Attendance Policies and Procedures
Absences and Tardies
Washington State Law, RCW28A.225.010, specifies that parents/guardians have the primary responsibility for ensuring the attendance of their children at school. Washington State Law also states that students shall be regular and punctual in attendance. If your student receives 3 unexcused absences in a month, 5 excused absences in a month, or 10 excused absences in a school year, a conference with the school is required to review your child's attendance and make a plan for future success. Being tardy and/or missing school negatively influences learning, achievement, and future school success.
At Kapowsin all students are expected to attend class every day, arrive at school on time, and remain in school until dismissal time. Students may enter the building at 8:45 am and should be in their classroom ready to learn before the 9:00 am tardy bell rings. All students need a late pass from the office if arriving after 9:00 am. A parent/guardian must call the attendance office at 253-683-8692 or report the absence on Family Access before 9:30 am any day his/her student is absent from school without pre-arrangement. A note stating dates missed and reason for absences must be received on the day he/she returns to school. A list of excused absence reasons are listed in board policy 3122. The following are some of the most frequent reasons. These are excused if procedure is followed:
- Illness – parent/guardian must phone in by 9:30 am. A physician’s note is required if a student is ill/absent for more than two
- Doctor/Dentist appointments (for STUDENT only): Parent/guardian must phone in by 9:30 am. A healthcare provider note is required when a student returns to school for time missed due to health-related
- Death in the family: Parent/guardian must phone in by 9:30 am each day. Three days are allowed for A note is required when the student returns to school.
- Family Emergency: Parent/guardian must phone in by 9:30 am each day. Family emergencies are considered “excused” if approved by the school principal. A note is required when the student returns to
*Family vacations are not considered excused absences even if prearranged. Prearrangement should be done to avoid phone calls, an in-person conference at the school, and to communicate with the teacher so that the student has an opportunity to keep up with important topics that will ensure academic success when returning.
Lice Issues: Three excused absence days are allowed for head lice treatment. Any additional days will be marked unexcused.
Checking Your Student Out Early
Any student leaving school before the 3:30 dismissal time will reflect a tardy on their permanent attendance record.
Parents/Guardians requesting to pick up their child prior to the end of the day will be required to sign their child out from the office and present picture ID. The child will be called from his/her classroom to meet the parent/guardian in the office area only. If someone other than a parent/guardian is sent to pick up a child, be sure you have notified the office staff by phone call or note. In addition, they must show picture ID. Students will not be released to anyone other than the parent/guardian unless the parent/guardian has contacted the school office.
Emergency Release Procedures
In order to ensure the safest possible learning environment, we have procedures in place in case an emergency such as a strong earthquake or severe storm occurs while your child is at school. Please read and follow the guidelines for emergency pick-up of your child.
- Go immediately to the office or other designated pick-up spot, NOT your child’s You will need to show I.D. and a runner will bring your child to you.
- If you cannot come for your child, please list people to whom your child may be
- If you send someone who is not on our list, please send a signed note allowing us to release your child to this
Breakfast and Lunch
Breakfast and Lunch Services
Breakfast and lunch will be served at no cost to any students who request it. Due to grant restrictions, there is no option for adults to purchase or consume school lunches this year.
Although they will not need to do so this year, students typically use their student district identification number on the kitchen keypad to access their account. It is important for students to practice their number and keep it confidential.
Free or reduced priced lunches
Parents are encouraged to fill out the online application or at the child nutrition office. Our school receives additional money for academic support based on the number of students qualifying for free or reduced-priced lunches.
Reduced Price Breakfast Free
Reduced Price Lunch (K-3) Free
Reduced Price Lunch (4-12) Free (2021-22 school year only)
To apply for free or reduced meals go to: https://www.emealapps.bethelsd.org
Energy Drinks and Candy
Energy drinks which contain large doses of caffeine and other legal stimulants like ephedrine, guarana, and ginseng are not allowed at school. Parents will be called to pick up any energy drink brought to school. It is best to keep high amounts of sugar out of your student’s lunch. Candy is a small treat and should not be brought to school in large amounts for lunch. At the school’s discretion, we will hold candy and return it to the student at a later time.

