school closedSchool Closure Update, June 12, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

    OSPI delivered this back to school document yesterday in a press conference in Olympia. The 58-page document discusses the parameters that schools must work within to safely get our kids back in our classrooms.
    I will be reading the document this weekend and then meeting with our adm. team, then staff to develop our plans for getting our Onalaska students back in school on September 1st. It will take some time as we sort our how best to get them to and from school, how to feed all of the students with social/physical distancing requirements, and how to arrange our classrooms to meet all of the requirements that the state and health department have developed as part of the plan to get back to school. I can tell you that it will not be "normal', as it was when we left on March 13. There will be restrictions on staff and students that will need to be put into place and followed. We want to make sure we've got this right the first time and have a solid plan in place.
    Our first priority is the safety and health concerns of our students and staff.  That will be our focus as we develop our plan.
    The Lewis County Superintendent cohort will be meeting with the Lewis County Health Department to discuss all of the requirements for developing our plans to return to school. This will also include guidance from them on facility use over the summer months, especially as we try to get ready for Fall sport activities.
    I will keep you posted on the progress of the plan as it is being developed.
    Thank you for your patiences during the school closure.  I know it has not been easy for you and your children. We hope some point in time to get back to our "normal" operations, but this will take time as the virus is still with us and is still a huge concern by our health professionals.
Sincerely,

Jeff Davis, Superintendent
