Office Communications

When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@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 the office at 206-546-7258.

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.

Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in school office or on Parents Web.
