    Seattle Public Schools Email Accounts for Students
    On May 26, 2020, Seattle Public Schools launched email accounts for all students. To better support remote continuous learning, the district is enabling student email accounts and expanding the online meeting tools: Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

    These changes will help improve communications, user experience, and security for students and teachers. Please share this link with your student, which has instructions and more information about the student email accounts: https://www.seattleschools.org/student_portal/student_email

    SENIORS: Cap and Gown Donations Accepted at Ingraham
    Seniors, if you would like to donate your graduation cap and/or gown back to Ingraham for a future graduate to use, please bring your donation to senior checkout on Wednesday or Thursday.

    SENIORS!! Graduation is two weeks away! Please make sure you clear all your fines BEFORE senior check out days on June 10-11. Payment can be made on SchoolPay. If you have fines from a previous school, please see the options below on what to do. If you still have the book, please bring it to school when directed.

    SENIORS with FINES from previous schools. Please contact the elementary, middle school or high school librarian of the school where the fee comes from to see what to do to about it. If you opt for #3 option below, please let the librarian know that this is how you will “pay” the fine. Please note that only the school librarian where the fine had incurred can remove this fine.

    Current options for paying fine(s) are:

    • Pay for the book--parent can pay online in SchoolPay .
    • Replace the lost book with the same book.
    • “Read” the book off – If you are unable to replace a lost book or pay for it, then this is the preferred way to deal with the fine. To determine how much you would need to read, use the following calculation. Rate of pay is equal to minimum wage so you would take the value of the book and divide by 12 (since $12.00 dollars is the current minimum wage) and that would give you the number of hours of reading that you need to do to replace the book.
    With option #3, students need to bring a note from an adult (or the adult sends an email to the librarian) saying what they read, how long they read, and how many pages they read if they were reading a physical book. The reading must take place outside of school hours. When the note is received, the fine is forgiven.

    From Nurse Janet Regarding Medications at School
    On June 10th and 11th from 10am-2pm, Seniors may pick up medications in the health office by appointment. Please email me at jpboyett@seattleschools.org.

    If you are in 9th-11th grade, meds can be left until next fall. If you have essential medications that you must retrieve this summer, I welcome an email and we will follow the schedule for senior pickup.

    Here is the plan for medication pick up:
    1. Email ahead to secure an appointment time for June 10 and 11.
    2. Students or parents must wear a mask or face covering to enter the school.
    3. Call the Health Office upon arrival 206 252-3887
    4. One person at a time may enter to get the medication.
    5. Maintain 6 feet guide social distancing and privacy.
    6. Please observe the blue tape marked to indicate distances.
    7. The nurse will be wearing PPE and leave the medications on a table in a bag clearly marked with the student’s name.
    8. Please sign accompanying paperwork to show receipt and leave behind for the nurse’s record.
    9. The pens will be sanitized, or you may bring your own pen.
    Yearbooks
    Yearbooks will arrive in early July and will be distributed via drive-through at the East entrance on days/times below. Note that the pick up schedule is alphabetical by last name, and try to come on the correct day.

    You will not be able to buy books at the distribution site. Please buy in advance using SchoolPay. This is so we can comply with social distancing and keep everyone healthy.

    Kudos and Thanks to Lizzie and Ronan!
    The IHS Bright Futures Committee would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Lizzie Friedrich and Ronan Axtell. Together they reached out to students they know at other high schools and organized a very successful toiletries drive for our Ingraham students who are facing housing insecurity. Thanks to Lizzie and Ronan, the donations they solicited are already reaching Ingraham students who need them.

    From the Ingraham Counseling Office:
    As you may know, King County Wastewater and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust typically offer the Clean Water Ambassadors Internship Program each summer - a paid internship program for high school youth.

However, they are excited to announce that they’re offering a free online program in July that doesn’t require a hiring process. This Clean Water Ambassador Certificate Program is open to all high school age youth in the King County region!

    WHAT: Online program for high school-aged youth to learn how to help protect clean water in our region.
    WHEN: July 7-31, Tues-Fri, 1-3pm. Orientation on July 6, 1-3pm.
    HIGHLIGHTS:

    This summer, OneWorld Now will be offering two 3-week online sessions of their Summer World Language Program in Arabic, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese. Level 1A in each language will be offered from June 29th-July 17th and Level 1B will be offered from July 27th-August 14th.

    Students can earn 0.5 World Language credits for each session; therefore, if they completed 6 weeks (Level 1A and Level 1B), they get 1.0 credits, which is a year's worth of language study.

    The deadline to register is June 12th.

    A note on cost:
    You may remember that our summer camp used to be completely free except for a $25 registration fee. We were able to do that thanks to a generous annual grant from STARTALK (a US Dept of Defense program). Unfortunately, due to the COVID crisis, STARTALK is deferring all grants to 2021. However, we are still able to offer our summer program on a sliding scale based on family size and income, similar to what we do for our yearlong programming.

    An update from the Ingraham Athletic Booster Club (IABC)…
    It’s June. Wow. Not what we expected. At this time, we are usually celebrating all of our athletes at our Ingy Awards and sending our graduates on with our appreciation and accolades.

    Another of our major spring activities postponed is awarding grant monies to teams. We are moving this grant process to be in late summer, when the next school year’s plans are more in view.
    Radar alert! IABC is having our Annual Meeting online, on Tuesday June 16th at 7 PM! Details to follow. All are welcome!
    Details on how to join the meeting are coming soon. Please hold an appointment on your calendar with a reminder to join the meeting online at 7pm. Details to join will be on https://www.ingrahamathletics.org/
