COVID-19 Protocols

  • Masks

    In July, Gov. Inslee announced that all staff, students, and visitors will be required to wear masks/face coverings while indoors at schools, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings will not be required to be worn outdoors, regardless of vaccination status. The governor stated that his decision is due to the impacts of the COVID-19 Delta variant and increasing case counts, especially in school-aged children.   

    In addition to the governor’s announcement, the State Department of Health (DOH) released updated guidance for K-12 schools. Quarantine guidance has been updated to minimize quarantine requirements since students and staff will be wearing masks. You can review the updated guidance for K-12 schools at the Dept. of Health website HERE. 

    Mask Exemptions 

    If your student meets the face covering/mask exemption criteria as defined by the Secretary of Health’s Mask Order, families should fill out the district's Face Mask Exemption form. The form needs to be filled out by the student’s physician and submitted to the school for review.  

    Physical Distancing

    Classrooms have been arranged to maximize physical distancing between students, while still ensuring all children have access to a comprehensive, full-day experience. Students should attempt to maintain distancing to the greatest degree possible during passing time, while on the bus, while eating, and in common areas. Larger gatherings of students in one location (e.g. assemblies) will be moved outside or reduced in size to ensure a safe, socially distanced setting can be maintained.  

    Hand Washing & Hygiene 

    Teachers will communicate, educate, and reinforce appropriate hygiene, frequent handwashing and social distancing practices in ways that are developmentally appropriate for students. Hand sanitizer will be available if hand washing is not possible. 

    Health Screening 

    Students and staff must stay home when sick, or if they’ve been potentially exposed to COVID, or if they’re waiting for COVID test results. Students/families are expected to check for symptoms daily at home before coming to school. Parent Attestation forms are no longer required. 

    Cleaning Protocols

    Custodians will perform daily cleaning/sanitizing of bathrooms, fixtures, office counters, and entryway touch surfaces following the typical morning visitor traffic. Throughout the day, custodians will sanitize other identified/prioritized common touch surfaces such as door push plates, door handles, sinks, water fountains, hand railings, etc.  

    COVID Testing

    With parental consent, PSD can provide COVID testing for students and staff as part of our layered prevention and response strategy. Contact your school nurse for more information.  

    Vaccinations 

    Vaccinations continue to be an important weapon in the fight against COVID-19. The Pfizer vaccine is FDA-approved for everyone 16 years of age and older, and is authorized for emergency use for anyone 12-15 years old. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for everyone 18 years of age and older. Students are not required to get the COVID-19 vaccine to attend school in-person. However, vaccinated students will not have to quarantine if exposed to the virus unless they show symptoms. 

    Last week, Gov. Jay Inslee announced a new directive legally requiring all K–12 school district employees to get a COVID-19 vaccination or a medical or religious exemption by October 18.  

    This proclamation does not apply to students. The COVID-19 vaccine is not required for students. The proclamation also does not replace the requirement for all staff and students to wear masks or face coverings in schools and on school buses. 

Registration

  • In-Person Learning:

    If you are a new student, or are returning from another district, you can now register your student online.

    If you do not have access to a computer, please visit your child's school. School buildings will open the week of August 16.

    Virtual Learning:

    Pasco School District is excited to offer three virtual learning opportunities for students for the 2021-22 school year: The Pasco Parent Partnership (P³) program, iPAL (Internet Pasco Academy of Learning), and PIXeL (Pasco Innovative Experiences and e-Learning) Academy. 

    You can find more information about each program HERE: www.psd1.org/virtual

PowerSchool Accounts

  • PowerSchool is an online portal where parents can manage their child's meal account, review grades and attendance, set up notifications for school news and emergencies, update their student's information, and much more. Pasco School District's PowerSchool Parent Portal allows you to view multiple students with one PowerSchool Parent account – even if the students attend different schools!

    In order to create a new Parent Portal account, you will need an Access ID and Access Password for each of your students, which can be provided to you by your school's front office. Visit our PowerSchool page to learn more and to create your new account!

Health & Immunizations

  • Parents please check with health care providers to be sure your student is fully immunized and ready for school. Immunization boosters are typically required for entry into preschool, kindergarten and 6th grade. Also, if students have health conditions that require medication at school, care planning or accommodations, we encourage these families to contact your school’s nurse during the week before school starts. Students who have life threatening health conditions are required by Washington state law to meet with the nurse, have either medication or treatment order signed by health care provider and an emergency plan in place PRIOR to attending school. These families are encouraged to contact their school’s nurse as soon as possible the week before the first day of school. A reminder to parents: medication orders must be signed by both parent and health care provider and renewed every school year. Please download, print and fill out the medication administration permission form and return it to your child's school.

    You can find more information and other medical treatment related forms on our Health Services webpage.
