Issaquah Education Association and Issaquah School District Joint Message Regarding the Upcoming School Year
Posted on June 18, 2021
Together we worked hard to face the challenges last year brought. We are now looking to prepare for the upcoming school year. This fall we are planning to return to our regularly scheduled, in-person instruction.
We know that staff, students, and families alike are coming back from a wide range of experiences. We will continue to support students and families through another time of transition. Going back to our regular schedule is a welcomed transition! We also acknowledge that students and staff may experience this transition differently. With this awareness, we are working together to prepare for any remaining challenges and new opportunities that come with a return to full in-person schooling this fall.
What can families expect this fall?
- 5 school days per week
- Traditional bell schedules, much like pre-pandemic
- Canvas and Clever will continue as our learning management systems
- We eagerly anticipate a return to hands-on, in-class and group experiences in science, in CTE classes, in the visual and performing arts and more
- Adherence to health and safety measures provided by the Seattle King County Public Health Department, the Governor’s office, OSPI and the Washington State Department of Health (DOH)
- Currently, this includes mask wearing and physical distancing to the degree possible.
- DOH and OSPI have been clear that social distancing requirements cannot and will not prevent any or all student(s) from attending all day in person.
- At this time, attestation will not be required. Instead, parents will monitor their students prior to sending them to school; students with symptoms of illness should stay home.
- As we have done in the past, students who become ill at school will be cared for in the isolation room and staff will contact parents and guardians to pick them up.
- We will continue monitoring and communicate any changes to the health and safety measures
- The District and Association will continue to review the guidance and work together to ensure a smooth opening in the fall
In partnership and in anticipation of a great fall,
Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources
Issaquah Education Association President