1. Cougars with Character in Action Awards (CIA):
Any staff member can award a student with a CIA award. Students are recognized for being RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and RELATIONAL. When a student receives a CIA award, they will deposit it into a container in the classroom. On Friday, teachers will draw the winning students for a dip in a treasure box. Two students per class are chosen each week. Students can pick out their prize in the morning right after announcements.
2. Kapowsin Classroom Behavior Awards (KCBAs):
Each staff member will have the opportunity to award other classes with a whole-class award called the “Kapowsin Classroom Behavior Award” (KCBA). Entire classrooms will earn a KCBA for:
- Outstanding Hallway Behavior
- Exceptional Classroom Behavior
- Tremendous Lunchroom Behavior
The category called “other” is also offered in the event of a special circumstance. Specialists may choose to use these awards to recognize classrooms with exceptional behavior; however, any staff member can award any class with a KCBA at any time. Classrooms with 15 awards will get to display a “Principal Pride” trophy and earn an extra recess.
2. Birthday Recognition:
Each day, students with birthdays will have their name announced and will be sent to the office to receive a special birthday pencil by the principal.
All staff contribute to Kapowsin Elementary School’s friendly, inviting environment. We set the tone through our actions and attitudes. Our support and encouragement will be demonstrated through four important procedures:
- We will teach student expectations for responsible behavior in every school environment by relating student actions to our mission and to the importance of being responsible, trying one’s best, cooperating, and treating everyone with
- We will provide positive feedback to students when they are meeting expectations and following the Code of
- When minor misbehaviors do occur, staff will view the misbehaviour as a teaching opportunity, responding with calm, consistent corrections or
- We will work collaboratively with families to solve problems that are chronic or severe in
Character Violations and Office Referrals
Students will receive multiple chances to correct their behavior using the progressive discipline plan.
- Verbal redirection for Level 1 behaviours (see behaviour levels on pages 12-14)
- Time out in the classroom for repeated Level 1 behaviors or Level 2 behaviours
- Buddy room for repeated Level 1 and 2 behaviours
- Recess Reflection for students who have already gotten repeated warnings and visited a buddy room for the same Level 1 and 2 behaviors. Parents will be notified if Recess Reflection is
- After school detention will be assigned for those who Recess Reflection is not changing behaviors or for level 3 behaviors. This will be assigned by an administrator and coordinated with
- Office referral for repeated Level 1 and 2 behaviors or Level 3 (Level 3 behaviors are an automatic office referral)
- For non-threatening behaviors that do not disturb other’s learning, an office referral will be sent to the office and an administrator or designee will come and get the student when they are
- For behaviors that disrupt the learning or cause harm to other students, the student will go immediately to the office with a referral to
After a student has received the progressive interventions outlined for any violation of the Code of Conduct, a teacher or staff member may refer the student to the office. An administrator or designee will determine the progressive consequences that will be issued to the student and contact the parents to notify them of the referral and office consequences.
Teachers will set up a “Time Out/Buddy Room” to provide a place where a student may be sent to cool off, complete a rethinking or processing sheet and get back in control. Students may return before completing the sheet at the discretion of the teacher. The Time Out/Buddy Room concept is designed to help a student make responsible choices to get back to learning in his/her own room. Students will be referred to the buddy room after in-class interventions/redirections are given.
As a consequence of violating the Code of Conduct and earning an office referral, students can be referred for Recess Reflection during their recess time. Students are referred for Recess Reflection as part of the progressive discipline plan. This is a second step before Character Training. Parents will be notified when recess reflection has been assigned.
Students are referred to Recess Reflection for level 2 behaviours by an administrator. Level two behaviors include, but are not limited to, insubordination (disobedient/defiant), bullying, harassment, and intimidation behaviors, inappropriate physical contact, inappropriate language/verbal aggression, and minor stealing/dishonest behaviour.
After School Detention
If Recess Reflection is not changing behavior then after school detention will be used. An administrator will assign the detention and work out with a parent for the students to be picked up at 5:00pm after school.
Detention sessions are not used for study hall purposes. Detention sessions are designed to serve as uncomfortable and inconvenient consequences for students who routinely violate Kapowsin’s Expected Behavior Guidelines. It’s important to note that detention systems are purely designed to produce an uncomfortable experience to change behavior.
Students can be referred for Character Training with our Social Worker if their behavior warrants social skills intervention or peer mediation. Students who repeatedly tease, name call, harass, intimidate or bully other students may be referred. Students should bring home a Character Training notice when Character Training has been assigned. Parents are required to sign the referral and return a copy to the school.
