DISTRICT COMMUNICATION

November 23, 2020
Dear Sequim School District Families, Staff, and Community,

So much has transpired locally in the last week around the uptick in COVID-19 cases. After thoughtful deliberation, coupled with rising increases in COVID-19 cases in Clallam County, and Governor Inslee’s Travel Advisory issued, the Sequim school District will transition to 100% remote learning beginning Wednesday, November 25th, 2020. We, the Board of Directors, the Leadership Team, and I, did not make this decision lightly and understand the hardships it places on our families.
The factors that we evaluated in making this complex and difficult decision included:
• The safety and security of our students and staff, first and foremost.
• We are currently experiencing a shortage of substitutes for all positions such as teachers, paraeducators, transportation, food service, and custodial/maintenance.
• We believe transitioning to remote learning will allow us the time needed to return our students and staff to quality in-person learning safely. We anticipate Kindergarten-5th grade students returning to in-person learning at the start of second semester, and at a future date, bringing back secondary students.

To be clear, we are not making this decision based on positive cases within our schools, or because Dr. Unthank has said we must. It is an individual school district decision based on what is best for our students and staff safety and health.

Finally, as we are planning for this holiday which is often filled with large gatherings of family and friends remember to Give Thanks, Not COVID. (brought to you by the Snohomish Health District)

Wishing you and yours all the best this coming holiday week,
Dr. Jane Pryne
Acting Superintendent
