Principal's Message 11/20/20

  • Dear Shorecrest Students and Families,

    As we approach Thanksgiving, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our families, for your on-going support and for all you are doing at home to encourage your students during this difficult time. Please know it is not lost on us that keeping a teenager engaged with remote learning, day in and day out, is a challenge! We see them on one side of the screen and you see them on the other. :) We appreciate you so very very much. Thank you, SC families! A few school updates to share...

    • If you took school pictures on site earlier this fall, and your family ordered pictures, please know we will be mailing them to your home. They should arrive in the next two weeks.
    • In addition, we are curtailing the weekly distribution of materials and supplies for the month of December. Only our lab classes will be distributing materials and only if absolutely essential. Due to the increase in COVID cases in our county, we are hitting pause on larger materials distribution until the new year to reduce exposure for our staff and our families. If your student has a class that requires materials to be distributed (Foods classes, Engineering, Physics), they will be notified by your teacher. 
    • Report cards should be landing in your mailboxes this week as well! These are final Semester 1 grades. 

    We hope you enjoy a few days of rest this next week. Take good care.

    Go Scots!

    Ms. Gonzalez

    Find a Flu Shot Clinic Near You

    Shoreline School District was not able to schedule flu clinics at our sites this fall, however, free or low-cost flu vaccinations for adults and children will be available at many locations in King County this flu season. Learn more and find a flu shot clinic near you HERE.

     


    Holiday Gift Baskets
    • Our PTSA is still preparing to support our families during our upcoming winter break. Rather than food baskets (to reduce risk to volunteers as well as recipients) they have coordinated a gift card drive. 
    • They are looking for $25 gift cards they can give to teens, children, families, etc.  The City of Shoreline has already provided $50,000 in grocery cards!
    • If you would like to make a contribution, please consider purchasing a gift card (write the dollar amount in a sharpie on the gift card itself as they do not wish to have excess packaging to manage). 
    • You can drop off gift cards at any Shoreline fire station or mail to: Holiday Gift Basket Drive/PTSA PO Box 55832, Shoreline, WA 98155-5784
