    Dear Denny International Middle School Scholars and Families,

    We are getting closer to the online launch of the 2020-21 school year this Friday, September 4th! Our teachers and staff are excited to get to know each scholar and begin the school year!

    Technology and Supplies for Our ScholarsWe want to make sure everyone has the technology and supplies that will be needed to fully engage in online learning.   

    If your child does not have a school district laptop, please join us on Tuesday of this week, Sept. 1, from 4:30 to 6:30pm.  We will be distributing laptops, helping with internet options, giving out some class supplies, and will continue to give out free books.  Please drive into the Denny parking lot.

     If your family does not have access to a good internet connection, we would like to help you with that as well.  We can help connect you to free or reduced cost internet programs, and in some cases, supply you with a hot spot.  If you need help with internet access, please come on Tuesday from 4:30 to 6:30pm or contact Ms. Hamilton at suhamilton@seattleschools.org or 206-252-8951.  

    If you have questions about the technology available to our scholars or need any tech help, Seattle Public Schools has information and a way to submit a request for help at the following links.  If you would like this information in a language other than English, please use the “Select Language” option at the top of the website.
