★ 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.

★ 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

Use or possession of alcohol, marijuana, illicit drugs or vaping paraphernalia:

1st Violation – Any student in violation of these rules for the first time shall be short-term suspended for ten (10) school days except as noted under “Special Sanction.”  This suspension may be reduced to a minimum five (5) school days contingent upon student’s participation in the suspension reduction process outline in the Rights and Responsibilities Handbook Concerning Student Conduct.

2nd Violation – Any student in violation of this rule for the second time will be suspended for ninety (90) school days. This suspension may be reduced to a minimum 10 (ten) twenty (20) school days.

Transfer (whether completed or not) - Any student who transfers alcohol, marijuana or illicit drugs to another, even if it is a first violation, will be long-term suspended for ninety (90) school days consistent with day and credit loss limitations. The student should also obtain an assessment and comply with recommended treatment.

Attendance

Attendance Office - (425) 408-7210

Call Attendance Office

1.  Absence or late arrival: To AVOID discipline, remember to have a parent call Attendance or bring a note signed by a parent (or guardian) WITHIN 48 HOURS of the absence/late arrival. Emails are not accepted.  Absence = Missing 15 minutes or more of class time.

2.  Early dismissal: 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.

6. If a student’s absence remains unexcused after 48 hours, the student will be assigned a Saturday School for the first unexcused absence.  A second unexcused absence will result in an Attendance Contract and a third unexcused absence will result in automatic loss of credit.

   Please note: If a student accumulates TEN (10) or more absences in a semester, he/she will be required to appeal for ELIGIBILITY TO RECEIVE THE grade and credit EARNED in that period AT the end of the semester.   

Attendance Policy

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 four (4) hours of Saturday School.

       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.

Cheating / Academic Honesty Code

Inglemoor High School adheres to a philosophy of promoting honest and ethical behavior among its students. Cheating is unacceptable. The following policy becomes effective upon enrollment at Inglemoor and is cumulative until graduation.
 
Cheating is defined as any attempt to present work as the student’s own when it is not. This includes the use of unauthorized materials. Students who allow their work to be copied will also be disciplined.
 
1st violation will result in an assistant principal referral. A parent/student conference will be scheduled with all of the student’s teachers where the student will explain the circumstances contributing to the cheating offense; loss of credit on the assignment/exam; and Saturday School.
 
2nd violation will result in an assistant principal referral, parent contact, loss of credit on the assignment/exam, and students will be required to complete an independent study course during Saturday School.
                                               
3rd violation will result in an assistant principal referral, and may include suspension with option to retrieve credit via alternative methods.  
                  
Further offenses will result in progressive discipline.

Campus Cleanup Guidelines

Students are responsible for clearing their garbage after eating/drinking in the cafeteria, and on other parts of the campus. Failure to do so will result in assigned campus cleanup. Continued failure to clear garbage may result in the loss of break/club meeting time. Areas of the campus that have been left with garbage may be restricted from student eating.

Campus Security / Cameras

Security cameras are in place to monitor common areas and parking lots for building security. Inglemoor administration will involve the local law enforcement in investigations of all illegal activities.

Cell Phones / Communication Devices

Electronic devices (ie. cell phones, smart phones, iPads, laptops, and tablets) may not be used in the classroom unless permitted by the teacher. When teacher guidelines are not followed, students may be referred for disciplinary action. The use of electronic devices may not disrupt the learning environment or affect other students. Also, be aware that these items are among the most frequently stolen articles on campus.
 
Students are permitted to use communication devices during break, lunch, and passing periods.
 
Discipline Steps for violations to Personal Technology (Cell phone, iPad, camera, other electronic device) used during class time:
 
1st violation - Upon teacher notification, the student will be assigned a one hour of after-school detention by administration.
2nd violation - Upon teacher notification, parents will be notified by administration and the student will be assigned a two-hour Saturday School.
3rd violation -  Upon teacher notification, the student will be assigned a four-hour Saturday School.  
Further violations will result in progressive discipline.

Closed Campus and School Boundaries

Inglemoor High School is a closed campus during the scheduled school day. Students with late arrivals or early dismissals are to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before their first scheduled class and leave campus within 10 minutes of the end of their last scheduled class.
        
Students are not to be in any of the parking lots during the school day except when arriving or departing. (Violators will be disciplined and may lose their parking permit.) If a situation arises where a student wants to retrieve an item from their vehicle, they need to let the Main Office staff know or get a pass from a staff member.
        
All school rules apply while students are on any Northshore School District property, adjacent properties* to Inglemoor High School, or at a Northshore School District activity.  *Adjacent properties are defined as areas that can be seen from the IHS campus. Students must remain within the perimeter of the School Boundaries.
            
School Boundaries: The following areas adjacent to Inglemoor High School are off limits during the school day: 88th NE from NE 150th to NE 163rd, the service road and housing area south of the campus known as “Amber Ridge,” the housing area directly north of our baseball and softball fields known as “The Park at Inglemoor.” Please be respectful of our neighbors. Inglemoor students are also not permitted to visit our neighboring schools without first gaining permission from the particular school. And finally, students must not “visit” their vehicle during breaks or lunch in the parking lots without receiving permission from a school official.
Loitering: For safety reasons, the following areas are to be free from students loitering so that others may pass freely. During passing periods and lunch, students are prohibited from standing in congested areas such as the walkways between 900, 800, 700 wings, and in front of the cafeteria restrooms.

Clubs

Inglemoor provides a variety of clubs and activities for students. For an updated list of all clubs at Inglemoor and/or information on how to start a club please visit the IHS Clubs page.

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).
  • Pajamas.
  • 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.
