  • Dear Cashmere Families,

    I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. First and foremost, I want to say thank you!

    Thank you for your grace and cooperation as we adjust to the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been quite the roller-coaster of emotions and planning as we sort through changing guidance and recommendations from multiple agencies on how to bring students and staff back for in-person instruction as quickly and safely as possible.

    As a district, we started the new school year fully remote for all students and have since safely brought in our students most in need of support for specialized services, one-on-one support and even some small group instruction.

    Chelan-Douglas County COVID-19 case numbers have been dropping drastically, which is good news. Results from the community-wide relevance COVID testing in Cashmere last week gave a positive rate of approximately 1% of all tests, which is also very encouraging.

    Given this recent data, we have been granted approval from Dr. Butler and the Chelan-Douglas Health District to move into our next phase of in-person services, bringing our Pre-K through 2nd grade students back to the classroom, with appropriate safety precautions.

    Our Pre-K through 2nd grade hybrid plan is as follows, with a start date of October 12th:

    • Half day in-person, Monday through Friday, on either an AM or PM schedule.
    • Every student will be in-person approximately 3 hours and remain with the same cohort of students and staff each day.
    • There will be a 2-hour break between the AM and PM cohorts to allow for transportation to and from school, as well as cleaning on site between cohorts.
    • Classes will be split alphabetically, A-L and M-Z, keeping sibling groups on the same schedule.
    • Any parents/families that do not feel comfortable returning to in-person instruction will be offered the option to continue with remote learning.
    • All students and staff are required to complete a health screening prior to arrival each day.
    • Additional health screening protocols will be completed upon arrival at school.
    • All students and staff will be required to wear masks and maintain 6 feet physical distancing while at school and wash or sanitize their hands frequently throughout their time on-site.

    Why are we starting with Pre-K through 2nd grade?  Health department guidelines recommend returning kids in “phases” starting with students with special needs, most at-risk and our youngest learners, which is exactly what we are doing.  We also know that our younger students find remote learning more challenging because of their age and development, and in-person instruction is key to setting them up for success. 

    After this first phase, additional phases will be implemented (as approved by Dr. Butler) until we have all students, Pre-K through 12th grade, back in the classroom. Health officials suggest a three week window between phases which the school district will use as a guide for finalizing a timeline for full return. 

    Please know that this is still uncharted territory and there will be some elements of the plan that will need to be worked out or refined along the way. Specifics for each building will be determined by each school principal and their teams, then communicated directly to each school community.

    Again, please accept my heartfelt thanks for your patience, flexibility and understanding as we continue to navigate this challenging and unprecedented time.

  • Estimadas Familias de Cashmere,

    Espero que todos se encuentren seguros y sanos.  ¡Ante todo, quiero darles las gracias!

    Gracias por su gracia y cooperación a medida que nos adaptamos a la pandemia COVID-19 en constante evolución.  Ha sido una montaña rusa de emociones y planificación a medida que recibimos recomendaciones de diferentes agencias sobre cómo traer a los estudiantes y el personal de vuelta para tener instrucción en persona lo más rápido y seguro posible.

    Como distrito, comenzamos el nuevo año escolar totalmente remoto para todos los estudiantes y desde entonces, hemos traído de forma segura a nuestros estudiantes más necesitados de apoyo para servicios especializados, apoyo individual e incluso alguna instrucción en grupo pequeño.  Las cifras de casos COVID-19 del condado de Chelan-Douglas han estado disminuyendo drásticamente, lo cual es una buena noticia.

    Los resultados de las pruebas COVID de relevancia en toda la comunidad en Cashmere la semana pasada dieron una tasa positiva de aproximadamente el 1% de todas las pruebas, lo que también son buenas noticias.

    Teniendo en cuenta estos datos recientes, se nos ha otorgado la aprobación del Dr. Butler y el Distrito de Salud Chelan-Douglas para pasar a nuestra siguiente fase de servicios en persona, llevando a nuestros estudiantes de Pre-K a 2do grado de vuelta a la clase, con las precauciones de seguridad apropiadas.

    Nuestro plan híbrido de Pre-K a 2do grado es el siguiente, con una fecha de inicio del 12 de octubre:

    • Medio día en persona, de lunes a viernes, en un horario de AM o PM.
    • Cada estudiante estará en persona aproximadamente 3 horas y permanecerá con el mismo grupo de estudiantes y personal cada día.
    • Habrá un descanso de 2 horas entre las clases de AM y PM para permitir el transporte hacia y desde la escuela, también para hacer la limpieza en estos salones.
    • Las clases se dividirán alfabéticamente, A-L y M-Z, manteniendo a los grupos de hermanos en el mismo horario.
    • A todos los padres/familias que no se sientan cómodos volviendo a la instrucción en persona, se les ofrecerá la opción de continuar con el aprendizaje remoto.
    • Todos los estudiantes y el personal deben completar un examen de salud antes de la llegada cada día.
    • Se completarán requisitos adicionales de detección de salud a su llegada a la escuela.
    • Todos los estudiantes y el personal tendrán que usar máscaras y mantener el distanciamiento físico de 6 pies mientras están en la escuela, y lavarse o desinfectar sus manos con frecuencia durante su tiempo en la escuela.

