A Day in life of an Elementary Student in In-Person Hybrid Instruction
Secondary Hybrid Deadline - Today
As a reminder, all middle, high, option and K-8 (Grades 6-8 ONLY) families need to make a choice for their students — whether to remain in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) or move to In-Person Hybrid Instruction, tentatively scheduled to begin on April 19 (middle schools) and April 22 (option and high schools). If you don’t make a decision, your student automatically will remain in CDL.
To make your decision: Go to our webpage for Return to In-Person Instruction and follow the directions. All decisions must be made by today.
Change in School Calendar
In preparation for the start of Hybrid and per our previous agreement with our employee association, the Beaverton Education Association (BEA), teachers will be engaging in three staff development work days prior to the start of Hybrid. During that time, staff will be:
Reviewing new health and safety protocols required by Ready Schools Safe Learners
Setting up classroom and other spaces to comply with state requirements
Planning and preparing synchronous/asynchronous lessons (elementary) or simultaneous instruction lessons (secondary)
Receiving additional technology training, as needed (secondary)
Elementary students, middle school students, and students enrolled at Rachel Carson, CTP and ACE will not have school in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) on these days - March 29, 30 and 31. On April 1 and 2, students will return to CDL.
Option and high school students will not have school on these days - April 19, 20 and 21. On April 22, all students will have a full day of In-Person Hybrid Instruction and CDL, concurrently with their teachers.
FLEX Online School will have normal school hours on March 29-31 and April 19-21.
We encourage you to read our FAQ regarding our return to In-Person Hybrid Instruction and our webpage detailing the health and safety protocols that have been put in place to protect both staff and students. We look forward to welcoming students back to our school buildings!
Children must be up-to-date on their immunizations before returning to In-Person Hybrid Instruction. If students fail to get their proper immunizations, students won’t be allowed on campus for any reason (no Hybrid, no athletics and no school events) until they’re up-to-date.
Library Book Bus - Last Day of Service
With our school buses returning to service for In-Person Hybrid Instruction, the Library Book Bus will be suspended. The last day will be on March 17. Library Services will work with schools to facilitate other ways for students to access library books.

The City of Beaverton wants your ideas!
Name the Public Safety Center plaza.
The City of Beaverton is inviting community members to submit their suggestions for the name of the new outdoor public plaza at Beaverton’s Public Safety Center, which also features the recently installed public art sculptures by artist Blessing Hancock. This is a unique opportunity for public participation in shaping a new community space.
Ideas can be submitted either online at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/PSCPlaza or by calling 503-526-2543. Any suggestion is welcome and can include a Beaverton resident (deceased or living), tribal name to honor the indigenous lands on which the building rests, or general suggestion. A detailed explanation to give context for consideration is requested. Submissions are due by Wednesday, March 31.
A committee of volunteers will review the public submissions and make a selection of 3-5 names for City Council consideration in June. An unveiling event will be held in August (either virtual, in-person, or a combination of both) to celebrate the name selection and the installation of public art sculptures in the plaza.
