Planning for the 2020-2021 school year is being informed by guidelines from the Center for Disease Control, King County Health, the Office of Superintendent of Public instruction and other agencies. We are also referring to local, state, national and international models and examples of schooling during the pandemic as we develop our plans. These plans will need to be flexible as we expect there will be ongoing local and regional developments resulting from COVID-19 throughout the year that will require we make adjustments to how we deliver instruction and services for our students and families.
