2020-21 School Year: Remote Learning Edition

September 21-25, 2020

Pledge of Allegiance with Fife Unified and Isabella!

Remote Learning Week 3!

Isabella often leads our Pledge of Allegiance when we are at school, during Unified Club this past week she led the way again, if you need a nice start to your day give it a view!


Students, Monday be looking for an email that will provide you with all our club and activity information during remote learning. We want to get you involved, and you don't have to wait for in-person instruction for you to be able to do that.


Last week we asked our Fife students to identify the one challenge in their life that if they can push through, persevere, and overcome, could lead to a major life accomplishment. Students as you think about your "mountain to climb," you don't need to think on a large scale... it can be small. Have you been engaging in class with comments and dialog? Taking the step to raise your hand, have your camera on, give commentary, and answer questions? If your struggling with remote learning, choosing to engage can enhance your remote learning experience significantly.


Have a great week!


Mr. Bakke

Seniors who Signed up for Parking!

Rescheduled Senior Parking Registration will be on Wednesday September 23rd in the Student Parking Lot between 2:00pm-3:00pm. Please follow these procedures and steps:


  • This will be a Drive-Thru event with no need to leave your car.
  • Students will enter the parking lot off 23rd Street and we will have people there to collect paperwork, check license, and select your parking spot.
  • Before you leave we will have you tentatively sign up for painting days that will be dependent on the weather.
  • There will be no painting on Wednesday.


Look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday! If for some reason you are unable to make it to registration on Wednesday we will have opportunities for you to come to one of our scheduled painting days and turn in paperwork and pick a location. Please email Mr. Meyer if you are unable to attend.

Returning Students

Returning students maintain their prior year’s free or reduced eligibility for the first 30 school days, or until a new application is processed. If a returning student does not have a new application processed by October 15, 2020, they will automatically be transferred to a paid account on the next school day. Families are responsible for any charges incurred.

Please notify Toni Barnett, Manager of Food Services (253.517.1000) if a returning student has a newly enrolled sibling so that we may extend the 30 school day eligibility to the new student. Families will still need to complete a new application to avoid any unnecessary charges.
