We are excited to announce that the Cashmere High School yearbook signing tradition is alive and it’s fully digital to suit our socially distanced students!
Jostens has just launched a new platform, Yearbook Digital Signing Pages, that gives every student in our school the chance to create virtual signing pages, invite their friends to leave messages, and print out the final pages to keep with the yearbook as a permanent keepsake. This is free for every student whether they purchased a yearbook or not.

VIDEO GRADUATION IS BACK ON!
May 20, 2020
Dear Senior Class Members and Parents:
We received good news today. The Health District called and said we could have our seniors come in and be filmed for the senior procession and receiving their diplomas. We will do that on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 according to the schedule below.
Charley Voorhies, a local video production company owner will film all of our seniors and create a video of graduation. The video will include the walk-in procession, reading of the graduate’s name and presentation of diploma, speeches by, class president, valedictorian, and class chosen speaker-Don Smith. It will conclude with the presentation of the class. It will be a nice keepsake and memory for you and your family in this most irregular school year.
Please show up in game day dress with your cap and gown at the assigned time below in front of the high school. If you cannot be there at the assigned time, please call the school and let us know and we can schedule another time. It is very important that we get everyone there to make this work.
Please get the word out to all your 2020 classmates. Contact me if you have any questions. Seniors, continue to engage in your classes and learning so you can graduate. Remember the only way you can go backward in your grades from when school got out is to do nothing at all.
Tony Boyle, Principal

Class of 2020 Senior Slideshow
Dear Parents and Students:
Last week the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction came out with the guidelines and rules for grading during the school closure period for High Schools. I am writing this letter to share Cashmere High School’s policy during this time.
Cashmere High School Grading Guidelines 2020
The following is taken directly from OSPI and is considered policy for second semester 2020:
Students taking credit-bearing high school level work will be graded using the following principles:
“This statewide framework will create more consistency across the state, but districts will still decide which letter grade system to use. However, “F’s” will not be an option. This is a very complex problem, and I am incredibly grateful to the parents, students, and educators across the state who offered their ideas and input.” Chris Reykdal, Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Washington
Do No Harm” clause definition:
However, this portion of the policy does not automatically mean you will advance to the next course in the progression. It is important that you engage in your classes with your teachers for many reasons:
Students, especially seniors I urge you to check you school email or contact you teachers by phone, text or email and please be engaged in your learning for the remainder of this Remote Learning period. If you have any questions about the new grading policy, please feel free to contact me anytime.
I miss seeing the students and parents at school and activities. I am anxiously awaiting the time when we can get back to our normal school activities.
Tony Boyle, Principal
Dear Cashmere School District Families,
During this unprecedented time, we want to thank you for the grace and patience you have shown us as we transition from learning in classrooms to learning in a new virtual environment. The push to take our academic programs online has required a great deal of learning by our faculty and staff (and we imagine your family as well), and while we have learned much over the past six weeks, we know we have more to learn and areas we can improve upon. Further, we recognize we are in this together and collaboration with our families is critical to the continued success of our distance learning program.
With this in mind, in an effort to take stock of our efforts thus far and gain feedback from our families, we are requesting you complete a distance learning survey at the link provided. In addition, if you have multiple students in our schools, we are also requesting you complete the survey for each individual student so that we can get specific information for differing grade levels. Your input is invaluable to us as we strive to improve our distance learning model and we thank you in advance for completing the survey. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your teachers, principals, or the district office with questions, concerns, or comments.

Notification of Rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."
Parents or eligible students have the following rights in regards to student education records:
• The right to inspect and review the student’s education record. District Procedure 3231 (Student Records) specifies the process for the inspection and review of student education records.
• The right to request amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Parents or eligible students who wish to request that the District amend their child’s or their education record should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the District decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the District will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
• The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official typically includes a person employed by the District as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the School Board. A school official may also include a person or company with whom Spokane Public Schools has outsourced services or functions it would otherwise use its own employees to perform (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
• The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the district to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
• The right to information about who to contact to seek access or amendment of education records.
Directory Information: Federal law allows a school district to identify certain items as “directory information” that may be publicly released without permission of parents or eligible students upon the condition that the parent or eligible student be notified annually of the school's intention to release such information and be provided the opportunity to indicate that such information is not to be released without prior consent. Cashmere School District identifies “directory information” as the student's name, photograph, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, dates of attendance, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, diplomas and awards received and the most recent previous school attended. Directory information shall not be released for commercial reasons. Any parent or eligible student who does not consent to the school’s release of their student’s directory information must provide written notice to the school. Please contact office staff at your student’s school to obtain additional information on how and when you may provide this notice.”
