  • District COVID-19 Update

    District COVID-19 Update

    Since mid-December there has been a surge of COVID-19 cases, locally, nationally and across the globe. Cases across our region are expected to rise considerably over the next few weeks and then drop off.

    We know that with the sizable increase in cases, there will likely be an impact to our schools, and we will do our best to mitigate risk for transmission of the evolving COVID-19 virus. We are closely monitoring the spread of the virus and tracking cases in our classrooms, schools, and community. We are steadfast in our commitment to in-person learning and the health and safety of our learning community.

    Welcome back volunteers!

    We are again utilizing volunteers in schools on a limited basis. At this time only vaccinated individuals will be permitted to volunteer in our schools/campuses. To volunteer in our schools/campuses, please complete our online background check. This form must be completed every two years. For the safety of our students, volunteer applicants must undergo a Washington State Patrol background check before beginning service. Volunteers will also need to present a valid state vaccination card for COVID-19 to the school administrator and follow the school’s volunteer process. Schools may need to monitor and limit the number of volunteers in a building to meet the state COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing. Parent/guardians are welcome to volunteer from home by assisting teachers remotely.
