    Posted on 08/31/2020

    Beloved Nathan Hale Community

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year. This is a reminder for our families and students that we will have laptop distribution days on Wednesday and Thursday this week. This is for ALL students who do not have a high school laptop issued from Seattle Public Schools. Incoming 9th graders who received a laptop in middle school, please return your laptop when receiving your high school laptop. For students in grades 10 through 12, if you do not have a laptop issued to you from Seattle Public Schools, please come in during one of these dates as well. Distribution will take place at the main entry of the school—the west entry, and masks are required. Please observe physical distancing upon arrival while waiting to have your laptop issued to you. 

    Laptop pick-up dates and times are:
    • Wednesday, September 2nd, 9:00am-12:00pm, and 1:00pm-4:00pm
    • Thursday, September 3rd, 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:00pm

    There will be one extra day for families who aren’t able to pick up their laptops this week:  Wednesday, September 9th, 9:00am-12:00pm.

    Class Schedules
    Class schedules will be ready to view in The Source later today, Monday, August 31st. We will not be mailing schedules home this year. Currently, we are working on balancing classes, ensuring students have all their core subjects, and updating schedules that have missing classes. The criteria for schedule changes and the online fill-in schedule request form will be available on our website when schedules are made available for view. Once schedules are published, we will continue to balance classes, fill holes in schedules and correct schedule errors.  Final schedules will be the schedule students see on The Source right before school starts. Our priority is starting school with complete and accurate schedules. Thank you for your understanding and patience with the process.

    Communication
    Please be aware that this week, you will be receiving several communications from us pertaining to our school schedule, individual classroom schedules and how to access classes. I appreciate your patience and understanding. Our goal is to keep you updated.

    Regarding start of classes, we will begin our Strong Start this Friday, September 4th and will continue through next Friday, September 11th. The focus is on connections, community engagement, understanding our digital tools, and ensuring that we all have remote and digital access. We will also use this time to correct class schedules, balance overloads and be sure students are in the correct classes. Academic curriculum will begin on Monday, September 14th. 

    Go Raiders!

    With Love,
    William
