    Changes to a student’s daily going home plan

    Occasionally, we need to change the plan of how our child is going home at the end of the school day. If this is the case for your family, we ask that a guardian calls the school office at 425-385-7900 by 3:00 p.m.  Please mention the name of your student, teacher, and the change of plan.  Our office will then send out a messenger to deliver this information. We ask that you please not email teachers with same day changes as they may not see the message before the end of the day.  This method of communication helps to support our staff with accurate message delivery.
