9/28 National Voter Registration Day
Did you know September 28 is National Voter Registration Day? Are you registered? If not, it takes two minutes – you can register online or print a form and mail it in. Election materials are available in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese. Already registered? There’s still lots to do! 
  • Share reminders on social media from NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org and follow King County Elections @kcelections on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and key local information. 
  • Moved lately? Make sure your registration information is up-to-date
  • Have a 16 or 17 year-old in the house? They can pre-register to vote! And starting in 2022 if you are 18 by the General Election you are eligible to vote in the Primary Election.  
  • Finally, local elections are critically important. This year we have an opportunity to weigh in on decisions about our schools, roads, taxes and who represents on city councils, school boards and many other local offices. Typically only around 40-45% of King County voters turn out in odd year general elections – make sure your voice is heard! Ballots will be mailed October 13 – watch for yours and make sure you remind your friends and neighbors!
Help Us Keep View Ridge Useable
A reminder to share with our community at large: Our school is in session. Kids play here.

Our school is a shared space for our community, and the success of this space depends on our thoughtful compliance with keeping it safe for all. We ask playground and park-goers to follow the following agreements:

  • Use the provided trash receptacles.
  • Be respectful of school property.
  • Smoking, use of alcohol, or illegal substances is not permitted on school property.
  • Be safe. Climbing on the roofs of the portables or school is not permitted.
  • Possession or discharge of firearms, air guns, slingshots, fireworks are not permitted on school grounds.
  • Noise levels and sound generated by park attendees should be kept at a reasonable level that respects the surrounding neighborhood.
  • Motor vehicles and motorized devices on grass areas are not permitted.
  • Please enjoy the plants, grass, and parts of the environment supported and maintained by View Ridge students.

If you observe any person violating the above agreements, please contact SPS security at: 206-252-0707.
