Senior Awards Night & Cap/Gown/ Ticket/Yearbook Distribution - Thur, June 1
Seniors report to the Aux Gym at 6:00 p.m.
Ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m. in the WHS Main Gym
Senior Awards Night is as a way to honor, recognize, and provide a social environment for the entire graduating class and their loved ones. The excitement of seeing future graduates acknowledged by faculty, picking up their cap and gown, smiling as they sign yearbooks, and making memories with one another is a highlight. As some seniors and parents/guardians wonder, seniors typically dress well for this event (dress shirts, slacks, dresses, etc.).
June 1 – Initial Cap/Gown/Ticket & Yearbook Distribution: At approximately 8:15 p.m., after the presentation of the yearbook to the class and the ceremony concludes, the initial distribution of caps, gowns, stoles*, tickets, and yearbooks takes place. Refreshments are also available at that time compliments of the WHS PTSA and the Class of 2024.
For the cap, gown, stole, and ticket distribution:
  • Seniors ONLY go to the Commons to pick up the items.

If a senior is unable to be at Senior Awards Night or is unavailable to attend the distribution event that starts after the ceremony ends:
  • A friend or relative can pick up the cap, gown, stole, and 5 complimentary tickets; however, a signed note from the parent/guardian must be provided to Jostens/WHS at the point of pick up. The individual picking up the items will be required to provide the note and sign for the items, relieving Jostens and WHS of responsibility if they should become lost or misplaced.

The WHS Drama Boosters help raise funds and provide volunteer support for: Props, costumes, set build materials, theatre equipment, professionals to assist with productions, costumer, choreographers, and producers, drama education with theatre professionals in the classroom, trips, and events, meals and snacks for students and volunteers, and scholarships for graduating seniors.  Meetings happen about once a month, either via Zoom or at the WHS Black Box.  It's a fun and rewarding way to stay involved with your student!

From the WHS Health Room

COVID Updates: 

The Washington State Department of Health has provided new guidance for schools this fall. Please review the Symptom and Exposure Flowchart for Schools and learn about the Northshore School District's COVID information on our Health Room website so you are prepared for the school year.  You'll find details about what to do if your child has:
  • Symptoms,
  • If your child is exposed to COVID,
  • What kind of test your child should have,
  • What to do if your child tests positive, and
  • How you will be notified of COVID cases at school.

Other Illnesses: 

To avoid the spread of illness other than COVID, follow these guidelines when deciding whether your child is healthy enough for school.  In addition to the COVID guidelines, if your child has any of the symptoms below, please keep him/her at home until the symptoms subside: 
  • APPEARANCE/BEHAVIOR: unusually tired, difficult to wake, pale, skin rash, lack of appetite; these are often signs of underlying illness.
  • FEVER: temperature of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours
  • VOMITING/DIARRHEA: within the past 24 hours.
  • RASH: Any rash of unknown cause should be considered contagious. Please have your child examined by a health care provider to determine the cause and communicability of the rash before sending him/her to school. The school may require a note from the health care provider stating that the rash is not contagious.
  • Other: For other specific diseases or health difficulties it is always a good idea to contact the school nurse. We are happy to share information and resources anytime! 

Students must be fever-free without fever reducing medication and other symptoms improving before returning to school. 

Medications at School:

If your student will be taking any medication at school, please contact the school nurse.  The Northshore School District recommends that medication be taken at home whenever possible.  We recognize, however, that in some cases it is essential that medication be administered during the school day. Learn about the procedures for the handling of ALL medications in the schools, as well as find the authorization form, on our Health Room website.

Please do not put any kind of medicine, including Tylenol, vitamins, and cough drops in your child's lunch box, backpack or pockets.  Unidentified medicine can never be given at school.  

Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss health concerns about your student.

COVID-19 Update

The Department of Health (DOH) requires schools to  inform families and students of  COVID-19 cases and potential outbreaks.
  • The accuracy of our data depends on self-reporting.
  • Thank you for continuing to let the Nurse Callahan and Nurse Gardner know if your child tests positive for COVID-19.
  • To view information, including school and district trends, visit the District’s COVID-19 data dashboard. The dashboard is updated weekly on Monday evenings
If your child is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 please keep them home and test for COVID-19.
Families can order free COVID-19 tests from the state
Together, we can keep our schools healthy and safe.

Visiting WHS? Sign in at the Main Office

In our continued commitment to provide a safe and productive school environment, visitor procedures are in place at all Northshore high schools. We ask all visitors to follow these procedures:
  • Visitors and volunteers MUST sign in at the Main Office upon their arrival and wear a visitor badge while on campus.
  • Unfamiliar persons and/or persons not wearing a visitor’s badge will be directed to the Main Office. Visitors may also be asked for identification.
  • In respect for the learning environment, visits to observe a classroom and/or visits to see students in a classroom during the day must be arranged through administration.
  • School-age visitors and graduates are not allowed on campus at any time during the school day. Special requests must be cleared through administration in advance.
For more information, please visit the WHS website.

Thank you for your support and help with these procedures that promote a safe and productive school environment at Woodinville High School!

Reduced or Waived Fees 2022-23

Available by logging into ParentVue and completing the steps in the Student Information Updates module

***Step-by-step instructions on how to submit the consent form in ParentVUE can be found in .pdf HERE.  An electronic step-by-step guide is also available on the district website.***

Please note: Part of the process when completing the consent form is families will first verify their information (address, phone, emergency contacts, etc.). The Consent form will appear after the race and preferred language questions. Parents/Guardians need to go through each page and verify information before reaching the consent form. The ParentVUE app on cell phones looks nearly identical to the computer version of ParentVUE for completing the online consent form.

If you qualify for free or reduced price meals, also apply for reduced or waived extra-curricular school fees pursuant to House Bill 1660 (that you may be eligible for) by completing that section of the Student Information Updates in ParentVue* on or after August 15 (see House Bill 1660 details below). 

Completing the fee waiver form in ParentVUE* will allow your student's free and reduced status to be shared with those administering extra-curricular activities at our school or within the district, thus being able to waive or reduce certain fees. 

Consent must be given each school year and does not carry forward from last school year. Instructions on how to submit the consent form in ParentVUE can be found on the district website.

Once the Consent is submitted through the Student Information Updates portal in ParentVUE, it takes a minimum of 24 hours for the waived fees to show up in TouchBase.

Visit the District website to learn how to apply for free or reduced price meals.
