Cases of COVID-19 are on the rise again in King County after two months of decline: as of mid-October, there are 92 cases per 100,000 residents (see key indicators of COVID-19 activity). This rate places the county in the high-risk range for COVID-19 activity (75+ cases per 100,000 residents over a 2-week period) per the Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH) Decision Tree for the Provision of In-Person Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Given the current trajectory of the data, at this time it is unlikely that the Renton School District will offer an in-person Preschool through 5th grade hybrid model option before January 2021. The most likely scenario is that the vast majority of students will continue with remote learning through at least the end of December.

While an in-person hybrid option appears unlikely before the end of the calendar year (December), the Renton School District will continue to explore options for limited in-person learning for small groups and cohorts of students with the greatest needs (e.g., students with disabilities, youngest learners). This will be done in accordance with guidance from DOH.

Moving forward, we will monitor the data and work with Public Health to determine when we can have students return to pre-school and elementary school campuses in a hybrid model.
