New cell phone policy
The use of cell phones in the classroom can distract students from instruction, yet can be important to have accessible in case of emergency. With this in mind, the district has adopted a new policy 3246 and procedure 3246P which prohibits cell phone use in the classroom while still providing access for students in case of emergency.
Elementary school students who choose to bring cell phones to school may only use them before or after the school day. During the school day, they must be powered off and stored (e.g., in the student’s backpack, locker, other district provided storage). There will be storage in the classroom so, in the event of an emergency, the cell phones will be accessible without leaving the classroom.
The first Friday of every month is Spirit Day! Our Student Council has decided on the following themes for the 2019-20 school year:
December 6: Pajama Day
January 10: Tie Dye Day
February 7: Heart Day (Wear pink & red)
March 6: Class Color Day (colors TBD)
April 3: Twin Day
May 1: Crazy Hair Day
June 5: Eras Day (80s, Hippie, Futuristic, etc.)
In an effort to reduce the impact on a single grade level for our assemblies, we are rescheduling them so they will alternate between morning and afternoon events. The schedule is below, as well as on our calendar. When your child is selected to receive an award, you will receive an invitation that will remind you of the date and time.

January 14 - 9:00 am (Grades K-2) & 9:30 am (Grades 3-5)

Attending school each day is the first step to a student's success in school. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about our attendance procedures:
How do I report my student's absences?
1. The easiest way for you to report your student's absence is to send an email to MOEAttendance@everettsd.org from the email account you have on file with us and include all of the required information.
2. If you call our 24-hour attendance line at (425) 385-7305 and leave a voice message, you MUST also do ONE of the following:
a. Send in a hand-written note with all of the required information on it to verify the absence OR
b. Send an email to MOEAttendance@everettsd.org from the email account you have on file with us and include all of the required information.
What is "all of the required information" I must send in writing?
So, even though I call in an absence, I still have to send in a written note?
Yes, you must send the required information in writing.
What if our family will be going on a vacation or my student will be missing school for an extended period of time?
