What Every Viking Should Know
★ Find a CLUB/ACTIVITY/SPORT you love and put lots of effort into it!
★ DON’T get a locker, you won’t use it.
★ FIND the best BATHROOMS.
★ Use EVERYTHING that is available to you (teachers, apps, etc.). ALWAYS ask questions. The TEACHERS do care, even if they seem scary and mean. TALK to them, they want to help!
★ DON’T be afraid to get a tutor. STUDY with friends. Make STUDY GUIDES as a group.
★ Read NORDIC NEWS.
★ Watch out for the GREEN DOORS; they are dangerous.
★ Don’t feel pressured to take a certain academic route...we are all different and IHS has a LOT of classes to choose from.
★ Check the weather before leaving the house. Be prepared for all kinds of Washington weather.
★ BRING snacks and GUM to class. Be prepared to share.
★ Be SPIRITED!! Wear BLACK & GOLD on Fridays. Participate in spirit days, come to football and basketball games, go to dances. This is stuff you don’t always get to do after high school.
Alcohol, Marijuana and other Drugs
- 1st Violation – Any student in violation of this rule for the first time shall be excluded from classes for the remainder of the school day (if the behavioral violation justifies a classroom exclusion, as explained above) and attend a 4-hour Saturday school.
a. The student shall also register for ATOD class within 72 hours (parent must attend) or be assigned another form of education to inform students of the dangers of associated with alcohol, marijuana, or illicit drug use. (Please see exception below*)
- 2nd Violation – Any student in violation of these rules for the second time shall be short-term suspended for ten (10) school days. This suspension may be reduced to a minimum of five (5) school days contingent upon student’s participation in the suspension reduction process outlined below.
a. If the student and parent agree, and the student undergoes an assessment performed by a state certified chemical dependent treatment agency qualified to perform drug and alcohol assessments, the suspension will be reduced to the minimum five (5) school days, subject to the student’s successful completion of; a drug and alcohol assessment, any follow-up treatment recommendations and student and parent/guardian attendance at the district drug/alcohol information class. The suspension will not be reduced, and the student will not be readmitted to school during the suspension period until the counselor from the approved program provides the principal or his/her designee with a written description of the counseling program developed for the student and a written statement that the student is enrolled in the program. The remaining days of suspension will be held in abeyance and, as determined by the building administrator, may be imposed if the student fails to complete the assessment and/or subsequent program recommendations in a timely manner. During a short-term suspension, a student may not attend school or participate in any school related activities which may include and affect graduation and companion activities.
- 3rd Violation – Any student in violation of this rule for the third time may be suspended for ninety (90) school days. This suspension may be reduced to a minimum twenty (20) school days. Same as 2.a. above, for suspension reduction.

*Any student in violation of this rule for the 1st or 2nd occurrence may be long term suspended for 11 days or more if (1) staff have first “considered” using other forms of discipline to support the student in meeting behavioral expectations, (2) the student commits a behavioral violation listed at:
RCW 28A.600.015(6)(b): An offense listed in RCW 13.04.155, which includes inhaling toxic fumes, a controlled substance, or a liquor violation, RCW 28A.600.015(6)(d): Behavior that adversely impacts the health or safety of other students or educational staff; AND (3) it is determined that returning the student to school before the end of the suspension would pose an “imminent danger to students or school personnel” or an “imminent threat of material and substantial disruption of the educational process”. Long term suspensions can be imposed for a first offense, so long as each of these conditions have been satisfied.
Attendance Office - (425) 408-7210
1. Absence or late arrival: To avoid discipline, please remember to have a parent/guardian call or email attendance WITHIN 72 HOURS of the absence/late arrival. Absence = Missing 15 minutes or more of class time.
2. Early dismissal: Call in the morning or bring a note to the attendance office prior to the dismissal time. In order to prevent disruption of class time, parents should avoid last minute early dismissals.
3. Always sign in and sign out at the attendance office if arriving late or leaving early.
4. Any student wanting to leave school early due to illness must check out through the school nurse, not the Attendance office.
5. Parents are unable to excuse “on campus” absences. Example: You miss class because you are testing with another teacher. This type of absence can only be cleared by that teacher.
