Dear Northeast Seattle Public Schools community,
At the Nov. 20 board meeting, the Seattle School Board approved boundary changes for the 2014-15 school year to help address the district’s growing enrollment.
There were several amendments from Board members that changed the proposed boundaries before the final vote. District staff has been working to get information and maps posted that reflect the Board decisions, and we also want to share the information with you directly. Additional information, maps and FAQs are posted at http://bit.ly/GrowthBoundaries. Please see the Growth Boundary implementation for Middle Schools for more information on Hamilton International, Eckstein and Jane Addams middle schools.
In the Northeast region, there are no changes to elementary attendance areas for the 2014-15 school year except for Green Lake and Laurelhurst (in conjunction with McDonald and John Stanford International Schools becoming option schools). There are changes to middle school attendance areas for 2014-15. Grandfathering – guaranteeing a seat at a student’s current school - does not apply for attendance area middle school students. So current 6th and 7th graders will be assigned to attend their attendance area school next Fall. See Growth Boundary implementation for Elementary Schools for more information.

The Seattle Department of Transportation awarded Bryant a mini-grant of $1000 to promote walking and biking to school. The grant is part of the Safe Routes to School program, which promotes the creation of safe school environments conducive to walking or biking. This means more fun walking and biking events are in store for Bryant in 2014 -- so get excited!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to go through the Lost and Found racks and boxes located in the school lobby. There are many warm coats and sweatshirts, water bottles, lunch boxes, and misc items that are waiting for their families to reclaim them. And you may be surprised at what you find, but never knew was missing! Please note that all items remaining will be donated to charity during the end-of-year break. Thank you!

As we head into colder months, we want to remind you again about planning for winter weather, and how we communicate school delays and closures to both staff and families.
When we are expecting snow or inclement weather, a Central Office team continually monitors conditions across the District. That includes having staff drive some of the streets that are typically more treacherous in snow and ice. After consulting with other agencies, we decide whether to delay school by two hours or if a closure is necessary. That decision is typically made by 5:30 a.m.
You can learn if there is a school delay or closure through:
- local TV and radio stations
- the District website
- an automated phone call you will receive
- Twitter @seapubschools
- the Public Schools Emergency Communications System

Did you know that currently the library gets just $500/year? This amount covers the magazine subscriptions and materials to bind books, but not to buy any new books! However, because the Bryant Community donated so generously during the Annual Campaign, the PTSA voted at the November 12th meeting to give the library $12,000 to buy new books. With these funds, on top of the $12,000 the PTSA gave to the library last year, Ms. Aliverti will continue to update the library collection with a focus on informational texts. Over the last year Ms. Aliverti has removed many of the outdated library books and purchased new ones. Now the average age of the collection is 1999, improved from 1995 when she started.
As we all know, pleasure reading is a source of much of our literacy development. Those who read more, read better, write better, spell better, have larger vocabularies and better grammar. A strong library is a cornerstone of good reading habits. Thanks to the amazing Bryant Community, we are able to provide Ms. Aliverti with the funds she needs to create a strong, up to date and engaging library curriculum.

The Bryant Administration would like to create a visitor sign-in station at the middle playground doors on rainy day mornings as a perk to those who would like to drop their student off in the building. Without this visitor sign-in station, parents will need to use the front entrance and sign-in at the Bryant office. Please read the information below to see if you would like to assist in creating something that would greatly benefit your fellow Bryant parents.
We need three more Rainy Day Sign-In volunteers who will assist parents with signing in at the middle playground doors on rainy mornings. Each volunteer will be designated a specific day of the week to work. One volunteer per morning shift, 9:05-9:20 a.m.
Commitment is needed from mid-November to mid-June.
