Principal's Letter

Hello Eagles.


It has been a great start to the 2020-21 school year and, as we roll into Fall, we are excited to continue working together on this journey of remote learning.


Our Open House/Curriculum Night was a “virtual” success (well, we hope so). If you did not get the link to this resource you can find it here. This has a directory of all certificated staff at Bay with each sharing information around the classes they teach. There is additional information including tips from our counselors. Here is a link for parents on how to schedule Parent/Teacher conferences.


If you need to contact a teacher directly or other staff, please check out our website for a complete list of faculty at bay.vansd.org. There is also other helpful information including office hours, athletic and activity information.


A couple brief reminders:

  • Regular school attendance is critical to student success. Please assist us in monitoring your student’s attendance and encourage them to engage in zoom lessons and log on to Canvas classes daily to get needed information and support. A day of missed instruction is not easily made up-even remotely!

  • We are continuing our focus on the “Bay Way” to create a positive, supportive environment (even during remote learning) and we are working on recognizing students and staff weekly. We have been doing weekly “BayWay Recognition Visits” on Fridays to honor our outstanding Eagles. In case you forgot, our five traits of focus for the “Bay Way” are:

    • Community

    • Empathy

    • Critical Thinking

    • Perseverance

  • If you have not already, make sure you have a Canvas Parent Account. This will allow you to access all of your student’s class information to be able to monitor and support. Information to do this is linked here: How to create an account or this can be found on the WeLearn site under resources. In addition, if you do not have an email account, please go here: Need an email?

  • We have tech support here at Bay several days a week, but tech support is available every day at different school sites. Here is a link to a list in case you need some tech support and Bay is not available on that day.

  • Picture day is coming to Bay Oct. 12 & 13, please visit this link for more details for your grade level and alpha by last name: https://create.piktochart.com/output/48601744-hbhs-picture-day-info

Keep in mind that if you miss a zoom or class meeting because you came to Bay to get your picture taken you will need to connect with your teacher for any missed work; being present for your picture will count as attendance.


The following are some important dates to remember:

  • October 9: Staff Professional Development - No Student Attendance/Classes

  • October 12 &13: Student Pictures

  • October 14: 2 Hour Early Release for students (Teacher Prep for Conferences)

  • October 15: 2-hour Early Release for Parent Teacher Conferences

Conferences for parents 2:30-7:30

  • October 16: Conferences for parents 7:30-11:00 (No Student Attendance/Classes)

Prevention Intervention

Bailee Cragun is a Student Assistance Professional working with Hudson’s Bay High School students to prevent substance use and abuse in our school and in our community. Children and teens who use alcohol and other drugs are at higher risk than adults for developing short and long-term physical, developmental and emotional problems. This is because their brains are still developing and more vulnerable to the effects of drugs. Bailee utilizes the research-based Project SUCCESS model, which offers a combination of interventions designed to meet the unique needs of Hudson’s Bay High Schools students. Bailee provides:

o Early alcohol and other drug education and prevention in classrooms and for school wide-activities

o Screening and early intervention services to students and their families

o Referrals to treatment providers

o Help with transitioning back to school for students who have had alcohol or other drug problems

o Coordination CPWI West Van Coalition

Bailee provides a variety of support groups for students who have concerns or issues that may interfere with their optimal academic progress. The groups focus on the development of skills and self-confidence necessary for students to make positive choices in their lives related to: school success, resolving conflicts, coping with grief, peer pressure, self-esteem, anger management, and drug and alcohol use. The purpose of these time-limited groups is to help students develop skills necessary to realize their academic and personal potentials

We are confident that this statewide program delivers high quality services specifically designed to meet the unique needs of Hudson’s Bay students. If you have someone you want to refer or have any questions contact Bailee.

Stormwater Education

Vancouver families depend on clean rivers, streams and lakes for swimming, fishing and preserving habitat for future generations. You can help reduce one of the biggest threats to our waterways, pollution left behind from everyday activities that gets picked up by stormwater.

We all contribute to stormwater pollution, so we all need to be part of the solution. Here are three easy tips you can follow to reduce water pollution and help protect our rivers, streams and lakes.

Only rain down the drain. As simple as it sounds, this is the most important principle for reducing water pollution, and it should be taken literally. Whatever goes down the storm drain almost always ends up in our streams. Even if you’re not putting anything directly into a storm drain, be aware of what runoff can pick up from your home and yard. This includes grass clippings, car washing soap, fertilizers and pet waste, just to name a few.

“Natural” can still be pollution. It’s easy to overlook pollutants that seem “natural,” such as grass clippings, pet waste and organic fertilizers. In our developed communities, these are significant sources of pollution. Fecal coliform is one of the top pollutants found in streams, and much of it comes from pet owners who don’t pick their pet’s waste. Nutrients in yard debris and fertilizers feed potentially toxic algae that deplete water of oxygen needed by aquatic life.

Sweep it up, don’t hose if off. Using a hose to wash away a spill or clean the driveway is a sure way to send pollutants to our streams. Instead, use a broom and dustpan to sweep up pollutants, close them in a bag and put it in the garbage. For liquid spills, put down an absorbent material, such as kitty litter, and sweep it into a bag before disposing in the trash.

For more ideas, visit www.clark.wa.gov/cleanwater and thank you for being part of the solution.

School messages will now reach more families

VPS is always looking for ways to improve communication with all of our families including families with students who have multiple residences. In response to parent requests, these families now will receive auto calls and emails from their school. The following criteria must be in place:


  • The family must be listed as the “second” family on the school registration form.

  • The family must also be signed up for the district’s online Parent Access.


At this time, attendance messages will continue to go to the parent who has listed their phone number and email as the primary contact. Parents who do not wish to receive school messages can opt out from receiving emails and calls.


