Port Angeles School District Closure

Dear PASD Families,

This will be the first of several communications over the coming days based on the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation.

This afternoon, Governor Inslee announced his Executive Order to close all schools from March 17 through April 24. This means all Port Angeles School District schools will be open and operating on a regular schedule Monday, March 16th and then closed thereafter.

We know this raises all kinds of questions and implications including childcare needs for our staff and families, school meals, graduation, and much more. We are working on plans to address a range of impacts, and we will be in constant communication as we work through these issues.

We will be planning for an alternative model with the following services:

  • Available childcare during school hours for families who serve in critical community roles such as healthcare and first responders.
  • Available meals for children provided at school sites – details to follow.
  • Available educational resources with supports for at-home learning.

We recognize this closure creates many different challenges, and our goal is to provide basic services to continue supporting our families and our community. We will continue to provide updated information over the next several days, and we would ask for your patience in submitting any questions or concerns.
