District Headlines & Features
Dear Federal Way Public Schools Parents, Guardians, and Community,
As we navigate this uncharted territory, this can be a stressful time for our students and families. Know that our focus is, and always will be, on supporting each and every scholar in this district.
Based on the governor’s proclamation, and the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, FWPS is closed from Monday, March 16 to Friday, April 24, 2020. This is to help “flatten the curve” of the rate of infection. Without these restrictions, the rate of infection would overwhelm the health care system.
Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Federal Way Public Schools is closed to the public. This means all school sites and central office buildings are closed. We know this closure will have an impact on our students, staff, families and community. Our team has prepared a long-term closure plan to mitigate this impact as much as possible. More information, including details about meals, childcare, learning from home, and more are included on our website.
We know there are many questions, and we will be spending the next days and weeks to respond to many of these questions. We are actively working with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to understand how this extended closure may impact the school year calendar, graduation, and more.
We will continue to be proactive in communicating with parents, families and the community. Updates will be provided in multiple ways including on our website, Facebook and Twitter at @FWPS210, and our new e-newsletter.
If you have questions, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While social distancing may make us feel isolated and alone, we are in this together. I hope you find inspiration in this quote I recently found online, “Be strong now, because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it never rains forever.”
In partnership, Dr. Tammy Campbell, Superintendent
