Dear Grizzly Cub Parents and Guardians,

Mrs. Proctor-Long wanted to send this out to each family but was unable to so, due to new restrictions using the Remind App. Enjoy your summer break and hope to see your Grizzly Cub(s) next year!

Make sure your child's immunizations are up to date!

It is important to make sure your child goes to their regularly scheduled wellness appointments, which often include immunizations. The summer months are a great time to get your child caught up with immunization requirements before the 2022-2023 school year. Schedule your appointments early, as health care providers’ schedules quickly fill up in August and September. Make sure to turn in your updated immunization paperwork to the school by Wednesday, September 7.

This reminder is especially important if your child is transitioning to preschool, kindergarten, or 7h grade, as each of these grades has additional immunization requirements.

Every student enrolled/registered in school or childcare in the state of Washington must have medically verified up-to-date immunization records on file with the school in which they are enrolled/registering before the first day of school 2022-2023. Medically verified immunization records include one or more of the following:

$30 affordable connectivity program plans for families

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is offering eligible households high speed internet (100Mbps download) for $30 a month with no additional out of pocket costs.

There are three ways families can qualify:

  • Income of 200% or less than the federal poverty guidelines
  • Program participation (such as Free Reduced Lunch Program eligible, or SNAP, etc.), or
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating broadband provider’s existing low-income internet program

What families need to know about this new ACP opportunity:

For those that meet the eligibility requirements:

  • $30 guaranteed plan download speed of 100 Mbps
  • 20 providers to choose from
  • New or existing internet plans
  • Three ways to qualify

Click here to apply and for further details about the federal program.


If I am approved for ACP and currently on an internet service plan with a provider, can I switch to a different internet service plan of that provider, including to that provider’s low-cost plan, and receive the ACP benefit?

  • Yes. The ACP benefit can be applied to any internet service offering, and providers cannot restrict you from switching service offerings or subject you to mandatory waiting periods. Sometimes providers prohibit existing customers from switching to low-cost internet service plans; however, consumers receiving the ACP benefit are not subject to these “existing customer” restrictions.

What happens if my provider has eligibility requirements for an internet service plan that conflict with ACP rules? (e.g. My provider requires that I pay off my past debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan)

  • ACP rules override the rules of participating providers in the context of an ACP consumer. For instance, a provider may generally require that consumers pay off past or present debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan. However, consumers who are approved to receive ACP benefits are not subject to that requirement (since the ACP rules prohibit providers from declining to enroll ACP consumers based on past or present debts).

Note: The ACP rules clearly allow ACP consumers to apply their benefit to any internet service offering that is generally available (i.e. not a grandfathered/legacy plan) and prohibit mandatory waiting periods (47 CFR 54.1808(e)(6)(iii)) and restrictions on switching plans (Para. 166 of the Report and Order).

Volunteer Information:

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 the following online form. 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.

Volunteers who have completed the background application and showed proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to:

  • Sign in at the school main office

School & district news

  • Facebook - Today, 10,000 Facebook fans receive regular district updates through our district's Facebook page - www.facebook.com/snohomishschooldistrict. This site is just one of many ways we communicate with our students, staff, families and community. Although we are aware of other Facebook pages, please note that this is the only verified Facebook page of the Snohomish School District and is where official information is posted.
  • School Messenger - Our district uses the School Messenger automated system as a tool for communication with our parents, families and staff. School Messenger works with the district’s student-data system (Skyward/Family Access) to notify families and staff through phone and/or email of emergencies, critical school and district messages, school/district closures, inclement weather, attendance issues, underfunded student meal accounts and other events/activities. The overall goal of using this service is for parents and families to receive critical information about Snohomish schools - especially information that affects their children - in a timely manner. As long as we have accurate primary phone numbers and email addresses on record for our students in Skyward/Family Access, families should automatically receive these messages when they are sent out.

Please remember to call the Attendance Line to report your student absent or tardy.

COVID-19 reminders

Testing positive for COVID-19

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate. The individual may return to school after five full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms) of isolation if:

  • Their symptoms have improved, or they have no symptoms, and
  • They are without a fever for the past 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.

Individuals who were COVID-19 positive and are returning to school after a five-day isolation period are required to wear well-fitting face coverings/masks for days 6 through 10 after their symptom onset or positive test result. (Note: The face covering/mask is not required on day 6 through 10 if the individual has tested negative with an antigen or at-home test any day after day 5. Testing beyond day 10 is not necessary.)

COVID-19 testing

All students and staff have access to screening and diagnostic testing through our schools. Our school administrators, nurses and other trusted adults in our schools have the capacity to test those with symptoms and those without. Our school offices and health rooms have access to rapid antigen tests. Testing will only be conducted on those individuals who have requested screening or diagnostic testing and have provided consent through the SimpleReport online tool.

In order to administer the rapid antigen tests, the state has mandated an online recording mechanism through a tool called SimpleReport. As part of the district testing process, parents/guardians and individuals ages 18+ must enroll and provide consent through the online registration tool prior to testing.

COVID-19 symptoms

Students and staff who have COVID-19 symptoms are required to stay home. If a student or staff member exhibits COVID-19 like symptoms at school, they will be immediately isolated from others and sent home. They can return to school under the following DOH timelines and guidelines.

Exposed to COVID-19
Exposed students and staff may continue to take part in all in-person instruction, including athletics, performing arts, and other extracurricular activities, as long as they are not symptomatic. If an exposed student or staff member develops symptoms, they are required to immediately isolate at home and follow the appropriate protocols.

Students and staff who were potentially exposed to COVID-19 are encouraged to:

  • Monitor for symptoms, and
  • Consider wearing a well-fitted face covering/mask (if age appropriate) for 10 days after the last date of exposure, especially during activities like high-risk indoor sports, performing arts, etc., and
  • Get tested 3-5 days after their last exposure. Those who test positive, must isolate.

COVID-19 reporting

Through our online Self-Reporting Tool, students and staff can report if they or their student have tested positive for COVID-19. All positive cases of COVID-19 should continue to be reported to the school nurse or principal so we can provide guidance and support.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 outside of the school setting should also self-report through one of the following DOH tools:

  • Use the WANotify App to report positive result.
  • Contact the DOH COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #, to report the positive result from an over-the-counter test.
