WMS COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for On-Site Employees, Contractors & Volunteers

WMS will comply with Governor Inslee’s directive that all on-site school employees, contractors and volunteers be vaccinated against COVID-19 or obtain a religious or medical exemption. The primary goal of a vaccination policy is to create the safest possible environment for students and staff, with a focus on protecting those that are not yet eligible and those that are not able to get vaccinated. A person who has been exempted from vaccination is considered at risk for contracting and spreading the disease and will be excluded from direct contact with students.

Risk mitigation measures

Woodinville Montessori School has worked hard to put in place many measures that we expect to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19.

WMS Current Travel Recommendations & Requirements for Vaccinated & Unvaccinated Travelers

WMS continues to use the CDC recommendations as a model for our own travel policies. All students that travel (domestic or international) must notify COVID Coordinator Theresa Kirby and need to be cleared before returning to campus, regardless of vaccination status - click here for our Notice of Travel form. Per the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna) or 2 weeks after a 1-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson).

  • Domestic travel (outside of Washington State & within United States)
    • Fully vaccinated students: No restrictions – self-monitor for symptoms.
    • Unvaccinated students: Get tested with a viral test within 3-5 days of return from travel, return to school after 7 days from travel return date (even with negative test result) OR with no test, return to school after 10 days from travel return date.
  • International travel (outside of United States)
    • Fully vaccinated students: Get tested with a viral test within 3-5 days of return from travel, return to school upon negative test result. Self-monitor for symptoms.
    • Unvaccinated students: Get tested with a viral test within 3-5 days of return from travel, return to school after 7 days from travel return date (even with negative test result) OR with no test, return to school after 10 days from travel return date.
  • Washington State travel (within state)
    • No restrictions for any students (fully vaccinated or unvaccinated) – self-monitor for symptoms. No travel form needed.

If your family will be traveling, it is very important to fill out the WMS Travel Form - click here for our Notice of Travel form. Please contact COVID Coordinator Theresa Kirby with any questions.
