Student immunization records for our graduating seniors will be included in the diploma packets. o If your immunization record is not in your diploma packet, you may register your child at https://wa.myir.net/rorl to receive a .pdf of your child's Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) form. You will find this information on the nurse's letter in your packet.
Please make arrangements to pick up the packet, as diplomas are often a piece of documentation needed in the graduate’s near future. As diplomas are not reproducible and the packets contain sensitive information, the packet must be picked up and signed for by the graduate or the graduate’s parent/guardian. Friends of the graduate are not authorized.
Summer hours for pick up after June 29 are Wednesday, July 6 & 13 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the WHS Main Office. Diploma packets not picked up by July 13 will be mailed home to the address we have on file at the beginning of August.

Thank you to our Food & Nutrition Services team for their work preparing for summer meals this year. Lunches are available at no charge to children 18 years of age and younger, and children do not need to be enrolled in Northshore to participate. Adult meals are available to purchase. Meals must be consumed on site and will be served Monday through Friday from June 21-Aug. 19 (excluding July 4 and July 5) from 12-12:30 p.m. at Northshore Middle School.
School Meal Program Update for 2022-23
The Northshore School District, like all others in the state, will again begin to charge for school lunch and breakfast at the start of next school year. The Federal COVID-19 waivers that have allowed U.S. public schools to offer free breakfasts and lunches to all students regardless of income expires June 2022. This means students who apply for benefits and qualify for free or reduced-priced meals will continue to receive meals at no charge in 2022-23, and students who do not apply for or qualify for benefits will be charged at the paid meal price for breakfast and lunch when participating.
What can you do to prepare for next year?
Reapply for benefits in August! Students need to qualify each school year for free or reduced-priced meals in order to continue receiving benefits. Applications will be available in August to apply for 2022-23 school year benefits.
In addition to meals, those who qualify can also receive discounted or free school services including athletic fees, field trip fees, ASB fees, college application fees, and more pursuant to House Bill 1660!
Be prepared for purchasing meals by opening a Titan Family Portal account where you can add money to your student's account, set up recurring payments, see purchases, set low-balance reminders, move money between siblings and even apply for benefits.

NSD Updated Late Work Policy
Second Semester 2021-22
Grading is a complex topic connected to the heart of our work around teaching and learning, and recently the district and teacher’s union agreed upon some changes with regards to late work. Please note the A, B, C, D, & NC (No Credit) grading system has not changed, just the procedure for collecting late assignments.
To address the understandings and teacher workload concerns surrounding late work, the following parameters and strategies have been developed:
When an assignment is turned in more than one week after the conclusion of a specific unit of study, teachers will review the late assignment and:
Provide a “meets standard” grade of 85% for those assignments that reasonably meet the communicated standards; or
Provide a “does not meet standard” grade of 60% for those assignments that do not reasonably meet the communicated standards; and
Provide feedback on the work.
Late assignments will be accepted and graded up until 10 school days before the end of a quarter or semester.
By the way, teachers who have established grading practices that provide students with more opportunities to submit late work without penalty than required by these baseline parameters are welcome to continue following those practices, so it is always best to communicate directly with the classroom teacher.
The COVID Handbook has been updated and reflects NSD's current practices. Please read through this information carefully so that we can work together to keep our students, staff, and families safe. NSD will continue to monitor evolving pandemic data along with state and federal requirements to update this handbook as appropriate.You can find the link to the NSD COVID-19 Handbookhere.
Beginning in fall 2021, Northshore will provide district-issued devices for all students in grades 2-12. This means students in these grades will have a device provided by the District that they may bring back and forth daily from school to their home. The majority of these will be Chromebooks, but other devices may be distributed to students depending on defined needs.
Questions? Families can e-mail WHStech@nsd.org or call 425-408-7669 for technology support.
Power and Internet Outages - What To Do!
We understand that weather incidents may cause a loss of power when students and staff are engaged in distance learning. Our district's Technology, Northshore Learns, and Communications teams collaborated with educators to develop a plan for notifications about power outages, access to service, and how everyone can prepare ahead of time to adjust and continue learning. Please visit our website to learn what to do if your power goes out or if your teacher's power goes out.
Navigating Internet Issues
We encourage you to contact your service provider if you are having Internet issues. We have listed some of the local providers below. You will need to log in to your provider's site to see a map of outrages.
If you have issues with logging into Clever/Schology or issues with a District provided device, please contact our District Family Technology Helpline at 425-408-7669.

Washington's K-12 Internet Access Program:
Check Eligibility for Free Internet Access
Having reliable connectivity to the internet is critical for your student’s success during distance learning. The state recognizes this need, and has partnered with Ziply Fiber and Comcast/Xfinity to create Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program, which gives eligible families free internet access so your student can connect to online learning from home.
Lunch is free for all students for the 2021-22 school year, with the exception of additional milk and ala carte items that are available for purchase. Learn more.
While Northshore is currently providing free meals, this support is made possible by temporary USDA funding. If this funding changes, the District may be required to charge families based on their current eligibility for meals. Have you applied for free and reduced-price meals this year?
If your family qualified last year, you need to reapply this year to ensure that your student receives free or reduced price meals once the current free meals program ends. It is important to apply today so that your eligibility status doesn’t lapse. If an application is not in process for a returning student by October 14, 2020, the student’s account will automatically be transferred to a paid account on the next school day. Please know that the number of eligible students for free and reduced price meals connects to the District’s Title I funding, which provides additional support at schools to help students succeed.
Additionally, if your family income has decreased, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.
In addition to receiving free or reduced-price meals, your eligibility also provides:
- Reduced fee for Camp Cedar Springs
- Reduced fee for PSAT and Advanced Placement Testing
- Reduced fee for sports/athletics
- Reduced fee for summer school
- Access to Backpack Program, which provides backpacks and school supplies
- Access to Operation School Bell, which provides clothes and personal products
Students who are qualified for free/reduced meals may have most fees waived by completing an “opt-in” waiver form located on the Northshore School District website under the heading of Reduced or Waived School Fees. Qualified families are encouraged to complete the waiver form for fees that they wish to have waived. Completing the form will allow a student's free and reduced status to be shared with those administering extra-curricular activities at your student's school or within the district.
Questions regarding the fee waiver process can be directed to Account Specialist Besty Black at email@example.com
A reminder to students to check their @apps.nsd.org email daily for teacher and/or staff communication. Additionally, please check any Naviance Announcements you may receive from your counselor! Naviance Announcements include on-track graduation information, as well as other important news for the student body from ASB and the office.
