WTA Bus Passes 2020

Unfortunately this year we were only allocated half of free WTA bus passes compared to last year.

Since we will only have a few passes to give out each day, they will only be given for those in urgent need. For example:

  • A student's car breaks down and he/she needs to get home
  • Normal transportation home fell through
  • Need to leave school for an emergency and is the only way home

If you know your child needs a monthly bus pass, they can be purchased at the ASB office for $15.

If your child is staying after school at the Learning Center, they will be given a bus pass if they request one.

A big thank you to WTA for their continued support of Sehome High School students and programs!

Snow/Inclement Weather Information

Dear Families,

With the change of seasons, it’s time to plan ahead for winter weather and how it may affect our schools.

This message will help you:

  • update your contact information,
  • find information on weather communications, and
  • find your snow bus route if your child rides the bus.

Depending on conditions (which could include snow, flooding, power outages, etc.), school could:

  • close for the day,
  • open two hours late with regular bus routes or snow bus routes,
  • open on time with snow bus routes.

Please familiarize yourself with our weather procedures here.

How can I get weather/emergency information?

Any changes to the school schedule are usually announced by 6 a.m., and we use a variety of methods to keep families informed:

  • Alerts: To receive email and/or text alerts, set your communication preferences on the Skylert tab within Skyward Family Access. (Need help? Go here for step-by-step directions or call 360-676-6520.)
