STUDENT & STAFF SAFETY: With the return of elementary students, District staff and students will follow health and safety protocols including consistent and correct use of face coverings, social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing and cleaning and disinfecting. District staff will engage in contact tracing.

PUBLIC HEALTH CONDITIONS: Using the Department of Health reporting, there will be 50 to 350 COVID-19 positive cases per 100,000 people in King County over a 14-day period. Test Positivity 5-10%.

SCHOOL READINESS: Buildings are ready with the supplies to welcome students safely and staff are trained and ready to implement health and safety protocols. Families have the latest and accurate information including contact information for questions and visitor policies.

To move into Stage 5, positive COVID-19 cases in King County need to be at less than 200 positive cases per 100,000 people over a 14-day period. Risk mitigation factors implemented in elementary schools and middle and high schools for in person services have proven to be effective by the limited number of positive COVID-19 cases in buildings and more importantly, the limited or no spread of positive cases in the buildings.  The District will notify the community two-weeks prior to moving to the next stage that includes bringing more students back to buildings.
