Garfield - Palouse Reopening Plans

SCHOOL REOPENING UPDATE                                 (8-1-2020)


On 7-30-2020 the Boards adopted a School Reopening Plan that starts school in person on August 26th! This is an initial Plan to get students back in school, but will need to be revised & adjusted as new information, guidance from the state and the Covid situation continues to develop.

This initial Plan will be shared in the near future as will additional detailed information concerning the various adjustments needed (entry/exit areas, health checks, mask, sanitation, school day schedule, buses, food service etc.)  for the successful and safe opening of our school during this difficult time.  We can share that mask and 6’ spacing will be required.   

Please understand that there are no guarantees with this situation and these plans could change at a moment’s notice so please check this site regularly.  We ask for your understanding and support in this effort to keep each other healthy and adjust to the numerous challenges this situation has brought on us all.
