Yearbook wants your photos~ Due March 12th
Yearbook needs pictures! For those of you who have purchased a 2021 Yearbook this is your last opportunity to turn in pictures.
Mrs. Alder sent an email home to all students and parents with instructions and the types of pictures we are looking for. Please look for that email and send us pictures. We want you to be in the book because we are One Falcon Family and it is our book. If you have any questions email Mrs. Alder.
All final hours for National Honor Society members are due by 11:59 p.m. on March 26th, 2021. Students will upload documentation of at least 20 service hours total to the assignment on the NHS Schoology page. Please remember to submit ALL service hours for the year, including a resubmission of the hours submitted at the November check.
Students who do not upload their final hours or did not meet requirements from the November check will not be considered for admission into National Honor Society for the 2021-2022 school year. (Yes, students are being inducted into NHS for next year.) Details will follow about the induction ceremony that will take place on May 20, 2021.
Students can view their "grade" on the NHS Schoology to check that they have met requirements for the year so far. There is no appeal process for not turning hours in on time or a cumulative GPA below 3.5.
If you believe we have made an error or have any questions, please contact Ms. Hartinger at email@example.com.

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 During Northshore Learns 3.0
If at any time your student is unable to log in to classes due to an internet outage, we encourage you to contact your service provider. 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.
NSD Communications Department (September 10, 2020, 1:55 p.m.)
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.
During the building closure, the Woodinville High School offices continue to operate on intermittent office hours and work remotely, as are our teachers. However, your communication is important to us and we're "here" to help! Please expect a response to phone calls and/or emails within two business days.
Your patience is greatly appreciated. Thanks for working with us. We miss having our students, parents, guardians, faculty, and staff being here on campus and are wishing everyone in our Falcon Family well!
Beginning Wednesday, September 9, NSD started offering free meals for all children ages 18 and younger.
Students do not need to be enrolled in the Northshore School District to receive meals.NSD requires that all families wear a mask and maintain physical distancing when picking up their meals.Thank you for helping to keep our drivers and families safe.
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
School Supplies As school has shifted to distance learning at home, you may have found yourself needing basic school supplies for your student to be able to complete work. The Northshore Schools Foundation is compiling packs of school supplies to include pencils, paper, and other supplies to make available for student use. To request supplies please complete, or refer others to complete, thisSchool Supplies Google Form.
