IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 12
Dear Prosser Parents and Patrons, 
We have recently come to a decision about our return to traditional model of schooling. In order to ensure that parents have adequate time to prepare and to make sure that we meet all of the guidance as requested by our local health district, we will be transitioning back to school with the following schedule:
-Monday, April 12th: Half Day for Students in Hybrid A Designation 
-Tuesday, April 13th: Half Day for Students in Hybrid B Designation 
-Wednesday, April 14th: Full Day for All Students – Wednesday Schedule/1 Hour Early Release
-Thursday, April 15th: Full Day for All Students
-Friday, April 16th: Full Day for All Students
In transitioning to this model of learning, it is very important that all students and staff adhere to COVID protocols to ensure that campuses can remain open.   These protocols include: Mask wearing   You child’s masks can be removed for lunch while students are eating in designated areas but must be put back on once they have finished eating. Within classrooms, students are to maintain a 3-feet social distance.  Areas other than the classroom still require a 6-foot social distance. A daily wellness attestation must be completed prior to your child arriving on campus.  Over the next few days there will be more communication regarding specifics for each school site, which will come from your child’s principal. We are looking forward to welcoming all students back to our campuses. If you have specific questions, please contact your student’s principal.

Dear Prosser community, parents and students, 
On Thursday, March 25th, Governor Inslee announced that effective immediately, our state's physical distancing requirements for K-12 schools had been updated to align with the new Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance.  In addition, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) updated their guidance as well.  The new guidance allows for a physical distance of 3 feet within a classroom setting, while keeping the 6 foot physical distance mandate for areas outside of the classroom.  This includes common areas, such as lunchrooms, gyms, and other parts of the school facilities.  
In response to this updated guidance, the Prosser School District has begun the process to welcome students back on campus, full time, while ensuring the safety of both staff and students. 
The district is proactively engaging in the following actions:
· Planning with building administration to make the needed facility adjustments to ensure compliance with COVID capacity guidance
· Contacting families seeking input on their preferred instructional delivery model preference (in person or online)
· Collaborating with labor partners to update negotiated agreements
· Determining additional staffing needs 
· Ensuring safety protocols and PPE are aligned with new DOH guidance 
We have a tentative goal to expand our in-person offerings by mid-April, which will allow for appropriate planning, communication and transition for staff and families. 
The Prosser School District will still be offering an online only option as well for those families seeking to remain remote for the remainder of the school year. More information regarding this option will be available at a later date. 
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your patience as we have worked through an unprecedented year of school.  It is my hope that once we return to school fulltime, we will all feel a step closer to a new normal.   
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your student’s principal.

Sincerely,
Matt Ellis
