Elma School District recognizes that conditions related to COVID-19 in our community continue to evolve based upon changes in community transmission rates, availability of testing, new and emerging research, and current/anticipated treatment and prevention options. As a result, our plan to reopen schools for 2020-2021 will need to be flexible and responsive to these changing conditions.


The determination of the education delivery model will be based on the current COVID-19 conditions as directed by the Governor’s Office, the Washington Department of Health decision tree, and/or Grays Harbor Public Health Department. The metrics for school operations created by the Washington State Department of Health on August 5, 2020 regarding community spread will be the threshold for each level of education delivery. The Elma Board of Directors will review the Elma School District Reopening Plan monthly at the first schedule board meeting of each month. Data will be reviewed to determine if there is a stage that can be taken towards in-person instruction. There may also be smaller adjustments made to accommodate the changing needs of our students. If there is a possibility any changes to instruction will take effect the first Monday of the following month. The board will continue the process of reviewing data and taking next steps in our stages, as it can be safely completed. The decision will be made within the parameters determined by state guidelines, legal ramifications and student equity issues.

We continue to make plans for the 2020-21 school year. Updates and current plans can be viewed by clicking the links on the left.
