The Quillayute Valley School District Board of Directors, administration, teachers and staff would like to welcome all students back to school. We are excited to celebrate the opening day of school on Tuesday, Sept. 5. We are looking forward to seeing all of our students and families.
Bus routes will stay the same as scheduled in the previous year. If you have moved, please notify the school office, so that we can arrange for a new bus route if applicable. Please help us ensure the safety of our pedestrians in all crossing areas by paying close attention to stop signs and traffic speeds.
For further questions, regarding busing, call the QVSD Transportation Department at 360-374-6262, ext. 150.
Student Drop Off Zones
To increase the safety for all students and staff, we are requesting that parents use specific zones for dropping off and picking up students. At Forks Elementary School, parents will use the yellow zone area. We ask that parents do not drop off and/or pick up students in the general parking area at the front of the building. At Forks Intermediate School, parents will use the drop-off zone in front of the school on A Street. At Forks Junior High School, we request that parents use Spartan Avenue in front of the building, and at Forks High school, we request that parents use the identified drop-off zone.
The District also is continuing to provide quality training for staff members so that they can keep current with mandated state and national guidelines. The schedule staff training (early release) is on Wednesdays. Students will be released at 2:10 p.m. at Forks Elementary School and at 2:15 p.m. at Forks Intermediate School, Forks Junior and Senior High School and the Alternative School. In September there are four early release days scheduled:
Early Release Days Wednesday, Sept. 6, 13, 20, 27
