Get The Details

Hay Way

Hay Way is a way to drop off and pick up of your child via your car.  Drop off occurs along Garfield in front of the school, heading EAST only.  Please do not let your child out of the car until the car has driven into the pull in area along the far, east end of the school on Garfield. Look for the safety patrol, who will graciously open your child’s door for them.

Pick up along Hay Way is very similar to drop off.  Everyone heads EAST on Garfield, cars drive slowly into the pull in area where students are then allowed to enter the car.  If your child is not waiting for you at Hay Way, please circle around the block to give room for other families to pick up their child.  The line can get long at pick up.  For courtesy of our neighbors and the environment, please turn off your engine until after the dismissal bell rings at 3:40.

New Front Door Procedure

After 9:30 AM, the front door will be locked.  How will you get in the building?  Just press the intercom button to the left of the front door.  The office will gladly ring you in.  Please enter through the door on the right.  Proceed directly to the office to sign-in and receive your visitor badge.

Morning Supervision Starts at 9:05

All children report to the playground before school.  Students will line-up on the playground when the first bell rings at 9:25 AM.

Advanced Learning

Testing for Advanced Learning placement needs to be requested by October 8th. The forms are online this year. You can also find quite a bit of information online about ALO and we are always open to questions if you would like to stop by or email.



Jaguar Choraliers

All 3rd through 5th graders are invited to be a member of the John Hay choir. Interested students can sign up online here.

We will sing and celebrate music from multiple genres and countries. The goals of the Jaguar Choraliers are to experience meaningful music, further self-confidence, and gain performance and music skills. 

We will rehearse Thursday and Fridays at 8:30 am – 9:10 am beginning October 15th. Students may arrive no earlier than 8:20 am.

Before and After School Activities

There are lots of fun activities and clubs for John Hay kids to participate in before & after school. Fall enrollment will begin on Monday September 21st, with the classes starting in early to mid-October. 

Weekend Food For Kids
Weekend Food for Kids works with schools in Queen Anne and Magnolia to provide extra food for students on weekends when free and reduced price school meals are not available.  

In partnership with Queen Anne Helpline, Ballard Food Bank, and Queen Anne Presbyterian Church participating students receive pre-packed bags of nonperishable food items containing the equivalent of seven meals and snacks. 

To sign up, please return this form to Assistant Principal Mr. Berkenwald or to the front office.  

John Hay Foundation

Multi-Arts Fee
Like previous years at John Hay, we support our Multi-Arts program through a yearly ask of $25. This year’s ask will be sent home shortly after school starts. Please support this program as we continue funding Multi-Arts at John Hay Elementary.

There are many ways you can volunteer in the John Hay community. From leading a committee, lunch room help, classroom assistance, outside of school events and needs, sharing your voice at our monthly meetings, to fundraising, and many more. 

We have a wide variety of opportunities that you can assist with making our community an even better place for our children to learn.

Next Partners Meeting

Please join us for the next John Hay Partner Board on October 15th from 5:30-7pm in the John Hay Library.  All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Shop for John Hay

Did you know that you can make money for John Hay just by shopping?  If you shop on Amazon, at Safeway or Bartell’s, John Hay can benefit.  Please go here to see all the programs.  Also, we collect Box Tops for Education.  You can drop them off in the volunteer office.

Playground Steering Committee - Community Members Needed!

Our Playground Steering Committee has been applying for grants to improve our playground.  The feedback we have received is that our committee requires some community members who are not John Hay parents.  If you know of folks that would be positively impacted by an improved/revamped play field and who may be interested in helping drive this project please contact Lee Scovern at (206) 910-7272 or email
