Dear Parents and Families,
The second week of hybrid in person learning at our elementary schools has gone very well. We are thankful for your support and help in making this possible. Students and employees are doing a great job following safety protocols.
The COVID infection rate in Cowlitz County continues to be in the moderate zone. Our community efforts to keep the infection rate down are working, which is allowing the school district to transition to hybrid in person learning. The district will continue working closely with the Cowlitz County Health Department in an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible.
As a reminder, we are planning to start hybrid in person learning for both middle and high school students on November 9. Please recognize that this could change should the community health situation worsen over the next week.
Middle and high school student class schedules will follow traditional routines with safety protocols and added safeguards against the spread of COVID-19. This means class will start and end at the same time as in the past and students will rotate from classroom to classroom, attending each scheduled class period each day they are in-person. On the days in which students are not in-person, they will receive instruction via Zoom on the same schedule as their in-person days. Wednesdays are set aside for teachers to touch base with students who chose the full remote option and to provide support to students who are in need. Hybrid learning for our elementary students will continue as implemented the past two weeks.
To help your student have a great day at school please make sure to complete the daily wellness check. Doing so will allow your child to arrive at school and proceed quickly to their classroom. For detailed directions on completing the daily wellness check click here.
Thank you for supporting our schools and please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
