Student Handbook


Dear Gregory Heights Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! Thank you for trusting us with your children’s safety and learning. Thank you for taking the time to review the information in this handbook about safety processes and procedures, as well as other school information. We hope this will be a tool you can refer back to with questions as the school year progresses.

There are many valuable ways you can support and encourage your child’s learning. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Spending time talking with your son or daughter every day
  • Providing regular, healthy meals
  • Making certain your son or daughter gets adequate rest (8-10 hours per night depending on your child’s age)
  • Letting your son or daughter know every day that they are loved and accepted for being who they are
  • Read books, e-books, newspapers, or websites with your child 20 minutes every day
  • Limiting or monitoring TV viewing and computerized games
  • Modeling peaceful resolutions to disputes
  • Planning family vacations outside of the school calendar
  • Scheduling doctor appointments outside of the school day as much as possible

We recognize the pressures on today’s families. Life has its fluctuations in demands and priorities. We hope that this may be a year when you have time to volunteer at our school or be involved in our PTSA. If you are able to join us in some capacity, please contact your child’s teacher, or attend one of our PTSA meetings to hear about opportunities. We are delighted and applaud you for
making that choice. We also respect and understand that you may not be able to join us this school year, and that your time may be necessarily limited. We know that being a good and loving parent is your most important priority. You are your child’s first teacher! Your contributions to your
child’s education, both at school and at home, are appreciated and valued.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to talk with me or your child’s teacher, or call the school office at 206-631-3800. We will be glad to provide assistance or answer any questions you may have.
