As we begin to return some elementary and special education students to in-person learning beginning March 3, students will need to conduct daily health screenings before entering school. These health screenings, also known as attestations, can be done prior to leaving the house each morning using the Skyward Mobile Access app on your phone. Here's a video showing how to download and use the app each day prior to entering school. When the app is downloaded and set up on your phone, you'll only need three steps to complete the health screening each day:

· open the app,

· enter your pin number,

· complete/submit the two-question health screening. Here are directions for those who may need assistance with your Skyward Family Access login and password. Families who cannot use the app will be provided a paper version of the health screening upon arrival at school.

 

A medida que algunos estudiantes de primaria y de educación especial regresen al aprendizaje en persona a partir del 3 de Marzo, deberán realizar exámenes de salud diarios antes de ingresar a la escuela. Estos exámenes de salud, también conocidos como certificaciones, se pueden realizar antes de salir de la casa cada mañana utilizando la aplicación Skyward Acceso Móvil en su teléfono. Aquí hay un video que muestra cómo descargar y usar la aplicación todos los días antes de ingresar a la escuela. Cuando la aplicación se descarga y se configura en su teléfono, solo necesitará tres pasos para completar el examen de salud todos los días:

· abrir la aplicación,

· ingresar su número PIN,

· completar/enviar el examen de salud. Aquí hay instrucciones para aquellos que pueden necesitar ayuda con su nombre de usuario y contraseña de Skyward Acceso a la Familia. Las familias que no puedan usar la aplicación recibirán una versión impresa del examen de salud al llegar a la escuela.

Services for students during school closure

Following a new directive from Washington State Governor Jay Inslee, we will close all Renton School District schools beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 24. 

We're constantly updating our school closure/coronavirus webpage. Here are services for students/families during closure:

Meal Services
Beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020, meals will be available for any child, ages 1-18, in the front lot of each Renton School from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm daily during the school week. We are committed to providing access to meals to help ensure that all students’ nutritional needs are met during the closure. Meals are “grab and go” - Students will not stay on-site to eat; meals are intended to be taken off campus and can be picked up through car windows.

Additionally, meals will be available at the following locations daily from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm daily:

Learning During Closure
Renton Schools have provided resources for at-home learning during our closure. We are committed to providing equitable learning experiences for our students. These resources are intended to support skill maintenance and development. Paper copies were distributed to students at all schools on Friday, March 13 and directions posted on the district website page for students and families. Additional copies will be available at schools during meal service.

State Testing
The state's education office (OSPI) is cancelling all state testing for the 2019-2020 school year. This includes the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS), the Washington Access to Instruction and Measurement (WA-AIM), and WIDA Alternate ACCESS for English learners.

Childcare
We are working with our local partners and with the state education office (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction - OSPI), on clear guidance to provide childcare during the school closure. Details to follow.

Building, Field, Pool Use During Closure
Our schools, buildings, fields and pools remain closed to outside organized teams/groups through the end of March.

Kindergarten girl thumbs up

Registration for new kindergarten students began in January 2020. Parents of eligible students can visit their neighborhood school to pick-up a registration packet. A child must be five years old by August 31, 2020 to be eligible for kindergarten enrollment.

Parents can fill out the necessary paperwork and register their child now. Tours of schools and meetings with teachers will be conducted in mid-April during the “Ready for Kindergarten” events being held at each school where staff will share expectations for students as they enter kindergarten and provide families with some fun activities to help ensure that your child is prepared.

We offer free full‚Äźday Kindergarten programs in all our elementary schools. Kindergartners attend school on the same schedule as students in grades 1-5:

  • Core curriculum of reading; writing; mathematics; science; social studies; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); and additional experiences in art, music, PE
  • Transportation is provided to students on an established bus route
