Update Regarding 5th Grade Outdoor Education Camps  

September 15, 2021

 

Dear 5th Grade Families,

 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we need to inform you that all of our 5th grade outdoor education camps will be cancelled this year. While we regret losing this opportunity for our students, the risks and complications surrounding this camp experience are extensive (including universal testing requirements, distancing in cabin accomodations, more chaperones needed, and other restrictions). Unfortunately, we cannot ensure that each school can participate and that student health and safety could be fully supported.

 

We will shortly gather a team of 5th grade teachers to explore other opportunities that our students can participate in, that both focus on outdoor education and celebrate our students as they prepare for middle school.

 

Thank you for your understanding around this difficult decision. The health and safety of your students will always be our top priority. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dan Schlotfeldt

Assistant Superintendent

Snoqualmie Valley School District
