Recommended Prevention Measures

The Department of Health advises school districts to take the same preventative measures it normally would to prevent the spread of viruses during the regular cold and flu season. Common preventative measures recommended for students include:

  • Staying home when they are sick and/or running a fever.
  • Frequent hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after they blow their nose. If hands are visibly dirty, use soap and water to clean hands.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Advising persons to avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Covering coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash and cleaning hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer (if soap and water are not readily available).
  • Urging students and staff to get a flu shot during the flu season.
  • Providing adequate supplies for good hygiene, including clean and functional hand-washing stations, soap, paper towels, and alcohol‐based hand sanitizer.

Superintendent Message

IMG 5023

On Monday, April 6, 2020 Governor Inslee announced that all K-12 schools in Washington would remain closed through the end of the school year.  Washington joins 15 additional states that have already declared a closure of in-person educational services for the remainder of the school year.  

Touchet School District will continue our continuous learning through the end of the school year in June. Weekly online lessons will resume on Monday, April 13, following spring break. Student can continue to work on their lessons during this time. 

For Seniors – Class of 2020

We anticipate additional guidance from the State Board of Education on graduation requirements very soon. If you are a senior in good standing, we expect you will receive your diploma this year. Please continue to engage in the online lessons for your 2nd semester courses as we finalize learning plans for seniors. We expect to have additional information for seniors and their families in the coming weeks. It will be important that students continue to check in with their teachers on a regular basis for new information and updates. 

We appreciate your patience and partnership during this difficult time. Though the journey ahead may be unknown, we will continue to focus on providing the best service we can for our community.
