Reopening Update

Planning continues across the district as we prepare to bring elementary students back to in-person learning in early November.

We are holding a public Q&A virtual session on Monday, October 26 from 5-6 p.m. ( to go over our reopening plans and answer your questions. We will also record this and post it on our website, if you are unable to attend the live session. 

As you know, students in grades K-3 will return to schools on November 2, and grades 4-5 on November 9. Students will return on a half-day schedule M,T,R,F, with a remote learning day on Wednesday.  We continue to plan for middle school students to return in early December, and high school students on February 8. If you have questions please 
contact your principal

Potential Delay 

We continue to plan for students to return to our schools in early November, but families should be aware that if coronavirus cases continue to rise, our medical professionals may ask us to delay our in-person learning plans. We are in constant communication with the Skagit County Health Department and local medical professionals, and we will follow their advice. 

Staff In-Person Health and Safety FAQs

Our team has developed a list of Health and Safety FAQs for staff that we believe will also be helpful for families. Please take a look, and let us know if you have specific questions. A few items to highlight: 

  • We will have extra face masks for children and adults in each building and on school buses. 
  • Remind your child of the need to maintain physical distancing. 
  • Water fountains are turned off. Please send your child to school with a water bottle. 
  • Families will be required to submit a digital, daily health attestation confirming that their child is free of any COVID-related symptoms. A daily email will be sent for families to submit their electronic form prior to their child arriving at school. 

How do we get numbers down?

We can’t overemphasize enough the importance of following all of the health guidelines at school and in your personal life. In addition to physical distancing, masks, hand washing, and staying home when sick, Skagit County Health Dept is also urging community members to:

  • Avoid indoor gatherings 
  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • Avoid large gatherings
