Arlington Public Schools to continue with limited in-person learning
On Tuesday, Oct. 20, Dr. Spitters from the Snohomish Health District provided Snohomish County School Superintendents with an update on COVID-19 numbers in the county.

Dr. Spitters shared the following recommendations for schools:

• Continued distance learning is still strongly recommended, with limited in-person learning for younger learners (especially K-3) and high need students (e.g., disabilities, homelessness, farthest from educational justice).
• In-person learning for older students is discouraged, except high need students, particularly at the current level and trajectory of COVID-19 activity in the community.
• Strongly recommend canceling or postponing most in-person extracurricular activities, including sports, performances, clubs, events, and such, with the option to allow extracurricular activities in small groups of six or fewer students.

What this means for Arlington students is that we will continue to have kindergartners and first graders on campus in a hybrid model. Certain high needs students needing in-person services as well as students in connectivity stations will continue to be on our school campuses in limited numbers.

We continue to evaluate when the time will be appropriate to bring other groups of students back on campus in a hybrid model. There is not one factor that determines whether we open or close schools. District leaders rely on multiple factors and input from many agencies to help make this decision.

We continue to follow recommended health protocols in our schools to keep students and staff safe.
