On Jan. 10 at the Mercer Island School District (MISD) office, Sophia Murrey (left) and Nuria Lencia (right) prepared COVID-19 testing packets for families. MISD staff handed out packets on the morning of Jan. 11 for students eligible to return to school on an earlier timeline in accordance with the Washington State Department of Health’s recent update via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations. “MISD is attempting to roll out the shortened quarantine timelines as quickly as possible for all students,” reads the district’s Facebook page.
