Based on guidance from King County Public Health, Chief Kanim will remain open for classes at this time. Our school district has enacted several new safety measures to balance these recommendations of continuing regular operations of our schools while reducing the risks to our learning community. These measures have been implemented to help reduce exposure to COVID-19 by limiting the number of people coming in and out of our buildings, reducing opportunities for exposure, and helping conserve vital resources.

Until further notice:

1) All district building use by outside groups is suspended.

2) Off-campus field trips will be determined on a case-by-case basis by district administration.

3) All games, concerts, dances, plays and informational and/or evening events are canceled or postponed to a later date TBD.

4) All travel by SVSD staff is suspended.

5) All onsite volunteer work is suspended in order to limit the number of people coming in and out of our buildings.

6) Staff-led school sports practices and club activities will continue, though only students and staff will be permitted to attend. Any activities led by outside organizations (including PTSA) will be canceled.

7) Parents and guardians who have meetings scheduled, or who need to come to the front office, or pick up or drop off a student, may still do so. However, we encourage parents and guardians to communicate by email or phone if possible, in an effort to reduce people coming in and out of our school buildings.

Youth Success! Mentoring
Youth Success! Mentoring (YSM) is an in-school volunteer mentoring program that pairs community members with SVSD students. YSM volunteers work with the same student one-to-one, once a week. Research shows the powerful positive effects on a young person’s personal, academic and community situation that result from a quality mentoring relationship. Anyone who has a desire to help a child can be a mentor. Less than one hour a week during the school year is all it takes to show a child that they matter and that they are not alone in their day-to-day challenges.
