Tuesday ~ September 14th
Virtual Event

Woodinville High School’s Fall Open House will be available virtually again this year on Tuesday, September 14th in order to value the health and safety of our staff and families. We will be posting our Open House page in the same way we did last year on Tuesday, September 14. We will send the link at the time the webpage goes "live".
Each teacher will have a pre-recorded Open House video for their classes for parents to watch. You simply have to scroll down to the teacher's name, click on the class your student is taking and watch the video. We will also have a general message from the Principal, ASB President, and PTSA (also, please donate/join - they help us out a lot!).
We will keep these videos up all year so you can access them at any time and access the videos of your student's new teachers when your student changes some classes at semester.
We hope you enjoy the opportunity to "meet" your student's teachers through our Virtual Fall Open House!

Student Handbook/Planner
A vendor shipping delay has resulted in the WHS 2021-22 Student Handbook/Planner delivery running behind. The free Student Handbook/Planners will be distributed to students as quickly as possible upon arrival through Advisory classes.

Technology: Schoology, StudentVUE/ParentVUE & School2Home Computing Device Program

Students and staff will continue with the use of Schoology for distribution of class assignments and learning materials, along with StudentVUE and ParentVUE for grading and access to near real-time information on attendance, class schedules, report cards, course history, graduation status, and more.

Device distribution started September 3 during English class periods. For those who have not yet received a device and would like one, they should go check one out at the library. Families will not have to request a device for the upcoming school year - one will be made available to each student in grades 2-12 and provided in the classroom for students in grades K-1 (

Questions regarding devices can be directed to   
Yearbooks are sold on a pre-sale basis ONLY for $55 each during September 1-17, and, finally, December 1-17. 
  • Yearbooks can be purchased during the above sales window online through Touchbase or at the Cashier's Office before school, during options, lunch, or after school.
  • Please plan accordingly as many students who believe they do not want a yearbook during the sale windows at the start of the year feel differently as the school year comes to a close and they are unable to purchase one!
  • Please be reminded that if during the course of the year more than one yearbook is purchased – there will be NO REFUNDS. If you purchase two yearbooks, you will be given two books, not one book and a refund for the other.

We need food donated for the dance all in

Donations will be accepted on September 20-24th from 8:00am-3:30pm.
Thank you so much for your donations! We couldn’t do this without you! If you have any further questions feel free to contact Haley Ahlstrom at

From the Health Room

This is an exciting time and we have enjoyed seeing our students back on campus! Here are some reminders that everyone needs to follow:

First and foremost, if your student is not feeling well on any school day, please keep them home. Please monitor for 24 hours. If they have no symptoms, then we look forward to having them at school. Some signs that your student should stay home include sore throat, headache, cough, or fever.

Second, if your student is well, make a reminder about wearing a mask and observing a 3-foot distance from all others while on campus.

Go Falcons!


The COVID Handbook has been updated and reflects NSD's current practices. Please read through this information carefully so that we can work together to keep our students, staff, and families safe. NSD will continue to monitor evolving pandemic data along with state and federal requirements to update this handbook as appropriate. You can find the link to the NSD COVID-19 Handbook here

WHS Sporting Events-Spectator Mask Requirement

As of Tuesday, September 7, King County* began requiring masks, regardless of vaccination status, for everyone ages 5+ at outdoor events with 500 or more people, and continue to be required in public indoor spaces. This includes spectators at WHS sporting events. Additionally, all competitions at Pop Keeney Stadium require spectators to wear masks regardless of capacity. We appreciate and thank all students, parents, guardians, and guests, in advance, for keeping safety at the forefront by adhering to the requirement and wearing a mask except when actively eating or drinking. 

We love the spirit our community contributes supporting and cheering on the Falcons. We hope this measure will play a part in continuing that tradition while also keeping our schools open and our students, families, and community healthy.

Thank you for your partnership.

