QUOTE OF THE WEEK
We hope you had a wonderful Winter Break and a terrific week of distance learning. This week we tested 887 staff members for COVID-19 and are happy to report zero positive cases! This means we will welcome students in grades PK-6 back to campus for Hybrid Learning, beginning Monday, Jan. 11.
Also on Monday, the School Board will be voting on a new reopening decision matrix for grades 7-12. The matrix was approved by Island County Public Health and includes the return of 7-12 students to campus the week of Feb. 8, provided we meet all of the metrics and criteria for reopening. The matrix is based heavily on the new Decision Tree and Updated K-12 Guidance from the Washington State Department of Health. If the plan is approved by the Board, communication will be sent to families on Tuesday, Jan. 12.
