Clarkston Schools to Open for Full-Time, In-Person Instruction Starting April 12 - 03/29/21

Clarkston, WA--The Clarkston School District is excited that the Governor’s office has made the announcement that schools are now allowed to bring back students at a 3-foot physical distance in our classrooms. After weeks of discussion and preparation for this possibility, we have the following announcement:

At their March 29 meeting, the Clarkston School Board of Directors voted to open all schools for full-time, in-person instruction on April 12.

The following plan will be implemented:

  • During the week of April 5-9 students and staff will continue in a hybrid model. 
  • Wednesday, April 7, will be a remote learning day for students (no students attend in-person).
  • Staff may use April 7 to complete their preparation for school starting in-person, full-time on April 12. 


The following will be completed during the final week of the current hybrid schedule (April 5-9):

Coordinate the return of K-8 Clarkston Online (virtual) students

  • Conduct a survey for parents to determine how many students will be returning to full-time, in-person instruction. 
  • Finalize plans for a centralized registration process in order to accommodate incoming students enrolling in schools with 3-foot capacity. 
  • Change bus routes, adjust times, and communicate modifications with parents.
  • Collect and inventory equipment students used for remote learning.


Prepare student spaces and allow for teacher planning (April 7)

  • Move furniture and adjust classroom space for increased students.
  • Hire additional staff to provide support should additional students register for in-person, full-time school.
  • Procure and prepare to distribute breakfast and lunches in a new model.
  • Prepare and revise K-12 curriculum for the remainder of the year.


Support parents and students

  • Provide additional support to high school students who are currently employed.

CHS Air Force JROTC Cadet to Attend Flight Academy Program at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University - 03/18/21

Clarktson, WA--Aaron Bunce, a senior Air Force Junior ROTC cadet at Charles Francis Adams High School received a scholarship to attend an accredited aviation university participating in a private pilot license training program in the summer of 2020 after his junior year.  Due to COVID the 2020 program was canceled, but has been reinitiated for the summer of 2021 and Aaron was given the opportunity to participate in this summer’s program. 

Cadet Aaron Bunce is one of 200 Air Force Junior ROTC cadets around the world to receive the scholarship from Headquarters Air Force Junior ROTC, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama. More than 2,575 cadets applied for one of the 200 scholarships. There are more than 125,000 high school students enrolled in Air Force Junior ROTC at almost 900 high schools in the U.S and overseas. The scholarship covers transportation, room and board, academics and flight hours required to potentially earn a private pilot license. The scholarship is valued at approximately $22,500.

The Flight Academy Scholarship Program is Air Force-level initiative in collaboration with the commercial aviation industry to address the national civilian and military pilot shortage.  Those who participate in the program do not incur a military commitment to the Air Force or other branch of service, nor does completing the program guarantee acceptance into one of the military’s commissioning programs.  The mission of Air Force Junior ROTC is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community, while instilling values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and sense of accomplishment. When looking to fill tomorrow’s career needs with the best candidates, there is simply no better place for the nation to look than Air Force Junior ROTC!

Aaron will be attending Embry Riddle Aeronautical University-Prescott, AZ.  The program will begin on 6 June 21 and end on 1 August 21.
