When should I keep my child home from school?
We would like to remind you about our guidelines for determining whether or not your student should come to school if they are ill.
If your student shows primary symptoms of COVID 19, we ask you to keep your child home and contact your health care provider to get a COVID test. You may also find THIS website helpful for covid testing locations. Primary symptoms of covid are defined as fever, cough, chills, loss of taste or smell and/or shortness of breath.
- If the covid test is positive, please notify the school and quarantine your child at home for 10 days or as directed by Washington County Public Health.
- If the test is negative, please follow the Keep Ill Children Out of School guidelines
- If you do not want to test your student for covid and they are showing primary symptoms, they should quarantine at home for 10 days.
- If your child has any other communicable disease symptoms, please follow the Keep Ill Children Out of School guidelines.
If you have a child who has a diagnosed chronic health condition that may present as primary symptoms of covid, such as asthma or another lung condition and the school is unaware of this condition, please contact our school nurse, Sydney Garl at email@example.com or via parent square. She may need to implement a school health management plan to help prevent your child from being inappropriately sent home from school.
Please notify the office if your child will be out sick. We appreciate your help keeping our school community safe. Remember to use the attendance link on our main webpage

Safety Drills at Sato
Sato Students Rocked our first Safety Drills of the Year!!
This week Sato students participated in two safety drills: a Fire Drill and a Lock Down Drill. These are two that are required at beginning of each school year.
Our students and staff did a great job with both of these drills.
The following drills are conducted each school year:
- Monthly Fire Drills
- Two Earthquake Drills
- Two Lockdown Drills
- Two Secure Drills
Bus Evacuation Drill
If you are interested, the video is linked HERE.
Every elementary and comprehensive middle school will receive a scooter/helmet grand prize and five reflective drawstring bags with smaller prizes to raffle off to students. We will provide K-5th teachers and 6th-8th 1st period teachers with a checklist of their students to mark how they traveled to school that day. Students who walk, bike, scooter, skate, roll, bus, or carpool to school on Oct. 6th are eligible to enter the raffle. The travel checklist will be the students’ raffle entry. Additionally, each K-8 school will receive a $20 prize to raffle off to teachers who turn in their checklist. Please add October 6th to your school’s calendar and share the newsletter article below, and attached graphics, with your school community. Additional instructions and prizes will be delivered to your school soon!
International Walk + Roll to School Day
On October 6th, 2021 join people from around the world as we celebrate International Walk + Roll to School Day. Walk, bike, scooter, skate, roll, bus or carpool to school and be entered to win fun prizes. The grand prize winner will earn a new scooter with helmet! Walking and rolling to school is great for kids, our community and our planet. Here are the top five reasons:
1. Fewer vehicles driving to school reduces traffic congestion and carbon emissions near schools and in our parking lots.
2. More people walking and rolling builds school community and makes routes safer.
3. Physical activity boosts kids’ readiness to learn and improves their physical and mental health.
4. Kids have fun with friends and bond with families while walking and rolling together.
5. Being outside builds independence and lifelong transportation skills.

Arrival and Dismissal
- After 8:30, morning supervision end and entry doors close, students must then check in at main office.
- Adults may not be congregating on campus. If you do come briefly on to campus while walking with your student, please make sure to wear a mask.
- When walking with your children to school please use only the 3 designated crosswalks.
- Do not cut across the parking lot or walk in front of busses
- We prioritize the busses.
- Change of go home plans must be received by 2pm in order to be honored.
Although Car Pick up has gotten better, generally the last car is pulling away by 3:30.
However, we need to have Car Pick up end sooner as Staff must attend meetings and take care of other school responsibilities. If at all possible, have your child ride the bus or walk with them to school. If you do decide to change how your child goes home please notify the office and your child's teacher.
