Safety remains our highest priority as we continue our hybrid instructional model. That’s why we are asking parents/guardians to agree to complete a state-mandated health attestation at home each day with your child before sending them to school or onto the bus. Please read the following state requirements carefully.
The goal of the attestation is to keep sick children and those exposed to COVID at home so they don’t expose other students or staff.
Each morning, begin with Step 1: “Does your child display ANY of the following symptoms?” If the answer is “no” and your child does not display any symptoms, then begin Step 2. If the answer is “yes,” then your child should be kept home unless their symptoms are caused by a pre-existing condition such as asthma or allergies. If your child stays home, please call the school to report the absence.
As long as your child has had no contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive individual, then they are welcome to come to school that day. If your child is considered a “close contact” or has had any COVID exposure, we would ask that you call our school to provide further details. If you are unsure if you should send your student to school, contact us for help. We are happy to walk you through the process.
PARENTAL AGREEMENT FORM
We have mailed home a parental agreement form (yellow paper) to sign and date that you acknowledge your responsibility in meeting the state’s daily attestation requirement. Each family participating in our hybrid instructional model will need to complete this form and send it with their child to school. We need to receive the parental agreement form for every student. If you have not received one or need a replacement, please call our office at 360-279-5100. We would be happy to send one home with your student.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership. We know this has been a difficult and challenging time for many of our families. In order for us to continue to move forward and keep children in school, we need all of us to remain diligent in wearing our masks, social distancing, and keeping sick children at home.
