Dear Ninety-One Community,


Happy New Year! This week has been filled with excitement as we welcome our students back. On Monday our staff were trained on an assessment tool to identify students' present instructional levels in both Math and Reading. We will be using the MAP Growth as a pilot along with one other elementary school in our district. As a Principal I love knowing where our students are at instructionally to best apply resources, celebrate growth, and to best meet our students' learning needs. Please let me know if you have any questions.


We are off to a great start.


Go Bulldogs!


Also please see notification below.


Warmly,


Joanna Tobin, Principal


Notification/ Notificación


Notification of a Positive COVID Case


Dear Staff and Families of Ninety-One School,


Recently, we were notified that a person at Ninety-One School has been diagnosed with COVID-19. As members of the school community, we understand that this might raise concerns alongside a caring response. We are working closely with the Clackamas County Health Authority.


Anyone who had close contact with this individual will be notified by email directly with instructions about quarantining. Close contact is someone who was likely to have been within 6 feet of the infected individual or within 3 feet for students for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more. Due to privacy rights, we cannot share any additional information regarding the individual.


The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is through staying home when ill, wearing face coverings, physical distancing, getting vaccinated, if eligible and practicing good health hygiene habits. Be sure to wash your hands frequently with soap and water, cover your coughs and sneezes, and avoid contact with people who have signs of illness. Get plenty of rest, exercise, and eat a healthy diet. Protect the community by following the Governor’s safety requirements. Wearing cloth face coverings reduces the spread of the virus.


More information can be found on the Oregon Department of Education’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners page and the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19 website.


If you have questions, please contact me at joanna.tobin@canby.k12.or.us.



Sincerely,


Joanna Tobin, Principal

Notificación de un caso de COVID-19


Estimado personal y familias de la escuela Ninety-One School,


Recientemente, nos notificaron que una persona en la escuela Ninety-One School ha sido diagnosticada con COVID-19. Como miembros de la comunidad escolar, entendemos que esto puede suscitar preocupaciones junto con una respuesta solidaria. Estamos trabajando estrechamente con el departamento de salud local.



Cualquier persona que haya tenido un contacto cercano con esta persona será notificada por correo electrónico directamente con instrucciones sobre la cuarentena. Un contacto cercano es alguien que probablemente haya estado a menos de 6 pies del individuo O dentro de 3 pies para los estudiantes infectado durante un total acumulado de 15 minutos o más. Debido a los derechos de privacidad, no podemos compartir ninguna información adicional sobre el individuo.



La mejor manera de prevenir la propagación de COVID-19 es mediante el uso de cubrebocas, el distanciamiento físico, la vacunación si cualifica y la práctica de buenos hábitos higiénicos de salud. Asegúrese de lavarse las manos con frecuencia con agua y jabón, cúbrase la boca al toser y estornudar, y evite el contacto con personas que tengan signos de enfermedad. Descanse mucho, haga ejercicio y tenga una dieta saludable. Proteja a la comunidad siguiendo los requisitos de seguridad de la Gobernadora. El uso de protectores faciales de tela reduce la propagación del virus y ayuda a evitar que quienes tienen el virus, pero no tienen síntomas, lo transmitan a otros.


Puede encontrar más información en la página web Oregon Department of Education’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners page y en el sitio web Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19.


Si tiene preguntas, por favor comuníquese conmigo en joanna.tobin@canby.k12.or.us.


Atentamente,


Joanna Tobin, Principal

There is now a "Test to Stay" option and a shortened 7-day quarantine option in addition to our current options.


Note that the new Test to Stay requires parent permission for testing at school. Please fill out the permission form linked below and return it to the front office.
