List of Other BSD Family Connection Center Sites

The Family Connections Center (FCC) is here to help families find and receive the services they need to send their children to school ready to learn. These services range from emergency food boxes to a student’s first new pair of sneakers to English classes for parents. In addition, the FCC provides information and referral services connecting families with counselors, food and utility assistance programs, and free or reduced health care information and programs.

The Family Connections Center is located in room 211 at Sammamish High School. Students and families are always welcome to drop in, during posted FCC hours, but, where possible, please call ahead to let us know you’re coming.

Come connect with us at our parent Community Connections meetings! The focus of these meetings is to create more multilingual/multicultural spaces in which our students, families, and community members can build a connection to SHS, information about SHS, and advocate for their needs at SHS. Our last Community Connections meeting took place on Thursday, January 24th, and the topics covered included: Supporting Mental Health, Building Relationships Between Guardians and Students, Identifying Mental Health Needs, Breaking the Stigma of Talking about Mental Health, & Mental Health Support and Counseling available at Sammamish High School. We won’t be holding a meeting in February, but please check this page for updates on the next meetings.
