Re-Opening Plan Updates to Families

Learning Resources Distribution Taking Place Each Wednesday 9:30 a.m-12:30 p.m.

Now that the 2020-2021 school year is underway it is important families know that your students’ schools will be distributing learning resources each Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. while the District is using a Distance Learning model. The first distribution takes place this Wednesday, September 16th.  Please reference the information below for the materials being made available by each of the schools.

Camas Elementary School

Camas Elementary will be providing learning resources by paper packets and/or a thumb drive to students that do NOT have access to the internet.  If this is the case, we urge you to pick up paper packets and/or thumb drives for your students which will be available every Wednesday behind our schools in the bus loop area, which can be accessed from 9th Avenue.  Our first packet/thumb drive distribution will start Wednesday, September 16th.  Packet/ thumb drive pick-up will be from 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.  You may drop by during these hours to get packets/thumb drives for your students in grades preK-2.  Every Wednesday thereafter, you can pick up a new packet during these same hours. Drop off boxes for each teacher will also be available to drop off finished work.  Remember, if you can access the materials online, you do NOT need to pick up a packet/thumb drive.  The packets/thumb drives are the same as the online resources on the Google Classrooms.

Satus Elementary School

Satus Elementary will be providing learning resources using a flash drive for those students unable to connect to a Wi-Fi network.  This year we will not be providing paper packets but will provide your students with a much better learning opportunity by using videos as teachers instruct your students online and with downloaded content on a flash drive if you do not have internet services.  Should you NOT have access to the internet, we urge you to pick up flash drives for your students which will be available every Wednesday behind our schools in the bus pick-up area, which can be accessed from 9th Avenue. Our first distribution will be on Wednesday, September 16, from 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. behind the school in our bus loop.  You may drop by during these hours to get your child’s flash drive if you do not have internet access.  Every Wednesday thereafter, you can pick up a new flash drive and bring back the old one during these same hours.  In this way we will always have a flash drive ready for you when you come to the distribution.   Remember, if you can access the materials online you do NOT need to pick up a flash drive and do not need to come to the school.    The material downloaded onto the flash drive will be the same as the online resources on the website.

Meals Service Being Made Available to All Kids (1-18 Years of Age)

Wapato Public Schools is pleased to announce a change in its meals service for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.  The District just received word from the State that it will be able to provide grab-and-go meals to all kids ages 1-18 years of age, not just those students enrolled in school.  This is the only change in the meals distribution program that starts the first day of school, Tuesday, September 8th.  The distribution days, times and locations outlined in a letter recently sent to all families will remain the same. 

  As the District previously communicated to families, the distribution sites will be Simcoe/Adams bus loop, Camas/Satus bus loop and the west side of Wapato High School, (nearest the tennis courts).  The first day of distribution will be Tuesday, September 8th from 9:30am-12:30pm.  Kids will receive four days worth of breakfasts and lunches.  Starting the week of September 14th the District will begin distributing meals two days a week (Mondays & Wednesdays) from 9:30am-12:30pm each day.  Kids will receive two days worth of meals on Monday and three days worth of meals on Wednesday.  Since the District will now be serving all kids 1-18 years of age there will be no requirement, at this time, for families to present their student’s meal card in order to receive a meal.

Enrollment Form Collection & Learning Materials Distribution Sept. 2-4

From September 2-4 Wapato Public Schools will be collecting enrollment forms and distributing important learning materials to families at each of your student's schools.  The distribution will include Chromebook computers for those students that still need one. It will also include personal items of student's that were in the schools at the time of the emergency closure last spring.  The day families will take part in the collection/distribution program is based on the students last name. 
  • Wednesday, Sept. 2nd for students whose last name starts with A-L (anytime between noon-3pm & 4:30-6:30pm)
  • Thursday, Sept. 3rd for students whose last names starts with M-Z (anytime between noon-3pm & 4:30-6:30pm)
