All but two Kent School District schools will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 8, after all schools were closed Monday because of power outages and debris from the weekend windstorm.

Crestwood Elementary, in Covington, and Grass Lake Elementary, in unincorporated King County, will remain closed, according to a Monday evening announcement by the Kent School District. All other schools will open at their regular bell time.

“Thank you to everyone for your patience as we prioritized the safety of all students and staff across the district Monday and took time to ensure all buildings were safe for reentry,” according to the district announcement.

Grass Lake and Crestwood Elementary schools are expected to reopen when power is restored and campuses are safe from debris. Puget Sound Energy anticipates these schools will be ready for staff and students on Wednesday, and will reopen at their regular bell time.