*As of September 13, a State requirement was also announced by Governor Inslee.
Bus Routes 2021-2022
Bus route information is now available for families with bus riders. Find your bus route information.

New! "MY STOP" App!

The District will launch a new application, called My Stop, which will allow you to find updated arrival time for your student’s bus. This will be available beginning Sept. 1, but you can download the app now.

The free My Stop application will improve communication with families about student’s bus schedules. Students should still arrive at their bus stop at least five minutes early. The My Stop application provides parents/guardians and students information about a student’s assigned bus. The application gives an estimated time of arrival at your assigned bus stop. My Stop lets families know if another bus is taking the route on a given day because the assigned bus is being serviced. Note that My Stop will only provide bus route data to users with the correct username and password information to log into the system. Once provided, My Stop will transmit useful information securely. Without providing appropriate credentials, My Stop won’t provide any information.

We are using the new My Stop feature on Wednesday afternoon routes. We anticipate that it will work as expected, but if you experience any issues please contact us at (425) 408-7981 or by email at

Please know that the My Stop application is a new tool to help provide information about your student’s assigned bus, but it should not be solely relied on. It is important that your student is always at their assigned bus stop at least five minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.

If you have any questions, please contact Transportation at (425) 408-7981 or by emailing Thank you for your patience as we implement this new tool. 


Please be advised that bus passes are not approved for the first month and a half of school (near the end of October). Transportation needs time to properly assess available seats.

Beginning Monday, September 13, students must have a valid WHS 2021-2022 parking hanger in their car to park on the WHS campus. Students are strongly encouraged to ride the school bus or carpool for space and environmental reasons.

Parking hanger applications for the 2021-2022 school year were accepted at the end of last school year. Payment for students pre-approved to purchase a WHS parking pass can be made online through TouchBase. All fines must be paid before a parking hanger can be issued. Students who pay online should bring in their receipt of payment when picking up their parking hanger from the campus supservisor window at the main office. Parking is limited and will close once all available hangers have been issued. Please contact Mr. Dillman regarding parking availability if an application was not made at the end of last school year.

Students who do not have a parking hanger on September 13 must park on the street until it is purchased. The cost of parking hangers is $50 per year/$20 per seasonal sport/activity. The purchase of a parking hanger does not guarantee students a parking space every day. All parking is on a first-come, first-served basis in designated student parking areas. Parking on the WHS campus is limited. Please see the priority parking plan below. 

The parking priority plan is as follows:  

Seniors with WANIC/Health Science/Running Start class where there is no district shuttle offered. 

Juniors with WANIC/Health Science/Running Start class where there is no district shuttle offered. 

Seniors who participate in after school sanctioned sports and pre-approved after school activities. 

Juniors who participate in after school sanctioned sports and pre-approved after school activities. 

Seniors who have waivers or work after school. 

Remaining seniors in the lottery. 

If you have questions, contact Campus Supervisor Alan Dillman at
Attendance News & Changes for Early Dismissals
Our student day is from 8:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. and WHS expects all students to attend school every day.  Below are a few highlights of our attendance policy and procedures:
  • 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.
Please refer to the WHS Website’s Attendance Page and/or the WHS Student Handbook for more details or contact the Attendance Office at 425.408.7410 or

AP Exam Registration for May 2022 AP Exams
For the 2021-22 school year, the AP® Program is again offering new resources and processes designed to help students earn college credit and placement. Here’s what you and your student need to know:
  • Students will be asked to register for AP Exams in the fall. Keep an eye out for more registration information later in September.
  • AP Exams will continue to be given in May.
  • Students will get personalized feedback through new digital tools that provide daily support for every AP classroom. AP teachers will be able to track student performance throughout the year using monthly personal progress checks.
To get ready for the coming school year, please encourage your student to sign up for a College Board account. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so if your student created one for the PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT®, a previous AP test, or College Board Opportunity Scholarships, they’re all set. Students will need to have their username and password available during the first week of school.
