Letter to the Community From the San Juan Island School District Board

Much has been done in the very short time that our school district first learned about the coronavirus pandemic. The Superintendent and staff have been working tirelessly to develop a plan to serve our students in a tele-schooling model for at least the next six weeks.

Most districts are expecting an extended loss of learning time. We are one of the few districts that is ready to face this challenge. The ongoing community support that our schools enjoy provides both the means and opportunity to keep our kids ready to move forward. For this we thank you.

We are on track to tele-school our entire student body in partnership with Rock Island Technology Solutions who is graciously providing access where needed. Our students will have access to their own classes, teachers and paraprofessionals electronically.

We are on track to continue Special Education services, with some adaptations.

We are on track to continue meal service for those who are in need.

We are on track to continue employing all of our staff; teachers, paraprofessionals, clerical staff, custodians and drivers.

There are still many unknowns, the situation is very fluid. Different issues arise daily, but between our community and our outstanding staff, our kids will move forward and be prepared to meet next year exactly where they should be.

On behalf of our school board, thank you for your support. 

Barbara Bevens

San Juan Island School District Board Chair
