Renton School District

Health & Safety Measures 2021-2022 School Year

We continue to work to keep students and staff safe and healthy at school. At times, we will have a positive COVID case at school and will conduct Contact Tracing, the process to determine if someone else was exposed to a person with COVID-19 infection (generally defined as someone who was within 6 feet [3 feet at school] of a COVID-19 case for 15 cumulative minutes or more over a 24-hour period of time during the case’s infectious period).

If your student is defined as a Close Contact, you will receive a letter with information on

  • dates of exposure,
  • amount of time needing to quarantine at home (10 days after their last exposure to the positive individual),
  • and what to do next.

For more details, please see the tab below  "COVID Close Contact Tracing at School"

Vaccines for children 5-11

In anticipation of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children aged 5-11 and the recommendation today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the district has been coordinating with health providers to organize several COVID vaccination events in the middle of November. There will be about five vaccination events, with locations throughout the district. We will share more as details are finalized. Families can choose to use the free HealthPoint drive-thru COVID vaccine clinic at 805 SW 10th Street, Renton.

There are no requirements for any Renton School District student, at any grade level, to be vaccinated.
