Cyberbullying Parent Education Night
Join us May 5th at 7pm in the Hazel Wolf Library- we will have a panel of speakers to share insights and answer questions on the topic of cyberbullying and safe internet usage.
What is cyberbullying? How prevalent is it? Is my child being bullied online or bullying others in cyberspace? What can I do to prevent it?

Many parents and teachers grew up before there was widespread usage of cell phones. Our kids do not think of the Internet as an escape from everyday life—it is a very real and ubiquitous presence in their existence.
Although there are many positives that come with technology and increased interconnectivity, there are very real dangers as well. Almost 90% of teens have cellphones and over half of all teens have reported witnessing cyber bullying. The chances are, your son or daughter has experienced or witnessed some form of cyberbullying.

Guest Panel:
Mike Donlin is currently the Program Supervisor for the School Safety Center of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia, WA
Ellen Selkie is a fellow in the department of adolescent medicine at the UW and is a member of the Social Media & Adolescent Health Research Team at Seattle Children’s Hospital
Detective Al Lebar has been worked for SPD for 30 years. His passion is being in schools teaching kids about smart choices and anti-bullying skills

Incoming Kindergarten Jump Start
This summer, Hazel Wolf K-8 will offer Jump Start the week of August 17-21. Jump Start will run for five consecutive half-days (usually 9 a.m. to noon). Parents/guardians will have a chance to meet with the school principal during the week and learn more about Hazel Wolf and procedures to make the transition into school more smooth.  Transportation and before/after care is not provided for this.

Families who have enrolled their child in kindergarten will receive a letter over the summer from Hazel Wolf inviting them to participate. Families will need to return needed health and safety forms ahead of time. Check the list of all participating schools on the attached flyer. You do not need to contact Hazel Wolf for further information; once it is available it will be sent out to families that are officially enrolled.

Green Cards for Buses
To request a temporary green card for your child to ride on a bus with a friend or to get off at a different stop please do one of the following: email hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org or send a note in with your child.  Currently we are unable to give green cards for bus 524 as it is listed at full capacity.  Most door to door service buses are also at full capacity.  It is best to request a green card at least a day in advance but can also be done the day of at least an hour before school gets out.
Weekly Bulletins
You didn't miss it!  This year there will be a monthly newsletter put out on the first Friday of each month.  The PTSA will give you all the happenings for the month.  We will keep the website up to date as best as we can.  
Reporting Attendance
hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org is up and running correctly!  You may also call the attendance line at 206-252-3584.  Please report attendance, absence or late, ahead of time.  Calls are made early in the morning to check in on unreported absences. 

FYI for how attendance works: for elementary the attendance is done two times during the day AM & PM, if your student misses an hour on either end it will be indicated as an absence for that section.  (i.e. Sally arrives at school at 10 AM- that would be an absence for the AM but present for the PM).  Middle School if they miss 15 min of a class it will be marked as an absence for that class period for Monday- Wednesday and if they miss 45 min on their Thursday-Friday block schedule.  To have an absence be excused it must be reported within 3 days of the absence. For extended trips you must pick up a planned absence form from the office, fill it out, have teachers sign it, and return it at least 3 days before the planned absence. As always if you have questions feel free to ask on the attendance line or email.