Students can be suspended for fighting, bringing weapons to school, drugs, or other behaviors outlined in school board procedure 3241.2.
Responsibility in Common Areas
Common school areas include such places as the playground, halls, restrooms, and lunchroom. With different staff members supervising these areas, it is important to share consistent expectations for responsible behavior. With clarification of expectations, the staff at Kapowsin can focus on encouraging student responsibility, and reduce the need to correct misbehavior. All staff will use the information on the following pages to teach students what constitutes responsible behavior on the playground, in the halls, restrooms, and cafeteria. Expectations will be taught and re-taught. The younger the students, the more time teachers will spend discussing, modeling, practicing and role-playing. If problems occur in any area, staff will resume lessons on responsible behavior in that setting. All students will receive positive instruction and information on how to behave responsibly in different settings. A copy of the rules and expectations for common areas will also be placed in an information folder for substitute teachers.
Dress and Appearance
Dress and appearance are the shared responsibility of parents and students. Students should take pride in their appearance and not let their appearance distract from the learning environment. Dress and appearance that causes substantial disruption or material interference with school activities or invades the rights of others will not be permitted.
Appropriate clothing is considered:
- Pants that fit appropriately (no sagging or baggy pants).
- Shirts that come below the waistline (no exposed midriffs).
- Shirts with straps with at least a minimum width of two adult fingers (no spaghetti straps).
- Shorts, skirts or dresses should be no shorter than fingertips when standing straight and allowing arms to hang freely toward the
- Shoes which keep feet safe in all parts of the building and playground (slippers, flip flops and high heels are discouraged).
- Hats may be worn On designated “special hat” days, students may wear them in the building.
- Fridays are spirit Participate and show your spirit. (school wear and colors, Seahawks)
Students are not allowed to wear:
- Jewelry, pins, clothing or pictures displaying disrespectful, illegal, immoral, lewd, profane, or drug/alcohol/tobacco-related symbols or Clothing that is gang-related is prohibited.
Depending on the severity of the above violation, students will be given a warning or may be asked to call home for a change of clothes. (This list above is not considered exhaustive.)
Personal Toys or Equipment
Due to the number of conflicts they create, students are not permitted to bring personal toys, trading cards, electronic games and equipment, cell phones, cameras, and shoes with wheels to school. If your child is seen with personal toys or equipment, they will be asked to leave it in the office until the end of the day. If it happens a second time, they will be asked to leave it in the office until a parent can come and retrieve it.
Personal items presenting a danger to others will be turned over to the proper authorities. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter. (Personal sports equipment, like gloves or balls, may be brought to school to be used at the appropriate time. The school does not take responsibility for these items and has the right to ask that they be put away or not brought back to school if they cause any issues.)

Responsibility and Discipline: An Ongoing Process
Establishing a sense of responsibility and discipline is an ongoing process, not a one-time product. The policies stated in this document will not ensure school discipline or individual responsibility. It will, however, facilitate the process. Staff must work continuously to achieve as much consistency as possible and be prepared to revise and adapt procedures as needed. Any Kapowsin staff member may choose to issue a natural or logical consequence in any situation where it would be appropriate. If parents or guardians have any questions, they may contact the office.
Physical altercations at school are not allowed. Students can be suspended for fighting or biting. Students should keep their hands to themselves. Inappropriate displays of affection are not allowed. Each incident will be investigated on an individual basis to determine the cause and action required.
Language at school
Profanity or vulgarity on school grounds is prohibited. Verbal abuse will not be tolerated.
