Specialized FAQs for 2021-2022

We would like to address questions you may have regarding how school will look for the 2021-2022 year.  Please read on to find answers to the questions we've been asked.
What will our hybrid learning model look like?

Please contact our registrar for additional information about how our hybrid classes will look for the 2021-2022 school year.  We sincerely hope we will be able to return to full in-person learning in the fall.  We know this is an ever-evolving situation and we will adapt our programs as needed.  We are actively making plans for in-person classes, as well as contingency plans in the event that we will need to start the year in a hybrid model.

If you are interested in a virtual-only option for the 2021-2022 school year, please contact our registrar for additional information.

What measures are you taking for health and safety?

For in-person classes and events, we will be implementing the following measures:

  • Temperature checks and health screenings/attestations upon arrival to class every time we meet

  • Increased sanitation of shared supplies, high touch surfaces, and bathrooms

  • Social distancing practices

  • No snack time during class. Children will only be able to drink from their water bottle brought from home.

  • Masks will be required for adults and children. Masks are not recommended for children under the age of 2 years by King County Public Health.

  • Sanitizing wipes and soap/water readily available for parents and teacher for every class.

  • Only enrolled parents and children (no visitors or guests) will be allowed to attend in-person classes

What are the parent's responsibilities/commitments to the school?

Parents are required to work in the classroom one class per week, attend a parent education meeting once a month and participate in fundraisers for the school.  We have re-evaluated our needs for parent participation on committees and are changing our focus to the Board of Trustees.  We are requiring parents to serve on either on the Safety/Admin committee or the Board of Trustees.


Due to the pandemic, we are also requiring the following family participation: 

  • Indoor cleaning and sanitizing

    • Includes toys

  • Outdoor cleaning and maintenance

This will be done on a rotating basis to ensure we are meeting the State Dept. of Health standards.
