COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 April 6 Update
Posted on 04/06/2020

Dear all,

Today, Governor Inslee announced that schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.  During this closure, all schools in our district will remain closed. 

Again, as we wrote last week, we acknowledge continued school closures are difficult on students, staff, families and the entire community. This is very disappointing news for all of us.  We are working quickly to answer your questions as soon as possible. In the meantime, here is what we know now:

  • Continuous learning will continue as long as schools are closed. We are committed to continuing to partner with families and community to support our students’ learning while they are at home.
    •  We will be reaching out to you after this week to talk about details for the remainder of the year. 
  • We will be reaching out to you after this week to talk about details for the remainder of the year. 

  • High school seniors will receive support from their school leaders and guidance counselors on opportunities to earn and document credits they need for postsecondary transitions. We are also working with the state’s college system to ensure smooth transitions.

  • We will continue to provide meals Monday through Friday.

  • Child care will continue to be available in a limited capacity for children of first responders and health care workers.

  • Graduation will be altered and we will work hard to make this a special event for our seniors. 

  • We are awaiting information from the Governor on whether school facilities will be open to provide summer school.

I will close by saying that we appreciate your kind words via email. I share your "thank yous" with my staff and they mean a lot to us. 

This has been one heck of a surreal ordeal with a lot more questions than answers! We will continue to find answers and resolutions that best support the students and families of Fife Public Schools. Afterall, Together We Are Fife!
