Superintendent's Message

Hello Families,

Thank you for your continued support of your student as we continue to rise to meet the challenges of the pandemic. We have been continuing to work towards being able to bring back more students for in-person school. As the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, the number of new cases in Grays Harbor County must decrease from current levels to bring more students into our buildings.

Our current new case rate in Grays Harbor is 161.8 per 100,000 residents. You may recall that the categories pertaining to schools are 0 to 25- low transmission rate, 25 to 50- moderate transmission and over 75 cases per 100,000 is a high transmission rate. By comparison, Thurston County is at a rate of 18.2 per 100,000. 

Please be aware that even as our staff works to bring you the best learning experience we can create remotely, we want your student in school. With new case rates at their current level, we must continue to have most of our instruction happen remotely.

You may recall from the video recorded 10 days ago, that we are acquiring hotspots for those families without internet access. As we continue to determine the logistics for setting up this capability, those who have no access to our online instruction may reach out to elma.info.covid19@eagles.edu to ensure we are aware of your lack of access.

We are aware of how difficult this is to continue. We will continue to do all we can to ease those difficulties, but the reality is that pulling together is the only way for us to make things the best they can be for our families, students, and community. 

I continue to be amazed and gratified at the efforts of our staff to support and provide learning opportunities for our students.

Thank you for your continued support and hopeful perspective,

Take care,

 Kevin

Hola Familias

Gracias por su continuo apoyo a su estudiante mientras continuamos levantándonos para enfrentar los desafíos de la pandemia. Continuamos trabajando para poder traer más estudiantes a la escuela en persona. Como la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal es nuestra principal prioridad, debemos tener nuevos números de casos que nos permitan seguir teniendo más estudiantes en el edificio.

Nuestra tasa actual de casos nuevos en Grays Harbor es de 161,8 por cada 100.000 habitantes. Tal vez recuerde que las categorías correspondientes a las escuelas son de 0 a 25 - tasa de transmisión baja, 25 a 50 - transmisión moderada y más de 75 casos por 100.000 es una tasa de transmisión alta. En comparación, el condado de Thurston tiene una tasa de 18,2 por 100.000.

Tenga en cuenta que aunque nuestro personal trabaja para brindarle la mejor experiencia de aprendizaje que podemos crear de forma remota, queremos que su estudiante esté en la escuela. Con las nuevas tasas de casos en su nivel actual, debemos continuar haciendo que la mayor parte de nuestra instrucción se realice de forma remota.

Tal vez recuerde en el video grabado hace 10 días que estamos adquiriendo puntos de acceso para aquellas familias que no tienen acceso a Internet. A medida que continuamos determinando la logística para configurar esta capacidad, aquellos que no tienen acceso a nuestra instrucción en línea pueden comunicarse con elma.info.covid19@eagles.edu para asegurarse de que estamos al tanto de su falta de acceso.

Somos conscientes de lo difícil que es continuar. Continuaremos haciendo todo lo posible para aliviar esas dificultades, pero la realidad es que unirnos es la única manera de hacer las cosas lo mejor posible para nuestras familias, estudiantes y comunidad.

Sigo asombrado y gratificado por los esfuerzos de nuestro personal para apoyar y brindar oportunidades de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes.

Gracias por su continuo apoyo y perspectiva esperanzadora.

Cuídate,

Kevin
