As the weather has warmed up, jackets, sweaters and sweatshirts are coming off.  We have many articles of clothing that will be donated on April 3rd at the end of the school day.  Remember that if your child's name is on the item, it will be returned to them.


School Nurses are currently seeing students in the health room who are experiencing fever-related illnesses, including influenza, or, the flu. To prevent the spread of the flu, please keep children home from school when they have a fever of 100.0 F or higher. They should remain at home for at least 24 hours after their temperature has returned to normal (98.6F) without the aid of fever-reducing medication, such as Children’s Tylenol or Advil. Please do not send your student to school if fever-reducing medication has been administered at home before leaving for school. Parents/guardians will be contacted to pick up their student if they have returned to school less than 24 hours after experiencing a fever-related illness. For more information, please visit the main ISD website

State Conducting Student Transportation Survey
Occasionally, the Washington State Departments of Health and Transportation conduct a survey of parents across the state to learn about how students travel to and from school. This year, 12 ISD schools are among the roughly 500 who have been selected to participate in the survey. Parents of students at those schools may receive a phone call during April, May or June asking them to take the survey. For a list of the selected schools, and for further information on this process, please visit the ISD website.
