We have heard from several of you regarding concern over graduation happening outdoors in possible rain. After a lot of discussion, the decision has been made to keep tomorrow’s graduation ceremony outside - rain or shine. At this late date there are too many moving parts to effectively navigate that change, the most significant is the fact that if we move inside we would have to limit the number of guests, and there is no equitable way to do that at this point. We purchased large tents several months ago, so tomorrow the graduates and the stage will be under cover. You are welcome to bring umbrellas or pop up canopies for your family if you so wish. Thank you for your concern, we look forward to celebrating with you tomorrow!

District calendar adjustment Dear Parents and Guardians, I would like to extend a most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you for partnering with the school staff by bringing your children to school ready to learn while following the health protocols. Last year we were one of the few districts that had an elementary school open its doors on the first day of school, and stay open throughout the year. Our middle school was also one of a very few schools to welcome students back for full in-person days. Our high school, as well, had opened its doors to part time days for all students. During this time we didn’t have a single outbreak. All of us made major sacrifices and pivots to make sure that our students were safe and getting the best education available to them. We all worked extremely hard. This year, however, has been different. At the beginning of August we were forced to adapt to new mask mandates which created much controversy in our community. As cases began to rise we had many students who were forced to quarantine and every staff member stepped up and made sure that our quarantined students still had access to their education through online learning and packets being sent home. We are now beginning to see students experiencing learning loss and struggles behaving in the classroom. Many of our staff are working much harder and longer to compensate for the loss of learning by meeting with students virtually and creating packets. Staff shortages are creating a hardship on teachers and principals as they cover classes. In many ways our staff is working longer and harder and this year is proving to be much more difficult than last year. The school board voted last night to give staff a much needed work day and an extra day off during Thanksgiving week. Many districts in our region, and across the state, are providing staff with a much needed break. At the school board meeting on November 8th, I recommended to the school board that Monday, November 22nd be a non-student contact work day and that November 23rd be a paid day off for all staff. The school board voted unanimously in favor of this recommendation. Please note your children do not come to school the week of November 22nd so your families may enjoy time with family and friends during Thanksgiving. The board and district administrators want to recognize the great work all of our staff are doing and have done the past three months. Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and celebrate all we have to be thankful for in this school district and community.

Hi Everyone, Last night at the school board meeting a parent posed the question of what the district stance is on CRT. It is not part of the state standards that we teach from.

Dear Harrisburg Community, Last week we received new information relating to students wearing masks while at school, school athletic events, and extracurricular activities. It is important to know that these new guidelines are optional and do not have to be implemented by school districts. Harrisburg School District leadership has met and decided to adopt the following change to students wearing masks: Harrisburg School District staff, at their discretion, will allow students to remove their masks during supervised outdoor activities such as outdoor PE and recess. Students will still be required to wear masks while on campus and in classrooms and will still be required to maintain social distancing at all times. Thank you for partnering with us as we complete a very challenging school year. We are in the final few weeks of school and will finish EAGLE strong.

Dear Parents and Guardians, Yesterday, Governor Brown issued a video statement on how the new CDC guidance will be implemented in Oregon. In her statement she shared, "Nothing is changing for schools this school year, and I expect education staff and students to continue to wear masks and physically distance, as outlined in our Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance." This also applies to all other individuals on school campus, including but not limited to: family members, volunteers, visitors, SROs, and other partners. I hope you understand we must follow the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance as established by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon Health Authority, OHA. ODE is currently working with OHA on guidance for next school year. Thank you for partnering with the school staff creating a safe and secure place for our children to learn and grow.