Inglemoor High School adheres to the Northshore policy of promoting the importance of regular school attendance as a fundamental means of encouraging achievement. Inglemoor High School has an attendance policy that assists students in meeting their school responsibilities. This policy seeks to accomplish four goals:
1. To encourage regular school attendance by students.
2. To clarify the importance of regular attendance in achieving class objectives.
3. To encourage teachers to develop lessons that make each instructional day important to the student.
4. To provide for continuity of learning, reinforcing needed skills as assessed by state-mandated testing.
Students accumulating unexcused absences will be:
1st Offense................................................... assigned school discipline.
2nd Offense.................................................. placed on an Attendance Contract.
3rd & Subsequent Offenses - A parent/student conference will be scheduled with all of the student’s teachers where the student will sign an individual contract and explain to administrators and teachers the steps being taken to improve attendance.

Dress Code Policy
The primary responsibility for a student’s attire resides with the student and parents or guardians. Northshore School District and Inglemoor High School are responsible for seeing that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, and that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student.
Students Must Wear:
- Top: shirt/blouse/sweater/sweatshirt/dress/etc.
- Bottom: pants/sweatpants/shorts/skirt/dress/leggings/etc. Shoes; activity-specific shoes requirements are permitted (for example for sports).
- Certain body parts must be covered for all students. Clothes must be worn in a way such that chest, genitals and buttocks are covered with opaque (non-see-through) material.
- Tops must have opaque fabric in the front and on the sides (under the arms).
- High-school courses that include attire as part of the curriculum (for example, professionalism, public speaking, and job readiness) may include assignment-specific dress, but should not focus on covering individuals’ bodies or promoting culturally-specific attire.
Students May Wear:
- Hats, including religious headwear.
- Hats and other headwear must allow the face to be visible to staff, and not interfere with the line of sight of any student or staff. Hoodies must allow the face and ears to be visible to school staff.
- Fitted pants, including leggings, jeggings, yoga pants and “skinny jeans.”
- Midriff baring shirts (minimal skin showing).
- Ripped jeans, as long as underwear is not exposed.
- Tank tops, including spaghetti straps and halter tops.
- Sunglasses (but can be worn only outside - except for verified medical reasons).
Students Cannot Wear:
- Violent language or images.
- Images or language depicting tobacco, drugs, alcohol, vaping or weapons (or any illegal item or activity) or the use of same.
- Hate speech, gang or hate group association/affiliation, profanity, pornography.
- Images or language that creates a hostile or intimidating environment.
- Visible underwear (visible waistbands or straps on undergarments worn under other clothing are not a violation).
- Bathing suits, tube tops, or sports bras as the only top.
- Helmets, masks or headgear that obscures the face (except as a religious observance).
- Accessories with sharp objects, spikes, etc.
Consequences for Violating the Dress Code Policy:
- First violation — change clothing.
- Second violation — change clothing and parent notification.
- Third violation — change clothing, parent notification, and referral to a counselor.
- Fourth violation — change clothing, parent notification, and lunch detention.
- Fifth violation — change clothing, parent notification, and two-hour Saturday School.
Continued violations of the dress code will result in progressive disciplinary actions. Adhering to our simple rules for student dress will mean students won't miss important class time when they leave to change. We appreciate parents reinforcing this message with students.
FamilyID Sports Registration
FamilyID is a secure registration platform for our sports programs. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple sports. (www.familyid.com)
A = 4.0 A- = 3.7 B+ = 3.3 B = 3.0 B- = 2.7 C+ = 2.3 C = 2.0 C- = 1.7 D+ = 1.3 D = 1.0 F = 0.0 P= Pass
Percent (%) grading scale:
A = 93 – 100 A- = 90 – 92.9 B+ = 87 – 89.9 B = 83 – 86.9 B- = 80 – 82.9 C+ = 77 – 79.9 C = 73 – 76.9 C- = 70 – 72.9 D+ = 67 – 69.9 D = 60 – 66.9 F = 0 – 59.9
The grade scale is adjusted to round based on rounding rules.
A student’s grade point average is the sum of the point values, as defined above, of all the grades received for all courses attempted, divided by the sum of the credits for all courses attempted. Teacher Assistant and Office Assistant positions will be graded Pass (P) or No Credit (NC) and are elective credits.
