The Bell Times Task Force is reviewing public input on whether to keep the bell time schedule the same, change it to a modified flip of elementary, middle & high school bell times, or extend the high school day by adding an optional seventh hour beginning with the 2016-2017 school year. The Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) program was created to facilitate community engagement and is being led by parents from our schools. 

Please join us on Thursday, April 23rd from 7 pm to 8 pm at Whitman Middle School (9201 15th Ave NW) for a brief presentation on the Bell Time Proposal, Q&A session and to complete the family survey. You can view information about the Task Force and print the family survey by clicking here. Completed surveys will be accepted in the Whitman Middle School office through the month of April. Your input is critical to the school board's decision-making process so please plan to attend.  

Unloading in the Bus Zone
Parents/Guardians, just a reminder that the bus load/unload zone on the west side of the school is for buses only in the morning and afternoon. If you are dropping off your student in the morning or picking up in the afternoon, please use the parking lot drive-through method. 
The last few mornings we have also observed several parents drop off their student in bus zone headed south and then flip a u-turn to go north on 15th. This is illegal and also dangerous (Friday morning there was a near collision). 
We know that in the morning and afternoon that all roads around the school are busy, but please be patient, cautious and observe the rules of the road.

Student Middle School Assignments
Assignment update from the district - Incoming students who will be assigned to the new Wilson Pacific Middle School (or whatever the name may be in the future) and start their middle school experience at Whitman now have the option to follow one of two paths. 1) They can stay at Whitman for the duration of their middle school experience or 2) they can attend Whitman for the year(s) before Wilson Pacific opens and then attend Wilson Pacific when the building is complete.  Students and parents can choose the option they feel will best serve their student's needs.

IMPORTANT: To report your student late or absent

TO PICK UP YOUR STUDENT FOR AN APPOINTMENT: please call ahead 252-1204, email whitmanms.attendance@seattleschools.org, or, send a signed note and have the student deliver it to the Attendance Office (Room 101) before first period. Come to the Attendance Office and SIGN OUT your student. If you have a friend or relative picking up your student, please make sure they are on your emergency contact list or they will not be authorized to take the student out of the building. Call the main office to check (252-1200).  Note: If you do not call ahead or send a note or an email, please be patient while we locate your student, it takes time.
