Welcome to Sherwood Forest Elementary!
I am excited to be part of a wonderful and caring community. I look forward to collaborating with each of you as we work together to meet the needs of our student scholars. Our staff will continue to focus on providing the highest quality education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. I understand the commitment that it takes for all students to achieve their very best. I believe that every child can succeed if provided the right supports and opportunities.
We will work hard to maintain a strong two-way partnership with you and look forward to hearing from you about how we can best meet the needs of your child. In order to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school, be sure to look for the Sherwood Forest “Communication Folder” which goes home with students every Thursday afternoon. Students are asked to take the folder home, request a parent signature on the folder, and return it to school the next day.
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 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.
It is my honor to educate your child each and every day. I look forward to working closely with you to make Sherwood Forest the best educational experience possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out in any way.
