Kids Photography will be on campus Tuesday, May 11th

Kids Photography will be at Serene Lake Tuesday, May 11th to photograph all our in-person families that would like a school photo. They will photograph all students (except for those who have already gone to the studio) that are doing in-person learning at school. Families with In -person students only need to use the above link if they are ordering photos.

For the Remote Students, you will use the above link to sign up for a time to have your photo taken between 4pm - 6pm. You do not need to order photos to have your student photographed for school records and the yearbook. So if you do not want to purchase photos, simply scroll to the bottom of the form to enter "Yearbook"  into the coupon code box. You will receive a confirmation email from Kids Photography.

Day of Photos:

In-Person students will be pulled by class for their individual photo. There will be no class photos taken. We have a list of the families who have already been photographed at Kids Photography this year, so there is no need for you to do anything!

Remote students will arrive at Serene Lake during their scheduled photo time at the back of the school gym. All family members remain in the car. A staff member will take your student (with a completed attestation form) into the gym, they will be photographed and leave the gym though the other back door. Signs will be up and it will be clearly marked for your convenience.

SCIENCE NIGHT!!! The whole family can join the fun on Thursday, May 13 at 6:30 pm. Presented by the Mukilteo StemTree and the Serene Lake Staff.

Attendance Matters!

ATTENDANCE: Call (425) 366-3500 or email our attendance clerk, Jamie Groshong, to report an absence. You must notify Serene Lake's attendance office or your teacher in order to get the absence excused. When students have unexcused absences, their families will receive a daily robocall at 6:00pm. Three unexcused absences generates an attendance support letter, our goal is to help families prior to becoming truant. A student is considered truant if they miss 7 or more unexcused days in a month or 10 or more unexcused days in a school year.
