Important Parking Information

Reminder: Parking hangers for the 2019-20 school year need to be returned! Hangers should have been returned to WHS during your designated "Drop Off & Retrieval Day" to avoid a $25 fine added to your Touchbase account. If you still need to drop it off, June 23 and June 24, 10am-2pm, are the alternate return dates/times for students who haven’t returned their items.

 

The deadline to submit early parking applications for 2020-21 on-campus parking was June 15th and the availability of parking applications online is closed now. Online parking applications will be accepted and approved again once the new school year starts.

 

Senior, WaNIC/Running Start students and juniors in sanctioned yearlong activities and fall non-cut sports who submitted an early application will get final approval and the parking fee added to their Touchbase accounts in mid August, barring any unexpected changes to the school schedule.

 

Reminder: All school fines must be paid to be approved for and purchase a parking permit.

 

Please submit on-campus parking questions for the 2020-21 school year to this Google Form.
 
Stay healthy and safe!

2019-20 Yearbook Information
Wondering about picking up your already purchased yearbook? At this time we don’t have an official date yet. We are scheduled to get them in late July! 

1) WHS 2019-20 Yearbook Distribution Update:
As previously announced, the production of Woodinville High School’s 2019-20 Wingspan Yearbook, “Reflections”, was complete and submitted to the production company, Balfour, on April 15th.  Balfour is the company who prints and binds our books. However, due to COVID-19 and state closures, Balfour’s Production Plant in Dallas, Texas was closed. They reopened on May 19th and have been publishing books as safely and fast as they can. We have been assured our book “Reflections” is currently in production. We have an estimated delivery of sometime in late July. Without an actual specific delivery date we are at a standstill as to what we can plan in the way of distributing the book to those of you who purchased a book.
As Yearbook Editor Clara Krause announced during the June 4 Senior Awards Recognition premiere, “Even though you aren't able to have it in your hands today like usual, I hope when you do receive this book you reflect on all that you and your classmates have accomplished…” Clara further expressed, “Sadly we'll have to wait until late July when the book is planning to be delivered to truly see it. Once that time comes we'll have information posted on the WHS website about how to obtain your book.” 
Please continue to monitor WHS E-News from the Principal and the yearbook website found under Activities on the WHS homepage for distribution news. If you have any questions feel free to contact Yearbook Adviser Sharon Alder at salder@nsd.org.

2) Options for Yearbook Signing Tips:
One of the greatest traditions about a yearbook is the ability to have your friends sign your book and due to COVID-19 and School Closures this will not be taking place like is has in the past. With your gifts and abilities with technology I know that you can figure out how to do some sort of “signing party” to connect you with your friends don’t let anything take away your joy of the end of the year. Find a way to make it happen. If you have any great ideas please share them with me at salder@nsd.com. Here are a few suggestions:
1) If you are getting together with friends in small socially-distanced appropriate groups and senior parties you could get either buy address labels (the 4” x 2”) or post it’s to have your friends “sign” your book and then when you get the actual book you could just stick them in your book. (You can find these at office supply stores or the Dollar Story). This can be a fun way to personalize your labels or Post-its.
  • A) As restrictions loosen up and you are gathering with your friends you can actually host a “Yearbook” signing party for you and your friends. It’s a great way to reconnect after our long absence.
  • B) If you are still social distancing, you can have your gathering via Zoom or some platform like Zoom.
2) You could send a Google Doc or Google Form to your friends “signing” your yearbooks and then once you have the book you can print out the signatures and paste them in your book.
