Welcome to the 2010-2011 School Year! Put a circle around Wednesday, September 8th on your calendar. This is the first day of school for the 2010-11 school year. We can expect to see students with brightly colored backpacks and new school supplies boarding the yellow and black school buses on their way to their first day. While our older students know the routine for the first day, our new students and kindergarteners begin a new adventure. It is a day of excitement and anticipation. We believe that Sequim is a special place to live and to learn. The natural beauty of Sequim is inspiring, affording each of us a quality of life that is unmatched in most places. As educators, it is our passion to compound the advantages of living in a beautiful place by providing each of our students a caring and personalized school experience. We believe that all students can achieve. Our most important strategic priority is to maximize the potential and talents of each of our students. To ensure that all our students

realize their full potential, it is our intent to sponsor an “Opportunity to Excel’ program this school year. We will offer every student additional individualized attention in an extended school setting. This opportunity is our commitment to our students and our community to meet the individual needs of all our students. In this edition of Kids Today, you will find parent guidelines, important dates, contact information, school supply lists, and a calendar of school days for 2010-11. We trust you will find this information helpful as you prepare for the coming school year. All staff members within the school district have spent the summer preparing for the return of our students. We look forward to seeing you on the 8th. Until that time, enjoy the remainder of your summer break.

Food Service The Sequim School District recognizes the School Food Service Program as an integral part of the school day. Sequim Schools offer an approved lunch and breakfast program. This program provides for nutritious, balanced hot meals daily at all levels. The meals are nutritionally balanced with lunch meeting one-third the recommended daily nutritional requirement.

Nutrition & Physical Fitness In July of 2005, the Sequim Board of Directors updated and adopted the Nutrition and Physical Fitness policy. The policy describes that the District and schools will regulate the sale or serving of foods/snacks high in fat, sodium, or added sugar. The District is working with our food services contractor, Sodexo, to ensure the guidelines are being met. As parents, we ask that when you bring snacks to school to share with your student’s classmates that you keep this policy in mind and share healthy snacks. Free and reduced-price meals are available to students whose families meet certain federal income requirements. Check with your local

school for income guidelines and application forms. Information on the application form is confidential and will only be used to determine eligibility for school district food service programs. Breakfast and lunch prices are as follows: Student Meal Breakfast Lunch Grades K-5 $1.05 $1.80 Grades 6-8 $1.15 $1.95 Grades 9-12 $1.20 $2.00 Adult Meal $1.80 $2.90

2010-2011 SEQUIM SCHOOL DISTRICT BUS ROUTES NOTE: BUS ROUTE AND TIME CHANGES! Students K-12 will ride same bus; there is only one (1) bus in AM and PM. AM Greywolf Elementary Notice! Greywolf students will need to transfer to a shuttle bus in the stadium parking lot. Please remember, if a bus passes waiting students, it may not be their bus. Morning Kindergarten students will ride regular route bus to school; Mid-day Kindergarten bus home. Afternoon Kindergarten students will ride a mid-day Kindergarten bus to school and a regular route bus home. The Transportation Department recommends all students who will be riding school buses be picked up at their stops the first day of school. This will enable the bus driver and student to know which bus stop they will get off at in the afternoon. Exact times and pickup points cannot be determined until exact enrollment and passenger loads are fixed. It is recommended that students, who plan to ride buses, be at their stops well ahead of the time shown (5 min.). For the first day, new students will be picked up at all stops along routes, except for Hwy. 101 East and West routes. The following are routes, not necessarily bus stops. Times should be estimated for stops between the points for which time is shown. Students will be advised after two or three days where the permanent bus stop will be. Every effort will be made to space stops approximately one-half mile apart, thus requiring a quarter-mile walk along routes. Exceptions will be made only on a case-by case basis because of student safety, handicapping conditions, etc. Students will ride the same route bus A.M and P.M. unless otherwise noted. ALL STUDENTS living on 101 West or East must catch the bus at their designated stop. DO NOT CROSS THE HIGHWAY and catch the bus at a later time. There will be mid-day Kindergarten bus runs. Parents of Kindergarten students may view these bus routes at the elementary school. Bus drivers will not drop Kindergarten students at stops unless a parent or other designated adult is there to meet the child. The child will be brought back to the school. PARENTS: For younger elementary students on regular bus runs, please have someone at stop to meet the students, particularly on Hwy. 101 East and West. Questions: Transportation Department, Jeff Gossage, Supervisor, 582-3274 or 582-3273.

Technology Matters Student Internet Use All students and parents, K-12, must annually complete a District Internet Use Permission/ Agreement form, acknowledging their understanding and agreement to abide by District Technology and Internet Use Guidelines. Students over the age of 18 do not require a parent signature.

Skyward Family Access Family Access is a web-based application that provides parents with access to student attendance, grades, assignments, lunch account information, and more. School office staff will distribute new family access logins and passwords for the 2010-11 school year. All passwords were reset for security purposes. If passwords become lost or forgotten, parents must request login and password information in person (showing some form of ID) at their child’s school office. Staff will not release this information over the phone or by Email for security reasons. Secondary students will also receive student access logins and passwords.

New Wireless Access At Secondary Schools Students at Sequim High and Middle Schools can now utilize their laptop computers through a District wireless connection. This will be possible when the District receives a signed Internet Use Agreement from students and parents for the 2010-11 school year. This is a secure connection that provides the same internet filtering processes that are employed throughout the school district network.

Register On The “Schoolwires” District Website Schoolwires.com provides the District’s web page with a feature-rich content management system designed especially for schools. We ask that parents and interested citizens “Register” online at www.sequim.k12.wa.us to be eligible for available interactive services such as E-alerts and other specific “role” features. The District web site also features direct links to Family Access.

Student Technology Supplies

November 1 & 2 Parent Conferences/No School
