A Message from Principal McDaniel

Hello Klahowya Families and Students,

We congratulate you (both our students and families) for making it through a difficult and challenging year!! We are impressed with your grace, patience, and resilience... and we are extremely proud of our efforts as a school community. We all faced many struggles with remote and hybrid learning and are looking forward to a more normal 2021-22 school year.

As you prepare for summer, please take a moment to ensure that Chromebooks are turned off and fully charged. Additionally, if you forgot to pick up a yearbook or other items from the school, please note that our office will be closed for summer and will reopen on August 16th. We are happy to reconnect you with these items when we reopen.

Included below are several important dates, information regarding summer programs and the start of the 2021-22 school year. Please keep your eyes out for a newsletter that will be emailed and mailed to all families at the beginning of August. This will include more details regarding the start of school.

As we begin summer, I strongly encourage all students to do some reading this summer! While you are out having fun with your family, take a book (or some AP materials) with you... you never know what you might learn or where you might be transported.

Please have a fun summer. Stay safe, and we will see you in August!

Scott McDaniel
Principal

School Year 21-22 Plans 

The state will continue updating its guidance for schools as state and federal safety guidance evolves, but here’s what we know right now:

  • This fall, we will offer full-time, in-person learning for all students. Our schools will operate according to our previous start/end time schedules .
  • We will also offer a virtual academy (K-12) through Barker Creek Community School and a homeschool option (K-8) through our Parent Partnership program for families who choose it. If you have not done so already, please call us at 360-662-2570 to register or to learn more.
  • We will not offer a hybrid option beyond this spring. Families will need to choose between fully in person, virtual academy, or homeschool for next year.
  • We will observe the state’s physical distancing recommendations. As directed by the Department of Health, these recommendations will not prevent us from offering full-time, in-person learning this fall.

Over the summer, updates to state guidance are expected to reduce restrictions even further. We will keep you informed about how these changes will affect our schools. We are eager to welcome students back on their normal schedules this fall!
