Friends of Ingraham
All schools are closed until at least April 24, 2020. Please see the Seattle Public Schools Website for the most up-to-date information.
Our dedicated counselors and the Bright Futures team are committed to continuing to serve our students during this time. If you would like to help our Ingraham families during the closure, please consider making a cash donation to Bright Futures.
Message from IHS Counselors
Counselors are messaging with your kids via Schoology, email, Instagram and Facebook, trying to gauge questions, needs, and to keep connected as best we can during this time.
During this time we are asking students to:
a) Complete registration via the Student Source Account. If you or they have any questions or are having any trouble, please send contact their counselor.
b) Work on their Naviance tasks. These tasks and to-dos are a part of their "High School and Beyond Plan" which is required for graduation and tracked by the district and OSPI. If they have any questions about how to complete these, there are step-by-step instructions in Schoology and a list of all of their tasks. For those who have opted out of Naviance, if they have access to Schoology, they should have the “opt out” version of the lesson as well. If they do not have access to Schoology, counselors will provide those lessons in another way.
c) Just check in if they are having questions or concerns. We are all trying to figure this out as we go. This is a stressful time so we want to help in any way we can.
Anyone who needs resources can feel free to contact us. There are currently 26 sites throughout Seattle Public Schools that are offering to-go lunches, and potentially other food sources, as well. Starting next week they will also have packets of learning experiences. See the list of the 26 sites here.
Please let us know if there’s anything we can help with. Stay safe!

May 2020 IB Exams Canceled
The May 2020 IB exams for Diploma Program candidates are canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Depending on what they registered for, the student will be awarded a Diploma or a Course Certificate which reflects their standard of work. This is based on student's coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigor and quality control already built into the program.
More details can be found on the IB page. IBO will share more details and FAQs with us and on their website by 27 March 2020.
Any deadlines found on the IBO website are the deadlines for schools to have submitted scores for external and internal assessments, sample internal assessments and external assessments for some subjects.
Extended Essay: We are moving forward with the extended essay. We may be a bit behind schedule for assigning advisors, but not more than a week. Once advisors are assigned, they will contact their advisees.
