    Dear MIHS Islander Families:

    Recently, there has been a lot of national news out there about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We decided to use the September newsletter to share with information about DACA.

    You may be concerned about the implications of the recent announcements regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will have for students who may be affected in our school community.

    Please know we are committed to fostering and providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming learning environment for all our students without regard to immigration status. This includes embracing diversity, inclusiveness, and equity with a focus on respect and acceptance of every student. We do not, and will not, collect immigration information from any student or family.  At Mercer Island High School we will continue to support those who are concerned about DACA and its impact on their students and families.

    Mercer Island High School is committed to educating all students, consistent with the message from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). While demographic information is collected from families upon enrollment (race, ethnicity, home language, etc.), this information cannot be disclosed to others, nor can it be used to deny enrollment.

    The resources below are provided to families who may want to learn more about immigrant student rights, and anyone is welcome to contact our schools or district office with questions. Our District believes that every student deserves a respectful learning environment in which his/her racial and ethnic diversity is openly valued and which contributes to successful academic, social and emotional learning opportunities.
