What is Start with Hello?
We are pleased to inform you that on September 27 – October 1st, your child will be taking part in Start With Hello Week at Snohomish K-6 Remote. Start With Hello teaches students the skills they need to reach out and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their classroom, school or youth organization.
Last year, over 12,000 schools from across the United States participated in Start With Hello Week to highlight and spread the message of the power of Start With Hello’s three simple steps:
- See Someone Alone
- Reach Out and Help
- Start With Hello
Social isolation is the overwhelming feeling of being left out, lonely, or treated like you are invisible. It is a growing epidemic in the United States and within our schools. Excessive feelings of isolation can be associated with young people feeling isolated, leaving them vulnerable to become victims of bullying, violence and/or depression. As a result, many pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development and/or choose to hurt themselves or others. The positive news is that there are cures for disconnection and loneliness if we reach out and help one another.
We encourage you to talk to your child about the Start With Hello program and ask them to share what they have learned. Not only will that help you learn how to support your child to identify isolation, reach out and connect, and Start With Hello, it also demonstrates to your child that you take this subject seriously and can support them in their actions to create a more connected and inclusive home, classroom, school and community.

Thank you for supporting Start With Hello Week!
Sincerely, Snohomish K-6 Remote Staff
Research shows that regular attendance and punctuality have a positive effect on student learning and achievement. Regular attendance is essential to a student’s success in school.
If a student is going to be absent or tardy from remote school, the parent should call the school’s absentee message line, 360-563-7366, or email email@example.com before 8:30 a.m. in the morning. Messages may be left on the message line at any time night or day. If we have not heard from you, we will attempt to call you to verify your student’s reason for not attending their zoom classes by end of day. Please be aware, attendance is conducted twice a day, in the morning when first logging on and in the afternoon after lunch. The expectation will be that the student attends all zoom related classes to count towards their full daily attendance.
According to Snohomish School District policy, absences due to illness or a health condition; a religious observance when requested by the student’s parents; a school approved activity; a family emergency; a school disciplinary action or short-term suspension as required by state law, are excused.
