The Intention for Commitment: Montessori education is multi-age and multi-year family commitment with developmental supports in the absorbent brain for young learners and young families. Reading over the Klahanie Handbook, found below, and the Logistics & Montessori Foundations page, Dr. Maria Montessori, as well as Anti-bias education researchers found, and continue to find data supporting the ongoing practice supports for children and families in these informative years of identity taking shape. We acknowledge and communicate to you all and that this work effectively and fun in deep support and trust, requires getting know a child and have patience for process. We follow children through observation, positive coaching practice in the social, emotional, physical and cognitive foundations and communicative, early supportive resource referrals of on and off island experts in numerous early learning therapies. Commitment in time is ideally offered to observe over time the developments, three years holding the honor working alongside students. Exceptions are made for transferring and Chautauqua Elementary students. We adapt to what student needs are on our island community for services and shared Kindergarten experiences. We support family ongoing connection and teamwork, establishing trust built together to learn about your child and support their learning processes. We work alongside in teamwork and invitation of class time to Specialists-Therapists to support children, and our teaching team to grow in healthy practices for all our students. Klahanie School welcomes annually returning alumni students who seek to mentor and show what they know, giving back in self awareness and care, confidence, and community inclusion practices to nurture empathy, and stand up for what they love.

Dear Vashon Parents and Families,

From the State Department of Health about COVID-19 health and safety guidance for schools this fall.

Washington state updated its COVID-19 school and child care guidance on August 5, 2022. Following these safety measures reduces the spread of COVID-19. This letter explains how the updated guidance impacts your family and the community.

Health and Safety Requirements for this Fall:

  • Students and staff who show symptoms of COVID-19 are required to stay home, and should get tested for COVID-19. 
  • Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate at home for 5 additional days after testing positive or onset of symptoms. If symptoms improve and they have had no fever for the past 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, students and staff can come back to school. 
  • Students and staff returning to school after isolation should wear a well-fitted mask from days 6 to 10. Individuals returning to school from isolation should also remain masked for sports and other extracurricular activities.
  • Re-testing is not required for return to school if symptoms improve and they have had no fever for the past 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications and have been isolated at home for 5 days. If families and/or staff choose to re-test, students and staff who test positive after 5 days of isolation must stay at home for the full 10-day isolation period.
  • Schools must inform students, families, and staff when there are cases or outbreaks in school. Schools are no longer required to directly notify high risk students or staff. We will continue to communicate cases to families by the district data dashboard. Any outbreaks will be reported to families by letter and reported to PHSKC.

These requirements are in place for all public and private K-12 schools and child care facilities in Washington state. Schools and child care facilities are required by state law to follow these guidelines.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, Vashon Island School District offers free COVID-19 testing for staff and students at school. You can find more information about this program at our district website.

COVID-19 vaccinations remain the best protection for everyone against hospitalization and severe disease from COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is now available for children 6 months and older. Booster doses are also available for children 5 years and older. You are encouraged to vaccinate your children if they are eligible, in consultation with your healthcare provider.
