Creswell School District - 11/4/21
Message from Superintendent Mike Johnson
One of the most important reasons to celebrate is having students in our schools, learning every day. We know that nearly all children learn better when taught in-person and that children and families rely on schools to provide a caring and safe environment. As the weather turns colder and people spend more time indoors, please continue doing your part to protect our staff and students' health. If your child is experiencing symptoms or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, keep them home and contact your student's school. This care and concern for one another helps teach our students important lessons about responsibility and community. As always, thank you for your support of education and Creswell's children!
Creswell Season of Giving
COVID-19 Vaccines for Children 5-11
COVID vaccines are free, available at no cost, and an important tool to keep our children learning in-person all year long. Vaccinated students do not quarantine or get excluded from school when they have been exposed to COVID-19 unless they are showing symptoms.
Lane County Public Health (LCPH) has been working with local pediatric and family care practices, pharmacies, community-based organizations, and schools to develop a comprehensive strategy to meet the demand for COVID-19 vaccinations for children ages 5-11 following federal and state approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine.
Effective November 9th, all LCPH clinics will be by appointment only and LCPH's scheduling tool will be live by the morning of Friday, November 5, 2021. Parents and guardians can schedule appointments at: Get Vaccinated - Lane County or by calling (541) 682-1380.
To see a list of upcoming LCPH clinic dates/times, click on the "COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics for Kids 5-11" tab located at the bottom of LCPH's COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens web page.
Volunteering in CSD
Creswell School District welcomes and appreciates the many volunteers who help enrich our programs and make a difference for Creswell’s students. Before assisting in a school, volunteers must complete a criminal history verification form and, to adhere to state regulations, provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Signing up is easy. Simply stop by the Creswell School District Office at 998 West A Street to complete the background form and share proof of vaccination. Breanna Manzone will be happy to make a copy of your vaccination card and can answer any questions you may have. You can reach her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

National Principals Month
This is Summer Martin's first year as CES Assistant Principal. Because she believes deeply in the importance of education for all, she loves the fact that she gets to be part of that process and appreciates all aspects of the role. "I enjoy being a problem solver and helper which is basically the foundation of this position. Being a principal is so rewarding because I am able to help students, staff, families, and even community members daily." Thank you so much for your service to our educational community and students, Assistant Principal Martin!
