FRS During COVID-19
Due to the unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation, FRS will remain remote throughout the 2020-2021 academic school year. We have reimagined FRS based on Jewish values, medical advice, and conversations with our reimagining task force, clergy, parent committee, and board of directors. We abide by the regulations set forth by Washington State and the King County Health department.
While FRS remote learning looks different from what we are used to, we are dedicated to ensuring the content of our curriculum is taught in a relevant way. To register for FRS, please click here.
The three Jewish values that have guided us along this rocky terrain have been Pikuah Nefesh (saving a life), Ushmartem et Nafshotechem (you shall scrupulously guard your health), and Dina D’malchuta Dina (the law of the land is the law). We base our policies at FRS on core Jewish values, medical advice, and best educational practices. We have planned for a rewarding synchronous Jewish learning experience online, with teachers and students working together at the same time to problem solve and cover new ground. Our priority is the safety of our staff and students coupled with continuity of learning.
We understand not all students thrive in an online setting as they would in person. We realize it’s challenging to stay focused for so long on a computer, and our teachers recognize the multiple ways students learn. When obstacles to learning arise, we will work together to create a meaningful step forward.
