Dear Scholars and Parents,
Hello and welcome to Meredith Hill Elementary! Home of the Orca. I am honored to serve as the principal of a school with strong partnerships between parents and staff that support our scholars for their emotional and academic well being. I look forward to the partnerships with our parents, staff and scholars for the 21-22 school year.
At Meredith Hill we are focused on Goal 2: Whole Child, and Goal 4: Mastery of all subjects, of the Federal Way Strategic Plan. In support of Goal 2: Whole Child, we utilize Positive Intervention and Supports (PBIS), to foster a safe, respectful, responsible school climate. In support of Goal 4: Mastery of All Subjects, our staff is committed to work together collaboratively in Professional Learning Communities utilizing our Guaranteed Viable Curriculum to support each scholar to reach their highest potential.
Fall Re-Opening: Using guidance form 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 face to face instruction and masks will be required upon entry in the school. 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. Pleased feel free to contact us as we get closer to the Fall.
