Renton School District

2020-2021 School Year Reopening Plan

On Wednesday, March 3, teachers and staff welcomed students back into school buildings, including:

  • kindergarteners,
  • inclusive preschool students, and
  • elementary students served in self-contained special education classrooms.

We are grateful to the Renton Education Association (REA) bargaining team for continuing to collaborate to agree on practices that support the health and safety of students and staff.

Timeline for students whose families chose to return to in-person learning
