Fall Reopening plans change to distance learning

Following a meeting today (7/23/2020) with Tacoma Pierce County Health Department, we learned that they have determined that it is unsafe to fully open schools at this time, due to the growing number of COVID 19 cases in our region. In his letter, Dr. Chen of TPCHD said, “We all understand the importance of quality education, social‐emotional learning, addressing food and special needs, parents’ need to work, and so many other critical issues. However, it is of utmost importance that we protect the health of our students, education professionals, and school support staff. At this time, I do not feel we can do so if we open schools for onsite instruction in September."
