In alignment with new DOH requirements, school COVID notifications will only be sent to staff and any student who has been identified as immunocompromised, medically fragile, or otherwise at high risk for severe COVID-19 complications.
In addition to the lifting of the mask mandate, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) released updated K-12 guidance earlier this week, and the information is outlined here.
In alignment with the statewide lifting of the mask mandate and in agreement with our labor unions, wearing masks will be optional in all Monroe School District schools and on buses beginning Monday, March 14th.
Both the Department of Health (DOH) and the Snohomish Health District recently made changes to the isolation and quarantine requirements for COVID-19 in K-12 settings and Monroe School District has adopted these changes.
With the evolving situation regarding the COVID Omicron variant, I wanted to update you on some important changes in COVID guidance from the Department of Health (DOH) and to prepare you in case a classroom or school needs to be closed due to COVID cases or staff absences due to illness.
Beginning October 12, 2021, Monroe School District will begin offering optional COVID-19 testing for free, Monday - Friday at the district administration office from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for students and their families.
Updated information on quarantine duration for close contacts, knowing when it's okay for students to return to school, and where to get tested for COVID-19.
Health and safety reminders and updates for families so that we may continue to keep one another healthy.
