We successfully have transitioned to having Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade students learning in-person in our building four days a week! This week we welcomed back our final group, rolling out the red carpet for our Fourth and Fifth grade students. With our school district's cautious approach to adding more students groups to our elementary campuses we have felt a tremendous amount of success in our ability to plan and prepare for your children's safety and academic experiences.

I feel so proud of how resilient and supportive our families, students, and staff have been through this whole process. Please read all of the below reminders for continuing to support these successes. As always please reach out with questions, concerns, or compliments.

My Best,

Susan Husband



All students must bring a health ticket each day when they are coming to campus.

  • The ticket must have their FIRST & LAST NAME!
  • If you mark YES, keep your child home. DO NOT SEND A STUDENT WITH SYMPTOMS TO SCHOOL. If your child is showing symptoms you will be called to pick them up.
  • If there is a sick sibling, please contact the school office prior to sending your child.

If your child is sent home with possible COVID symptoms, YOU MUST CALL THE SCHOOL prior to their return to the school campus. Your child will not be allowed back in class until you have spoken with the school. A note will not be accepted if you child has been home with possible symptoms. Even if your child received a negative test you much contact the school.

If your child has allergies, leading to symptoms, we need this to be documented from their health care provider.

Thank you for keeping everyone safe.

ATTENDANCE - HYBRID or In-person Learning

What changes can we anticipate?

  • First the Washington State Rules for attendance change once your child comes back to in person learning.
  • Your child will be marked as unexcused each time they miss school.

  • You MUST contact the school office via phone 360 428-6125 or email: EVERY time your student misses school in order to excuse the absence.
  • Absences can only be excused for 48 hours.

Why is this so important?
  • If your student has 7 unexcused absences in a month or 10 in a school year, we are required to file a petition with the Juvenile Court alleging a violation of the mandatory attendance law. If your student continues to be truant, you may need to go to court.

It is so exciting, we have begun allowing students to again check out books in the library. Please return books promptly and look around your home for books previously checked out. We still have several thousand books out from last Spring prior to the school closure. You were sent emails over the summer and fall. A paper copy list of missing books were given to teachers to send home with your child.
