COVID-19 Public Notice-ECE Services

OCTOBER 7, 2020

Quileute Community Members,

Quileute Early Childhood Education (ECE) programs have developed a comprehensive COVID-19 safety plan to return students to the classroom.

With the support of Tribal Council, a tentative return date for Head Start and Child Care has been set for October 19th so long as there are no significant COVID-19 increases in the area.

Programs will be operating at a limited capacity with no more than eight children and two teachers per classroom. In addition, stringent planning and scheduling has been designed to maintain social distancing, limit contact between the different classroom cohorts, and to ensure that thorough sanitation and cleaning takes place regularly.

For a more complete understanding of the ECE Covid-19 safety protocols contact Head Start at 360-374-2631, or Child Care at 360-374-5633.

COVID-19 Public Notice-Halloween

September 29, 2020

Quileute Community Members,

The Quileute Tribal Council has determined that residents only, may participate in this year’s Halloween Trick-or-Treating activities in La Push.

However, Tribal Council asks that individuals remember to practice safe hygiene with frequent hand washing and disinfectant and, if passing out treats, to wear a facial covering.

The CDC recommends:

“Participating in one-way trick-or-treating where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)”

If you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 second before and after preparing the bags.

The Events Department will also be providing several virtual activities to make sure our community has a safe and fun Halloween.

For more information on how you and your family can participate in low risk Halloween activities visit the CDC COVID-19 Holidays Celebrations- Halloween

Questions or concerns contact Incident Commander, Bill Lyon.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay Quileute strong,

COVID-19 Emergency Relief policy

COVID-19 Emergency Relief Policy

Since March of 2020, the Quileute Tribal Council has continued to support its tribal members by periodically providing emergency financial assistance to help individuals and their families cope with the additional financial burdens resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. On May 14th, 2020 the Tribal Council enacted the “Quileute Indian Tribe General Welfare Ordinance” to allow the Quileute Tribal Council to approve programs to provide general welfare benefits to Tribal Members ages 18 years and older on a tax-free basis.

On the same day, pursuant to the Ordinance, the Tribal Council approved the COVID-19 Emergency Relief General Welfare Benefit Policy (“Policy”). Please review the Policy here to understand how this policy applies to all previous and future issuances of Covid-19 emergency relief payments by the Tribe to all eligible tribal members.
