Learning Model Status

Monroe School District began the 2020-21 school year with 100% distance learning and plans to follow a staged approach to reopening. In alignment with the Washington State Department of Health's Decision Tree for the Provision of In-Person Learning and guidance from the Snohomish County Health District, our preschool, kindergarten, and small groups of students with the highest needs returned for in-person learning in mid-October.

While the number of COVID-19 cases has recently risen in our county, the guidance from local health officials has not changed in the weeks since these students returned to school.  Limited in-person learning is still recommended for students in grades K-3 and those with the highest needs. 

Next Steps

Because we know that the best learning environment for students is in our school buildings, we are welcoming students back in small increments with extreme caution. The health, safety, and well-being of our school community remains our number one priority. We will continue to follow sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect the health of our students and staff (our safety plan can be viewed here).

Our staged reopening plan can be found below. Movement between the various stages will be determined by the impacts of a changing COVID-19 pandemic, available resources, direction from Snohomish Health District, OSPI, and Governor Inslee. Having the flexibility to move to different models will enable us to provide the best education possible in whatever scenario presents itself.
