Drop Off/Pick Up Reminders: Safety First

A reminder, for everyone's safety, that being dropped off or picked up in the WHS Bus Zone is not allowed.  It's imperative that this area remains clear for school bus drop off and pick up only. Bus drivers cannot see students that run across the bus zone in front of them to get into or exit a car. 

Additionally, students must not cross 195th Street NE at the Bus Zone entrance. There is not a crosswalk at this location. Students should not be dropped off or picked up alongside 195th Street NE. 

For drop off/pick up, please use the designated Main Office Drop-Off Loop.

Furthermore, for students that have permission to park in the 600 Building Lot, extreme caution must be used when leaving campus to not dart out of the lot in front of incoming school buses. 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important safety matter.

If you should have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Bloomquist or Mr. Dillman.

The WHS Graduation Committee is seeking seniors to sing the National Anthem at the Commencement Ceremony, as well as the Senior Awards Ceremony, or the Moving Up Assembly. Additionally, are you a senior, junior, sophomore, or freshman interested in performing at the Moving Up Assembly? We are also looking for soloists or groups that would like to perform a song of their choice. Auditions are Monday, April 22 at 3:30 p.m. in the Choir Room (409). Students must register at the link below by April 22 (the link is also on the WHS Class of 2024 website under Activities).

Math Tutoring Help

Need help with math? Register here for a FREE session! You can receive help that covers high school levels up to Pre-Calculus. This is free for all high schoolers. For more information please reach out to gabi@centroculturalmexicano.org.


FAFSA/WASFA Information

If you are planning to pursue a certificate program, job training, apprenticeships, or college (2-year, 4-year, trade school, technical school etc.) after high school, they may qualify for financial aid! Even if you think your family may make too much, please plan to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA or WAFSA.

The FAFSA is currently in their "soft launch" phase. Do not panic if the site is down. This is a new process for everyone this year and colleges will have to accommodate this new timeline.

Remember, you can also apply for the WASFA account on the Washington Student Achievement Council website if you’re ineligible to use FAFSA (Take a questionnaire on the link to see if the WASFA is a good fit for you).

Remember to utilize all the resources here to help you fill out the FAFSA:

Reach out to your counselor if you have any questions! It is a confusing process but we can get through this together!


Falcon Food Pantry

The Special Ed Department and WHS are proud to announce the opening of the Falcon Food Pantry on site here in Room 617!  The Falcon Food Pantry is a food bank available to any student and/or family who could benefit from getting some extra, free resources. This is a great new opportunity here on our campus! We are relying on community support to get it up and running and help make it a success!  Food donations will be accepted throughout the school year in the Food Pantry box in the Main Office or in Room 617. Reach out to Ms. Roy if you should have any questions. A wish list of items is posted on the website homepage under News & Events. Thank you for your support!


“I don’t HAVE to mask any more, but should I?”

That’s a very good question!
What are the current recommendations for when you are sick?

Testing is no longer required and we do not have test kits at school any more (if you would like free tests, please visit: https://www.covid.gov/tests). Buuuuuuuuuuuut…

Stay home if you have a sore throat, cough, stuffy nose, or similar symptoms not explained by a pre-existing condition. 

Remain home until symptoms are improving.
Stay home if you have a fever. 
Remain home for 24 hours AFTER the fever has passed.
Stay home if you have vomited or have diarrhea. 
Remain home for 24 hours since the last time you experienced those symptoms.

Student Justice Conference

On Friday, March 22, several of our Falcons attended the Student Justice Conference at Cascadia Community College. The conference was designed for Northshore School District high school students.
The purpose of the Student Justice Conference was to build space for Northshore’s high school students to celebrate their intersectional identities, build community and collaborate with one another, grow their knowledge and understandings about various forms of justice, meet and work with educators and community partners, and learn more about various higher education opportunities.

During the conference, students heard from keynote speaker Christian Paige; attended three workshop sessions of their choice centered around the conference theme that were led by educators, community leaders, UW Bothell students, and Northshore’s Student Justice Collective; and had access to learning about higher education options, opportunities, and resources from UW Bothell and Cascadia College students and faculty.

Thank you to Ms. Tang, Ms. Gasparyan, and Kranthi Yarlagadda for chaperoning.

WHS Accreditation

Woodinville High School participated in the Washington State Accreditation process in the 2022-23 school year. 

  • This is a voluntary process that takes place every 6 years, where we demonstrate that here at WHS we provide our students with a high quality and rigorous education.
  • Accreditation is an inquiry-based process, tightly aligned to our Strategic Action Plan, and the work we do at WHS. 
  • Accreditation is not only an internal review of how we are doing in meeting our goals, but also an external review process where we share our work and improvement plan with both a site evaluation review team and a state level review panel.

We are pleased to announce WHS was accredited for another 6 years, with our school noted as exceptional.
