This letter was sent to families with children in the Shoreline School District

Dear Shoreline Schools Families and Staff,

I hope this email finds you and your family staying healthy and doing well.

I want to take a moment to provide an update regarding our preparations for the upcoming school year, as well as a few other updates and reminders.

I know many of you have questions and wonderings about what school will look like next school year. While we don’t have details to share quite yet, I want to let you know that preparations are under way at our state and local levels to prepare for a variety of different scenarios and restrictions we may face.

At the state-level, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has convened a workgroup to:
  • Identify and refine possible school reopening strategies and models.
  • Inform the OSPI recommendations to the Governor in collaboration with Department of Health to provide guidance to school districts.

Shoreline is fortunate to have two representatives serving on this important stakeholder committee. Shoreline Education Association President Matt Reiman and I are both members of the workgroup. 

You can learn more about this workgroup and the information we are reviewing HERE. While I don’t know yet what the recommendations will be or what we will be allowed to do, our leadership team is beginning to prepare for a range of options.

As part of this process, we will be sending a survey to families and staff within the next few weeks to help inform our plans at the local level. We hope that you will take a few minutes to provide us with your feedback and perspectives when you receive the survey.

We know families and staff need to know the details of our reopening plan as soon as possible in order to make their own plans. 

While we are planning for many scenarios, we will not have more information on what options will be available to us until mid-June at the earliest. We will share more detailed information as soon as we are able.

I know that these are trying and challenging times, but I have been incredibly inspired by so many in our schools and community who give of themselves to support their friends, family and neighbors. 

I want to thank each of you for the role you play in our schools and community. Shoreline is a special place and the generosity and resilience that has been on constant display by so many since this crisis began is a testament to our incredible community.

I hope that each of you has a relaxing Memorial Day weekend and are able to take time to honor and remember those members of the United States military who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Rebecca Miner
