Seattle Public Schools


Seattle Public Schools is recruiting members for the Superintendent’s Reopening Plan Task Force for the 2020-21 school year. The task force will monitor the progress, implementation, and effectiveness of the remote learning model and advise the Board and superintendent on possible revisions and continuous improvement. The deadline for nominations or applications is Oct. 7, 2020.


STATE-WIDE TRAINING DAY, NO SCHOOL FRIDAY.  This is a reminder that there will be no school for students on Friday, October 9. It is the state-wide training day for all public-school educators. Teachers, administrators, and school support staff will spend this time working together to support remote learning and student success.

Visit our online district calendar to view upcoming key dates, board meetings, community events, and more.



The 2020-21 student data verification form will be available through October 8, 6pm.

The student data verification form, sent out at the start of each school year, will be available in September online through the Source.

The student data verification form gives parents and guardians the opportunity to update emergency and medical information for their student.

The online form replaces the paper form sent home at the beginning of each school year and offers a secure and green alternative to the paper-based process.  For more information, go to SPS Student Verification Form

Message from Your PTA

Dear Sand Point Families,

Hope you are doing well and ready for what we know will be a memorable year at Sand Point!

As in years past, your Sand Point Elementary PTA takes the stress and hassle out of school preparations and purchases all the school supplies needed for the start of the year! For remote learning, Sand Point teachers have decided what supplies their students will need to start this year off with success, including headsets with microphones. Throughout remote learning, we may have other supplies which will be coming home to students.

This year we are requesting a $55/per student fee payable to the Sand Point Elementary PTA (SPE PTA) by Friday, September 25th. You may pay online at www.paypal.me/sandpointpta. Please note your child(ren)’s name and teacher(s) in the notes section when you submit payment so we may match your payment to your child(ren)’s classroom. Also, be sure to de-select the box about the payment being for goods or services, so that fees are not charged.

Please consider sponsoring fees for students who may not be able to afford the full amount. And for those families who need a partial scholarship, we appreciate any amount that is consistent with your family’s budget. (Full scholarships are also available. Please complete the Supplies Form which went home in the Welcome Packet to request one.)

We hope you will join us in supporting the PTA as a PTA member. Detailed information regarding what our PTA is all about and what we do is in your Welcome Packet. Your membership helps give a parent voice in everything we do to support Sand Point Elementary. Join online: http://sandpointelementarypta.org/join/ . Scholarships are also available for PTA memberships. Please complete the paper form to request one.

Thank you for your continued support of all our Sand Point Squirrels and the PTA. If you have any questions, please email sandpointelempta@gmail.com.

Stay healthy,

Sand Point Elementary PTA
