Thanksgiving Break - No School Nov 25-27

A reminder that there is no school from Wednesday, November 25th through Friday, November 27th. Enjoy your Thanksgiving Break!

Important Information Regarding 1st Quarter Progress Reports

Quarter one grades are now posted. This is a progress report to show how your student is doing academically at this time. Please check your student’s grade by logging into your Skyward account or logging in together with your student through your student's Skyward account. Progress reports are also being sent via USPS mail. If you do not receive a progress report, contact the school at (425) 431-7650 to make sure we have your correct address.

If your student has earned a D and/or No Credit (NC) in any classes, then he/she is in danger of losing credit for that course at the semester. It is important to remember students must earn credit at the semester in all classes to remain on track for an on-time graduation. Please reach out to your student’s teachers about these concerning grades, or to their counselor about possible needed supports.

End of the semester is February 3, 2021. Final grades will post following that date.

Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Break!
