Theatre Tickets - Winter Musical: Curtains
WHS Winter Musical: Curtains Feb 2-4 & 9-11, 7p

Woodinville High School Theatre Company presents Curtains - A Madcap Murder Mystery Musical Comedy! Curtains is the last complete musical by preeminent 20th-century composing duo John Kander and Fred Ebb, the musical minds behind mega-hits Cabaret and Chicago. It blends Agatha Christie-like mystery with the spectacular song and dance of Golden Age musicals, all while poking a bit of fun at the bells and whistles of musical theater.

Set in 1959 Boston, Curtains is a twisty whodunit that tracks the behind-the-scenes misadventures of police detective Lt. Frank Cioffi investigating the death of a new musical’s talentless star. But the stage-struck detective soon finds himself entangled in a romance — and somehow starring in the show itself as it heads for New York and Broadway. The thoroughly entertaining Curtains, which scored eight Tony Award nominations in 2007, including Best Musical, Book, and Original Score, will entertain audiences of all ages - although there is some coarse language and of course murder, so parental discretion is advised. See the press release for further details!

Performances are February 2-4 & 9-11, 7:00p at the Woodinville High School Theatre.

The show is double-cast for some of the lead roles. Within GoFan, the two separate casts are noted as "Cast Murder" and "Cast Mystery". Please see the below photo for a breakdown of who is part of each cast.

PSAT Score Report & Informational Meetings
For students who want instructions on how to interpret their PSAT results, should report to the WHS Theater:

Freshmen & Sophomores– Tuedsay, January 17
Juniors - Wednesday, January 18

How students access their scores:

Scores are posted on

Students who provided their email address on their answer sheet on PSAT test day received an email notifying them when their scores were available. 

The email had a unique access code that connected to their scores online. Students who have not already done so were asked to set up a free College Board account to view their scores. Students who did not provide an email address on their answer sheet on test day can still access their scores online. If a student has not already done so, they will be asked to set up a free College Board account before they can view their scores.

Parents should NOT set up College Board accounts in their name or with their email address. Students should set up their own College Board account with their personal (non NSD school) email address.

Learn more about what the scores mean and next steps on the College Board's Getting Scores website.

WHS Counselors look forward to presenting to your students on these days!

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.

High School Accreditation

Woodinville High School is participating in the Washington State Accreditation process this school year. 
  • This is a voluntary process that takes place every 6 years, where we demonstrate that here at WHS we provide our students with a high quality and rigorous education.
  • Accreditation is an inquiry-based process, tightly aligned to our Strategic Action Plan, and the work we do at WHS. 
  • Accreditation is not only an internal review of how we are doing in meeting our goals, but also an external review process where we share our work and improvement plan with both a site evaluation review team and a state level review panel. 
We are excited about the process and showing off what a great school we have!

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.
