The health and safety of our students and staff is paramount, and we are closely monitoring the spread of novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.
We are adhering to guidance from Public Health Seattle & King County (Public Health), the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We are closely monitoring updates, as guidance is changing frequently due to local and global developments.
Please remind your student of the importance of following good hygiene practices that prevent the spread of communicable diseases:
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a sleeve or a tissue.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use alcohol hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick. See our guidelines for when to stay home.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Although the spread of COVID-19 appears to have started in China, it is important to remember that Coronavirus infection is not connected to any race, ethnicity, or nationality. You should not make assumptions about a student’s or staff member’s risk of illness based on any of these factors. Misinformation about coronavirus can create fear and hostility that harms people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy.
Please see the additional webpages in this section for detailed information about COVID-19 and frequently asked questions. These pages are listed to the left if viewing on computer screen or by tapping the pages button above if viewing on a mobile device.
We also have a hotline staffed by a district nurse to provide guidance and information regarding questions about student attendance specific to their family situations or considerations. The phone number for the hotline is 206-393-4687. Voicemails will be returned within 24 hours. You can also contact the nurse via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, the Washington State Department of Health has a novel coronavirus call center at 1-800-525-0127 and press #.
