Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

The month of May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month, which is a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. The term AAPI encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia.

The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States in 1843 and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. The majority of workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.

Message from Mr. Pease:

To Our David Douglas Families,

Optional Masks: As you may have seen from the Superintendent Richardson and the David Douglas School Board, face masks will be optional for both students, staff, and visitors starting Monday, March 14th. Here is part of the statement: “Students and adults entering David Douglas schools and facilities will no longer be required to wear masks as of Monday, March 14th, though mask wearing continues to be encouraged, supported and welcomed for those who want or need that proven extra protection.”

Here are some clarifications/info:

  • All of our previous expectations remain the same – both pre pandemic and during the pandemic (except masks of course).
  • We want to continue to reinforce hygiene (washing hands, hand sanitizer, etc.).
  • Many students have mentioned that they really like wearing masks for a variety of reasons (some feel very vulnerable
  • without them). We will continue to support them.
  • We will continue to hand masks out to those who request them.
  • Options: 1) wear a mask, 2) partially wear a mask, 3) not wear a mask.
  • When students are in the Health Room, they will be asked to wear a mask, but it remains an option.
  • Students are not required to wear masks on the school bus.
  • People who are exposed to a COVID positive person will not be excluded unless they are showing symptoms.
  • We are still allowed to COVID Test here at school.

School Schedule:

  • We will be in school Monday through Friday.
  • On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, the school day will be 8:20 to 3:00.
  • Late start Wednesdays will be 9:40 to 3:00.
