couples and children at the seattle school
The Seattle School welcomes and encourages the participation and presence of spouses and other loved ones in our community, and seeks to be a hospitable place for parents and their children. Please see below for information regarding any special policies relating to Seattle School families.
campus child policy
Children are welcomed on the campus of The Seattle School provided that:
- Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to attend classes with their parents due to mature content discussed in the classroom. The only exception will be nursing mothers or babies of equivalent age who are bottle fed. Due to limited classroom space for some classes, children over 18 must have the permission of the professor to attend class.
- Children under the age of 12 must be supervised at all times by the parent or guardian.
- Children aged 12 to 17 may be unsupervised on the same floor as the parent while the parent is in class.
- Staff and faculty are not responsible for the supervision, discipline or safety of your children. However, staff and faculty have the freedom to intervene if they feel the child is not complying with the child policy or noise policy.
A group of Seattle School students have formed a co-op in which they care for their children. The Seattle School wants to both encourage this type of student initiative on behalf of the community and assist these parents in finding space for their endeavor. If space is available, The Seattle School will allow the Co-Op (and only the Co-Op) to use its space for childcare given the following conditions:
- Use of space must be requested at least 24 hours prior to need; contact Molly Kenzler at email@example.com or 206.876.6100.
- Co-op members are solely responsible for the safety of their children and for controlling the noise level.
- Rooms must be left clean and returned to their original set-up. Failure to do this will result in the loss of room reservation privileges.
- The Master Calendar Coordinator (Molly) has the authority to deny a room request due to academic priority, another Seattle School priority or prior misuse of the facilities.
