COVID-19 Family Information

  • Snoqualmie Valley School District remains committed to providing the safest learning environments possible for our families and students. We partner with the Washington State Department of Health and King County to ensure we are following all of the appropriate protocols and guidelines.

    This information is being used for the 2022-23 school year and will be updated as we received additional information from the state and county. If you have any questions about our policies, please contact Justin May, our Associate Director of Student Services. 

    Below is a list of safety requirements we are following to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    • Students and staff who show symptoms of COVID-19 are required to stay home and should get tested for COVID-19.

    • Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate at home for 5 days. If symptoms improve and they have had no fever for the past 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, students and staff can come back to school and are encouraged to test before returning. 

    • Students and staff returning to school after their 5 days of isolation, are encouraged but not required to:

      • wear a well-fitted mask from days 6 to 10, and

      • remain masked for sports and other extracurricular activities on days 6 to 10. 

    • Students and staff who test positive after 5 days of isolation must stay at home for the full 10-day isolation period.

    • Schools must inform students, families, and staff when there are cases or outbreaks in school. Schools are no longer required to directly notify high-risk students or staff.  SVSD will no longer notify high-risk students and their families of exposure. We will communicate outbreaks to families through the use of ParentSquare, our new communication platform. We will continue updating our district’s Covid-19 dashboard with weekly on-site case numbers.

    • Our state’s requirement for school employees to be fully vaccinated to protect against COVID-19 or have obtained a medical or religious exemption is still in place.

    These requirements are in place for all public and private K-12 schools and child care facilities in Washington state. Schools and child care facilities are required by state law to follow these guidelines.

    To reduce the spread of COVID-19 Snoqualmie Valley School District offers free COVID-19 testing take-home kits for staff and students at their schools. You are encouraged to test as needed at home if you have had a possible exposure. You can also receive free self-tests from the Say Yes! COVID Test program

    COVID-19 vaccinations remain the best protection for everyone against hospitalization and severe disease from COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is now available for children 6 months and older. Booster doses are also available for children 5 years and older. You are encouraged to vaccinate your children if they are eligible, in consultation with your health care provider.
