Dear Parents and Community, This has been a challenging year for all of us and I want to thank you for your support as we provided the best education possible during these times. We are nearing the end of the school year and must remain vigilant in doing our part to keep everyone safe. Please remember we have specific mandates such as wearing masks and social distancing that must be followed. We are working hard following the guidance we receive from Oregon Department of Education, ODE and Oregon Health Authority, OHA. With only 8 weeks of school left, it is critical we are diligent in following the mandates, especially as the county metrics have climbed again. Masks must be worn at all times with the exception of eating and drinking. Masks must cover the mouth and nose. Please continue reminding your children to keep their masks on while on school property. Our elementary school has received some OSHA complaints placing a focus on our school and the potential of fines or closure. We have worked so hard to remain in compliance, so please remember to follow these guidelines and help each other by responding to reminders from staff or other individuals. I know that some of you have your vaccination and feel safe in public. Being vaccinated or not does not change the mandates that are required for schools. Whether we agree, disagree, or are just plain tired of COVID, we must follow the guidance to help our district from potential fines, potentially being closed early for the year or other more rigid mandates that could impact cohort size and schedules. I am so proud of our school staff and students who have endured a very tough school year. Thank you for understanding and assisting our staff with compliance.

Harrisburg HS Cross Country team is going to state!
Dear Parents and community, We are planning to bring our kindergarten and middle school students back all day for in-person learning. Due to the recent changes in the “Ready Schools, Safe Learners” (RSSL) guidelines, a 90 plus page document published by the Oregon Department of Education, of 6 feet between students to three feet and removing the 35 square foot per student in classrooms. Students must stay 6 feet apart while eating or drinking when they remove their mask. Our building principals will communicate the details of the change. The plan is to begin on Monday, April 19 giving time for our staff to make the necessary adjustments to schedules and classrooms. Remember, our schools are an ecosystem consisting of a wide range of people from our community. Although the current case counts allow us more access, this is a time to remain vigilant around COVID protocol. This vigilance is why we have had success in reopening our schools, to move forward with athletics and activities, and to now get more in-person instruction for our students.
