Immunization Information Needed! Please provide an updated, signed copy of your student’s CIS (immunization certificate) to the school nurse. Washington residents can print a copy of this online, access you family’s immunization information here. Please sign, date and turn it in. If your student is from another state or country, please go to your Health Care Provider for an updated form and bring it to school. Thank you for helping to keep our whole school healthy! When we have 95% of the students fully immunized, there is much less chance of an outbreak of whooping cough, measles, mumps or rubella.
Our students look forward to this Lafayette Teacher/Staff organized event all year, which takes place during the school day and is filled with games, activities, and more! If you are able, please volunteer your time for this great year-end event to celebrate our students and their hard work. We need A LOT of volunteers to make Field Day happen, sign up to volunteer here. All Volunteers must sign in at the front desk.
Special Thank You to Parent Volunteer/PTA Board Health & Wellness Chair Aimee Corr and Parent Volunteer/PTA Board Member Claudina Valcarlos for bringing so much energy and passion on the importance of Health & Wellness to our students for the past few years. They have dedicated countless hours to the Running Club, Bike to School Month, Family Fitness Night, Field Day, Girls on the Run, Seattle Reign school visits and MORE – THANK YOU!
