Planning for Potential Temporary Classroom or School Closures

We are experiencing a significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases and absences which are causing serious staff shortages in our schools and district operations. The state Department of Health anticipates the region will reach a peak in COVID-19 cases over the next few weeks, which we expect to continue impacting district staffing.

The school district is not planning on a districtwide shift to virtual/remote learning from home at this time. However, we are preparing for the possibility of temporarily shifting classrooms or schools to virtual/remote learning if we experience significant staff shortages that cannot be covered with current district staff.  

What does this mean for your student? 

If your student’s classroom or school temporarily shifts to virtual/remote learning, we will inform you immediately.

  • Virtual/remote learning: Your school will communicate with you directly about your student’s school schedule. Students will use their district-issued laptop/tablet to access their classroom teams.
  • Technology: It is important for your secondary student to bring their district-issued laptop/tablet home with them each evening. At the elementary level, your student’s school will send your student’s device home with them if possible or allow a day for device pick up.

Full In-Person Learning Five Days a Week for 2021-22 School Year

Clover Park School District has returned to 5 full days of in-person instruction in our schools for grades K-12 this fall. Safety protocols will be followed in alignment with guidance from Washington State Department of Health and Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. 

Virtual Learning Option Available 

The district provides a virtual learning option for elementary and secondary students whose families have decided to not send their child back to school full-time in person.  CPSD will use state approved online Alternative Learning Education (ALE) providers:  

  • Grades K-5: Pearson 
  • Grades 6-12: Graduation Alliance   

Key information to know as you make this decision on whether your child will participate in in-person learning or enroll in virtual learning for the 2021-22 school year:  

  • Your student will be enrolled for the FULL SCHOOL YEAR in this ALE program.   
  • This program is separate from the school district, so you will not have a classroom teacher(s) from your neighborhood school.  
  • Your student will continue to have access to resources and supports currently provided through the school district.   

Interested families please contact Roz Smith at 253-682-7847.