Harassment, Bullying, Or Sexual Harassment (Policy 3206 and 3207)
The district is committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all students, employees, parents/legal guardians, volunteers and patrons that is free from harassment, intimidation or bullying. "Harassment, intimidation or bullying" means any intentional written message or image – including those that are electronically transmitted – verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability, or other distinguishing characteristics, when an act:
- physically harms a student or damages the student's property; or
- has the effect of substantially interfering with a student's education; or
- is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
- has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the
Sexual Harassment—Students and staff are protected against sexual harassment by anyone in any school program or activity, including on the school campus, on the school bus, or off-campus, such as at school-sponsored field trips. Sexual harassment is unwelcome behavior or communication that is sexual in nature when:
- a student or employee is led to believe that he or she must submit to unwelcome sexual conduct or communications in order to gain something in return, such as a grade, a promotion, a place on a sports team, or any educational or employment decision, or
- the conduct substantially interferes with a student’s educational performance or creates an intimidating or hostile educational or employment
Sexual harassment as defined below includes conduct and communication of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. It is a violation of district policy for a student to harass any other student, employee, volunteer, or agent of the district. Violations will be subject to discipline. (Policy 3206)
Student to Staff Sexual Harassment—Sexually harassing behaviors may include, but are not limited to, the following actions: remarks to or about a person with a sexual or demeaning implication, spreading sexual rumors, cornering or blocking a person's movement, using the telephone to harass, following, stalking, or any other conduct that creates a hostile environment for staff. Violations will be subject to discipline. (Policy 3206)
Student to Student Sexual Harassment—Student to student sexual harassment is defined as any unwanted sexual behavior, such as sexually explicit gestures with hands or through body movements, sexual teasing or jokes, pressure for dates, sexually demeaning comments, deliberate touching or pinching, cornering or blocking a student's movement, pulling at clothing, attempts to fondle or kiss, pressure for sex or any other conduct designed to embarrass or to intimidate whenever such harassment occurs on school property or at a school-sponsored event. Sexual assault and/or rape is also a form of sexual harassment and is a criminal act that will be reported to law enforcement immediately for investigation and possible prosecution. Violations will be subject to discipline. (Policy 3206)
Racial Harassment—Slurs are the most common form of discrimination. A slur is defined as an insulting or disparaging remark or innuendo such as a word, phrase, or joke directed at or to any individual or group(s) which is based on perceived differences within our diverse population. Students should be taught to appreciate individual differences and staff should model appropriate behaviours. It is appropriate for public schools to teach these values not only as part of the curriculum but also by precluding slurs which demean others. Slurs, in the context of a school setting, constitute a disruptive influence and students or staff who make a slur shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action. (Policy 5013)
How do I report harassment or sexual harassment? You can report harassment or sexual harassment to any school staff member or to the district Title IX Compliance Officer- Bryan Streleski, Director of Athletics & Security at 253-683-6056 or email@example.com
Students are prohibited from climbing on fences, building roofs, bus safety rails, or standing on benches. If a recess ball should go on the roof or over the fence students should contact an adult.
Gum should not be brought to school or on the bus. Unsanitary disposal habits as well as removal of gum from carpets etc. are the school’s concern.
The school furnishes textbooks and materials for each subject area. Students are encouraged to preserve books, supplies, and instructional materials from unnecessary damage or loss. Unreasonable damage or loss of texts will result in a fine. Report cards may be withheld until fines/fees are paid.
Cell phones and student cell phone use is not allowed in school. Telephone use by students is reserved for emergency purposes only. Be sure your child knows what he/she is to do and where to go at the end of every school day.
Students may make phone calls from the classroom telephone with teacher permission.
Weapons at school
Weapons or anything that may be constructed as a weapon are not allowed at school. Toy guns, knives, and other toy weapons are included. Laser pointers are not allowed on school grounds. Weapons at school will be a reason for suspension.
It is unlawful for students to carry onto any school premises, school-provided transportation, or areas with facilities being used exclusively by public school, any firearm or weapon.
Students who violate the firearm policy will be expelled from school for a minimum of one calendar year in accordance with RCW 28A.600.420. Parents must be notified of the imposition of the expulsion and their right to hearing and appeal. The principal or designee shall notify appropriate law enforcement personnel of known or suspected violations of the firearms policy. (Policy 3249)
Level 1 Behavior is considered MILD and will be handled by the staff person witnessing the student’s misbehavior.
Examples of mild behavior:
Disruption, not completing assignments, teasing, minor disrespect, running in the hall, breaking a common area expectation, talking out, falling out of chair multiple times, wearing a hat, cutting in line, shooting paper baskets, chewing gum, generally annoying habit - not stopping when requested, tapping pencil after asked not to, etc.
Student behavior should be addressed and retaught:

The student will stay in the environment or a buddy room to fill out a “My Side” form if they are not a threat to others or their learning. If the student is a threat to others or their learning they will be sent or escorted to the office at the staff member's discretion to fill out a “My Side of the Story” form. This behavior and consequences assigned will be documented and shared with parents and classroom teacher.

