    Illahee Families,


    Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year! On behalf of the staff at Illahee, we are SO EXCITED to welcome back our scholars to full in-person learning in just over 2 weeks! We are working hard to prepare for this much anticipated return to school and I know everyone has questions about how school will work as we near September 1st!


    Fall Re-Opening: Using guidance from OSPI and the Department of Health, we are planning for a safe return that prioritizes learning.  In accordance with Gov. Inslee and OSPI direction, we will be opening the year with full face to face instruction.  Please stay tuned for more information to come in the coming weeks. Health and Safety and Re-Opening:  Our scholars’  health and safety are priority. As we prepare for our face to face fall re-opening, our district is hard at work developing health and safety protocols which include social distancing guidelines, arranging schedules that minimize high traffic contact, considering bus transportation and engaging in deep cleaning protocols to minimize the spread of germs. As part of ensuring a safe learning environment, all scholars and staff will be required to wear face masks. Please take the time this summer to both reinforce and practice the wearing of face masks.  FWPS will continue to place health and safety as a priority as we look forward to welcoming our scholars back on September 1st. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 


    You can anticipate weekly communication in the coming weeks as we send out the most important information about the start of our school year. Stay tuned to your email and watch for automated calls that will indicate to you that more information is in your email. If you are not receiving email updates from our school, please check that your most current email address is in ParentVue. If you need any help with this, please call our Main Office.


    I look forward to connecting with you over the next couple of weeks as we gear up for what will be an incredible school year!


    In Partnership,


    Brianna Ward

    Proud Principal
