Taking care of yourself and your family is taking care of your community.
For students and families returning to school please keep in mind:
Stay home if you have any symptoms listed on our COVID safety agreement for families webpage. If your child begins to feel unwell during the school day they will be directed to a screening room and families will be notified if their child needs to be picked up from school.
If you are well enough to come to school:
- Wear your mask. We will provide masks for those who need them.
- Maintain your physical distance (six feet or more).
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water.
Our teachers and staff will be reinforcing these routines and practices.

All families will complete a daily health attestation before entering school buildings. Stay home if you have any symptoms listed on our COVID safety agreement for families webpage.

Our schedule will be 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Students and staff will follow the current Wednesday remote learning model. When at school, students will engage in regular school activities, which have been modified to keep spacing a priority. Each school will have protocols for bathroom visits and regular handwashing. During outside play, we will focus on keeping appropriate space.
We follow Washington DOH and OSPI guidance for face coverings. All students and staff are required to wear face coverings in school. Some students may be unable to wear face coverings due to medical or other conditions. Our behavior and health teams work with these students, families, and classrooms on an individual basis to support them in safely accessing their education.
Students will be provided cloth face coverings (masks) to wear at school, and are also allowed to wear their own as long as it fits our requirements. Students will need to launder their masks at home. We will also have disposable masks available in case of forgotten, lost, or soiled masks that need to be changed.
Transportation will be available for all eligible riders. Children are eligible riders if they reside 1) within the service area for their school and 2) outside the walk route. Eligible riders will be receiving more information soon so they can register to ride and find their bus stop. Families with children who receive specialized transportation will be contacted separately by staff.
Every school will be serving breakfast and lunch to every student at no cost. You do not need to have an account to eat one or
Viruses do not typically survive on surfaces for an extended period of time. To clean surfaces and objects wipe them down with the provided cleaner and disinfectant wipes. The most effective way to remove the virus is using a towel and cleaner to wipe it away. Just like when you wash your hands and the virus goes down the drain with the soap and water, the virus on the surface is wiped onto the towel. After cleaning, dispose of single-use towel or launder reusable towel.
Custodians clean and sanitize used spaces daily and high use areas multiple times per day.
To ensure used spaces get clean make sure your building team is communicating with custodians on which work spaces are being used. If working remotely from the classroom, teachers should try and use one area of the classroom. If using a part of the classroom outside of your normal area, leave an obvious note for the custodian.
Do not bring in your own cleaning products. Mixing cleaning chemicals can be hazardous. Every building has access to appropriate cleaning products. If you need more, ask your custodian.
- Spray bottles of cleaner
- Disinfectant wipes
- Cleaning rags
Custodians order cleaning supplies through the district work request system. Coordinate with the staff requesting supplies and the building custodian.
Case Response Cleaning
In the event of a positive COVID-19 case affected rooms may have to be closed down for 24 hours. The closed rooms should be well ventilated, opening up windows and doors as safe and able. Custodians will clean and sanitize the room after 24 hours has passed.
Staff and students from the affected room will need to relocate to an alternate room until after the cleaning is complete.
