    Superintendent Update 11.9.20

    Last week I indicated further guidance on return to hybrid would be provided by Thurston County Health Department. COVID-19 cases have continued to skyrocket for the past 5 weeks. We have set weekly records for transmission since late September. What is fueling the increase in case transmissions? Thurston County Health Department reports much of the spread is from private, and often indoors, family and neighborhood gatherings. It is these types of transmission patterns that create concern for school reopening.

    Hybrid Transition Update 10.6.20

    First, I want to thank you for engaging with us as we plan to shift to hybrid instruction. We know how important it is for you to have some sort of in-person educational experience for your students. We are also keenly aware of how hard the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting you and our community. Our hybrid planning was based on a significant drop in COVID-19 transmissions, and our county health experts withdrew restrictions on in-person instruction. Unfortunately, in the past two weeks, case transmissions have spiked severely, reaching record high levels last week.
