Principal's Corner

Hello Eagles.

It has been a great start to the 2022-23 school year and, as we roll into Fall, we are excited to continue working together to make your student’s year at Bay the best one yet.

In this newsletter, you will find more information on our upcoming Curriculum Night on September 29 and our Parent-Teacher Conferences in October. I look forward to seeing you at these upcoming events.

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

For the 22-23 school year, we have some important work ahead! The next 18 months are an important time for our school district because we are going to be working to redefine VPS’s vision, goals, objectives and priorities. As part of a process called strategic planning, we will be gathering input from students, staff members, families and the community in many different ways so that your thoughts and feedback will be the foundation to shaping our path forward. Because our final strategic plan will guide our work for the next five years, we want to ensure it reflects the shared hopes and goals of the people who learn, work and live here.

Please join us in the first phase of the project by providing your personal hopes, aspirations and dreams for our students now:

Finally a few other important reminders/resources to support your student at Bay:

  • Regular school attendance is critical to student success. Please assist us in monitoring your student’s attendance and encourage your student to attend class each day, every day and to be on time! A day of missed instruction is not easily made up!

  • We are continuing our focus on the “Bay Way” to create a positive, supportive environment and we are working on recognizing students and staff weekly. In addition, we have added regular Eaglie time (Mondays and Friday) to support our students. In case you forgot, our five traits of focus for the “Bay Way” are:

    • Community

    • Empathy

    • Critical Thinking

    • Perseverance

    • Ownership

  • 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. In addition, if you do not have an email account, please go here: Need an email?

  • Also, make sure you have your Skyward Account. This is a great way to monitor your student’s attendance and grades. To access your Skyward Account go to In the upper top left click on "Skyward". Enter your login and password. If you can't remember your login and password call Mary Lou in the front office 360-313-4440. She can help you reset your login and password.

Dean of Students Updates

What an amazing first few weeks we have had here at Bay. It's been refreshing to see students and staff reconnect and hit the ground running. The Bay Way is alive and well. Community is one of the traits here at Bay and a major focus for the beginning of the school year. I witnessed this firsthand as students welcomed other students in and teachers are building community within each classroom. Every week we have a student or parent, nominate a teacher that shows one or more of the Bay Way Traits. If you would like to nominate a teacher click this Bay Way Nomination Form to give that shout out.

Activities Updates

What a start to the year! It’s been such a joy to have students back in the building after a couple months away. Since returning we’ve had our Back-to-school BBQ which was wildly successful. Over 700 people, both students and their families, visited Bay that evening. On top of that we had picture day on 10/25. Don’t worry if you missed it, we’re having retakes on 10/17. Looking ahead, we are focused on October. Parent/teacher conferences are on 10/13 and 10/14. There’s both afternoon and evening options, so please communicate with our teachers to ensure you’re able to attend; These conferences are a great way to stay informed of your student’s progress. Lastly, with football season in full swing we’ll have our Homecoming dance on 10/29. This dance is exclusively presale. This means students must purchase tickets prior to the dance. More information will be shared regarding this event, so stay tuned. As always, I’m just a phone call away. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Curricular Updates

Hello Eagle families~What a fantastic start to what I know will be an incredible year together. Please mark your calendars for Curriculum Night on Thursday, 9/29. We will begin at 6pm in the main gym with a presentation from students and administrators; we hope you'll join us for this evening to gain a firsthand experience of our #bayway culture and climate.

October will provide the opportunity for 1:1 parent/teacher conferences on Thursday & Friday, 10/20-21. Thursday will be offered 2:30-7:30pm and Friday will be 7:30-11am. You may sign up at Curriculum night or email teachers directly.

