Message from Principal Doug
Greetings AIM students and families, Hey Graduating Seniors! We are working with a local company to make yard signs available for purchase. They have kept the cost affordable (About $13) and are creating an online store for you to make and customize your order.
We will send out a link as soon as we get it! Please contact us if the cost is a barrier. We want everyone to have a yard sign that wants one. See below for examples of the different options available.
Important Message for Seniors
Graduating Seniors – Important Fine Ledger Information
Fine ledgers will be mailed on May 10th. Fines must be cleared at the school in which the fines were incurred. For those fines incurred at AIM, you can pay at AIM by cash or check made payable to AIM High School. For fines incurred from Glacier Peak High School or Snohomish High School, fines need to be paid at those locations or you can use the following link to pay fines on-line. If you have a fine for the Protection Plan-Laptop, those can be paid at AIM. The link for on-line payments at Glacier Peak and Snohomish High Schools is: https://wa-snohomish.intouchreceipting.com/
Official diplomas will be held until fines are cleared. Please call 360-563-3400 if you have any questions.

Community Service Requirement Waived for 2021 Seniors
The district has made the decision to waive the senior community service requirement for the class of 2021. The expectation is for the requirement to be re-instated for future graduating classes. Graduating seniors this year do not have to do community service hours!
Attestation Training for High School Students
However, our school nurse is always on hand at arrival times to do the attestation with you in case you haven't done the online version.
Below attached is a PDF with instructions on accessing your student email account on your mobile device.
Thank you for your patience as the district works out the kinks in this email system!
