Mandatory Health Requirements for Reopening

  • According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "International experiences have demonstrated that even when a school carefully coordinates, plans, and prepares, cases may still occur within the community and schools. Expecting and planning for the occurrence of cases of COVID-19 in communities can help everyone be prepared for when a case or multiple cases are identified."

    The Kent School District Back to School Task Force and Kent School District have prepared the following plans to meet the mandatory health requirements for reopening our schools for the 2020-21 school year in alignment with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) guidance.

    KSD will continue to work in partnership with local and state health authorities, OSPI, and the Office of the Governor as we continue into the 2020–2021 school year to monitor the situation and update our responses as appropriate.
