|Jubilee Winter Clubs & Tyee Badminton will begin registration on Tuesday, October 24th. All students will be emailed the registration link Tuesday morning at 8am, and registration will be open through Friday, November 3rd.

Registration for Jubilee REACH Sports and Activities does not take place in FinalForms. Registration must always be completed by your student. The forms are sent to student e-mail accounts during the registration period. This is to help us ensure that we don’t receive multiple registrations from the same student. For Jubilee REACH Sports and Activities, we often need to utilize a lottery system when the number of requests exceed our capacity. The lottery determines which students will be placed on the team or a waitlist. Students who are on the waitlist are given a random number to determine their order. Please review the steps for registration below for more information.
Step 1: Emails and reminders are sent to students. All students will receive an email in their Outlook from one of our Jubilee REACH Site-Coaches with instructions on how to register as well as a link to the registration form. This link is to a Microsoft Form that is only accessible to those with a BSD email address (i.e. your students). Registration will remain open for 2 weeks to allow students from all backgrounds and economic statuses an equal chance to register for Jubilee’s Sports or Activities.
Step 2: Registration Closes/Lottery is performed. After registration has been open for 2 weeks the form will automatically stop accepting responses. Students may still register for activities by emailing their school’s Site-Coach directly (all late registrations will be automatically placed at the bottom of the waitlist, if applicable).
Step 3: Families are notified of placement. The Friday after registration closes all students who registered for a Jubilee REACH Sport or Activity (as well as the parent the student lists) will receive an email notification informing them of their placement as well as some important information about the season. If your student is initially on the team, they will automatically be added to the team in FinalForms.

|BSD: Pre-Arranged Absences
|As the holidays and school breaks are fast approaching, we wanted to provide a reminder and guidance to families scheduling travel about pre-arranging absences with our Attendance Office. Bellevue School District provides students with 5 pre-arranged absence days per school year. These are excused and can be used for family events, travel, extracurricular events, private school tours, etc. Days beyond the 5-day limit are marked as “unexcused”. Unexcused absences may impact students from receiving credit for missed coursework or exams.
Please complete the pre-arranged absence form prior to the absence for it to be excused. Students must obtain teacher and parent signatures. After they get all teacher signatures, your student will need to turn the completed form in to the attendance office. This form should be submitted to the attendance office at least 3 days before the planned absence so we have time to process it. You can find more information about pre-arranged absences on this page: https://bsd405.org/tyee/report-an-absence/
|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. Fever reducing medications include: Acetaminophen (Tylenol); Ibuprofen; Aspirin; Naproxen; Dayquil; Nyquil
Going Home Early? Students are to notify the office/clinic when checking out. If your student calls home directly to request you pick them up, please remind them to go to the clinic or office.
