Today's Schedule

COVID-19 Testing for Woodinville High School

On Monday, September 20, the Northshore School District launched the COVID-19 testing program for all students grades K-12. All students will be tested weekly, unless a parent or guardian completes an opt-out form. As the name “batch” suggests, everyone in a classroom or cohort puts their test samples together in a batch vial with no names or personally identifiable information.

A few key points to emphasize:
•    Students in Grades K-12 will test weekly.
•    Your child will be tested unless you opt out your child by clicking on this link.
•    The opt out form asks you to enter your student’s ID number. This can be found on each student’s identification card above the barcode, as well as on the student’s report card. You can also view it by logging in to ParentVUE or by contacting the school’s main office.
•    If you wish to opt your student out of testing, you must complete the opt-out form no later than 10 a.m. the day before our school’s scheduled test day which is Wednesdays.
•    If a student or staff member is opted out of testing, but their cohort has a positive COVID test result, they may still be required to quarantine for 14 days.

Your student’s participation will help us keep transmissions in our school buildings low so we can keep school buildings open. Thank you for your consideration.


Vaccine Clinic for Secondary Students: Registration required in advance

As Dr. Reid announced in her September 16 "Thursday Thoughts", the Northshore School District will begin another round of mobile vaccines started Monday, September 20 for middle and high school students.
Multiple teams from the Shoreline Fire Department will administer the Pfizer vaccine for all students who are 12 years of age and older and would like to be vaccinated. Please know that the COVID-19 vaccination is not mandated by the District.
Families who are interested in having their student receive the Pfizer vaccine at one of these clinics, must complete a registration formRegistration must be submitted by noon the day before the scheduled date for each clinic. Woodinville High School's clinic dates are: 1st Dose September 28; 2nd Dose October 19, with the clinic time from 12:30-1:30pm for both doses. In order to plan accordingly, all registrations for Monday’s clinics on September 20 (both are not at WHS) must be submitted by noon on Sunday, September 19.
Per Dr. Reid's message, if a clinic isn’t scheduled at a student’s school, families can register them for the vaccine at another school. Students attending the clinic, who are not already learning in-person on the designated campus, need to arrive within the first 30 minutes of the scheduled clinic time to ensure there is enough time to administer the vaccine and have at least a 15-minute waiting period after receiving the dose.
More information can be found on the district's Vaccine Clinics for Secondary Students webpage.
