Community Meeting- Student Safety: Everything you need to know Wed. 9th 7pm library

Hello Seahawks Community,
In case you missed this information, I am sending it out again. I hope to see you all tomorrow.
 
Chief Sealth International High School and the CSIHS PTSA is hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, March 9 at 7 pm in the library of the high school.
The topic of the meeting is “Student Safety: What you all need to
know”. Representatives from Seattle Public Schools, the Seattle Police
Department, and other community service providers will provide
information about how students, families and neighbors can be involved
in supporting student safety on campus and in the community. All CSIHS
and DIMS students, families, staff and neighbors are invited and
encouraged to attend.

Attention all Seahawks!!!On Saturday, February 20th we rocked the Brockey Center with Seahawk Power!!!

We were serenaded by the sounds of our very own Mariachi Band and greeted by Sammy the Seahawk. While everyone was mingling with friends, bidding, and sipping on wine or beer with appetizers of course, we listened to the sweet sounds of Denny Jazz directed by Zachariah MacIntyre.

ASB dazzled us in their formal attire working the room selling raffle tickets and we must say they did a great job!

Our very own principal open the show with a welcome and the live show began! While salad was being served, David our auctioneer rocked the mic and during dinner we heard the sounds of sweet jazz from our very own Chief Sealth Jazz band directed by Brian Goetz.

We would like to thank our guests who showed up, and opened up their hearts and wallets to the students and staff at Chief Sealth International High School. We want to thank the teachers and staff who volunteered their time and services.  Your wealth of talent was definitely the backbone of this successful auction. Thanks to our parent volunteers who spent tons of money and donated their time in the process. We owe this year’s success of the 7th Annual Seahawk Spirit Auction: Passport to Excellence to all of you!!!

Drum roll please!  We would like to raise an additional $8,000 to meet our fundraising goal!

Like all parties, there must be an after-party!  We would like to open this part of the after-party to our online Chief Sealth Community!!!

The Give button is now open!  Let the after-party begin!

Reminder: Opt in for CSI Safety Alerts

Safety Alert System

We are implementing a new feature to quickly communicate to staff, students and families about “real time” safety incidents/threats. We want to quickly and efficiently communicate when our school is in Lockdown, Shelter in Place or Evacuating. This is an “opt in” only system – standard text messaging rates apply. Brief messages to all who are registered will be transmitted when the school enters a safety status and when the school is “all clear” and the emergency is over.

The messages will be brief and will be followed with an email and/or letter regarding incident details within 24 hours of the incident itself. Examples of text messages are:

“CSIHS Safety Alert: Lockdown 9:31 AM”
“CSIHS Safety Alert: Lockdown All Clear 9:45 AM”
“CSIHS Safety Alert: Shelter in Place 1:30 PM”
“CSIHS Safety Alert: Shelter in Place All Clear 2:01 PM”

As a large comprehensive high school, we have students and families coming and going from our campus at all times during school hours. We want to be able to quickly ensure the safety of all by implementing this safety measure so students and families can make informed decisions.

We are committed to safety. The alerts will come as soon as possible after we have secured the building. As always, we value and welcome your feedback. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact Christa Ernst at (206) 252-8559 or crernst@seattleschools.org.
