All Families are Welcome at our School!

As we enter the new school year, we feel that it is very important to let you know that

ALL students and families are welcome at our school. 

The Happy Valley Way teaches students to be kind, be safe, be respectful, and be responsible, and part of that is making sure that everyone feels welcome at our school.

A word from the Bellingham School District, via Policy 3210, Non-Discrimination...

Bellingham Public Schools will provide equal educational opportunity and treatment for all students in all aspects of the academic and activities program without discrimination based on race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, honorably-discharged veteran or military status, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, marital status, the presence of any sensory, mental or physical disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.  The district will provide equal access to school facilities to the Boy Scouts of America and all other designated youth groups listed in Title 36 of the United States Code as a patriotic society.  District programs will be free from sexual harassment. Auxiliary aids and services will be provided to individuals with disabilities when needed for effective communication.
