Carpool News!
King’s has a free online carpool-matching tool available for parents at CarpooltoSchool.comThis enables families to search for and connect with carpool partners, and manage their carpool schedule in a secure online environment. Only families who choose to participate in the program will appear in the carpool database. Access requests will only be granted to families enrolled at King’s, so families are assured that they are connecting with other school families.  Please read and review the Carpool Maps. If parents follow the plan, carpool runs smoothly.  All students are enrolled in King’s Kids Club. Carpool students not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be signed into KKC.

Office Communications
When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email both Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@kingsschools.org and Miss Soriano at ksoriano@kingsschools.org. 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.

WeatherBug Station
As winter approaches you might want to check out our KING5 WeatherBug Station that is located on top of our intermediate building. Just click on the link and see the southern sky which includes a peek at the CRISTA Administrative Building and the CRISTA Media Radio Tower. Current school conditions and the forecast are included on the website. King’s Elementary has been a member of the WeatherBug Network for many years. We were one of the first reporting stations that included a camera in Western Washington. You can also see our school listed on the bottom of your television screen while the King5 News is on throughout the day and evening!   http://legacy.weather.weatherbug.com/weather-safety/online-weather-center/OnlineWeatherCenter.aspx?aid=4922

Medication at School
During the course of the school year, your child may need to take medication at school. A “Permission to Administer Medication Form” must be completed with a physician and parent signature. All medications, OVER-THE-COUNTER and PRESCRIPTION, require a completed form and must be in their original containers. Prescription medications, including inhalers must have a prescription label. Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in school office or on Parents Web.

If you would like to renew or subscribe to new magazines for the coming year, we are once again offering an online portal for your convenience. A portion of each order will go to our school and be used for curriculum enrichment at the elementary. Just go to the website below for a list of selections.
