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.
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.
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.