Ms. Hodge, our health clerk, is present daily. Our school has a registered nurse who visits weekly. Your child may visit the health room with staff permission if they feel ill or are injured. State law limits the first aid and other treatment we can give your child here at school. If it is determined that they have an illness, injury or another health issue that needs treatment at home or by a physician, you will be contacted immediately. PLEASE be sure your child’s enrollment form is up to date with your most recent phone numbers and emergency contacts.
Health screening tests are given to students most years for speech, hearing, and vision. If you have a concern, please call the school.
When to keep your child at home: A child exhibiting a runny nose, cough, sore throat, fever, headache, vomiting, head lice or undiagnosed rash should be kept home from school. If a child has had an elevated temperature, he/she should remain home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal. A child ill enough to require any cold medications, (even cough drops) or cannot participate in recess, should remain at home where adequate rest can be obtained. This protects classmates and staff from being exposed unnecessarily to contagious illnesses.
In compliance with state law, students with a Life-Threatening Condition may not attend school until all forms are completed, medication is at school, and a healthcare plan is in place. RCW 28A.210.320, Board Policy 3413.
Students are required to present evidence of his/her having been immunized against the following diseases: varicella, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), poliomyelitis, measles, rubella, mumps, hepatitis b, and tetanus. A student satisfies the proof of immunity (laboratory test results) for measles (rubella) and chickenpox (varicella) with verification from a licensed healthcare provider. A licensed health care provider is required to sign the Certificate of Exemption to exempt a child from school immunization requirements for personal or medical reasons.
A signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information is acceptable. Failure to meet immunization requirements can result in a temporary expulsion from school.
Medication at school
- Prescription and over-the-counter medications (including cough drops, throat lozenges, lip balms, ibuprofen, Tylenol, contact solutions, medicated lotions, cough syrups, allergy pills, etc.) can only be administered at school under the following conditions: Physician orders and parental permission (please complete and return the proper form)

Only touch football is played at Kapowsin. No tackle football or “pile on” type games are allowed.
In the event that a defensive player runs into an offensive player’s attempt to make the catch, a pass interference call will be made and an automatic first down will be given. In this case, the ball will be spotted at the point of infraction. If the point of infraction is in the end zone, the ball will automatically be placed on the offensive team’s one-yard line.
If an offensive player interferes with a defensive player’s attempt to make an interception, they will be charged with offensive pass interference. This is a loss of down penalty.
This is a two-hand touch game; therefore, there will be no intentional contact, between any opposing players, anywhere on the field. The penalty for the team/player on which the call is made, is sitting out for 2 plays
This will not be tolerated anytime in the game. The penalty for unnecessary roughness is an automatic first down for the offense. If the offense commits the foul, it will be a loss of down and yards. Players will not be allowed to continue in the game after Unnecessary roughness.
Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated and any player that uses this conduct may be removed from the game and lose football privileges for a period of time determined by the staff in charge or the administration. This penalty results in an automatic turnover from the point of infraction. Some examples of unsportsmanlike conduct include, but are not limited to:
- Intentionally kicking the ball towards any player
- Intentionally swinging at any player
- Using profanity (swearing), taunting or vulgar language and gestures
- Fighting an opponent
- Punching, striking, stealing or attempting to steal the ball from any player in possession
- Intentionally throwing the runner or any other opponent to the ground
- Intentionally running into a defensive and or offensive player
- Tackling the runner
The penalty for holding is replay of the down. Holding a player from making a play, whether by his/her body or jersey, is illegal and will result in a penalty. The opposing team will have the right to decline this penalty if they wish.
Play begins when the ball is snapped to the quarterback. The center does not have to snap the ball between his/her legs; however, the ball must be touching the ground until it is snapped.
Rushing the quarterback:
Defense will be responsible for calling out the rush count. The rush count is said in the format of
"1-one-thousand, 2- one-thousand, 3-one-thousand, 4-one-thousand, 5-one-thousand, go! Any player that rushes before the defense yells "go” will be penalized for being off-sides. This results in a first down penalty.
The quarterback can run the ball when the five second rule has passed and the defense is rushing.
Four Square Rules
Object of the game: To stay in the game as long as possible and advance to the last square (server’s square).
