District Policy on Virtual Learning
Every effort will be made by teaching staff to provide students with missed work due to COVID protocols in order to avoid falling behind in classes. Please note that students are strongly discouraged from participating in live streams when ill. When a student must be excluded due to COVID-related issues*, the District’s plan to support the continuity of instruction will be as follows:
Within one school day of notification, teachers will provide the student written coursework (e.g., posting assignments in Google Classroom/Canvas).
Within two school days of notification, the teachers will provide the student with virtual instruction.
Exclusion for COVID related issues includes:
Checking off a COVID-like symptom on the daily questionnaire
COVID positive diagnosis
Receiving an exclusion notice HSD
**If your child is sick due to a non-Covid related issue, written work will be provided and teachers will work with your student on their return to school to help them catch up***

Student Council Candy Drive
Halloween isn’t Halloween without candy! Some kids & families from the Ronald McDonald House don’t get go trick-or-treating themselves. Let’s donate some candy, so the kids and their families can enjoy Halloween just like us! As you go through your Halloween candy, please think about donating it! Bring your unwanted candy in a plastic bag to the front office collection bin, to the first grade hallway, or by the nurse’s office by Tuesday, November 9th. Also, we will collect unused bags of candy as the Ronald McDonal House pediatric patients can only have unopened bags of candy. Thanks for your delicious donations!

Pets Prohibited on School Grounds
Dogs are not permitted on the school property during school hours and at drop off and pick up times. Although many children feel safe around animals, some children have adverse reactions to pets even though they may be well trained. We have noticed some families bringing pets onto the school grounds especially at morning line-up or pick-up. Please be considerate of others by cooperating with this policy.
