Mission, Moto, Theme & Philosophy

WOODINVILLE HIGH SCHOOL

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Woodinville High School is to become a community of learners, providing a safe and encouraging environment for developing the mind, body, and spirit.

 

 

Motto

 

“Care, Respect, Leadership”

 

THEME

“One Falcon, One Family”

 

 

PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES

A school is a community of learners, a safe, and encouraging environment for developing the mind, body, and spirit. It remains sensitive to the larger community as a vehicle for its values and as a proving ground for extending its vision. The staff and faculty of Woodinville High School foster a positive, friendly attitude in the school community by modeling an open-minded appreciation of human differences, by demonstrating pride in self and school by encouraging self-discipline, and by experimentation which recognizes learning as a life-long process. Furthermore, the school nurtures an environment warm with humor, rich in challenge.

 

To manifest this philosophy, we specify the following objectives:

1.      To provide a safe and healthy environment for learning, an environment that promotes a positive self-image, sensitive cooperation, and mutual respect.

2.      To provide for students a core curriculum that offers equal access to continued educational opportunities.

3.      To provide elective choices for students so they may select from diverse vocational, avocational, and academically enriched programs.

4.      To challenge intellectually all students at their appropriate level, recognizing the diverse ways by which students learn.

5.      To identify and challenge exceptional students, gifted as well as handicapped.

6.      To help students develop and demonstrate creative expression in the fine arts.

7.      To accommodate physical differences so all students can participate in sports and challenge themselves in recognized athletic competition.

8.      To promote an awareness of social, political, and ethical responsibility.

9.      To encourage cultural sensitivity by acknowledging and teaching cultural differences and encouraging exchange programs.

10.    To nurture civic awareness and responsibility through mutual cooperation with the Woodinville community.

11.    To acknowledge our responsibility for environmental stewardship.

12.    To provide the opportunity to enhance physical and emotional health and to develop healthy habits.

 

To offer a variety of curricular and extracurricular activities through which students may develop talents, values, and social skills.

Student Attendance Profile

Upon request, a copy of a student's attendance profile can be obtained from the Attendance Office.

The profile identifies the dates and periods a student has missed school and indicates whether or not an absence has been excused.

Woodinville High School wants your student to be successful! Parents and guardians can help their student by promoting and encouraging regular, punctual attendance. Being in every class period and on time every school day ready to learn at the bell is very important and leads to a positive learning environment for all students and staff.

Every effort will be made to record attendance notifications received by 2:30 PM on school days. Notifications received after 2:30 PM will be recorded the next school day. Parents and guardians can view attendance by logging in to ParentVUE.

What parents can do to help...

Certain attendance practices completed throughout the school year by parents/guardians and students greatly help their son or daughter and themselves as they near the end of the grading period and face attendance appeals:

  • Parents/guardians contacting the Attendance Office within two school days of any absences and indicate the reason for the absence.
  • Maintaining a record of absences and the reasons on a calendar throughout the school year.
  • Providing doctor's notes for medical, dental or orthodontic visits as they happen during the school year.
  • Students who are not feeling well should check-out with Nurse Pallette in the Health Room before leaving campus as the absence related to an illness verified by the nurse will then be noted as such in the student information system (Synergy).

All parents and guardians should be receiving an automated School Messenger phone call (and email if an email address has been provided to the Counseling Center) when their student has been absent. Following up immediately is important and helpful to all parties.

For a complete copy of WHS's attendance policy refer to your student's copy of the student handbook.

Attendance Philosophy

  1. PHILOSOPHY

A.      Daily attendance and active participation in each class are critical to the learning process. Regular and prompt attendance will help students learn responsibility and increase their potential for future success.

B.      Northshore School District Policy 3200 states that all students shall be in attendance and remain on school grounds from the time of arrival and attend regularly scheduled classes, unless officially excused. Absences due to illnesses or a health condition, the need to seek medical, dental, or other health care, family emergencies, and/or religious observances, shall be excused in accordance with school attendance procedures. The parent or guardian in accordance with the school attendance procedures shall verify excused absences.

1.     Absences whether excused or unexcused may cause a student to lose credit.

2.     Excused absences such as field trips shall not be permitted if deemed to cause an adverse effect upon the student’s educational process.

 

Excused Absences

EXCUSED ABSENCES

A.      A student’s absence is considered excused when verified by a parent/guardian, the Attendance Office, or an administrator.

