This year we are requiring daily health checks and monthly signed health attestations. If not already done, please complete the monthly health attestation.

Upon arrival, students will have their temperature checked and once medically cleared by staff, students will be shown to their classrooms. 

Students who do not pass temperature screening upon arrival at school will either be sent home or placed in isolation while awaiting pick-up from a parent/guardian. Administration or the school nurse will follow-up with parent/guardian to determine appropriate return date.

 If your child is showing symptoms of a cold or flu (runny nose, coughing, fever, nausea, vomiting or other Covid-19 symptoms) please keep them at home and don’t forget to contact the school. Please click the link for the Symptom Decision Tree: Symptom Decision Tree PDF

Each public school district in Washington State is required by the state Legislature and by Congress to create and submit an Academic and Student Well-being Recovery Plan by June 1, 2021. The goal of the plan is to identify which students and student groups need additional academic and well-being supports, define how those supports will be provided, and plan for recovery and acceleration of student learning and well-being over the summer, into the fall, and beyond. 

In addition, districts are required to use an equity analysis tool in the development of the plan.

By June 1, 2021, districts must submit their plans via an online survey to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). OSPI has provided a series of required questions to which districts must respond. The survey with responses to these questions is the formal plan that we submit to OSPI. Two important notes:  

  • Assessment data is used to determine which students in each of the identified groups need the supports identified in the plan. Not all students in each of these groups will necessarily receive these supports.  
  • This plan is not inclusive of all the district’s efforts to support students. Additional strategies are a part of our larger district strategic plan.   

You can find the Academic and Student Well-Being Recovery plan that Southside School District will submit to the Office of Superintendent of public instruction below.
