Principal's Message Continued From The Home Page
As you have heard, we are busy planning in person small group learning. The focus for these small groups will be students who are in highest need of academic and/or Social Emotional intervention and support. The current guidance from King County Department of Health is to allow student groups of no more than 6 to come in person. As more is known about the makeup and schedule for these groups we will reach out to families whose students are being considered to provide more information.
In addition, the new date for our kindergarten students return to the building for in-person learning is Wednesday, 12/2. With Monday, 11/30 and Tuesday, 12/1 as asynchronous learning days for our kindergarten students so that staff can do final preparations for in-person learning. Families will be kept informed with as much advance notice as possible should there be any additional changes to this schedule.
More details on this in person opening will go directly to our kindergarten families, since they will be the first in the building. If you do not have a kindergartener but would like to see this communication for yourself, you can find it on the district website (linked here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vTODFXPez5EuJfwN_jCEDPoIXlrE5eRL1dyVxR1Cd5ngFkLGYNbVglgQoPoia619i-Qyo6TkHJ2IipM/pub?urp=gmail_link&gxids=7628 ).