B.      Absences must be verified through the Attendance Office within two school days; failure to verify an absence will result in an unexcused absence (truancy). Absences may not be excused after the two school days.

C.      All absences that are not verified within two school days will be assigned progressive disciplinary action. If a student does not attend their disciplinary action, further discipline may be assigned.

D.      Absences may be verified by:

1.      Parent/guardian notification within two school days (425-408-7410)

2.      Written excuse signed by the parent/guardian within two school days

3.      An email response to the Blackboard attendance email

E.      When an absence is excused, make-up work will be allowed. Students are responsible to make arrangements for all missed work. Failure to complete missed assignments in a timely manner will result in zero credit for those assignments. A student has the same number of days to make-up work as number of days absent, up to one week.

 

Unexcused Absences (Truancies)

 UNEXCUSED ABSENCES (TRUANCIES)

A.      A student’s absence is considered unexcused (truant) when it is without parent/guardian consent.

B.      Truancies will result in the assignment of progressive discipline (i.e., detention, Saturday School, suspension).

C.      Truancies will result in loss of credit for assignments and/or performance on the day of the truancy.

D.      If a student has three (3) or more days of unexcused absences in a class, regardless of total number of absences, a conference with administration is needed.

 

Late Arrivals & Tardies

  1. TARDIES

    A.      Definition of a tardy: Student is not in the classroom by the bell, ready to work as defined by their teacher.

    B.      Definition of an absence: A student is late to or misses more than fifteen (15) minutes of class.

    C.      Consequences for excessive tardiness:

    1.      Discipline for tardies is defined by the classroom teacher and may include, but is not limited to: class detention and parental notification.

    2.      Excessive tardies: Teacher refers student to the appropriate administration

    3.      Progressive discipline will be assigned by the appropriate assistant principal, which may include, but is not limited to:

    a.        Campus Clean Up – 2 hours

    b.        Saturday School (2 to 4 hours)

    c.        Attendance Contract

    d.        Suspension (In-School, then Out-Of-School)

Early Dismissals

  1. EARLY DISMISSALS

    A.        Early dismissals must be arranged prior to the absence. Requests for early dismissals must be made no later than the end of second (B) lunch (12:30PM).

    B.        Students must provide a note from the parent before school or during options to receive their early dismissal pass as we do not deliver early release notices to students.

    C.        The Attendance Office will not excuse an absence afterwards unless approved by an administrator, which will result in disciplinary action.

(1 regular period equals 1 class hour of instructional time; 1 block period equals 2 class hours of instructional time).

C.      If a student needs to go through this process, he/she must submit a completed Notification for Attendance Validation, along with supporting evidence that includes any and all documentation that could help the committee understand his/her extenuating circumstances (e.g., doctor’s note(s), legal note(s), etc.) to substantiate the absences, for review.

D.      Upon review of your application, you will be contacted by Assistant Principal Richardson, Assistant Principal Conrad, or Assistant Principal Wallace if consequences need to be assigned and you will be notified prior to the end of the semester.

Waiver students, walkers and students destined to alternate locations other than than their primary home address, e.g. daycare, split household, grandparents, are not eligible for transportation.

Students may inquire about available space on a bus by completing a Transportation Request Form. At the beginning of the school year it is necessary to wait until all eligible riders (band students, etc.) have had the opportunity to ride in order to accurately assess the number of students on a bus and available space; this cannot take place until the end of October and we ask families to be patient during this process. Completion of forms does not guarantee a bus ride or change in stop location.

Bus Pass Requests through October

At the beginning of the school year it is necessary to wait until all eligible riders (band students, etc.) have had the opportunity to ride in order to accurately assess the number of students on a bus and available space; this cannot take place until the end of October and we ask families to be patient during this process. During this time, bus passes for regular school bus routes are not available (Activity Bus passes will be available beginning September 7 - see below for Activity Bus pass details).

How do I get a Regular Route Bus Pass?

After Transportation confirms routes at the end of October, regular route bus passes are available from the Main Office before school, during Options or during lunches, based upon availability, as seats are limited. If there is room on the bus, supply the Main Office with a parent/guardian signed note that includes the following information:

  • Date pass is to be effective
  • First and last name of your student
  • First and last name of the student with whom your child is going home
  • Address where your student is disembarking the bus (established stop) - please visit the NSD transportation website to determine the established stop.

