Letters were recently sent home to the families of all kindergarten students who are enrolled in the Issaquah School District. These letters detail the process that will be used to identify Issaquah’s “most highly capable” kindergarteners. Student screening will be November 5 through 7. Students who are identified as “most highly capable” will be invited to enter the Primary Enrichment Program (PEP) later in the school year. Students living within the Issaquah School District’s boundaries, but attending private or home-based schools may participate in screening. Contact your neighborhood school for more information. To learn more about the Highly Capable Program click on the following link: Highly Capable Issaquah School District webpage
On Thursday, October 24 we will be conducting a TEST of our text notification system. We are doing this to make sure the information we have on file for you in Family Access is correct. Please note that if we only have a landline telephone number for you, we cannot send a text. Here’s how it will work: At approximately 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, the District will send a test text message to all families that says “TEST text message from ISD.” At approximately 6:30 p.m. the District will send a follow E-News by email to all families with information about how to let us know if you did not receive the text.
- If you do receive the text, you’re all set! You do not need to respond to the follow up E-News.
Are you new to the ISD? Would you like to learn more about the school system and programs in the Issaquah School District?
All families are invited to attend the ISD event “What Every Parent Wants to Know about the ISD” on Oct. 23, 2019 at 6:30 pm at Clark Elementary School.
This event will have separate sessions for elementary, middle and high school information on topics such as school and classroom expectations, behavior expectations, grading, homework, communication with school and teachers, how to get involved, and course selection at the secondary level. District staff and parent volunteers will be available to answer questions.
Spanish, Korean and Mandarin speaking interpreters will be available at the event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 17th if you need an interpreter in another language.
Snacks and Childcare are available.
Are you registered to vote? A quick way to check and register online for 11/5 Election Ballots for the November 5 election are being mailed out to registered voters on October 18, 2019! Do you know if you are registered to vote? If you’ve recently moved or changed your name (or just haven’t voted in a while), you probably need to re-register to vote. And, because general elections usually happen only once a year, it’s understandable if you’re not totally clear on your voter status or if you remembered to update your registration after your last big life event. Even if you’re pretty sure you have, there’s no harm in taking a minute to double-check and there is an easy way to find out! Simply follow this link to the VoteWA website and enter your name and birthday. It will verify your status, and offer you the opportunity to update your information if need be. October 28 is the deadline to use the online registration, but you can still register in person up to November 5. All of the details are on the VoteWA.gov website! You can also find important details about the November 5, 2019 General Election at King County’s Election Website.
