Welcome Back, Huskies!

Dear Husky Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year! 

All of us here at Vaughn Elementary have been diligently preparing for the return of our Huskies  and we are looking forward to another year of excellence. Our dedicated educators have been engaged in professional learning opportunities to keep their teaching skills honed, and our committed custodians have been meticulously cleaning and disinfecting our building. While we know this school year will be different than previous ones, it will not damper our spirits nor our dedication to provide a top-notch education to our students!

Students are scheduled to begin the 2020-2021 school year on September 8. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as required by the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, students will start the school year in a remote platform and come back to school for in-person learning as soon as possible using a dialed approach. 

As done in previous years, families will still be able to meet the teacher.  Huskies will participate in our “Beep ‘n Greet” event which will be held on Wednesday, September 2 from 4PM-6PM.  More information will be forthcoming.  Please visit our webpage for supply lists, the school schedule, student meals, and other pertinent information.

Communication between home and school is critical, especially during a time when circumstances can change overnight. I will provide information to families via text, email, and our school webpage, so please ensure your information is updated in the Parent Portal.

This school year will be a new journey for all of us, but please know that I am committed to keeping our students, staff, and families healthy and safe while we navigate through these uncharted waters together. 

I look forward to a great year with you and your child!