Athletic Updates

Welcome back Eagles!!!! My name is Greg Roberts and this will be my fourth year serving as Athletic Director and Associate Principal. I’ve had a wonderful summer coaching little league all star baseball and it has given me a great perspective of the work our coaches put into their program and the challenges they face. Our goal this year across all of Bay sports is to create a sense of belonging in each of our programs. We want our athletes to feel welcome, they have a home, and know that we deeply care about each and every athlete within each of our athletic programs. One way to increase belonging is for me to incorporate more student voices on a regular basis. Our athletic program will be intentional about meeting with students on a regular basis as well as creating a parent committee to discuss all things Bay athletics. In addition, we want to continue to showcase our student athletes this year and include real life applications to some of our CTE courses. Our student athletes work hard to be the best student athletes that they can be and we want to honor them and highlight their work on a more consistent basis. “Build the Bay” will be a phrase you hear referenced often and something we look forward to developing. The most immediate way you can help us “Build the Bay” is by coming out for a sport and buying into our athletic program. At Bay, we continue to need more parental involvement in our athletic programs. Please support your student athlete by helping with various jobs (score keeping, lines, etc) and asking the head coach how you can help as a parent. We have a wonderful group of coaches who care more about their kids as an individual than as an athlete, a group of coaches who will mentor their kids through challenging situations, a group of coaches who will pursue academic goals with their athletes, and a group of coaches who demonstrate the BAYWAY everyday. When you participate in a sport you build a sense of family with other students and staff here at Bay. Engaging in extracurricular activities is critical to the engagement, growth, experience, and development of our students, we want you to be a part of it!

Student Survey Notification Letter

Dear VPS Families,

We thank you and your family for being our valued partners as we work together to educate the children in our district. As you may already be aware, building our social-emotional learning skills is an important goal for our schools this year. VPS is utilizing Social Emotional Learning curricula for core instruction. In Kindergarten - 8th grade all students are using Second Steps and 9-12th grade are using Character Strong. We need to hear from your child or children! Students are important partners as we work to improve our communication, academic program and overall experience for everyone.

In order to learn more about student experiences at school, we will be asking for your child’s feedback via an online survey they will be completing at school in grades 3-12. This is the same survey students took last year and will allow us to examine levels of growth and change. The survey shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to complete.

We are asking that all of our students in grades 3-12 participate in the survey, as their feedback will provide invaluable insights into their experiences and how we can improve and adapt our district to their needs. If a student doesn’t feel like they have enough information to answer a question, they will be able to skip the item altogether. The responses to these surveys will be used by building staff to provide building-wide, small group, and individual supports for students. We are partnering with a third-party vendor, Panorama, to support us in administering these surveys. For Panorama FAQs, visit this link: FAQs | Panorama Education . To see VPS FAQs click this link: Survey FAQs.

The survey content will ask students to self-reflect on

  • Positive feelings

  • Challenging feelings

  • Supportive relationships

  • Sense of belonging

  • Self-Management

  • Emotion Regulation

  • Social-Awareness

  • Self-Efficacy

  • Growth Mindset

To see the entire survey, click on the links below:



Please fill out the 22-23 Family Income Survey Here!


How are we able to offer meals to all students at no charge? Through implementation of a program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP will be implemented at all sites next school year, which ensures all students will continue to eat for free. Our ability to implement this program is a result of funding secured by the passage of HB 1878.

Are we still collecting meal applications? No. We will no longer be collecting meal applications. Instead, we will collect the Family Income Survey (FIS) to accurately capture the economic profile of district students.

How will the FIS be distributed? An electronic version of the FIS will be sent to all families, however, each school should have paper copies available for families to complete. If families return the FIS to school offices, they should be sent to the NS department, they are confidential.

Can students collect just a milk at no charge? No. We must charge for a la carte milk purchases (0.45). Students are encouraged to select a reimbursable meal, even if they only want the milk. They can place some unwanted items on the share table for other students to select if they are still hungry.

Can students bringing cold lunch have a school meal at no charge? Yes. All students have access to school meals at no charge.

Can adults have meals at no charge? No. We must charge for adult meals.

Can visiting students have a school meal at no charge? Yes. School-age children visiting from other K12 districts may collect meals at no charge at CEP schools.

Can students with special dietary needs access a modified meal at no charge? Yes, but we need to collect a dietary prescription form (link on website).

For further information, please contact VPS Nutrition Services @ 360-313-1190 or email

Build Trades is Building!

The Construction Building Trades students in the ACES Magnet completed building the shed for Mr. Burt. Students presented at the Port of Vancouver, and thanked the Port for their generous $3K donation which funded the shed build. Much thanks to our local sponsors, Sherwin Williams Paint, Dion Rhodes Painting, GAF Roofing, Wolf Industries, Cal Portland, and all of the hard working Year 2 and Year 3 students in Mr. Gunderson's Building Trades classes.

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.

Please see Mr. Griffiths ( in office 318 to get signed up for the program.

Prevention Intervention

Bailee Cragun is a Prevention and Intervention Specialist 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. │360-313-4559 │360-952-3465

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 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.

Questions? Please call our school office at #360.313.4400

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.

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.


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.


Big picture


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!
