Principal's Message

  • Principal Rennie Greetings Star Lake Families,

    I hope this message finds you healthy and happy and enjoying the sunshine!  It was great to see so many families waving to staff when we had our end of school parade and during student item pick up days at school.  At this time, I would like to share a few important district updates with you.

    Summer Learning:  This year, FWPS is providing essential summer learning for all scholars. Engaging in learning throughout the summer months will support your scholar in being prepared for when we return to school. We ask that you set aside 90 minutes a day if your child is in grade K-5 and 110 minutes a day for grade 6-12. A daily schedule and free online resources have been posted to the FWPS website at  https://www.fwps.org/summerlearning. We will also be mailing home learning packets to all scholars who were in K-11th grade last year.  Packets should be arriving in your mailbox the week of July 6.  We are also really excited to share a new experience geared toward our youngest of learners.  Tune into FW Channel 21 Monday-Friday from July 6-August 7 each day between 9-5  to see amazing 20-minute reading and math lessons. There will even be math lessons taught in Spanish each hour.  These lessons will give the opportunity for your child to learn and grow throughout the month and will be posted to our FWPS youtube channel as well.

    Fall Re-Opening: Using guidance from the State and the DOH, we are planning for a safe return that prioritizes learning. What we know is that we will begin the year with a hybrid model (some face to face instruction and some remote instruction). At this time, FWPS is exploring several hybrid models that provides a combination of face to face instruction and remote learning. We have received input from parents and guardians, scholar and staff. The early results reveal the Pre-K-12 two day face-to-face and 3 day remote model is the most desired option. Please stay tuned for more information to come in the coming weeks.

    Health and Safety and Re-Opening: Health and safety are a priority.  As we prepare for our Fall Re-opening, we are using the guidance from the Department of Health and OSPI.  Our district is hard at work developing health and safety protocols with social distancing guidelines, arranging schedules that minimize contact, considering bus transportation and engaging in deep cleaning protocols to minimize the spread of germs.  As part of ensuring a safe learning environment, students will be required to wear face masks.  Please take the time this summer to both reinforce and practice the wearing of face masks. We will continue to place health and safety as a priority as we look toward the Fall.As always, I will provide you with new and updated information via email, call outs and on our website. In addition, please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have at krennie@fwps.org. I look forward to seeing you all soon!

    Best Regards,

    Kris Rennie, Principal
