Important Upcoming Assessment Dates

 Please note these dates to ensure that your child is present, had breakfast and is on time for the appropriate testing. Any student arriving after testing has begun will not be admitted to class until testing has completed for that day. Students may not be dismissed from class during testing for any reason other than illness. In addition, vacation requests may not be approved during the testing window.

We would appreciate your consideration of these testing dates as you make medical appointments and/or vacation plans. Thank you for your partnership.

Dear Cascade Ridge Families -

We thought it would be helpful to share answers to common questions and concerns that we received regarding school delays and closures. Deciding to delay or cancel school is a tough decision that must be made hours before buses and cars enter the roadways. Given the changeability of our weather and the size of our district, a decision may make sense in one part of the district and seem absolutely irrational in another part of the district.

Please make sure you check the sources below for delays or closures.  The Flash Alert messenger app for cell phones is handy to download.


When school is cancelled:

  • It means there is no staff on site. 
  • Coyote Club is closed
  • All activities are cancelled.

When school is on a two hour delay:

  • It means there is no staff at school to answer calls, or emails. Staff arrive at school when it is safe to travel the roads. 
  • Students are only to be dropped off 10 minutes prior to the start of school. 
  • Coyote Club is closed in the morning. 
  • All before school activities are cancelled.
  • A two hour delay means school starts two hours later at 10:30am.
  • Please avoid calling the school for closure information-check the Issaquah School District website.
  • Lunch will be served on the regular daily schedule.
  • School will be dismissed at the regular time: 2:55 pm – M, T, Th, F and 12:45 pm - W.
  • Please remember the same rules apply for two hour delays - drop-off times, parking lot rules and NO turning left out of the parking lot!  

Let's keep our Coyotes safe!

 Have a family plan! 

  • Critical for all emergencies!
  • Get to know your neighbors – exchange phone numbers.
  • Make sure you have a designated back up to meet your student in case you are unable to pick up from school.

Thank you for being proactive and keeping your family safe!   

Ways to find out about school delays or closures:

Parking Lot Rules:

  • Adults stay in car at all times. If you need to assist your child getting in or out of the car, you will need to park rather than use the drop off/pick up lane.
  • Students are ready to exit on the RIGHT only. Have coats on and backpacks/lunches nearby when you leave your house rather than waiting until it is time to exit. Students MUST exit to the right safely onto the sidewalk, not to the left into passing traffic.
  • Drop off/Pick up in the white lines only! Once you are in the diagonal white lines, you are ready to stop. But first, pull all the way forward, do not leave large gaps before stopping to drop off or pick up children. Do not stop in the cross walk.
  • Do not drop off on the “wrong” side of the parking lot! Wait until you have circled all the way around to the diagonal white lines. Do not drop off on the other side and allow your children to walk across the parking lot or cross walk.
  • Say your "Good byes", "I love yous" and reminders of the pick up plans as soon as you enter the parking lot. 
  • Drive slowly. Plan your drop off time so that it allows for traffic. If you are on a tight schedule, walking or riding with a friend is a better option.
  • Pay attention to adult crossing guards and student safety patrollers. They know the rules and are trying to enforce them for everyone’s benefit. Eyes up and not on cell phones or watching students walk to class.
  • Engage civilly. Moments of frustration are bound to occur. Remembering our Culture of Kindness and our District's Civility Regulation are important.
