April 23, 2021: Secondary COVID-19 District Evaluation


Per the District’s evaluation, all LWSD Schools will continue with current learning model. No changes to 4-day per week schedule

Earlier this week, we indicated in our Pathway Forward message that we would set benchmark dates for evaluating COVID case rates and test positivity on four dates throughout the remainder of this school year (April 23, May 7, May 21, and June 4). As of today, the following data is being reported by King County Public Health:   

County Cases per 100,000 over 14 days Test Positivity Rate
King 213.7 4.3%
LWSD Reported Region Cases per 100,000 over 14 days Test Positivity Rate
Kirkland 168 5.5%
Redmond 156.7 4.5%
Union Hill 113.5 4.1%
Sammamish 103 3.5%
Metrics Key
  Green Orange Red
Case Rate 0-179 180-219 220 or higher
Test Positivity 0% - 8.9% 9% - 10.9% 11% or higher

Additionally, we have been monitoring positive cases in our schools to determine if there is any evidence of epidemiological spread on our campuses.

Contact tracing does not demonstrate evidence of spread on our campus  Contact tracing indicates limited (less than 5) epidemiologically linked cases Contact tracing indicates significant spread on our campus

Therefore, as a result of our evaluation of this data, all LWSD Schools will continue with current learning model. No changes to 4-day per week schedule
