As we prepare for the start of the 2021-22 school year, the district has outlined procedures in the event your student is exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you are fully vaccinated (and it has been two full weeks since your vaccination) and you are asymptomatic then no quarantine is necessary.
These procedures align to those passed in surrounding states. As per district guidelines, please consider the following:
Students who are exposed at home and/or outside of school:
Must quarantine at home following the directions of their medical provider.
Students who are exposed at school:
If You Are Symptom Free, No Quarantine is Necessary IF:
You are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and it has been at least two weeks from your final dose.
You and the person who tested positive were both wearing masks.
You have tested positive for COVID-19 on a test or antigen test within the last 90 days.
If You Are Symptom Free, and Are Willing to Wear a Mask:
Wear a mask at school for 10 days, or
Wear a mask at school for 7 days and get tested on Day 5. If you test negative, you no longer have to wear a mask after the 7th day.
If You Prefer to Quarantine:
Quarantine at home for 10 days, or
Quarantine at home for 7 days and get tested on Day 5. If you test negative and do not have symptoms on Day 7, you may return to school after the 7th day.
Students in quarantine who are not feeling ill are expected to connect to classes via Canvas. Students who connect to classes daily will not be counted as absent.
If you choose a 7 day option with testing, please contact the district at 347-9286 to set an appointment for testing. The district will provide testing or will cover the cost of testing your student.

Dear School Community
Washakie #1 is in the process of updating our Smart Start Plan, a requirement of ARP ESSER. This plan requires public input. The district will be posting a survey tool to gather input shortly. Please check back soon.
Every employee at Washakie #1 is fully committed to providing a safe environment for our students. We are confident that all students will experience high levels of learning. And we are so excited to have had our student in school all year – thanks for sharing your children with us!
