Sequim schools looking toward 2021-2022 plans

Possible daily in-person education this fall

SEQUIM — Sequim-area students are likely to return to a five-days-per-week in-person education schedule starting in the fall.

The Sequim School District is planning an informational meeting on Zoom at 6 p.m. Thursday, when interim Superintendent Jane Pryne will share progress on plans being made by the Fall Back to School Planning Team.

To submit comments or questions, email [email protected] by 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Register for the Thursday meeting at sequimschools.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_V9KStOxVQMW_Jpk__tUqeQ.

Families will receive a survey on Friday to help inform the district’s plan, Pryne noted in a message to parents this week.

Precautions

Pryne said the district’s plan is to bring Sequim students back five days a week with a number of health-related requirements set by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and Clallam County Department of Health:

• All students in K-5 will need to be spaced 3 feet apart in classrooms.

• All students in K-12 will need to be 9 feet apart in music, choir and band.

• All students in K-12 will need to be spaced 6 feet apart during lunch.

• All students and staff will continue to wear masks throughout the day.

“We are carefully and thoughtfully working out these logistics at each of our buildings, with our transportation department and food services,” Pryne said.

The committee looks to have a complete plan ready for review by Sequim School Board at its regular May 17 meeting.

The board will accept public comment on this topic at the meeting, Pryne said.

For more information, call Pryne at 360-582-3262.
