community bulletin boards
There are several bulletin boards in the building. Each board is marked as to posting "authority". There are two boards available for general postings by anyone in The Seattle School Community.

Discounted movie tickets are available at the Front Desk and cost $7.50 ea. They are good anytime at AMC, MAC Showplace, Loews, Cineplex Odeon, Magic Johnson, and Star Theatres.
If there is an event to which you would like to invite faculty, staff, students, and spouses, and alumni to advertize for their event in the weekly newsletter. For instance, if you want to invite students to attend an area concert, seminar, or dinner with you, create an event providing a gathering time, contact information, and any other pertinent information.
The Seattle School Newsletter goes out weekly on Thursday afternoon. To ensure that your announcement makes it into the Newsletter, email announcements to Molly Kenzler at email@example.com by noon on Thursdays.
The Seattle School seeks to promote an enjoyable and rigorous learning environment and professional business setting. In this regard, all students are asked to be sensitive when in proximity to class/practicum rooms and those around them seeking to study and/or work. With regard to the 2nd floor student lounge, library, and front desk areas, given the proximity of these locations to each other, students and their guests are asked to be particularly mindful of library and front desk staff seeking to do their work and those students in the library seeking to read/write/study.
Of course, there will be periods of time throughout the day (i.e. breaks from class, meal times) when noise will simply be a reality. During other times, kind awareness and good judgment will be the rule. Toward this end, there is an expectation that any and all interactions around noise level will be both respectful and accommodating.
The Seattle School recognizes the important role of pets in the lives of some employees and students. Given limited space, our desire to respect the varied preferences of others, and issues of health and safety, pets are not allowed on The Seattle School property or other indoor locations procured for events and classes, including but not limited to areas that are open to the public and commonly used, such as the library, foyers, bathrooms, lounges, meeting and conference rooms, offices, and classrooms.
For the purposes of this policy, the following definitions apply:
- Owner: Anyone working or studying at The Seattle School, including faculty, staff, administrators, students, temporary employees, spouses, or others who bring a pet to campus.
- Pet: A domestic animal that is owned by, resides with, and is cared for by an employee or student.
The Seattle School will ensure that all applicable legal requirements are met. These include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act (WISHA), Responsibility: The Seattle School has a general duty to create a safe and healthful working environment for employees.
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Responsibility: The Seattle School must provide reasonable accommodations for employees and students with documented disabilities as defined by law.
Questions about this policy should be directed to the Daniel Tidwell, Facilities Manager at x126 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To print documents at The Seattle School, a Print Card must be purchased. Print Cards are available at the Front Desk and in the Library; denominations include $1.00 (cash only), $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00. Payment can be made with cash, check, or debit/credit card.
reserving classroom space
Students are welcome to reserve classroom space for class related purposes, such as Practicum counseling groups, study groups or other Seattle School events. Reservations are based on availability and must be made by contacting Molly at the front desk at email@example.com.
NOTE: Those hosting the event are responsible for set-up, teardown, and lock-up of the building. A small fee is required if the requested event is not directly connected to The Seattle School community.
student id cards
Student ID cards are necessary to access the classroom floors within the building; therefore you need to have your ID whenever you are on site. If you don't have your ID with you, you must check out a visitor pass at the front desk; this pass must be turned in when you leave the building. If you lose your ID, you will be required to get a new one (replacement IDs cost $15).
Pictures for student identification (ID) cards are taken during new student orientation. Students not attending orientation should make alternate arrangements with the Director of Information Technology within the first two weeks of class.
STUDENT DISCOUNTS: Student ID cards may be used to obtain student discounts for some events happening in the Seattle area, such as the Seattle Symphony and the Seattle Art Museum.
Student mail files are located on the west end of the second (Library) floor near the elevator. All administrative correspondence and graded coursework is placed in your student file. Any communication or document, whether in a sealed envelope or not, is directed to and meant for the exclusive use of the person to whom the item is addressed. Going through another person's mail or reading materials placed in another person's mailbox is a violation of personal privacy.
For closures because of weather or natural disaster, The Seattle School voice mail greeting will convey the message if the business office is closed and if classes are cancelled for the day. The website will also list closures on the main page. Questions about this policy should be directed to the Daniel Tidwell, Facilities Manager at x126.
