Secondary Building Reopening Hot Topics

Posted 4/7/2021


We are eager to have secondary students on campus for the first time in over a year for in-person learning. We know during this time there are feelings of excitement and trepidation is natural and understandable. Our incredible educators and school leaders care deeply for each of their students and will provide the absolute best care to our students while they are on campus. The health and wellbeing of our students is our top priority and we have taken steps to ensure Puyallup Tribal Health (PTHA) and Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department guidelines will be followed. 


We've highlighted important topics that make it easy for our families to read through. You can also read through our Return to In-Person Learning: Reopening Chief Leschi Schools Buildings Guide and watch our video that highlights what coming back to in-person learning will look like. 




Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for breakfast. Classes will start at 9:00 a.m. Buses will roll out at 3:30 p.m.




Students will need to go directly from one class to the next and follow the social distancing protocols. Signage reminders are placed on the floor and in the hallway. 




The restroom will be closed during passing periods. Students will use the restroom during classes. Only one student will be allowed in the bathroom during class. 




Students will only be able to eat during assigned eating times for maximum protection of our students and staff's health.
