Olympic Hills Family Newsletter


Big picture

Dear Olympic Hills families,

We have had a wonderful week with our students in preschool and the Focus program back on campus! Next week is Otter Bridge, and we are excited to welcome K-5 Otters back on Monday, April 5th. We are also excited to start our new schedules and smaller classes for students who are continuing remote learning.

Where do I find my child's schedule?

  • Your child's teacher will reach out to you by tomorrow with their schedule for next week. Most students will stay with their current teacher.
  • In-person students: 8:00-10:45 in person with teacher. 11:45-2:30 remote with specialists and independent work time.
  • Remote students: 8:00-10:45 remote with specialists and independent work time. 11:45-2:30 remote synchronous learning with teacher.

Do you have an update on transportation?

I am very sorry to share there will not be transportation for general education students next week. We are still hopeful for sometime after spring break and will keep families updated.

Where do I find information about procedures for returning to school?

In partnership,

Libby DeBell
