Smart Restart Update: Preparing for Hybrid

Smart Restart Update: Preparing for Hybrid

As the rate of COVID-19 cases continues to drop in Chelan and Douglas Counties, district staff are actively preparing to safely transition our schools to hybrid learning (online/in-person). Our leaders are currently collaborating with teachers and principals on schedules and operational logistics (meals, transportation, mitigation strategies, etc.).

Along with other regional superintendents, we have submitted an exception request to the Chelan-Douglas Health District (CDHD) to bring back elementary students first starting with our youngest and most academically vulnerable scholars in PreK-2nd grade. Additional elementary grades would progressively be added as it becomes safe to do so. Middle and high school students would be added in the future as COVID rates remain stable.

We are currently awaiting approval from the CDHD on the exemption. Our next step is to reach out to our PreK-5th parents with a survey to gauge their comfort level returning their students to school through a hybrid model. The survey will be sent directly to PreK-5 parents next week.
