Health Youth Survey 2023

Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2023. The survey will be given to students in Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 in large districts and students in Grades 6 through 12 in small school districts.

The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

Students will complete the survey on October 19th or 20th during their social studies/history period. Students will use their computers to complete the survey digitally. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. There are no codes or information used to match a survey to a student. 

Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey. If you would like to opt your child out of the survey, please email or call 425-408-6701, and we will have your student added to our opt-out list. On the day of the survey, opted-out students will spend this time quietly doing schoolwork.

Device Protection Plan for Student Device

The Device Protection Plan program launching during the 2023-24 school year covers the device (Chromebook, Macbook, or iPad) loaned to your student against accidental damage for the school year. This program does NOT cover damage resulting from misuse or loss of the device. The standard payment to enroll in the Student Device Protection Plan is $25 per year; free for students who have qualified for free or reduced-price meals and who have provided consent to share their status for fee waivers. If the assigned device is accidentally damaged, families will be charged according to a deductible schedule if enrolled in the Device Protection Plan program.
