    Viking Families,

    We are excited to be opening our doors to in person learning for K-2 students in little over a week - with grades 3-5 students shortly thereafter. Thank you to all our families for your quick response to the survey. We have been hard at work in creating the exact number of classrooms we need to honor each family's selection for either in person or distance learning. For those who are still trying to make their learning model decision, check out these FAQs on topics including instruction, health and operations.  

    This letter is to help you know what you can expect in the upcoming week. 

    On Tuesday January 12, families of K-5 students can expect to receive a message indicating whether their student is on the hybrid A schedule, the hybrid B schedule, or in full time distance learning.

    • Hybrid A students attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    • Hybrid B students attend school on Wednesdays and Fridays.

    When students resume in person learning, elementary schools will be operating on regularly scheduled hours. Bonney Lake Elementary operating hours are 9:00 am - 3:45 pm. More information will be coming next week in regards to drop off and pick up expectations as well as bus transportation details. 

    Please note that students who are served in the Links programs will receive specific information on their school schedule from Special Services next week. 

    As we have built new schedules to accommodate both in person and distance learning, some classroom rosters have changed.  Families of students who have a new teacher assigned to them will be informed of their new teacher via phone call from their current teacher. Our goal is to have all calls completed by Thursday, January 14th by 4:15pm.

    Both in person and distance learning students who have a new teacher will be able to meet them through an individual or group Zoom session on Friday, January 15th. Students and families should look for an invitation for this meeting from their new teacher. Teachers are excited to welcome their new students. In addition, teachers are planning activities to welcome all students to their new learning environment.

    Thursday January 14 and Friday January 15:

    Students will receive asynchronous work for both Thursday Jan. 14 and Friday Jan. 15 as teachers prepare for the transition to hybrid in person learning. There will be no live Zoom sessions on either day. Students will be able to find asynchronous lessons and practice materials in their current Google Classroom account. During this time, schools will also ensure all final details for student arrival are ready. Students who receive Special Education services will also be provided asynchronous work. 

    Upcoming Dates and Activities:

    Mon Jan. 18 - No school: Martin Luther King Jr. Day 

    Tues Jan. 19 -

    • New class rosters will be in effect K-5 (Hybrid and Distance Learning)

    • First day for K-2 in person learning (Hybrid A)

    • First day for K-5 Distance Learning (for students staying in Distance Learning)

    Wed Jan. 20:

    • First day for K-2 in person learning (Hybrid B)

    Tues Feb. 2:

    • First day for 3-5 in person learning (Hybrid A)

    Wed Feb. 3:

    You will be receiving my monthly principal newsletter on Monday, January 11th.  Please take the time to read it carefully and watch the videos.  We are here to help you navigate these changes.  Don’t hesitate to call our office.
