VASHON ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT TO PROVIDE SERVICES DURING TEMPORARY CLOSURE

March 12th, 2020 - Posted in Alerts

Here are specific services VISD will provide during the school closure:

Food Services: VISD is prepared to provide food services beginning Monday the 16th as a “Grab ‘n’ Go” lunch. “Grab ‘n’ Go” meals will be provided to ANY VISD student.

Targeted delivery services are part of this planning.

Child Care: VISD is setting a goal to provide limited child care services by Wednesday the 18th. Our primary goal is to provide services for families who work in the health care services as well as for families who qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. VISD understands that we must play our part in keeping our families who work in health care services available to help those in the most need. Once we are able to provide services for these two groups of families, we will be considering expanding the program to assist other families. It is important to note that we will be working from Public Health guidance and implementing Social Distancing practices as well as enhanced sanitation practices.

Supplemental Learning Activities: VISD is working with staff to coordinate the delivery of supplemental learning activities by Wednesday the 18th or earlier. We will be able to provide laptop devices to those students who will require a device. These supplemental learning activities will be optional and not graded which differentiates them from direct or online instruction. Given more time and opportunities for innovation, these services may evolve and expand. LINK programs can be operated remotely and we do not anticipate any major disruption of LINK services or their student’s instructional program. LINK programs will not be able to accomodate any new students.
