It is our priority to have students back in classrooms to experience face-to-face instruction beginning September 1. We want to ensure the safety of both students and staff as we plan to reopen the schools. To that end, Dr. Christine Moloney has commissioned a District Reopening Committee to discuss options and provide directions as we plan our return to in-person school.

“Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for our students and staff and make sure families know their children are cared for and engaged in learning,” says Superintendent Moloney.

The District Reopening Committee is made up of 20 participants representing school staff, district staff and administrators, parents, and community members. The team met on June 29 and 30 to review guidelines provided by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and public health officials.

Participants are in the beginning stages of plan development and will come back together on July 9 and 10 to continue this important work. 

Your voice matters – watch for your email invitation!

To help inform planning committee members, we invite parents, staff, and students to share their thoughts, ideas, and concerns in a conversation using an online tool called Thought Exchange. On Monday, July 6, our school community will receive an email message with a link to the conversation available in multiple languages. Participants can access the Thought Exchange using cell phones, computers, or other electronic devices with internet access.

We hope everyone will participate in this important conversation and provide their input during the planning process. If you know of any parent/student without internet access to this invitation, please direct them to the district office to complete an anonymous form, or parents/students may call the district office at (360) 807-7200. The district office will be open to the public Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
