Message From the Principal
At King’s Elementary it is important that we support exceptional learning experiences for students while providing a safe environment for every member of our community. Current plans for King’s Elementary will limit student density on campus while also meeting and exceeding Washington Department of Health guidelines and expectations. Our goal is to have every student on campus every day once environmental conditions improve.
Research supports that the optimal learning and social emotional environment for children in kindergarten through third grade is an in-person, on-campus experience. Grades K-3 will be on campus Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with remote Wednesdays featuring KIDS Praise and student learning activities! This will provide opportunity for additional cleaning in classrooms for grades K-3.
In grades 4-6, it is important to both the academic and social emotional wellbeing of our students that they are provided the opportunity to connect both with their peers and teachers. This will occur every day in a hybrid schedule model with students attending school in-person 2 days and remotely 3 days. Remote learning will be synchronous, with students and teachers connecting through Microsoft Teams.
We are so looking forward to having students back on campus! It Although it is not possible to have all students back currently, we are praying we will in the near future.
