Principal's Message

  • Angie EllenbeckerDear Adelaide Families,

    We are so excited to see our scholars return to Adelaide! As we return to school on January 3rd we will be reteaching scholars' Adelaide Expectations. Scholars will be reminded of what it means to be Safe, Caring, and Accountable in all areas of the school. As partners in your scholar’s education it takes all of us working together to ensure a safe and healthy return from winter break. Here are a few ways our staff, families, and students can help support the health and safety of students and staff in our schools:

    • You can review the latest health and safety protocols in place in Federal Way Public Schools on our website:

    • As a reminder, vaccines are now available for ages 5 and up and boosters are also available for individuals ages 16 and older. There is a mobile vaccine clinic hosted by Public Health – Seattle and King County coming up on January 2, 2022 at Federal Way High School. More information about vaccine opportunities is available at

    • Get a free COVID-19 test before returning to school on January 3. There are two Curative mobile testing sites in Federal Way Public Schools: one at the Educational Service Center, and one in the Sacajawea Middle School parking lot. Visit for more information or to schedule an appointment. More information about testing sites at

    • Follow all health and safety protocols in our schools, including the continued expectation that students wear a mask at all times while at school. As a reminder, the proper and daily wearing of a mask is an expectation.

    • Talk to your child(ren) about the importance of following all health and safety protocols in our schools. You can view these at

    • Complete the consent form for your child to participate in the Test to Stay program at school. More information is available at

    • If you or your student is experiencing COVID symptoms, please stay home, get tested and contact your child’s school. As we have throughout the pandemic, FWPS will continue to follow the guidance provided by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and Public Health – Seattle and King County (PHSKC) in order to make decisions that support the health and safety of our students, families, and staff. We will continue to monitor the potential impacts of the Omicron variant on our operations and currently have no indication that DOH, PHSKC, or OSPI will require remote learning at this time. However, we have proactively prepared for this possibility, so we are ready, should we have to transition to temporary remote learning in the future and will directly partner with you should the need arise.

    We appreciate your partnership in keeping everyone healthy and safe as we start 2022. Happy New Year!
