  • Thanksgiving and Gratitude - Message from Dr. Spicciati 11/23/20

    We have a short week as we take a couple of days for Thanksgiving Break on Thursday and Friday. My list of things to be thankful for is very long, but right near the top is I am thankful for such a supportive community. These many months have been challenging, but as a community we have come together in so many ways. I am so fortunate to live and work here.

  • Message from Superintendent Spicciati 11/6/20

    Since September, we have strived to provide a high-quality education for all of our students. With the decision to remain in Distance Learning until at least January, we asked our stakeholders for input about the current Distance Learning program and schedule via a recent survey. Close to 2,000 parents, 1,700 students and 800 teachers provided their input.

    Thank you for your valuable input as we work towards gradually bringing our students back for in-person instruction. It is important that we hear from families and staff. We also continue to monitor the health data to aid in our planning. Several weeks ago, when the King and Pierce County infection rates were in the moderate range, we were cautiously optimistic we could begin to bring students back. Unfortunately, the infection rates are climbing and not in the moderate range. Auburn's infection rate is double the King County infection rate. We cannot bring students and staff back in-person while the infection rates are climbing. We are using the Department of Health Decision Tree and following the public health data to aid in our decision making. Here is a link to the sources we are monitoring.

    As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the district is planning for our gradual return to in-person instruction. King County infection rates continue to be in the moderate range and per Public Health-Seattle & King County (PHSKC), we can start bringing the youngest learners back in the coming weeks and then gradually return all students to a hybrid model of in-person instruction.

  • 08/21/20: Elementary PM Program Announcement

    As we’ve communicated with families this August about our distance learning program, we heard the request from some families for an evening option due to the complications they anticipate having with supporting their children in the distance learning model during the school day. In response, we are designing an Elementary PM Program for grades K-5.