Procedure: The play in the server’s square begins play by dropping the ball, allowing it to bounce, and then batting it (with both hands, palms up) into any of the other three squares. The serve should be used to start the play rather than to put someone out. The player in whose square the ball lands, must then bat the ball (using one or two hands, palms up) into another square, allowing the ball to bounce before batting it.
Players are allowed to step out of their squares while playing the ball. Play continues until a play makes an out.
Outs: A player is out when he/she:
- touches the ball before it bounces
- bats the ball onto a line
- bats the ball out of bounds
- bats the ball into his own square
- bats the ball with palms turned down
- strikes with the fist or
Rotation of Players: As play begins, each square is occupied. Extra players wait in line. As a player is put out, a new player steps into the first square and the other players move to a higher square (if one is available).

The rules for kickball are closely related to those of baseball with the main difference being the use of a big rubber ball about the size of a basketball. Kickball is played on a field with 4 bases arranged on the corners of a diamond-shaped infield. Player positions are also similar to those of baseball. There is an infield and an outfield. The infield contains the positions that involve the bases, while the outfield is mainly designated for catching or retrieving the ball when it is kicked out of the infield. Actual playing positions vary depending on the number of students actually playing. If there are only a few students playing the positions are usually spread out, but if there are a good number of players, students will position themselves where there is a space.
Gameplay goes as follows: the ball is rolled towards home plate and the player who is up (kicking) tries to kick the ball. If the ball is caught in the air, the kicker is out. A player is also out if the ball is thrown at them, and hits them while they are not touching a base. On a thrown ball, they may only run to the next base. Also similar to baseball, if the ball is thrown to the first base player, and it is caught while the player is touching first base, the player running to first base is out. This is known as a “forced out.” A “forced out” can occur on any base to which a runner is forced to run. Once a team gets 3 outs, the teams switch sides. A team gets one point for having a runner make it all the way around the bases and back to home base. The game is over when the school bell rings, the ball pops, or the ball is lost in such acts as kicking the ball onto the roof. At the end of the game, the team with the most points wins. However, if a team loses the ball by kicking it on the room, that team automatically loses.

Homework is a continuation of learning in the classroom. Your student’s teacher will communicate the specific homework expectation, criteria, and scoring within the first month of school.
A student is expected to participate in our physical education program unless he/she has a doctor’s excuse. Students should wear shoes and clothing appropriate for class. Students should wear proper shoes and shorts should be worn under skirts or dresses.
The school year is divided into two reporting periods. Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled during October and March to give parent/guardians an opportunity to speak with the student’s teacher and look at student’s work.
We hope all of you will be able to attend conferences to discuss your child’s progress. These meetings are a great way to learn more about your child’s strengths and weaknesses and to get a better idea about the school year. To get the most out of the conference, it helps to do some preparation. Below are some questions/ideas you may want to use for conference time.
- What do you want the teacher to know about your child?
- Share favorite subjects, activities, medical needs or
- Are there any changes in your family or lives that may affect your child’s performance?
- Have your child tell you about their favorite and least favorite
- Ask your student about their challenges and let the teacher know so a plan can be
Parent to School communication and working together are the keys to successful results for students. Please remember YOU do make a difference.

Enhanced security systems
During school hours, all school doors will remain locked and access will only be available through the main entrances.
To gain access, parents and visitors will have to press a buzzer outside the school. School staff will then use a camera and intercom system to help identify visitors and grant access to the facility.
Visitation by a school-age non-enrolled student or a student of another school district unaccompanied by his/her parent guardian is prohibited due to liability and is discouraged. Special visitation can be granted by the principal at his/her discretion with limitations. Visitation during instructional time is discouraged. Junior high and high school students are not allowed to visit except at the end of the school day. They must check in with the office and get a visitor badge. To volunteer, they must sign up ahead of time and be cleared by the office.
Loitering around school premises is prohibited.
Only persons with legal authority to do so (such as Bethel Security, law enforcement or Department of Social Services) shall be allowed to question a student on school property without the consent of the student’s parent(s) or legal guardian.
Because staff and students should at all times feel that school and work environment is safe and not hostile, all visitors to school property shall comply with all school board and school policies while on campus and shall conduct themselves in a manner that is not disruptive, threatening, or abusive.
