Issaquah High School Information

Automated Lunch Balance Notifications Starting March 12
The ISD Food Service Department has developed an automated lunch balance notification system that sends an e-mail to parents and guardians when a student’s lunch balance is low or account is in arrears. No action is required to begin receiving these notifications. Those who may wish to opt out may do so at any time via the instructions at the bottom of the automated emails. The low lunch balance e-mail notification system will go live on March 12, 2018. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Food Service Director, Brian Olson by email or 425.837.5061 by phone.

All-School Booster Club News

Does Your Child Participate in an IHS Club, Activity, or Sport?

If so, chances are they have already received a donation from Boosters, or may at some point in the future.  In the month of February alone, the Booster Club awarded over $4,300 in grants to support IHS Radio Club, Aerospace Club, Robotics Club, and Boy’s Lacrosse!  This money is vital to these activities and the many others Boosters has supported.  Without it, some clubs at IHS would not exist, some kids could not participate in a sport, or compete at a championship.  Boosters is a proud supporter of all clubs, sports, and activities at Issaquah, but we cannot do it without the generous donations of our members.  Please consider joining Boosters or making a donation today – our kids depend on it!  Click here Join Boosters to support our kids.
