Dayton school board approves graduation date and shares student meal schedule


March 26, 2020

In a meeting held virtually, the Dayton School Board met to discuss a few items including the impact of the health crisis on the schools.

When discussing the budget, board members noted that district costs have gone down with travel out of district being cancelled, and there being no substitute teacher costs to pay.

The key date for the Dayton School Board is April 27. That is currently the scheduled date that all students are expected to return to school following Governor Inslee’s mandatory school closure. The return date is important to signal a return to normalcy and it will also serve as a count date. Funding for the upcoming school year will be based on the number of students counted on that date.

Feeding kids during the school closure was another key topic discussed. Starting Monday March 23 breakfast and lunches will be available to anyone 18 and under. The student must be present to receive the meals. Some meals will be delivered, and others can be picked up after 11 a.m. until noon at the Dayton Elementary Multipurpose room.

See schedule on page 3.

The board also unanimously approved the June 6 graduation date and the June 1 senior trip to Silverwood and Lake Coeur D’Alene Dinner Cruise barring any unforeseen complications.

Finally, Resolution 2019-05 for the emergency suspension of policy was approved, which means the School Board is agreeing to follow the proclamations the Governor and State Superintendent of Public Instruction make regarding COVID-19.
