• 2022-23 Learning Updates  

    In September of 2022 our schools fully open for full-time in-person learning for our students. 

    The District also offers a full-time remote opportunity - Tumwater Virtual Academy - for students who choose to learn remotely.

    2022-23 Safe Return Plan

    Our district is committed to providing a learning environment that protects student and staff health and safety:

    • Face coverings will continue to be encouraged. Each student and staff member will be able to choose whether they will wear a face covering and we ask that each person's choice be respected.
    • Families are encouraged to screen their child(ren) at home each school day before they leave for school for any COVID-related symptoms. If your child has any of the symptoms listed below, please keep them home and consult with your health care provider: 
      • fever greater than 100.4 or chills
      • difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
      • muscle or body aches
      • new loss of taste or smell
      • cough (new, changed, or worsening), congestion or runny nose
      • nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
      • fatigue
      • sore throat
    • Each school will have a designated area where sick students can be separated until they can be picked up by an authorized person.
    • Students will be encouraged to wash their hands regularly and/or use hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer will be available in several locations throughout each school.
    • Positive Tests for COVID-19:
      • If an individual tests positive, they are required to stay home for 5 days (day zero is the day of onset of symptoms, or test if no symptoms) and wear a well-fitting mask from day 6 to 10.
      • A second test is recommended on day 5, and if that test is positive, the individual is required to stay home an additional 5 days or wear a tight-fitting mask.
    • Our district facilities have upgraded filtration systems, increased ventilation, and will continue with the enhanced program of cleaning and disinfection in our schools.
    • Free at-home test kits are available for pickup at each of our schools. If a parent/guardian is unable to pick one up, they can request they be mailed to their home.

    *If regulations change, our plans may be adjusted and we will communicate with staff and families.