  • This service is to assist families with after school transportation when students stay after school for activities (sports, clubs, detention, etc).
  • The activity routes do not have the same bus stop locations as the regular routes.; 1, 2 or 3 bus routes cover the same area in the evening that a dozen bus routes regularly cover in the AM/PM. 
  • Bus stops are limited to ensure all students are transported home in a timely manner and the cost to the schools are minimal.

Parking & Student Vehicle Use

31. PARKING AND STUDENT VEHICLE USE

Due to limited space for student parking at WHS, the following parking plan has been imposed:

A.      Only students who have a valid WHS parking permit in their cars (on the rear view mirror) are allowed to park on campus in designated spaces. Extenuating circumstances are considered with documentation and a one-on-one interview with the Campus Supervisor, Jeani Schwenk. The priority list for parking hangers is as follows:

1.      Seniors with WaNIC/Satellite/Running Start classes where there is no district shuttle offered.

2.      Juniors with WaNIC/Satellite/Running Start classes where there is no district shuttle offered.

3.      Seniors who participate in after school sanctioned sports and pre-approved after school activities.

4.      Juniors who participate in after school sanctioned sports and pre-approved after school activities.

5.      Remaining seniors in the lottery.

B.      The purchase of a parking hanger DOES NOT GUARANTEE a parking space every day. All parking is on a “first-come, first-served” basis. All students must park in designated spaces only. WHS encourages carpooling.

C.      Students may not purchase a parking hanger if they have outstanding fees or fines. The cost of parking hangers are:

1.      $130.00 – Senior/Junior All-Year (includes WaNIC, Running Start/Health Sciences & juniors with yearlong pre-approved activities such as ASB, yearbook, drama, jazz band, orchestra, choir and cheer)

2.      $55.00 – Senior/Junior seasonal sport/pre-approved activity.  Note: The spring season fee is reduced for students participating in sanctioned sports and activities all 3 seasons.

D.      PARKING ON CAMPUS IS A PRIVILEGE. Rules and regulations are in place for safety of all. Students are required to:

1.      Have a parking application on file to register vehicles

2.      Observe the speed limit

3.      Drive and park in a safe manner. NOTE: Reckless driving and unsafe parking will result in loss of parking privileges.

E.      Students are not allowed to park in the following areas:

1.      Staff parking

2.      Bus turnaround

3.      Unmarked non-space areas

4.      Fire lanes

5.      Disabled/handicapped spaces without an appropriate red/white hanger and a completed application

6.      GUEST parking

F.      Students who violate WHS parking regulations will be subject to the following consequences:

1.      $20.00 fine for each violation

2.      Multiple violations will result in Saturday School, as well as, the $20 fine.

3.      Third violation may result in suspension of parking privileges.

On-campus parking irregularities, such as a missing parking hanger, MUST be reported to the Campus Supervisor immediately upon arriving at school.

G.     Students who accumulate three or more parking citations prior to their senior year will not be eligible to purchase a parking hanger until the middle of October.

H.      To loan, sell, or give away a hanger is a violation for both the owner and user of the hanger. The consequences for these violations are suspension of parking privileges for the owner and the user.

I.       Making a copy of a hanger for use or sale is an illegal forgery. The consequence for making and/or using a forged pass is loss of parking privileges and may result in disciplinary measures.

J.      The fee to replace a lost hanger is $25.00.  If the original hanger is found given away, loss of parking privileges for the owner and user of the hanger may occur.

K.      Students who drive to WHS do so at their own risk. The Northshore School District and WHS are not responsible for damage to vehicles or lost or stolen items.

L.      Students understand that by parking on campus they give consent to have their vehicles searched by school officials if it becomes necessary during a school investigation.

It is always recommended that a student contact his/her counselor first to make sure the credit will transfer. Usually, credit earned at an accredited institution will be accepted as long as an official transcript is provided. However, there are some online providers that are not accepted, therefore students are encouraged to visit the OSPI website for accredited schools. To preserve the integrity of the comprehensive high school diploma, 85% of the required credits for graduation shall be earned through the student’s comprehensive high school course offerings. No more than 50% of the graduation requirements in any discipline (subject) may be obtained from an approved accredited institution outside the Northshore School District.

F.        Students who fail a class may elect to retake it. Both the original grade and the retake grade will appear on the transcript. However, the original failure grade will not be calculated in the student’s cumulative GPA, if requested. Students should see their counselor ahead of time regarding where to retake the course.  The student will also need to complete the appropriate form to post the new grade to the transcript.  Student should see their Counselor.

G.       The grading policy shall be:
