About the Event

From Seattle Public Schools:

We are happy to announce that we now have 60,000 rapid antigen tests available for staff and students, which were provided by the Washington State Department of Health. In light of the surge in COVID-19 transmission in our community due to the Omicron virus, we’ll be using these tests to support a healthy return to school.

To do so, we will be offering voluntary, universal testing for SPS staff and students on Monday, Jan. 3.

This means there will be no school for SPS students on Jan. 3. School will resume in-person on Tuesday, Jan. 4. We encourage families to contact their on-site childcare provider to determine if they will be open on Monday, Jan. 3.

Meals

Buildings will be open during normal hours for those students who need to access meal services:

  • All school sites will serve grab-and-go lunches between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Monday for students needing meal service.
