Back to School Updates
The Kent School District COVID-19 Dashboard shows a summary of all known cases of COVID-19 in our district.
It was published on February 16, 2021, the first school day students returned to campus for limited in-person services at select schools, and will be updated every Monday by 6:00 p.m.
Return to In-Person Learning
Returning to in-person learning remains a priority for Kent School District (KSD). Building leaders and COVID site supervisors have been working to prepare their buildings to safely welcome back students and staff following strict guidance from public health officials.
KSD Leaders are actively negotiating with Kent Education Association and Kent Principals Association and have initiated bargaining conversations with all labor partners about returning to in-person learning.
All Team KSD members remain committed to our shared goals for a safe return to in-person learning; however, based on where we stand today with our labor negotiations, we cannot predict the return date for in-person learning.
