Collection of School Materials and Distribution of Student Belongings 

During the last week of school, we will offer three days for students and families to drop off materials that were sent home prior to the building closure and pick up personal belongings.  Chromebooks will not be collected during this time.

Using a drive-through process similar to Chromebook distribution, we will be collecting all borrowed materials (teacher books, library books, etc.) and passing out student belongings. The collection and distribution will take place during the following dates/times:

·       Monday, June 15: 9:00 am – 11:00 am and 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

·       Tuesday, June 16: 9:00 am – 11:00 am and 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

·       Wednesday, June 17: 9:00 am – 11:00 am and 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

 

We kindly ask that families begin to gather materials that were sent home prior to the building closure and plan to return materials during one of the drop-off/pick-up windows.

If families are unable to come during one of the windows, please consider having a friend or neighbor drop-off and pick-up materials. If that is not an option, please contact Steve Lesco (Steven.lesco@rentonschools.us )or Genevieve Ramsey (Genevieve.ramsey@rentonschools.us).

Registering a student During the Pandemic School Closure

Thank you for your inquiry about registration. During this time of building closure, the Renton School District has implemented a new online registration module for people to register that is safe for everyone.Please begin the registration process by clicking here to get started.

Please answer ALL questions, we need applications to be complete to be able to enter your information and complete the registration process for your student. If information is incomplete, you will be prompted by the system to complete the module to move on to the next step. If you are uncertain about some portion of the application process please email office manager, Syd Bensen, at sydney.bensen@rentonschools.us for clarification of any registration questions.  

Once your application and the supporting documentation has been received and reviewed we will communicate with you regarding registration completion and any other information that you will need as you and your student prepare for the upcoming school year.

We strongly encourage you to use the online registration process that the District has designed for registration as this is the safest most efficient way to enroll. We also realize that some may have a situation that does not allow the access needed to enroll online, in this instance we are offering a paper registration option. Registration paperwork can be picked up outside the main entrance doors to Tiffany Park Elementary in the clear plastic bin. Parents can complete the packet and return it with the additional required documents to the secure drop box labeled "Kindergarten Registration Drop Box" located outside the main doors. All questions about the registration process should be directed to Office Manager, Syd Bensen (see email above).

Victoria Ngo Selected for 2020 AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame

The following press release was shared by AAA this week:

Renton Student Selected for 2020 AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame

In recognition of her dedication to traffic safety, community stewardship and leadership, Victoria Ngo, a fifth-grade student at Tiffany Park Elementary in Renton, was recently chosen for induction into the 2020 AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame.

As a long-standing tradition, a panel of judges from AAA Washington, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington Traffic Safety Commission chooses ten top patrollers for induction into the AAA Washington School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame. Nominations require input from both the patroller and their advisor, including responses to a series of essay questions. This year, the panel received nearly 45 nominations from across the state to review and evaluate.

Ngo served as the first head team captain of Tiffany Park’s AAA School Safety Patrol. In that position, she supervised the squad’s six other patrol captains, trained new patrollers, organized and led monthly meetings, even created clever games that helped patrollers remember safety procedures.

Patrol advisor Denise Gomes says Ngo noticed and reported how long lines of vehicles entering and exiting the school parking lot from both directions obstructed patrollers’ views, making it difficult to do their jobs. That led to the City of Renton posting new traffic signs eliminating left turns into the parking lot; stating where cars can and cannot park. “This has been a huge insight on keeping the congested areas safe for our community,” Gomes said. “It has been students like Ngo who are making a difference in our school in keeping all children, staff and families safe.”
