Zoom links for Friday, March 12th Professional Development Day will be sent to registered staff on Monday and Tuesday
All staff that registered for the Early Learning Professional Development Day on Friday, March 12th will get an email on either Monday, March 8th or Tuesday, March 9th with all of the zoom links for their selected sessions and other details for the day. The communication will be sent to the email the staff indicated in their individual registration. I am really looking forward to this virtual conference and I know our presenters are excited to be a part of this day! Looking forward to joining the sessions with you and having a great day of learning!
Early Learning Roundtable: Non-Covid Times connections with K-8 program Thursday, March 18th at 4:00pm
One of the keys to successful conversion of Early Learning students to our school’s Kindergarten programs is how we connect our students and families to the K-8 program and community in our schools. We see this with specialists, holiday concerts, reading buddies, mentor families and more. I look forward to a conversation to share what you do in your programs during non-covid times to connect our Early Learners with the greater school community. Please come prepared to share one or two ideas you use or hope to use as we learn from each other!

Licensed ONLY: Annual Immunization Reporting Update
The Washington Department of Health released an update Friday on the Annual Immunization reporting requirements. Please see the message below for licensed programs.
- To prioritize COVID vaccine planning and distribution, preschool and child care reporting is cancelled for the 2020-2021 school year ONLY.
- Reporting will resume in the fall of 2021.
The school reporting [gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com] and preschool and child care reporting [gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com] web pages will be updated to reflect the most up-to-date information. We appreciate your patience during this time.
