As we create community and membership, you are all essential contributors to the continuation of our Health and Safety plan. Your commitment to health and safety throughout the year and your willingness to protect the community provides our best chance to have a successful and safe school year. We are following guidelines from the Washington State Department of Health and University of Washington. We will continue to work with both agencies to prioritize the safety of children, families, staff and the community. Currently, masks are recommended, not required on site. Information about what to do in the event a person is symptomatic, exposed or positive can be found on the DOH Flow Chart (also attached to this email). Unfortunately, the classrooms themselves are not large enough to accommodate family members in the room, but families may enter the school site and drop off children at classroom doors. We are thrilled to have families back on site and in the hallways, even though our hallways will be outside this year.
