WE STILL NEED CHAPERONES TO MAKE THIS RETREAT HAPPEN!

  We need parents to volunteer as chaperones in the cabins at the high school retreat. 

We are very short on men volunteers and desperately need to fill those spots.

Please contact: Tamara Truax at truaxt@bsd405.org or Lee Holt at holti@bsd405.org for more information or to sign up. You will need to complete a Parent Volunteer Application Packet with the district.  Please click HERE to be connected to the district website for the necessary forms.  If you have already completed these forms and have been approved for the International School or for another Bellevue School District school you should be good to go and won’t have to do it again.  Please let us know you have been approved when you sign up to volunteer. 

 


BACK TO BUSINESS DAY 2014

 PLEASE NOTE:  We have been encouraging families to pay fees on line prior to coming on August 20th to cut down on waiting in lines.  We have run into a small problem with this as the District will not be rolling over student records in their system until the weekend of Aug. 16/17.   When you log into the online payment system prior to those dates it will still show your student still in their previous grade.  That is not an issue for those going into 7-12 but our incoming 6th graders will not not be able to purchase on line until Monday, August 18th.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience but have no control over when the roll over takes place.  If you do purchase on line please remember to print out your reciept and bring it with you that day to collect goods you may have purchased.

If you are paying at school on August 20th we take cash, checks and now credit cards.  If you are paying by check please do not write one check for all your students we need one check per student!  We will have two cashiers open, one at the attendance office and one in the main office.  You will need to pay seperately for pictures (Yuen Lui), lunch money (BSD) and PTSA.

 PLEASE CLICK HERE TO BE CONNECTED TO OUR BACK TO BUSINESS DAY PAGE.  THE LINK CAN ALSO BE FOUND AT THE TOP RIGHT OF THIS PAGE.   PLEASE PRINT OUT ALL YOUR FORMS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU TO BACK TO BUSINESS DAY.  NO PACKETS WILL BE MAILED HOME!

Driving and Parking at the International School

Dropping off and picking up your students:  Our number one concern is the safety of your children.  Please click here for more detail on the flow of traffic as drop off and pick up your students.  Please note that you are not allowed to drive in the bus lane.  The district's agreement with Metro is that they have a clear bus lane, they need to get in and out of our parking lot in a timely manner.  Do NOT cut through the parking lot as a means to drop off your students, this is unsafe and blocks the parking lot for those who need to park. 

Parking:  Parking is very limited at the International School.  Please only park in the visitor spots located directly in front of the school.  All other spots are assigned to staff and students.  Please do not park in any assigned spots before and during school hours, even if you plan on just being a minute in the school.  If there are not spots you will need to find a legal spot to park on the street.  The streets closest to the school are permit parking only.  For major events at the school in the evenings we have arranged for shuttle buses to run from one of our district buildings back to the school.  Information will be posted before these events.
