    Issaquah High School

    IHS Traffic Safety Education

    The Fall session of the Issaquah High School Traffic Safety Education program will open for enrollment on Monday, August 19. The application is attached, but please keep in mind that the bookkeeper WILL NOT accept forms or payment until Monday, August 19.

    Please download the attached registration form, fill it out, and bring it with payment to the bookkeeper. Enrollment is limited to the first 20 students that apply so sign up today. As soon as the bookkeeper has accepted your paperwork and money, you are enrolled in the program. You will then be able to go to the DOL 10 days prior to the first day of class to pick up your permit without taking the test.

    There are NO scholarships for this class as it is an extra-curricular activity not required for graduation. However, we do offer a payment plan. Please email Mrs. Fortier if you are interested in breaking up the cost into smaller increments.

    If you have any questions regarding the traffic safety program, please contact Brenda Fortier at

    An Important Change in Washington State Law Regarding Vaccinations

    Effective July 28, 2019 no personal or philosophical exemptions from the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccination will be available to families. The law applies to all public and private schools and licensed child care facilities in Washington State.

    If a student has had a personal or philosophical exemption in the past, we must now have documentation of MMR immunization from a health care provider or on or before the first day of school on September 4, 2019 as a condition of enrollment. The new law does not affect religious or medical exemptions.

    Two doses of MMR are required for all students in grades K-12. The two doses must be given at least 28 days apart. When your child has a first MMR vaccination, please let your school nurse know the date it occurred as well as the date the second dose is administered. We are notifying families now to allow sufficient time to meet the new immunization requirement before the first day of school.

    More information can be found at the WA Department of Health exemption law change web page, including FAQs: You are also welcome and encouraged to contact your school nurse if you have questions.
