Hello Families,

I hope this email finds you well and healthy.  This has been an extraordinarily difficult and uncertain time for our students, families and staff. We thank you for your patience and grace as we have navigated these challenging obstacles. As we plan the start of school in a Comprehensive Distance Learning model we will need to revisit what the start of school looks like.

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has released reopening guidance for schools called Ready Schools, Safe Learners. One thing we know for sure is that school next year will not look the same as it did before the coronavirus.  Recognizing that COVID-19 will likely continue to pose a public health risk throughout next school year, and that the prevalence of COVID-19 varies community by community, the ODE blueprint instructs school districts to develop a back-to-school plan that utilizes a mix of on-site and distance learning options to protect the safety of students, staff, and families. Districts also developed communicable disease management plans and contingency plans in the event of COVID-19 outbreaks––including returns to fully distance learning and modified school year calendars as necessary.

At this time based on the metrics that were released this month from Governor Brown, David Douglas schools will open in with a Comprehensive Distance Learning model following ODE guidance. We will prioritize safety and student learning, with equity as our lens.  We will continue to communicate developments with you as necessary so that you and your students will be prepared for the start of the year.  

As we move forward towards uncharted territory with Comprehensive Distance Learning, we need to remember to show each other some grace, because this is new for all of us.  I will send out more information regarding what the start of school will look like as soon as we have more information.  

Please take care of yourself, stay healthy, and please reach out to me if you have any questions.
