Fall 2020

PLAN FOR 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR

We have started school in in distance learning for Fall 2020 to keep students, staff and families safe during the pandemic. As always, our priority is the health and safety of students and staff. 

At this time, we cannot predict how long we will remain in distance learning. We will monitor infection rates and rely on public health guidance to determine when we can safely reopen school buildings, using the Washington State Department of Health decision-making tool.

We are planning for a phased return to in-person learning in a hybrid model. This could begin as early as October with some students with special needs that cannot be met in distance learning. The phase-in would proceed with younger grades first.

More information will be available as the plan develops.
