Today we received communication from the Thurston County Health Officer, Dr. Abdelmalek, concerning the upward trend of COVID-19 transmission rates.
Dr. Abdelmalek is recommending that we remain in our current footing (in-person/distance hybrid) until November 6th at which time she will provide further advisory. If transmission rates remain above 75 cases per 100,000 population over 14 days for a majority of the next week, she will recommend a return to distance learning for all students.
I want our families to have as much advance notice of the possibility of closure as possible, so that we can all plan accordingly. We will share any future communications with you immediately.
You will find Dr. Abdelmalek’s full letter by clicking here.
I want to thank each and every one of you for the understanding and flexibility you have employed during this unprecedented time. It is because of this collective focus on our students’ wellbeing, that JPII continues to thrive.
Mrs. Therese Allin
Provisional President and Principal