    ¿Por qué empezamos con Pre-K ha 2do grado? Los consejos del departamento de salud recomiendan regresar a los niños en "fases" comenzando con estudiantes con necesidades especiales, la mayoría en riesgo, y nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes, que es exactamente lo que estamos haciendo.  También sabemos que nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes encuentran el aprendizaje remoto más difícil debido a su edad y desarrollo, y la instrucción en persona es importante para prepararlos a tener éxito.

    Después de esta primera fase, se implementarán fases adicionales (según lo aprobado por el Dr. Butler) hasta que todos los estudiantes, Pre-K a 12o grado, vuelvan a clases.  Los funcionarios de salud sugieren un periodo de dos a tres semanas entre las fases que el distrito escolar utilizará como guía para finalizar el regreso de instrucción en persona por completo.

    Por favor, sepa que este es todavía un territorio desconocido y habrá algunos elementos del plan que tendrán que ser agregados o refinados en el camino.  Los detalles de cada edificio serán determinados por cada director de escuela y su equipo, y luego se comunicarán directamente a cada comunidad escolar.  Una vez más, acepten mi más sincero agradecimiento por su paciencia, flexibilidad y comprensión a medida que continuamos navegando por este tiempo desafiante y sin precedentes.

  • “Notification of Rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)"


    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."


    Parents or eligible students have the following rights in regards to student education records:


    • The right to inspect and review the student’s education record.  District Procedure 3231 (Student Records) specifies the process for the inspection and review of student education records.


    • The right to request amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate or misleading.  Parents or eligible students who wish to request that the District amend their child’s or their education record should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the District decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the District will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment.  Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.


    • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.  One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official typically includes a person employed by the District as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the School Board. A school official may also include a person or company with whom Cashmere School District has outsourced services or functions it would otherwise use its own employees to perform (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.


    • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the district to comply with the requirements of FERPA.


    • The right to information about who to contact to seek access or amendment of education records.


    Directory Information: Federal law allows a school district to identify certain items as “directory information” that may be publicly released without permission of parents or eligible students upon the condition that the parent or eligible student be notified annually of the school's intention to release such information and be provided the opportunity to indicate that such information is not to be released without prior consent.  Cashmere School District identifies “directory information” as the student's name, photograph, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, dates of attendance, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, diplomas and awards received and the most recent previous school attended.  Directory information shall not be released for commercial reasons.  Any parent or eligible student who does not consent to the school’s release of their student’s directory information must provide written notice to the school.  Please contact office staff at your student’s school to obtain additional information on how and when you may provide this notice.”

Estos derechos luego se transfiere al estudiante cuando cumplen 18 años o asisten a una escuela después de completar el nivel de preparatoria. Si el estudiante recibe la transferencia de los derechos, todavía se consideran como estudiantes protegidos por estos derechos.
    -Los padres o estudiantes que reciben la transferencia de los derechos tienen la capacidad de revisar los records educacionales que son mantenidos por la escuela. Aparte de razones en que los padres o estudiantes que reciben los derechos no son capaces de ver los records por distancia, las escuelas no son obligados a proporcionar copias de los records. Las escuelas que proporcionan estas copias de records educacionales tienen el derecho de cobrar para imprimirlo.
    -Los padres o estudiantes que reciben la transferencia de los derechos tienen la capacidad de peticionar que las escuelas cambian los records en caso de que hay un error. Si la escuela decide no cambiar el record, los padres o estudiantes que reciben los derechos a pedir un audiencia formal en el corte. Después de la audiencia formal, si la escuela decide no cambiar el record, los padres o estudiantes que reciben los derechos tienen permiso añadir los cambios en que originalmente pidieron la petición.
    Las escuelas pueden revelar información como los nombres de los estudiantes, dirección de hogar, numero de teléfono, fecha de nacimiento, reconocimientos, y records de asistencia. En estos casos, las escuelas tienen que notificar los padres y estudiantes de la revelación de este información con anticipación para que los padres y estudiantes pueden pedir que no publican este información. Las escuelas tienen que notificar a los padres y estudiantes cada año de sus derechos por (FERPA). La forma en como la escuela notifica los padres sera dirigido por la escuela.
