Principal Points- February
I wanted to remind all of you that our Mid-Winter break will be from February 17th- 21st.
In March, we are excited that we will host our Festival of Cultures. Flyers will be coming home in February! Please take some time to see if your family can participate either by setting up a table/ booth or to perform a traditional dance (or both)! This is a very special night that celebrates our diverse cultures at Crystal Springs- I look forward to seeing you all on March 24th at 6:30 PM.
Parents + Students + Teachers= Success

Every Moment Matters- Family Stories
Every moment matters at Crystal Springs.
Please read through the flier. We would love to have a family a week share their family story on our video announcements. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Nielsen at:
SEL at Crystal Springs
It is important to simply listen and talk about feelings to help children become more understanding of others.
Closures and Delays
Emergency and weather-related problems can alter school schedules and affect bus transportation for students.
The district uses an automated message system to quickly send alerts to families. In the event of a school or district emergency, the district will contact families and staff using one or more of the following options: phone call, text message, email and/or push notification. In addition, the district will provide emergency information via web postings, recorded information lines and social media postings. Early morning notifications will be sent as early as 6 a.m., if possible.
If no schedule changes are posted, schools and buses are operating on normal schedules.
Notifications will only work if your contact information is current in the student records system. Please update your contact information annually with your student's school. You may also download our mobile app. Instructions are available on our mobile app page.
FIND OUT IMMEDIATELY
Here are ways to find out if schools will be delayed or closed:
- local radio and television stations provide district/school information on a continuing basis beginning around 5 a.m. Since conditions vary from one district to another, it is very important to listen for mention of Northshore School District #417.
- FlashAlert.net - a self subscription to the Puget Sound Emergency Message System
- Our District Home Page
- Northshore School District Information Line (425) 408-6001 (a recorded message line)
- Your school's main phone number, when the voicemail service answers, press option "9"
- Our mobile app
EMERGENCY/INCLEMENT WEATHER MAKE UP DAYS
If emergency/inclement weather school closures occur, make-up days will be added to the end of the school year.
