MESSAGE from Seattle Council PTSA: To better connect those who are most resourced with those who are most impacted at this time, Seattle Council PTSA has setup an outreach form http://bit.ly/SCPTSAoutreach that will help connect folks offering help with those SPS families in need. Please fill out the form if you need groceries purchased, medicines delivered, internet connectivity, childcare information, tutoring, etc.. Please also fill out the form if you can offer purchasing items, delivering supplies, donating items, offering tutoring remotely, other skills, etc. Circulate this link widely via email and social media. See the Seattle Council PTSA's website for additional resources to receive and offer help. 

Right Now Needs: If you need help through the Right Now Needs program, please contact our principal Andrew Bean and/or our school counselor Katy Vancil. Olympic View has funds from the Alliance of Education to support short-term emergency housing, food, and other essential needs. Support has ranged from gift cards to helping with a month's rent. This is a completely confidential process. OV have limited funds and will make decisions on a case by case scenario based on criteria outlined by the Alliance of Education.

Drop-off/ Pick-up Safety Rules



Please do not get out of your car in the drop-off/pick-up lane (highlighted). This area is intended to be an unassisted drop-off zone. On dark and rainy days it could be dangerous to get out of the car on the driver's side and it slows down the line of cars. For the safety of our community, please follow these important safety rules and use the drop-off lane as a drop-off only. If you need to get out of your car to say goodbye or assist young children, please park in designated parking areas.

Drop-off on 7th: Please do not drop off your child on 7th Ave on the north side of the school. This dead-end road is not a drop-off area.

Staff Parking Lot: This is NOT a drop-off zone before 8:00 am. Only if you are arriving late to drop off your child AFTER 8:00 am (and the front doors are closed), it's safest to drop them off in the back parking. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
