SEAQUAM SECONDARY APP

Seaquam has a new app that is available for both IOS and Android devices.  Go to thier respective stores and search "Seaquam Secondary" and you should find it.  This new app has been developed by the agenda book company that we use.  This app has many great features: calendar, schedules (set manually by the student initially), news feed, push notifications from the district and school, school handbook, teacher channels etc.  Very worthwhile for students and parents to use.  Attached is more information. 


Dropping off and Picking up Students at Seaquam

This is a reminder to parents about dropping off and picking up of your students.  Between 8am and 4pm picking up and dropping off of students in the school parking lots IS NOT PERMITTED.  This is a safety issue. If you need to drop off or pick up your student please do so on Lyon Rd or further away from the school.  When driving down or parking on Lyon Rd please do not do U Turns.  This is dangerous for other motorists as well as students crossing the road.  Also, please observe the speed limits in school zones and be watchful of students crossing at the crosswalk.
