COLLEGE PLACE: Students can get home learning packets

College Place Public Schools is providing educational material to parents during the extended COVID-19 closure.

For Davis Elementary School preschool, kindergarten and first-grade students, at-home learning packets will be available for pickup each Monday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Davis lobby. At-home learning packets can also be downloaded from the district’s website.

For second through fifth graders at Davis Elementary School as well as all classes at John Sager Middle School and College Place High School, at-home learning will be delivered through Google Classrooms, except during spring break.

Superintendent Jim Fry said the district is also offering emergency childcare for school-age children of healthcare professionals and first responders now through April 24, with the exception of spring break, April 6-10. It’s from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Davis Elementary School.

Fry said the district is also offering free meals to families during the district-wide school closure due to COVID-19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is for all College Place students. No meals will be served during spring break.

“School-aged children, regardless if they’re a student of College Place Public Schools, perhaps a student of Rogers Adventist School, Walla Walla Valley Academy, or students from Walla Walla that are in our area, can come through and get meals,” he said.
