Full-time, In-Person Learning, Fall 2021

We are planning for a full reopening of all schools PreK through grade 12, starting in September 2021, as long as public health authorities continue to support in-person schooling.

We plan to provide in-person instruction five days a week, following pre-pandemic school hours. PreK will be four days, 2.5 hours a day. Elementary and secondary schools will be full school days.

We will continue to adhere to public health guidance on distancing, masks and other safety measures. We will use three-foot spacing, as recommended by the CDC and Washington State Department of Health.

Families who choose not to send their students for in-person school due to family health issues will be able to select a remote learning option.
