have Tested Positive 
(Please go through these three checks daily!)
  1. IF a student has ANY symptoms consistent with Covid-19 (headache, stuffy/runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of taste/smell, nausea/vomiting, fever) the student should STAY HOME!!
  2. IF you have said to yourself, “It’s just a cold.” The student should STAY HOME!! Symptoms of a cold are the same as those for Covid-19. Please don’t have your student come to school. Plan for your student to get tested as soon as possible and submit test results to the WHS Nurses, Christie Callahan and Jennifer Gardner.
  3. IF a student has tested positive for Covid-19, please opt out of batch testing for 90 days. If this is not done, the student’s test results will most likely come back positive!
WHS Positive Batch Test Result - What Would Next Steps Be?
If your student is identified as having a positive result from a batch test taken at Woodinville High School, each student and parent/guardian will be notified. This would not mean they have COVID-19. It simply means someone in their batch of people had tested positive. To determine if your student is COVID negative, an individual confirmatory test will be required.
  • Any fully vaccinated person in a positive batch does not have to quarantine but does have to get a confirmatory negative test.
  • Any unvaccinated person in a positive batch does have to quarantine and has to remain in quarantine until they receive a confirmatory negative test. 
Common questions:
Where and when is testing
Confirmatory PCR testing for vaccinated or unvaccinated students can happen at:
1) Pop Keeney Stadium located at 9809 NE 188th St, Bothell, WA 98011. You Would Need to Register for a specific time. The registration link would be provided by Mr. Richardson upon notification.
2) During the school day at WHS.
3) Private health care provider.
After the test, results will be emailed to the address provided at check-in. Results are expected to be in the portal 24 hours after the lab receives the test. If more than 72 hours has passed and you have not received an email with your student’s results, you can call Assistant Principal Craig Richardson to see if the results are available.  (Please note it is taking up to 3 days to get results.)
Will I be charged for the test? 
No, the confirmatory PCR test is free.  
What do I need to bring for the test? 
Those being tested will be asked for their name, date of birth, email address where results will be sent, and a student ID card, if available.  
What if I don’t want my student to have a confirmatory test? 
In the absence of a negative test, there is a mandatory 14-day quarantine for those who are unvaccinated before returning to in-person learning. However, there is no requirement your student take the confirmatory test provided by the District. You may elect to have a PCR confirmatory test by your health care provider or at a local clinic or pharmacy (e.g. – Walgreens) within three days. Vaccinated students and staff will need to provide proof of taking a confirmatory test within three days of being informed that they were in a positive batch. 
The District will accept these outside tests if the following information is shown: student’s name, date of the test, result of test and the document identifies the test provider. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted at this time.   
What if my student is fully vaccinated? 
Fully vaccinated means both doses and the two-week curative process for Moderna and Pfizer or one dose of Johnson & Johnson and the same two-week curative process. Proof of vaccination will be required to avoid quarantining until confirmatory testing. You will need to notify your school that your student is fully vaccinated. Be prepared to provide proof of your student being fully vaccinated to Nurse Christie Callahan and Nurse Jennifer Gardner
Throughout the pandemic the information for K-12 education has continued to change. The information above is the current process for Northshore’s positive batch testing results. Questions can be e-mailed to Assistant Principal Craig Richardson, Nurse Christie Callahan and Nurse Jennifer Gardner
Thank you for your help in keeping Woodinville HS Students healthy and safe.

Northshore provides opportunities for continuous learning while students have to quarantine due to Covid. Please use the link below to access a schedule of lessons by Northshore educators while your student is quarantining or waiting for COVID testing results. 

Weather & Emergency Information

Emergencies and weather-related problems can alter school schedules and affect bus transportation for students. Families will receive a telephone message from the district if there is a change to the school schedule. If no schedule change information is posted, schools and buses are on their regular schedules.

Attendance & Early Dismissals

  • Absences must be excused within two (2) school days of the absence or students will be assigned progressive discipline.
  • Ten hours of excused and/or unexcused absences in a semester in a given class may result in going through the Attendance Validation process.
  • When a student accumulates three (3) or more days of unexcused absences it will result in a conference with administration.
  • If a student misses more than 15 minutes of class, it is considered an absence
  • If a student requires an early dismissal, the student needs to come to the Attendance Office before school or during Options with a parent/guardian signed request. We are no longer accepting phone calls or emails for early dismissal to limit classroom interuptions.
  • Students who arrive late to school (both excused and unexcused) must check in at the Attendance Office for a pass before proceeding to class.
