Students Returning To School

Following new guidance from Governor Inslee and the Washington State Department of Health, Franklin Pierce Schools is planning for the return of elementary-aged students for in-person instruction in early 2021. All decisions will be informed by public health guidance and lessons learned from the return of students for in-person instruction in other districts around the state and country. Guidance from the Department to Health advises districts to prioritize the return of our youngest learners and those “furthest from educational justice”. This will result in an increase in the amount of time that Support Center students receive in-person instruction beginning January 19 and a phased approach to welcome back elementary students beginning with Kindergarten students on Thursday, January 28. A remote learning option will remain available for all students. Please see the attached overview that includes more specific information.
