Hi Highland Terrace Staff and Community,

Below is the district updated guidance regarding field trips, staff work travel and volunteers. This is also added to the district FAQ page - https://www.shorelineschools.org/Page/7078.

Are field trips canceled?

All field trips to non-Shoreline Public Schools facilities located in King and Snohomish Counties are canceled until at least March 20, 2020. Field trips to locations outside of King and Snohomish Counties will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This decision is based on recommendations from Public Health-Seattle & King County. At a minimum, we will be reassessing this restriction each Friday and will provide an update if it is extended or lifted.

Our school team is working on what this means for the field trip we have during this time.  We will be in touch with families as soon as possible with information about rescheduling, canceling, and potential reimbursement.    

Is staff out-of-district travel restricted?

In response to the current situation, all out-of-district work-related travel for all staff is canceled through March 20, 2020. At a minimum, we will be reassessing this restriction each Friday and will provide an update if it is extended or lifted.

Are volunteers able to continue working in schools?

We absolutely love our volunteers! However, in an effort to limit the number of people coming in and out of our buildings, we are suspending volunteering in our schools until at least March 20, 2020. This restriction includes any non-staff member volunteering in our schools and/or programs (i.e. parent/guardian, community member). At a minimum, we will be reassessing this restriction each Friday and will provide an update if it is extended or lifted.
