As of noon today Washington County has been updated to a Yellow COVID-19 status. As a result, all students K-12 must begin to engage in a fully hybrid learning model. Teachers have assigned all students to in-person learning on either Monday / Tuesday or Thursday / Friday. All students should continue to engage in learning remotely when they are not in-person. We have been contacting parents since 1230p today. If you have not been contacted yet or need clarification on your child's new assignment please contact the school 207/546-2430.
