Aki Kurose Remote Learning May 30 – June 2

Aki Kurose Middle School Remote Learning May 30 – June 2

Dear Aki Kurose Families, 

Aki Kurose Middle School will be moving to remote instruction next week due to the risk of transmission of measles from a recent confirmed case in our school community. The health and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority.  

School will be closed for students Friday, May 26, so our educators can prepare for online learning. There is no school on Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day. 

Our students and educators will join live classes remotely through Microsoft Teams Tuesday, May 30 – Friday, June 2, following our regular bell schedule. We will be using remote instruction for four school days. The first day back to in-person instruction is expected to be Monday, June 5. 

To support families, SPS Culinary Services will have food boxes for students available for pick up at the school starting May 30. Please contact the school office or check the Aki Kurose website for more information.  

Meeting links for live instruction on Teams 

Classroom Microsoft Teams meeting links will be shared by teachers. Please check with your student’s teacher if you are not sure where to find them. Links will be posted on your student’s Schoology landing page or course page. If you have questions, please reach out to your student’s advisory teacher.  

Tech Support will be available Tuesday-Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. Visit our student tech support webpage for more information. You can also contact our tech support by calling 206-252-0100. 

About the Measles Exposure at Aki Kurose 

An Aki Kurose student tested positive for measles. Measles is highly contagious. Individuals who do not have immunity are vulnerable to getting measles by being in the room where a person with measles has been.  

Anyone exposed to measles who does not have immunity must stay home. When there is measles exposure at school, Public Health – Seattle & King County requires everyone at the school to show documentation of measles immunity.  

Please watch for the symptoms of measles until June 2, even if you have documented immunity to measles. If you notice symptoms of measles, call your health care provider before visiting the medical office. 

Read more about the measles exposure and symptoms on the Aki Kurose website.  

The school and district staff are here to support the school community. The Aki Kurose Middle School office number is 206-252-7700.
