Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders: Safety First

Falcon Parents, Guardians, and Students,

A reminder, for everyone's safety, that dropping off or picking up students in the WHS Bus Zone is not allowed.  It's imperative that this area remains clear for school bus drop off and pick up only. Bus drivers cannot see students that run across the bus zone in front of them to get into or exit a car. 

Additionally, students must not cross 195th Street NE at the Bus Zone entrance. There is not a crosswalk at this location. Students should not be dropped off or picked up alongside 195th Street NE. 

For drop off/pick up, please use the designated Main Office Drop-Off Loop.

Furthermore, for students that have permission to park in the 600 Building Lot, extreme caution must be used when leaving campus to not dart out of the lot in front of incoming school buses. 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important safety matter.

If you should have any questions, please reach out to Campus Supervisor Shaina Bloomquist or Campus Supervisor Alan Dillman.

GO Falcons!

Student Justice Conference
On Friday, March 22, several of our Falcons attended the Student Justice Conference at Cascadia Community College. The conference was designed for Northshore School District high school students.
The purpose of the Student Justice Conference was to build space for Northshore’s high school students to celebrate their intersectional identities, build community and collaborate with one another, grow their knowledge and understandings about various forms of justice, meet and work with educators and community partners, and learn more about various higher education opportunities.
During the conference, students heard from keynote speaker Christian Paige; attended three workshop sessions of their choice centered around the conference theme that were led by educators, community leaders, UW Bothell students, and Northshore’s Student Justice Collective; and had access to learning about higher education options, opportunities, and resources from UW Bothell and Cascadia College students and faculty.

Thank you to My Tang, Christine Gasparyan, and Kranthi Yarlagadda for chaperoning.

FAFSA/WASFA Information
If your student is planning to pursue a certificate program, job training, apprenticeships, or college (2-year, 4-year, trade school, technical school etc.) after high school, they may qualify for financial aid! Even if you think your family may make too much, please plan to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA or WAFSA.

The FAFSA is currently in their "soft launch" phase. Do not panic if the site is down. This is a new process for everyone this year and colleges will have to accommodate this new timeline.

Remember to utilize all the resources here to help you fill out the FAFSA:
