High school students working on MacBooks in the classroom

We believe in providing students and families with all of the information they need to stay informed and take an active role in the education and safety of all students. To help you get things done, we are proud to offer a wide variety of online tools that will save you time checking grades, bus routes, payments, and more.


How Do I Register For School?

    • Students may register year-around (except July) at the school they'll be attending.
    • To determine your child's attendance area, which is based on address, enter your student's grade and address into VersaTrans eLink or call the Transportation Department at 425.408.7900. School service area maps are online.
    • It is recommended that new students contact their service area school for additional information about the registration process prior to registering at 425-408-7019.


How Do I Make an Appointment With A Counselor?

Please contact Bothell High School Counseling Office Manager, Kelly Duhamel (425-408-7019) to schedule an appointment with your child’s counselor.

How Do Students Take Prescribed Medications?

  • If your student will be taking any medication including Tylenol, cough drops or vitamins you must confer with the school nurse, Deanna Wilson 425-408-7006

Can I Visit During School Hours?

  • Visitors and parents MUST make an appointment and check-in at the main office PRIOR to visiting a teacher and/or a classroom. "Dropping in" to meet with a teacher during school hours whether during student passing, a teacher's planning period or even before and after school is not allowed. Teachers will make appointments with you to discuss concerns you may have regarding your student.
  • Anytime a parent or visitor is on campus for any reason, you must check-in the main office and get a visitor badge. We do not accept flowers, gifts or balloons for students during the school day. Students are not allowed to have them in the classroom. Such items are very distracting to the learning process.

What do I do if my e-mail to a teacher comes back as blocked?

  • Occasionally e-mails sent to staff members are inadvertently blocked by our system. If this happens, please fill out this form.
  • Be aware that if you send e-mails that do not have a subject line on them, they will be held as possible spam. This can cause the e-mail to take hours to get through because the message will need to be reviewed first, approved before it is sent to the teacher.  

Visiting or Volunteering on Campus?

In our continued commitment to provide a safe and productive school environment, visitor procedures are in place at all Northshore high schools. We ask all visitors to follow these procedures:

  • Visitors and volunteers MUST sign in at the Main Office upon their arrival and wear a visitor badge while on campus.
  • Unfamiliar persons and/or persons not wearing a visitor’s badge will be directed to the Main Office. Visitors may also be asked for identification.
  • In respect for the learning environment, visits to observe a classroom and/or visits to see students in a classroom during the day must be arranged through administration.
  • School-age visitors and recent graduates are not allowed on campus at any time during the school day. Special requests must be cleared through administration in advance.
  • Volunteering?  Have you completed a volunteer packet within the past two years? Northshore School District volunteer forms can be found on the district website.

How do I excuse my student's absence?

Contact Bothell High School Attendance Secretary Amanda Lamer at or 425.408-7010 (24 hour voice mail) to report absences.
