Dear Daniel Bagley Families,

Please enjoy these pictures of some of the work our Bagley bees have been doing this month.

Important Upcoming Dates:

Reminder: If your student is going to be absent two or more school days, please submit a Pre-Planned Absence form to the office.

Safety Updates from Nurse Beck:

  • Updated travel guidelines: COVID travel guidelines and restrictions may vary by region and may change abruptly. Families are encouraged to stay up to date on regulations and best practices by checking the CDC website frequently and right before traveling.
  • Update FAQ sheet – Our health services department has recently published a new FAQ Health Services FAQ document to help guide us through this next phase of the pandemic.
  • Accepting COVID-19 Home Tests – Beginning on February 7, 2022, Seattle Public Schools will begin accepting rapid home antigen tests for a return to school. This change applies to unvaccinated students or staff that are identified as a close contact and are required to quarantine, students or staff that have two or more symptoms, or students and staff that are not close contacts but have COVID symptoms.
  • CDC Mask GuidanceCDC says N95 masks offer far better protection than cloth masks against omicron variant
  • Close the Loop– If your child is out due to illness please be sure to update us on your child’s status OR share negative COVID test results (even if testing is done at Bagley) BEFORE sending them back to school by emailing bagley.attendance@seattleschools.org
