Overlake Combined, Overlake's Hybrid Instruction Underway
The Overlake School is fully complete with its transition to hybrid learning. All students who choose to return to campus are back for regular in-person learning among their cohort two days each week. Administration officials and members of the risk management committee continue to follow state and federal guidelines, including Washington State Department of Health Dec. 16 recommendations for schools.

Travel Quarantine Policy
New Guidelines for Vaccinated Students:
Once students complete their vaccination cycle and are two weeks post second shot, they do not need to quarantine after travel. This follows recommendations from WA state and county public health officials. Parents/guardians should enter vaccine information into their student's health record in Magnus.
Details on Travel Quarantine Policy:
Students now have two options after travel to return to school
- Quarantine for 14 days post travel (no testing needed).
- Complete a 7 full-day quarantine and also submit a negative PCR test to the school drawn on day 5-7 after returning to WA from travel. That means the soonest return is on day 8 post travel. Results will need to be submitted on the student Veracross portal. Results will need to be approved by the school and a reply received in order to return. Please allow at least 24 hours for confirmation that you may return to campus. Results must include students name, that the test was PCR and also include the date it was drawn.
(Example: I return from travel on March 29th. I quarantine for 7 full days, which begins on March 30th and therefore ends on April 5th. If I go get a PCR COVID test drawn on at least April 3-5th and submit it to the school and wait for approval, the soonest I may return after receiving approval would be on April 6th.)
