Tyee: 9/27 – Active Threat Training

 

This Wednesday, September 27th during 1st period, BSD Safety & Security will lead Tyee students through an informational presentation on procedures to respond to incidents of an emergency nearby or on campus that would warrant a lockout or lockdown response. Following this, all students will practice a Lockdown Drill in classroom settings.

 

Given the realities of tragedies that happen in the world, conversations about emergencies and violence are very scary for our students, staff, and families. We also understand it is necessary to prepare for such emergencies, and that training and drills are important components of that practice. By working together – students, staff, and families may better ensure safety on our campus. For additional information and resources, please be sure to visit the BSD Safety & Security Page.

Tyee: 10/9 – Korean Culture Event (Hanji Craft Class)

& Korean Heritage Language Ambassadors

 

 

Tyee Middle School is excited to host the Jeonbuk International Cooperation Agency for a fun cultural program for students to learn about traditional Korean culture. This class is designed to teach students about Korean traditional paper art – Hanji.  The event will be Monday, October 9th from 3:25-4:45pm. The event is limited to the first 100 students.  Parent/Guardians, please sign your students up here!

As you may be aware, Bellevue School District is in the early phases of introducing Heritage Language Programs across the district. This year, Arabic was launched at Ardmore Elementary. BSD is considering expansion into a Korean Heritage Language program and is seeking Korean Heritage students who might be seeking a leadership opportunity and are enthusiastic about becoming a ‘Heritage Language Ambassador’. This role will entail the coordination of heritage language students for listening sessions and serving as a liaison between the district and the school. If you have such a student in mind, please contact Principal Byron Lillie ([email protected]) with your student’s name.

This is an opportunity for Health parents/guardians (students welcome too!) to be introduced to and ask questions about the sexual health curriculum prior to classroom instruction and receive modification/opt out options if necessary.

Tyee: Nurse News

 

 

Feeling Sick? We strongly recommend you and your student to stay home if you are having cold-like symptoms. Please visit: https://bsd405.org/services/health/too-sick-for-school/. Giving a fever reducing medication just before returning to school does not make a student well. It may only mask the fever until the medication wears off. In this situation, a student needs to be home so others are not exposed to illness.

 

What are the fever reducing medications? Acetaminophen (Tylenol); Ibuprofen; Aspirin; Naproxen; Dayquil; Nyquil

 

What to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms: https://doh.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2023-02/420456-COVID19DecisionTrees.pdf

Tyee: Student Laptops

 

 

Last week Tyee students were issued laptop devices. Protective cases for the new devices are on a delayed back order and we expect them to arrive in the coming days. Below are three FAQs to help you out.

 

  1. My student forgot to bring their laptop to school today. What should we do?
  1. Please do not bring it to school – we have a set of single-day loaner laptops in the Library. These are intended for students who forgot theirs at home so they can get through a day. If a student forgets their laptop at home, please tell your student to notify their 1st period teacher, or parents may call the Main Office to notify our Tech Support. We will arrange to deliver one to the student. Single-day loaner laptops are not to travel home with the student, and will be collected by the end of 7th period.

 

  1. My student’s laptop isn’t working properly. What should I do to get them help?
  1. Students should come to the Library before school (8:00-8:25) or during their lunch period. If significant repair ir required, we will issue multi-day loaner laptops which are OK to travel home with students in the interim.

Cell Phones & Personal Electronics

 

 

 

 

Cell Phones & Electronics (earbuds, airpods, video game consoles) are permitted to be brought by students to school per BSD policy. Cell phones may only be used before school, during lunches, and after school.

 

Cell Phones & personal electronics are the responsibility of the family. Per policy, the district and school are not responsible in the event of loss, theft, or damage. We strongly encourage students lock valuables in the hallway locker during classes and through the school day. Thank you for your support in ensuring our students are maximizing class time for learning and limiting distractions.

 

To view the full BSD cell phone policy: https://bsd405.org/wp-content/pdf/policy/3245.pdf

 

Cell phone use is not permitted during class. Each teacher will review expectations for bringing phones in their respective classes during the first week of school, which may include plans for storing cell phones to limit distractions in class.

 

Please do not call or text your student during the school day or class time. If you need to get an urgent message to your student, please e-mail [email protected] and we can get the message to them, or we can arrange to have them call you from the office. If your student is experiencing some kind of urgent issue or emergency, they should notify a teacher before pulling out their cell phone.
