Below is the Washington State Department of Health School Reopening Decision Tree for public and private schools. Movement from stage to stage in the school re-opening plan is based on the number of positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in Cowlitz County, consultation with health officials, and other community health considerations. The Washington State Department of Health School Reopening Decision Tree explains how the district will consider this data when determining the stages of fully reopening our schools.
