Mukilteo Elementary Falcon Spirit September 25, 2020

Thank you to all of our families who attended our Virtual Curriculum Night last night. It was great to "see" everyone in our Zoom calls and connect with our families!

School Supply Pickup - Wednesday, September 30

We will be holding another supply pickup on Wednesday, September 30!

An email went out to families this morning with your scheduled time.

Please come at your scheduled time in order to follow social distancing guidance.

Please note - not all the classes are handing out supplies at this time. If you have a student in Green, Greer, Idso or Wolfe, you will not receive an email.

If you are unsure of your scheduled time, please contact the Main Office.

RETURN TO SCHOOL UPDATE

In a family message on Sept. 24, Superintendent Brynelson shared a video explaining the district's early plan to re-open schools for in-person learning, starting with students in preschool through second grade on Oct. 26.

We plan to wait at least three weeks before bringing back students in grades three through five. We will likely bring middle school students back in December or early January in a hybrid model with high school students to follow at the start of second semester in late January, also in a hybrid model.

This plan is tentative and may change depending on how many families want their children to return to in-person instruction, and the status of the COVID-19 cases in our county. As promised, families may choose to remain in distance learning.

Video transcripts: English | Russian | Spanish | Vietnamese

ELEMENTARY SURVEY

To plan further, we must know how many students plan to return, need transportation, meals, etc. The responses we receive from families will drive critical decisions about staffing, schedules, class placement, space availability, etc. Please complete the brief elementary student questionnaire by Friday, Oct. 2.
