MAY IS NATIONAL NURSES MONTH
I received great news last week! Following the announcement of one of our nurses leaving the district, our incredible School Nurse, Sandy Bacerdo, has agreed to pick up the extra days to serve full time for the remainder of the school year!! Our Health Room is a busy place with students arriving every day with a variety of concerns, medical needs, questions, ailments, and emergencies. Sandy, with support from Diane Campbell and Natalie Littrell, works tirelessly to ensure students receive care and those taking medications or suffering from potentially life-threatening illness or allergies are recognized and receive proper medical attention when at school or attending off-site school events. Sandy is my hero!

BELLEVUE POLICE DEPARTMENT INFORMATIONAL MEETING: HATE CRIMES AND BIAS-RELATED INCIDENTS
The Bellevue Police Department and its advisory councils have partnered with the King County Prosecutor’s Office, Eastside 4 All (their partner coalition), and City of Bellevue DEI to start an initiative in bringing education and awareness to Hate Crimes and Biased-Related Incidents. They will be holding their first community outreach event on Tuesday, May 23 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Bellevue Youth Theatre.
BPD has shared that hate crimes and bias-related incidents are underreported and would really like to bring education, awareness and resources to our community.
HOW TO REMOVE MIDDLE SCHOOL GRADES FROM YOUR TRANSCRIPT
If you’d like middle school courses removed from your high school transcript, it should be done before end of junior year so your transcript is accurate when they’re sent to colleges/universities.
If this applies to you, please fill out the attached form and submit to Debra Andrews (our Registrar) at AndrewsD@bsd405.org: https://bsd405.org/wp-content/pdf/policy/2410p-exhibit-j.pdf
