Letter from the Principal
October 22, 2021
Dear North Beach Families:
Yesterday we participated in the annual Great ShakeOut earthquake preparedness day. We held an evacuation drill and followed it with going over how to respond if there is an earthquake while school is in session with students. The students did an excellent job with the evacuation drill. After last month’s actual fire alarm incident and our unexpected evacuation, we determined some areas we needed to improve on. Today the teachers and students showed they are well prepared in the event we have another incident necessitating building evacuation.
This week we also implemented our indoor lunch eating plan because of inclement weather. The students did an excellent job following directions to maintain safety while eating inside.
There have been some changes to how covid symptoms are being treated. These new charts/protocols are giving us a bit more flexibility. https://www.doh.wa.gov/Portals/1/Documents/1600/coronavirus/820-229-SymptomDecisionTreeCTChecklistSchools.pdf https://www.seattleschools.org/news/covid-19-symptoms/
Good news! We are now set up to monitor Covid testing at school. To give you a little insight, we won’t actually be giving the tests. We are here as monitors and information gatherers. The students/parents which actually be doing the swabbing and we will collect the samples and send them to the labs. We still don’t know exactly how long these results will take to obtain so we highly recommend those who can, continue to either go to area test sights for free testing, or do the home tests.
Finally, we’ve learned that bus Route 726 should be reinstated within the next week. Families should be receiving communication soon regarding when the route will be started up again.
There were no COVID-19 notification letters sent out this week.
Have a wonderful weekend!
