STUDENT & STAFF SAFETY: In Stage 5, our hybrid learning stage, 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 Less than 200 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 6: To move from Stage 5 to 6, positive COVID-19 cases in King County need to drop to less than 50 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. In addition, we must be able to maintain physical distancing parameters as defined by the Center for Disease Control. With the current 6-foot requirement for physical distancing and the current building capacity, we would not be able to enter Stage 6.

The District will notify the community two-weeks prior to moving to the next stage that includes bringing more students back to buildings.
