Keizer Elementary School
Welcome to Hybrid Learning!
We are so excited to get to see your faces in our classrooms once again! We are aware that this experience might feel a little daunting as things will be different. Keizer staff will be here to support you every step of the way. As we return to some in-person instruction, here are some things we would like for you to remember:
1. We will all be wearing our face coverings during the time we are at school, and will only take them off to eat
2. We will practice social distancing by remaining at least 6 feet apart from our peers at all times
3. We will maintain good hand hygiene by frequently washing our hands and using hand sanitizer
4. We will stay home if we are feeling ill
