Homecoming is quickly approaching.
Here are a few details for the weeks ahead!

Going Away for Christmas Break?
As the holidays approach, please remember to contact the office if your student will miss two or more days of school so we can have them complete a Pre-Arranged Absence form. You can send a note in with your student, call the office at 206-546-7241, or email nwhite@kingsschools.org. The information we need is the dates the student will be gone and the reason for the absence. We will prepare the pre-arranged absence form and get it to your student.

Need to Leave School Early?
If your student has an early dismissal from school, please notify Mrs. White as early in the day as possible so she can alert the teacher to the time your student needs to be released. Advance notice will help us minimize interruptions to the classroom while the teacher is conducting class.

Junior College Seminar Night
Please save Thursday, January 19th at 7:00 p.m. for our college information night for juniors and their families. This is an important evening for staying on track with your process. Additional information will be coming after Christmas but there will be a variety of speakers talking through testing, applications, choosing a college and more. In addition, we will be handing out student’s PSAT scores and providing information on next steps.
