FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WAS TUESDAY, AUG 29th
We had a smooth beginning to our 2017-18 school year. Thank you to all staff for your efforts in making our first few days of school a success!
We invite you to visit each of our school websites and get familiar with the information that we provide there for each of the schools.
Spend some time logging into Family Access (under Quick Links) and verify/update ALL of your students info in our database.
You can register for sports in the data verification area, pay for ASB cards, sports fees, and school meals. You can apply for free/reduced breakfast/lunch in family access too (done annually). Or you can go to Nutrition Services and use the fillable forms, sign and print them and then turn them in to school offices.
The calendars/sourcebooks that we create each year are ready and in all buildings. This calendar has late starts (moved to a 2 hr late start this year), beginning of year openhouse information for each school and other important information.
CASCADE KODIAK TENNIS COURTS ARE OPEN!
The grand opening of the new Kodiak Courts was celebrated with a small gathering of Cascade tennis players and staff early the morning of August 7, 2017.
After a speech given by Superintendent, Bill Motsenbocker, we were honored to have Cascade Tennis players conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the six new courts. Afterwards, the students and staff enjoyed being the first to play a round of tennis on the new structure. These courts are strictly for tennis and pickleball (all six are lined for pickleball) and are open from 7 am until dusk. Lights were not in the budget this time around, but we were able to run conduit and electrical for lights in the future.
The Cascade Youth Summer Tennis Program that occurred August 14-17 for youths in grades 3-8 was a huge success! A lot of kids learning some great skills with Mr. H.
Alpine Lakes Elementary is moving steadily forward on time and on budget. The block section on the left of the photo is the mult-purpose room and cafeteria. The two-story academic wing is on the right in the photo and will contain the classrooms and library. The administrative office, staff room, conference rooms, and teacher work space will be on the main floor just to the right of the multi-purpose room. Alpine Lakes is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018 for grades 3-5. For more information, please visit our Construction pages.
The Cascade High School (see photo below) construction and modernization project is on time and budget with a final completion expected in winter of the 2018-19 school year. This is a phased project with occupation of portions of the new school happening at scheduled times. This allows students to continue to utilize the school and not be placed in portables during construction. For more information, please visit our Construction pages.
MAKING PAYMENTS ONLINE - HOW TO
Our families now have the ability to pay for fees (any sports participation fees, ASB cards, yearbooks, and food services, etc) online through family access! You can do this anytime. There is a $1.75 convenience fee per “cart”.
Chelan County Alerts
Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings that could directly impact you and your family.
Chelan County is able to send you emergency alerts via text message, email, pager, or voice mail (in extreme cases), based on your preferences. It is important that we collect this contact information because many households no longer utilize traditional land-based telephone lines.
The system is intended to be used for emergency alerts, as well as non-emergency incidents that may have significant impacts to residents. Emergency Alerts could be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water orders, etc. Non-emergency alerts could include significant transportation problems with prolonged impacts or significant ongoing police or fire activity. This list is not meant to be all inclusive, and demonstrates that this system will not be used for routine information. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also receive notification on your land telephone line (if you have one) depending on the type of incident or event.
Please provide your address and preferred method(s) of contact. Adding your address will allow tailoring so you do not receive alerts that do not pertain to your geographical area.
These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