- Any visitor who is disruptive, threatening or abusive shall first be asked to relocate to a place in the facility where there are no students present and the matter can be discussed and resolved in a professional
- Should the visitor refuse to relocate and continue to act in an inappropriate manner, the visitor will be asked to leave the premises. If the person refuses to leave, school personnel will notify appropriate law enforcement. If the incident becomes extreme and the principal is concerned about the person returning to the property a NO Trespass will be issued by the school and the person will be prohibited from being on Bethel School District
COVID-19 UPDATE: The number of parents electing to pick-up and drop-off students is considerably greater than it has been in the past. This has led to heavier than normal traffic patterns that back up onto 264th Street in the mornings from 7:30a - 7:45a and in the afternoons from approximately 3:00p - 3:40p.
Please utilize patience and safety as you navigate this heavy volume of parent traffic. Busses are also impacted by the amount of traffic in front of the school and may be delayed in getting students into the building on time in the mornings and home from school at the identified bus stop times.
Parent Pick-up and Drop Off
We assume all children ride the bus unless parents have made arrangements through email, in writing or via telephone. Students who have regular parent pick-up will stand by the assigned staff member at the front of the loading zone with a permanent “parent pick-up pass”. Please notify the school office by 2:30 PM on the day of any changes to after-school transportation.
If your child normally rides the bus but needs to be picked up by car or ride home with a friend on a different bus, please email or send a note stating such to the office. The office must have confirmation from a parent/guardian for any changes to after school arrangements. The office will give your child a bus pass or parent pick-up pass. If a student tells us they are getting picked up but the school has no confirmation (email, note, phone call,) we assume they are riding the bus. We have had children insist that someone is picking them up only to find out they were mistaken, and we had to find a way for them to get home.
When picking up or dropping off your child, please pull your car up to the loading curb close to the car in front of you. It is important that we fit as many cars as possible in the line. Children should always enter or exit a car at the curb. Do not park in the “No Parking” areas or “double park” as this blocks the way for others.
Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, parents are not allowed to park and gather while waiting for students.
Staff will do their best to minimize wait time. If you have a pre-arranged meeting or need to pick-up or
drop-off student belongings in the office, please park your car and ring the video buzzer at the front door for entry into the building. Children should be accompanied by an adult when walking through the parking lot. Safety is very important to us.
Please be on time when picking up your child after school. Our staff is not always available to supervise your students after the buses leave at 3:40pm.
Parents and guardians are responsible for behavior at the bus stop. Students need to stand and wait at the bus stop in an orderly fashion. Any dangerous activities such as rock-throwing, pushing, shoving, or running across the street are unacceptable. Students are expected to board the bus safely.
If your bus does not come, appears to be late or you have ANY other bus-related problem, please call transportation at 253-683-5900 or 5901. Students are encouraged to share concerns regarding bus behavior or bus-related issues with their driver.
Due to the tight transportation schedule, once students are on the bus, buses will not be held or stopped from leaving so a parent can get their child after dismissal.

We work hard to maintain current information in our school records for each student. Should your child become ill at school or if there is an emergency, accurate information is essential. Please help us by informing the office of any changes in your address, home, work and cell phone numbers, as well as your emergency contact information. Parentvue can be used to change many types of information. If you change address, you must complete a new Verification of Residency form and provide proof of address.
Lost and Found
Lost and found items may be claimed during recess times. The playground supervisors display any lost and found items on the clothing rack in the cafeteria. The lost and found items are laid out in the main hallway during conference weeks. Any unclaimed items are donated to a charitable organization. Labeling your child’s clothing, backpack, and other belongings will help keep better track of their things. Every year numerous jackets and other belongings are unclaimed without any way to identify the owner.
Parent-Teacher Conferences & Report Cards
The school year is divided into two reporting periods. Report cards are sent home in February and June. Conferences are held in October and March. Parent conferences provide you with an essential communication tool for discussing your child’s learning progress and answers to any questions or concerns you might have regarding school. It is recommended that you make a list before you come so you can be sure to get answers to any questions you may have.
Parenting Plan Documents
Washington state law and district policy require that current parenting plans be on confidential file in the office. Documents must be issued in Washington State as those from other states are not honored.
Please review custody documents with the office each September. Questions regarding custody issues and disputes should be referred to your attorney. The legal name as indicated on the student’s birth certificate will be used on all school records.
