Forwarded on behalf of Snoqualmie Valley School District
As a reminder, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Snoqualmie Valley schools and Public Health is not recommending schools close or cancel activities at this time.
In case COVID-19 spreads to our staff and students, Snoqualmie Valley School District is working on our plan and will notify our community if changes are needed. As part of that plan, the District will be following the guidance of Public Health - Seattle & King County and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the meantime, we continue to follow regional developments, to closely monitor the health and attendance of our students and staff, and to prepare for any potential disruptions to daily school operations.
Extra Cleaning and Disinfecting: While Public Health is not recommending a change to our current cleaning procedures, the District is initiating a two-fold plan to enhance routine cleaning.
To accommodate cleaning activity at Mount Si High School, the District is cancelling Monday evening’s Community Open House and Classified Job Fair.
At staff meetings this week, training will be provided on the proper use and storage of a district-approved, EPA-registered disinfectant spray that employees may to use on common touch areas in their classrooms and workspaces. Custodians will have supplies at each school to provide staff who are interested in helping. While our custodial staff will continue to do their jobs cleaning and disinfecting routinely, per Public Health recommendations, this additional step supplements those efforts and allows more frequent disinfecting of common touch surfaces. We encourage an “all-hands-on-deck” response to support healthy school environments in the weeks ahead.
The best prevention steps for viruses like the flu also prevent the spread of COVID-19 and decrease the chance of getting sick. Please help us remind students to wash hands frequently while at home or in the community.
