Locker requests can be made through our custodian in mid September.

Students- Keep Your ORCA Card!   

Do not throw away your Orca card, your current ORCA card will become your NEW Free Youth Transit Pass. You can use your card during the summer and use for the upcoming 22-23 school year!  Ignore the expiration date (8/31/22) on the back. If you lose your card, or it gets damaged email your request to: transORCA@seattleschools.org  

For students who chose to not pick up an ORCA card during this past school year, they can pick up an ORCA Card in September, when the new school year begins. You will not be able to order an ORCA card over the summer.  Only replacement requests will be considered.Questions?
