School Supplies

School supplies for all elementary school students will be provided by the school for the 2022-2023 school year. Students will need to bring their own backpack.

Middle/High school students only need general supplies (pencils, pens, paper, etc.) until teachers provide specific class needs.

North Kitsap School District is a 1:1 digital device district. This means that every student is provided with a laptop device to access learning resources in the classroom and at home! Returning students already have their district-issued laptops. New students will check-out their laptop in the first few days of school.

While our school work diligently to ensure that schedules are finalized, there may be changes that occur up until the day before school starts. We encourage you to double check your student's schedule/teacher assignments the day before school starts.
