Sequim schools looking toward 2021-2022 plans

Sequim-area students may be returning to a five-days-per-week plan starting the fall of 2021.

Families will receive a survey on May 7 to help inform the district’s plan, Pryne noted in a message to parents this week.

Pryne said the district’s plan is to bring Sequim students back five days a week with a number of health-related requirements set by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and Clallam County Department of Health:

• All students in K-5 will need to be spaced 3 feet feet apart in classrooms

• All students in K-12 will need to be 9 feet feet apart in music, choir and band

• All students in K-12 will need to be spaced 6 feet apart during lunch

• All students and staff will continue to wear masks throughout the day

“We are carefully and thoughtfully working out these logistics at each of our buildings, with our transportation department and food services,” Pryne said.

The committee looks to have a complete plan ready for review by Sequim School Board directors at their regular May 17 meeting. The board will accept public comment on this topic at the meeting, Pryne said.
