Welcome Packets

A wonderful source of forms and information is coming your way – please check your student’s backpack on Monday for the Sand Point Welcome Packet. There are forms to keep and forms to complete and return by 9/20. We have a challenge and a prize for students: who’s class will have 100% return? Competition On!

Included in the stack you will find information on how to join your SPE PTA and information about how the SPE PTA supports all students and staff here at Sand Point Elementary. Please join us in this effort!

School Drop Off Tips

If you are driving and will drop off your student at the door, please enter from Sand Point Way NE, turning onto NE 62nd St, then proceed to the drop-off area. You should be driving down the hill toward NE 63rd St or NE 64th St with this approach.

The bus zone is for buses only. If your vehicle is parked here during posted limited hours, parking enforcement has been known to ticket.

There is very limited street parking on NE 62nd, 60th Ave NE, and NE 63rd. Consider parking up on NE 61st St within the upper neighborhood and walk past our garden to arrive.

Is your child arriving on wheels? Please have your student dismount their bike at the gate and walk their wheels to the bike parking. Bike locks are suggested and don’t’ forget to always ride wearing a helmet!
