Students’ current ORCA cards will become their free youth transit pass on September 1.

Students should keep their current ORCA card and use it for the 2022-23 school year, even if there is an expiration date printed on the back.

Be sure to register your ORCA card by June 30th, 2023.  Students who do not have an ORCA card will need to request one.

You can request and register ORCA cards on the My ORCA website.

Learn more about how youth ride free

Parking on Campus

Students should fill out a vehicle registration form if they plan on parking on campus.  Please complete the form at the following link and then stop by the Main Office to pick up your 2022-23 parking pass (free) starting next Wednesday. 

Important:  Due to field construction still happening, there is no student parking in the south parking lot off Ashworth until construction is complete.  This will significantly reduce the amount of parking spaces for the start of school, so we encourage students to carpool if possible, or use public transportation to get to school.  No student parking in the Staff/Visitor parking lot near the upper gym.  Student parking is in the larger lot next to Meridian. Do NOT park in the Helene Madison Pool parking lot.  You may get towed.  Thank you!

We will be offering the SAT and PSAT exams during the school day at Ingraham on Wednesday October 12th.  All Seniors will automatically be enrolled for the SAT and all Juniors will be automatically enrolled for the PSAT.

Volunteering at Ingraham

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!  We have many needs for volunteers coming up very soon. 

All volunteers must be able to demonstrate Covid vaccination.

Volunteer applications and WATCH background checks are valid for 2 years. Volunteers are notified by email when it is time to renew.

The vast majority of volunteers are Category A. This allows volunteers to participate in activities while being supervised by SPS staff.

Category B status is reserved for volunteer activities not supervised by SPS staff. This status is reserved for overnight field trip chaperones, Club Advisors and online tutors (a program that is not currently offered). 

Volunteers are requested to only apply when there is a specific event they want to participate in. WATCH background checks are now run centrally at the district level and applications can take 1-2 weeks to process. So please, get your applications in early this year.  Thank you!

Questions?  Please contact our Ingraham Volunteer Coordinator, Elizabeth Hudd at trhudd@seattleschools.org

School Communication

Ingraham uses various methods to communicate information out to students and families:

  • Students, please start checking your SPS email inbox daily for information from school. 
  • Schoology pages
  • School Bulletins:  We email the school bulletin via a system called School Messenger.  Occasionally, we hear from parents/guardians who say they are not receiving the bulletin or have suddenly stopped receiving them.  It is usually an email filter issue or you have inadvertently unsubscribed.  Please manage your communication preferences.
  • Ingraham Website
