All Northshore schools will be closed to students tomorrow, March 3. During the day, we will provide training to staff to engage students in remote learning that may take place outside the four walls of their classrooms should this become necessary in the coming days. In addition, our support services staff will be coordinating a district-wide disinfection of each school campus. The purpose for such a training day aligns with the encouragement given by Washington’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chris Reykdal, to all school districts to develop contingency plans in the event school buildings must close in response to the coronavirus.
We know that the remote learning approach may result in a hardship for students who do not have computing devices or internet access at home. If you are in this situation, please complete this form and we will arrange to loan your student a computing device and if necessary an accompanying internet hot spot.
Additionally, as we expect a lower than desired attendance, we will be rescheduling three important district events that were slated for this week:
- Curriculum Community Viewing on March 3
- i-Ready Information Night on March 5
- Skyview & Canyon Creek Expansion Project Grand Opening on March 5
We will send new dates, times and locations for the events once they have been confirmed.
Thank you for your patience as we work to best support and educate each student. We will continue to reevaluate the situation on a daily basis and plan for the coming days and weeks.
