COVID-19 Information

  • In collaboration with the Thurston County Health Department, our Contact Tracing Team evaluates each COVID case and close contact to ensure we implement the guidance published by the Department of Health (updated 10.4.21). Please review the PHSS Flow Charts (updated 10.13.21) that is used to determine return dates based on individual situations. It is important to work with YCS nurses to review all return to school options based on your individual situation. The first effort to reduce the spread of COVID is that all staff and students who exhibit symptoms should stay home. The health and safety of our students, staff and community is a top priority.