Instructions to opt out:

  • Opting out of auto calls: Call 855-502-7867 from the phone number that is receiving the phone calls you wish to stop.

  • Opting out of emails: Parents can click on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email to stop receiving emails.

Сообщения из школ теперь будут доходить до большего числа семей

Ванкуверские государственные школы (VPS) всегда ищут дополнительные пути улучшения поддержания контакта с семьями всех наших учеников, включая те случаи, когда учащиеся проживают не только в одной семье. По просьбам родителей эти семьи теперь будут получать из своих школ автоматизированные звонки и электронные письма. (email). Для этого должны быть выполнены следующие условия:


  • «Вторая» семья, желающая получать сообщения, должна быть указана в разделе «Non-custodial parent» на регистрационной форме.

  • Семья должна быть также зарегистрирована для получения информации онлайн по программе района, которая называется «Доступ для родителей - Parent Access».

В настоящее время сообщения о посещаемости и пропусках, по-прежнему, будут поступать на номер телефона и электронную почту родителя, который на регистрационной форме указан как основное лицо для контакта.

Родители, которые не хотят получать сообщения из школы, могут отказаться от получения электронных писем и звонков.

Инструкции для отказа от получения информации:


  • Отказ от автоматизированных звонков: Наберите 855-502-7867 с телефона, по которому вы получаете звонки, поступление которых вы хотели бы остановить.

Prevention and Intervention Specialist

Did you know that 1 in 5 Washington 10th graders reported using marijuana in the past 30 days? Marijuana can change the way a teen’s mind and body perform, affecting memory, learning, mood, motivation, coordination, and judgment. However, there are ways you can help prevent teens from using marijuana. Research shows adults are the number one influence in teens’ lives, especially when it comes to making healthy decisions like not to use marijuana. Teens watch and listen to the adults they know and respect. When influential adults are present and engaged, teens are happier, healthier, and make better choices.


To learn more about the risks and consequences of using marijuana, and tips on how to talk about it with the teens in your life, visit StarttTalkingNow.org or Tina Johnson, Prevention and Intervention Specialist at Hudson’s Bay High Schooltina.johnson@vansd.org or 360-313-4431

School Credit for Students Who Are Working:

The Vancouver School District recognizes that work experience can be a valuable learning experience for a student. A student who is working at a real job and is at least 16 years of age, can get high school credit for their work hours. For every 180 hours of verified work experience, the student receives a .5 credit. This credit can replace any Elective or Occupational Ed. Credit that the student needs in order to graduate. The credit will also go on the student’s transcript and the grade will be an A – which will help increase the student’s overall G.P.A. score.


Students must be working at a real job and not paid under the table. They also must be at least 16 years of age in order to be enrolled in the Work Based Learning program.


Students may earn up to 2.0 credits of Work Based Learning for each school year. Every Work Based Learning credit earned is listed on the student’s transcript and is graded as an A. This will help the student’s overall G.P.A. score.


Please see Mr. Griffiths (Tom.Griffiths@vansd.org) in office 318 to get signed up for the program.

Student Welfare and Attendance

Vancouver School District’s goal is to ensure that students attend 90% or more of the school year. With that, we hope to reduce the rates of chronic absenteeism to a minimum. What is chronic absenteeism? Chronic absenteeism is defined as instances where a student is absent for more than 10% of instruction time in a school year or missing about 2 days per month.

USE OF CELL PHONES BY STUDENTS:

Possession of a cell phone by a student on school district property is a privilege which may be revoked if the student does not follow this district policy:

During classroom and instructional time, the cellular telephone must be “OFF & AWAY”. Text messaging is NOT allowed during classroom or instructional time. If a student uses his/her phone during instructional time and a staff member asks for it to be handed over to him/her, the student must relinquish the phone immediately or will be disciplined for failure to cooperate.



ANY STUDENT WHO POSSESSES A CELL PHONE ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ITS CARE. AT NO TIME IS THE DISTRICT RESPONSIBLE FOR PREVENTING THEFT, LOSS OR DAMAGE TO A CELL PHONE OR ANY ELECTRONIC DEVISE BROUGHT ONTO ITS PROPERTY OR TAKEN TO AN OFF CAMPUS SCHOOL SPONSORED EVENT.

WHAT IS HBF?

The Hudson’s Bay Foundation (HBF) is a 501.3c non-profit school-wide Booster Club for Hudson’s Bay High School that was formed in February of 2010. HBF’s Mission is to ‘benefit the students of HBHS’, through various fundraising efforts and a unique Grant process. HBF’s Board is composed of parent volunteers, alumni, and retired faculty, coaches and administrators, all serving with the goal of assisting the students at Hudson’s Bay. Over the 10 years of this group’s existence, more than $156,800 has been given to a wide range of athletic, activity and academic programs, including assistance with payment of ASB and athletic fees which can prevent low income students from participating fully in all high school has to offer.


Two major fundraisers have been held each year prior to spring of 2020 - the March Madness Silent Auction and the August Golf Tournament at Lakeview. We hope to hold these events again in 2021 if the pandemic protocols allow large gatherings. In the meantime, HBF will be relying on donations which can be made in two ways: by mail to Hudson's Bay Foundation, P.O. Box 61804, Vancouver WA 98666 or by credit card on the HBF website "Donate" page. Donors can earmark their gift for a specific purpose or program, and a receipt with the HBF tax I.D. number will be provided.


Donations from HB alumni will be tallied as part of our “Soaring Eagles” competition. Alumni donations to date total over $156,000. Businesses also contribute by sponsoring components of our fundraisers, by purchasing advertising for athletics and by monetary donations.


Please join us in our efforts to help the Hudson’s Bay Students!
