MIHS Announcement Listserv: The announcement listserv is a joint project of the school district and the PTSA and is used to augment other forms of communications. The Announcement Listserv is divided by class and is used to communicate timely announcements and event reminders. If you are already subscribed to the list, either as a MIHS parent or IMS parent, your subscription automatically continues. THERE IS NO NEED TO RESUBSCRIBE.
The Emergency listserv is housed by the outside organization and is tied directly to the school closure and late start media broadcast system. We will use this system to broadcast emergency or safety related messages.
In order to get immediate updates via email and/or text you must register with the Flash Alert Network at http://www.flashalert.net. The old School Report system has migrated to Flash Alert so even if you were previously receiving alerts, you must re-register with Flash Alert.
If you encounter difficulties joining this list, please contact Andreeves Ronser.

MIHS Volunteer & Visitor Procedures
All parents and community members who volunteer in Mercer Island schools must fill out and sign a state-mandated disclosure form. Washington State law (RCW 43.43.830) requires that all parent and community volunteers who will have regular access to students, including volunteers who accompany students on field trips, submit a form to their child's school. This will allow the District to request a background check through the Washington State Patrol Criminal Identification Division.
Volunteer disclosure forms are available at each school's main office. All volunteers must fill out a form and deliver it to the school’s Administrative Assistant prior to the first volunteer activity. A form must be completed for every school in which a person volunteers.
Please help the District comply with Washington State regulations by completing the disclosure form. Please remember to sign in at the main office and pick up a "Volunteer" badge to wear.
Also adults visiting the high during the school day are to register in the Main Office and pick up a "Visitor" badge to wear while in the building. This assists the school in monitoring who is in the building during class hours.More Information on the procedures (MISD Website)List of Volunteer Opportunities and Sign-up (PTSA Website)
