See below for information related to our extended closure:
This page will be updated as we learn more about the closure, and compile more resources for families. This page was last updated updated on 04/05/20
Duration of the closure (UPDATED 04/02/20) - With the Governor's updated Stay at Home order, SIA will remain closed through at least May 4th, 2020. We will continue to update this date as new information becomes available.
Breakfast/Lunch Service for Students (UPDATED 04/01/20) - In order to protect our employees and all of our families, we will be making changes to the way we distribute meals for the remainder of the school closure starting Monday, April 6th.

The first change is that we will only have 2 pick up days - Monday and Thursday. Monday you will be given 3 days of breakfast and lunch for each child and Thursday you will receive 2 days of breakfast and lunch for each child.

The other change is that your children do not have to be present in order to pick up meals if you pre-order the meals through this form. A new form will be released each Friday morning and must be completed by Saturday night at midnight for the following week. If you do not fill out this pre-order form, your children must be present. However, we ask you to please fill out this form so we can plan accordingly.

Lastly, we will be shortening the pick up times to 11-12:30pm on Monday and Thursday.  

Hopefully these changes will allow more families to access this service due to the decreased number of times you have to visit the school each week. See below for the form.

Childcare - SIA will be offering a limited childcare service to students in Kindergarten-5th grade whose families serve our community as first responders or medical professionals. This service will begin on Monday, March 23. Due to the restrictions on group sizes that can meet, we will be limiting this to 25 students max
Academic Services - SIA, like most districts across the state, not be attempting to conduct normal school programs via an online environment. We will instead have teachers compile learning resources that can be done while away from school. Districts have been advised by OSPI not to provide online mandatory learning for our students because they are unable to truly demonstrate equal opportunity to access the learning. The resources our teachers provide will be highly recommended to help keep skills fresh and minds active, but are not required. We truly hope our SIA families will take advantage of as much of these as possible.
State testing - Washington state will not administer SBAC or WCAS state testing in grades 3-8 during the 2019-20 school year.
Students with IEPs - The special education staff at each school will be in contact with students who receive specially designed instruction. Due to guidance received from OSPI, SIA will not be servicing IEPs during the closure. Some related services may continue, but not full IEPs/504 plans. For more information please email Mrs. Pariseau, SIA Director of Special Services.
