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.

Dear 8th grade Harrisburg Middle School families,

As we approach the end of the year it is time to start planning for 8th grade Promotion!

If your student is an 8th grader at HMS and you would like to be on the planning committee please fill out the form below.

https://forms.gle/nnvnTQCD7vw4ATNP9

We will have an initial committee meeting via zoom on Monday, May 24th at 7pm to discuss the logistics of 8th grade promotion. Due to the unique year that we have experienced this year our gym will not be available for our June 14th promotion. Our intention is to have a drive through experience like we did last year utilizing the bus lot turnaround. I will send out an agenda before the initial meeting.

Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your continued support of HMS and our wonderful students!

Respectfully,

Pat Jarman

Estimado familias de los estudiantes de octavo grado,

Tendremos una reunión inicial de comisión a través de Zoom el lunes 24 de mayo a las 7 de la noche para discutir la logística de la promoción de octavo grado.

Nuestra intención es tener una experiencia como la que hicimos el año pasado utilizando el cambio de lote de autobuses. Enviaré una agenda antes de la reunión inicial.

Comuníquese con nosotros si tiene alguna pregunta o preocupación. ¡Gracias por su apoyo a HMS y nuestros maravillosos estudiantes!

Respetuosamente,

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.
