Message from Deputy Dodge:
Disabled Parking Spaces

As the year comes to a close, there are more and more cars jamming the parking lots. While the school controls enforcement for students parking where they are not supposed to, this is not the case for disabled parking spaces. The school and the police department have gotten complaints about students parking in these spots during school in the small parking lot off of NE 195th St, near the baseball field. Additional complaints have come in about parents using them to wait for their students at the end of the day. Unless you have a placard, parking in these spots is in violation of RCW 46.19.050(4), which carries a penalty of $450. “Parking” is also legally defined as waiting in your car in a spot for longer than 10 minutes. Please be cognizant of this, as I have started issuing citations to violators that go through Kirkland Municipal Court, not the WHS front office. We give the kids as much breaks as are reasonable with the school parking, and toss out a lot of $20 tickets, but there is no leeway with the disabled spots. I greatly appreciate your cooperation with this.

Deputy Brendan Dodge, SRO

NSD Updated Late Work Policy - Second Semester 2021-22

Grading is a complex topic connected to the heart of our work around teaching and learning, and recently the district and teacher’s union agreed upon some changes with regards to late work.  Please note the A, B, C, D, & NC (No Credit) grading system has not changed, just the procedure for collecting late assignments.  

To address the understandings and teacher workload concerns surrounding late work, the following parameters and strategies have been developed:

When an assignment is turned in more than one week after the conclusion of a specific unit of study, teachers will review the late assignment and:
  • Provide a “meets standard” grade of 85% for those assignments that reasonably meet the  communicated standards; or
  • Provide a “does not meet standard” grade of 60% for those assignments that do not reasonably meet the communicated standards; and
  • Provide feedback on the work.

Late assignments will be accepted and graded up until 10 school days before the end of a quarter or semester.

By the way, teachers who have established grading practices that provide students with more opportunities to submit late work without penalty than required by these baseline parameters are welcome to continue following those practices, so it is always best to communicate directly with the classroom teacher.

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. 

From the Nurse
Please plan to pick up all medication from the nurse prior to 9am on Friday, June 17th
Any medication left in the Health Room after this time will be destroyed. Any medication needed for the following school year will need to be brought in with a new Authorization for Medication form at the start of the 2019-20 school year.

Please call Christie Callahan or Jennifer Gardner RN, BSN at (425)408-7406 if you have any questions.
Attendance & 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

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.
Fee Waivers for Students

Pursuant to House Bill 1660, students who are qualified for free/reduced meals may have extra-curricular/activity fees waived by completing a fee waiver consent form located on the NSD website under the heading of Reduced or Waived School Fees at:  Qualified families are encouraged to complete the waiver form. Information about House Bill 1660 can be found on the WHS website under Resources, Payments/TouchBase.
