Parents or guardians will be asked to sign a form taking responsibility for the laptop. A copy of the form will be provided when you pick up the laptop. Requests prior to 12:00 pm (noon) will be available for pick up the following day.

Families may check out an internet hotspot for the laptop if internet is not available at home (limit one per family).

ISD School Aged Child Care Survey

March 16, 2020

We have determined that during our school closure, the ISD will be able to provide no cost school aged child care for students in Grades K-5 for the following groups only at this time:

  • ISD on-site staff
  • Health care workers
  • Fire Fighters, Police, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians
  • Grocery store employees
  • Pharmacy employees

Please help us assess the level of need in our community by taking our child care needs survey. At this time, we have one location identified and will announce additional locations as they become available. Once you have completed the survey, you will be contacted by our School Aged Care Coordinator by email or phone to make arrangements if you qualify for no cost school aged care.

Thank you for your patience as we make progress on delivering the supports we know our community needs. Expect announcements regarding nutrition service and technology supports, including laptops and wireless hotspots, tomorrow. For additional community resources, please visit our Issaquah School District Supports web page.
