    Pickup Days Scheduled for Yearbooks, ORCA Cards, Class Materials, RAM Mask Orders

    When:  9/23, 9/24, 9/25; 1:50pm – 3:50pm (choose a day that works for you)

    Where:  Ingraham HS, East entrance to the upper gym. Enter the Visitor Parking from N. 135th St. 

    Not all teachers will have class materials for pickup, so you may not have anything to pick up. Your teachers will communicate whether you should pick up anything on the above dates.

    More dates for materials pickup will likely be scheduled in October. 

    Riding Metro is free until the end of September, so if your student needs an ORCA Card, this is the time to pick one up.  We will not be mailing ORCA Cards. All high school students will receive an ORCA card. Students need to be attending school full-time and not just for athletic purposes only.

    If you ordered a 2019-20 yearbook, or an Ingraham mask, this is your opportunity to pick up those items as well.  You can still buy last year’s yearbook until 9/25 on School Pay.

    Please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

     

    Hello Ram Volunteers!

    We are off to a remote start but need to get materials to students and need some help. Please consider joining us next week to greet students in a socially distanced way and help distribute things like ORCA cards, yearbooks and textbooks. Please wear a mask and meet at the gym.

    https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a48aea92ea0f94-materials

    Please contact Elizabeth Hudd at trhudd@seattleschools.org with any volunteering questions.

    Flu Shots Coming Soon! A Note from Nurse Janet Boyett:

    We urge everyone to get a flu shot this fall. Flu and COVID-19 symptoms are similar which could cause confusion. Getting the flu shot is the single most effective way to prevent the flu. Seattle Visiting Nurse Association plans to offer multiple “drive-through” flu clinics at 16 schools starting Sept 21-Oct 2. School staff, students and families can access the flu clinic schedule your flu shot here! Scroll to Ingraham, if you want to get it here.

    SVNA accepts Apple Health, Medicaid, Medicare, most forms of private insurance (including all SPS staff insurance types) and credit cards. SVNA is not able to accept Cigna or Tricare insurance. Students who do not have health insurance can access a flu shot through the School-Based Health Centers.  Ingraham’s Teen Health Center link: https://ingrahamhs.seattleschools.org/services/teen_health_center

    For the form for the drive through clinics, see link below. This needs to be completely filled out. Families who have no insurance can write “No insurance” and the student can still get a flu shot. Students who are enrolled in their school-based health center can also get the flu shot through the SBHC (School-Based Health Center). King County School Health
