School Closure Resources

School Closure Resources

Clover Park School District facilities are closed to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19, but learning will continue through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. This district is committed to continuing to partner with families and community to support our students’ learning while they are at home.

Continuous Learning

Governor Inslee has closed all school facilities to on-site education; however, learning is continuing for students. Clover Park School District is implementing a continuous learning plan to support students for the remainder of the school year.

Student instruction will launch Monday, April 27.

Student learning for students in grades K-8 will include a combination of weekly learning packets and online learning with their classroom teacher.

Fourth quarter begins Monday, April 27, for high school students. Students will engage in learning with their teacher and complete classwork and assignments on a daily/weekly basis. The district is working on a plan to support seniors to earn credits for classes they are currently enrolled in, as well as any others they need to meet graduation requirements. Students should check their email frequently to stay updated on the most current information from their school, teachers and counselors.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. (Or, cover your face by coughing or sneezing into your sleeve if you don’t have a tissue.)
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • Stay at home and away from others if you are sick 
  • Get the flu shot (if able)
