I hope that this summer has provided time to relax, refresh, and reconnect with loved ones. 

The start of every school year is stressful. New classrooms, new staff, and new students all contribute to unknowns. The past two years have had more unknowns than ever before. As I write this, I would like to be able to say that we know what fall will look like in terms of COVID safety.  However, at this point, like you, I am still waiting for the Washington Dept. of Health to release that information. So, let's start with what we know.

School Day: We will be in school for a full school day. Our start and end times will mirror those of the 2019-20 school year. 

Vaccinations: COVID Vaccinations are encouraged for staff and students, but not required. The COVID vaccination remains an emergency authorization.  We are planning a vaccination clinic available to staff and students in August for those who want the vaccine.  COVID 19 vaccinations are not required. 

Health and Safety Precautions: I anticipate information coming soon. At this point, we do not know what the guidance will be or what decisions will be available to us locally.

Goldendale School District is blessed to have great staff.  Our staff will be prepared on September 1st to greet your children and make them feel welcome and supported in their learning. 

As soon as we have more information, we will let you know. I am looking forward to a great school year!
