Elementary Schools: Hybrid Instruction
As long as we continue to meet the advisory health metrics set by the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Health Authority (≤ 350 positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 over the previous two-week period in Washington and Multnomah Counties), we will begin Hybrid Instruction (part in-person/part online) in our elementary schools, starting with Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade. The earliest date that students will return to school buildings for Hybrid Instruction will be April 5. After we’ve had a smooth transition with our youngest students, we’ll consider bringing back grades 3-5, possibly one grade per week.
If you’re not comfortable sending your students back for in-person instruction, they can continue to remain in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). However, no student — whether CDL or Hybrid — will be guaranteed the same teacher as the one instructing them now. Again, please refer to the video for a full explanation.
All elementary families must choose whether to remain in CDL or move to Hybrid. This decision will apply to the rest of the school year; no switches will be allowed. You’ll receive instructions on how to declare your choice during the first week of February. All choices must be made by February 15.
Kindergarten Orientation for 2021-2022 School Year
- Thursday, February 25 at 5:00 p.m. (via Zoom). This event will be a general school overview, meet the principal, and provide information on registration.
- Thursday, May 20 at 5:00 p.m. (TBD - in person, if possible, or via Zoom). This will be a traditional orientation event. You will meet the principal and kindergarten teachers, learn more specific information about a day in the life of a kindergarten student and obtain information on helping your child be ready for kindergarten.
Parents are encouraged to attend both events, if possible.
Online registration will begin at the end of January.
