Dear Families,

I wanted to give you an update on where we are with the recent COVID surge. As you can see from our dashboard, our COVID numbers are on the rise. This most recent surge is spreading rapidly, and often appears with minor symptoms. We know from experience, when we see an increase in community spread, we see a significant increase in our schools. This new virus is having a direct impact on our staffing.  

We are working extremely hard to find creative ways in which we can cover classrooms and student support services in order to remain in-person learning.  

Our sense of urgency is for additional substitutes in the following areas: teaching staff, front office support staff, bus drivers, school nurses, custodians and para educators.  Substitutes have the ability to pick up jobs as their schedule allows.  It is a great opportunity to be more involved with a dedicated staff and amazing students. Those interested in becoming a substitute teacher must have a four year college degree and need to complete the Substitute - Certified application.  Those interested in becoming a substitute para educator, bus driver, custodian or nurse should complete the Substitute - Classified application.

If you are interested in learning more about his opportunity to support our students, please contact Becky Roberts for more information at

We also have a number of open positions that need to be filled which include:

  • Payroll/Benefits Specialist

  • Secondary Counselor (for Swiftwater Learning Center)

  • Mechanic

  • Swing Shift Custodian

  • Para Educator (for Cle Elum-Roslyn Elementary)

We hope that we will be able to ride this surge out like we have done before. However, in the event we are no longer able to provide adequate coverage to support a safe and healthy learning environment, we will need to contemplate switching to remote learning. Having our students in school is the safest and most supportive place to be and we will continue to work hard to ensure that our students remain in person for their learning. We have fought hard to keep our students in a healthy and safe in-person learning environment and will continue to do so.

Stay safe, stay healthy,

Michelle Kuss-Cybula


Cle Elum-Roslyn School District
