Organizers have had to cancel Camas Days for a second year in a row due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Washougal School District has reverted back to remote-only school board meetings following a disruption by audience members that resulted in police action during a May 11 meeting.
The Camas School Board unanimously approved the school district’s proposed Academic and Student Well-Being Plan, meant to address student needs that resulted from the closure of school buildings and the move to remote-learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Camas School District said this week it will celebrate its 2021 high school graduates with in-person commencement ceremonies in early June.
Mary Templeton’s main concern about the Washougal School District’s plans for its upcoming in-person graduation ceremony doesn’t have anything to do with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Washougal School Board members said they were forced to end their May 11 meeting early after several residents — who had been asked to leave the in-person meeting after they refused to wear face coverings in accordance with the school district’s COVID-19 safety protocols — began writing on district windows and board members’ cars parked outside the meeting room.
The city of Camas will soon begin receiving funds from President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act, meant to facilitate the country’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
More than 20 Camas-area residents — including the owner of a Washougal pediatric health clinic and several parents who have pulled their students out of public Camas schools — wrote letters and spoke at an in-person Camas School Board meeting on Monday, May 10, lambasting mask mandates and other COVID-19 safety measures; remote learning; racial justice and equity programs; and “woke agendas.”
