Thank you Safety Patrol members for keeping everyone sate as our students and families cross at the intersection of 195th and Dayton Ave N! Be sure to thanks these dedicated leaders as they assist you every school morning and afternoon.

Communications
Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office. This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message. If you send an email to the teacher, he/she may not be available to respond due to teaching students. Please Call Mrs. de Langen or Miss Soriano at 206-546-7258.

Emails and/or Phone Messages
Our school policy is that emails or phone messages from parents will be returned by the end of the next business day.

Carpool Confusion at Drop-Off?
Happy to clarify for you!

  • Students should NEVER be dropped off anywhere on either side of Dayton Ave. N.
  • Students should be dropped off INSIDE the carpool area.

Lunch with Your Children
Parent seating space at lunchtime is limited. Please wait until ALL students are seated to see if there is adequate space for you. You may end up kneeling or standing by your child! Thank you!
