    February 2020: Coronavirus

    As you likely know from extensive media coverage, the Washing State Depatment of Health (DOH) is closely monitoring the evolving Coronavirus situation. At this time, DOH reports no evidence that the illness is spreading in our state and considers it a low risk to the general public. Even so, we know this news is troubling for many families and staff as this health concern is evolving.   Our school district continues to follow guidance provided by Public Health, and will provide updates as directed by health officials.  As new information emerges, sharing accurate information during a time of heightened concern is one of the best things we can do to keep rumors and misinformation from spreading.
