Welcome back from the Whittier Teachers
In the coming week students will recieve their class assignments by mail. Below are links to welcome letters from the teachers. This list will be updated as letters become available. Welcome Back!



Kindergarten Graduated Start at Whittier
Kindergarten Graduated Start will be from 9/3-9/8. This means that for Kindergarten students, school will be from 8:40 am - 11:40 am. Kindergarten students will start going on a full schedule on Tuesday, September 9th (8:40 - 2:50).

So, when you are out buying school supplies, please pick up a few extra supplies see list below and drop them in the labeled boxes by the office.

Class Supply Lists for 2014-15

Here are the class supply lists for the 2014-15 school year (this will open as a Word document). Additional supplies may be requested after school starts.


Parking Safety Update

Traffic safety continues to be a problem around our school. Cars frequently park in the No Parking zones, which include the marked bus zones along 13th Avenue NW. (Incredibly, some drivers have been seen moving those safety cones out of the street and parking there anyway.)

Student crossing guards have noted that many cars park within 20 feet of a crosswalk, which impairs sightlines for pedestrians, and is illegal.

PARENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO FOLLOW ALL TRAFFIC RULES TO KEEP OUR STUDENTS SAFE!



New School Volunteer Requirements

Seattle Public Schools has a new requirement that all school volunteers complete an online course on Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention and sign off on the Volunteer Hand Book. Existing volunteers have until the end of the school year to view the Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention video and complete the online course. After course completion, volunteers will receive an online certificate to either email to the school office or print out and bring in.

All volunteers are required to read and sign the Volunteer Handbook at the time they sign up to volunteer.

Volunteers are required to take the online course on Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention and sign the Volunteer Agreement only once, but are required to fill out a WATCH background check form every year (available in the front office).
