Principal's Message 5/20/22

  • Dear Shorecrest Students and Families,

    This weekend is closing weekend for SpongeBob SquarePants, The Musical. Our students have been performing to sold-out audiences and this past week, performed four special matinees for our elementary students. Our elementary students lost their minds with the sounds, the lights, the set decoration, and they LOVED every single moment of the show. The sheer JOY that was felt and shared in the theater was palpable. It feels like a big piece of our Shorecrest soul has been restored with the return of our theater program and it feels really, really good.  Thank you to all of you who support our student performers!

    Next week is the last full week of school for our Seniors. We have our Academic Awards celebration on Wednesday, May 25 and our final Music Concerts. Then, we move into Annual Day, Prom, Caen Laida, Graduation Rehearsals, Graduation… It goes by super fast! We are so excited to be able to return to having all of these rituals and celebrations this year. It has been such a loss to our community over these last two years to miss these events. Please, soak it all in and encourage your senior to participate to the fullest. I encourage all parents of Seniors to do all you can to “slow down” and mark every moment you can. 

    All AP and state testing is now completed and behind us. Classes are wrapping up final units of study. Please check Canvas to check on grades as we are coming down to some final, and hard, deadlines on when work must be completed and submitted. 

    3 more weeks till graduation!

    4 more weeks to the end of the school year for all other grades.

    We got this! Go Scots!

    NEW ELECTRONIC VOLUNTEER APPLICATION PROCESS

    The District currently defines a Volunteer as a person who is authorized to enter the school building or be on campus to perform a service for staff and/or students. Volunteers may be on campus on a recurring basis. We are pleased to announce that, effective as of March 11, 2022, the Shoreline School District will be moving to an electronic submission process for individuals interested in making application as a school Volunteer.

    As in the past, volunteer applicants will be required to provide the information and identification necessary to undergo a Washington State Patrol (WSP) background check. In addition, Volunteer applicants will also be required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination.  The process has been set up in ParentSquare to support easy access for parents/staff. While the primary submission process will be electronic, we anticipate that there may still be some exceptional instances where Volunteer Applicants need to submit via paper.  In that event, Volunteer applicants may access and complete a hard copy of the updated WSP Volunteer Background Check Form at https://www.shorelineschools.org/Page/8424. Completed paper forms must be submitted along with the required ID and proof of vaccination to the school in which you are seeking Volunteer status.

    Please feel free to contact your resident school or Shoreline School District Human Resources (206-393-4224) if you have questions or need assistance.

     

    SHORECREST REMINDERS

    How to Arrange Early Dismissals
    If your student needs an early dismissal for an appointment or other such reason, please notify our attendance office in advance by emailing sc.attendance@shorelineschools.org. We would like to know of the early dismissal at least one day in advance so we can prepare a pass to give to the student. When you arrive to pick up your child without prior notice, please know it will take more time for us to locate your student (oftentimes PE classes are on the field or on a walk) and have them meet you.

    Visitors/Families on Campus
    Unfortunately we are still not permitted to have guests, volunteers, or visitors on campus. This includes our families. We hope this will change in the near future but for now, please help us by remaining in your car in the parking lot when you come to Shorecrest to pick up or drop off your student.

    Student Drop Off and Pick Up
    We need your help. With the increased number of students being dropped off or picked up at Shorecrest, we need families to use the North Parking Loop (behind the theater building) and to follow the directions on our signage. Please DO NOT turn left out of our parking lot as it will back up traffic for days. Please turn RIGHT only. Please watch for student pedestrians. Please go slow and drive safely. Please be patient.
