Dear students, staff, families and community,
I hope this email finds you and your family in good health. Thank you all for your flexibility and understanding as we have had to make the transition to remote learning this week.
Returning to In-Person Learning Monday:
The good news is this pause in in-person learning has placed us in a much better situation from a staffing and health perspective, and we are returning all buildings to in-person learning beginning Monday January 31, 2022. We realize some staff or students may still be out to begin this week due to illness or quarantining. For families that may have questions about a return date in those circumstances, please contact your student’s campus office. Staff members should communicate with their administrators.
News from Washington State Board of Health:
The Washington State Board of Health is inviting parents and caregivers of school-age children to complete a survey to provide input that will be shared with a Technical Advisory Group the Board has convened to assess COVID-19 vaccine for inclusion in chapter 246-105 WAC. The TAG will utilize the 9-criteria framework established by the Board to assess and evaluate the COVID-19 vaccine for consideration in chapter 246-105 WAC.
The Board is seeking input from parents and caregivers as it relates to Criteria Nine: “The burden of compliance for the vaccine containing this antigen is reasonable for the parent/caregiver.”
To provide input, please complete the survey below:
I want to thank all of our faculty and staff who have continued to work diligently to make this week of remote learning as smooth as possible for our students and families. We look forward to having everyone back together on Monday. It’s a great night to be a Borderite, and, as always, a great night to be your superintendent.
Dr. Christopher Granger
Every Student. Every Day. In a New Way!
