Education notebook: Medical Lake High installs new safety fence

Medical Lake High School recently announced on its website the construction of a new fence on their campus. The fence is intended to increase safety for student travel between two main buildings and prevents unauthorized persons from traveling through the campus courtyard.

The new fence comes in addition to a new single-entry system for the main door.

The fence’s gates are locked only from the outside, ensuring that students can still leave campus at all times. Gates are open from 6:50 a.m. to 7:55 a.m. They open again for lunch at noon until 12:25 p.m., after which they will remain locked until the next morning. Students who arrive at school past 7:55 a.m. may enter the school using the main entry.

YMCA program offers free

membership to seventh-graders

The YMCA of the Inland Northwest recently began a new program that provides seventh-grade students in the Spokane area a free one-year youth membership beginning Sept. 1 through Aug. 31, 2020. The initiative includes access to all five of the Inland Northwest YMCA locations.

Students can register with proof of seventh-grade enrollment and the signature of a parent or guardian. Proof of enrollment can be made with a school ID, grade card, class roster or class schedule. Home school students are asked to contact a branch membership director for their enrollment.

Seventh-graders with current YMCA memberships can have their membership converted over to this program. There is no requirement on regular usage to maintain the membership.

More information on the program can be found at
