Hybrid Learning Detail Sheet

Hello MVMS Families,


We are so excited to welcome your students on campus soon! Here is some information regarding our new Hybrid schedule that will start on April 19, 2021. If you have chosen to remain in CDL, you will continue to access your classes online.


While your students' teachers remain consistent and students will attend their courses in the same order, their lunch time has moved and the bell schedule has changed as a result. Please review this new Hybrid Bell Schedule with your student.


Staff will be leading orientation and welcoming activities with students on the first day back. We know all students, but especially 6th graders may be nervous, and we are ready to help them every step of the way!


When coming into school, students should bring:

  • 2-layer mask (gator style mouth coverings will need to be doubled up)

  • backpack or bag (this will stay with students at all times)

  • fully charged Chromebook and charger

  • course specific supplies used in CDL (watch for teacher information)

  • pencil or pen

  • water bottle (with your student’s name clearly written on it)

  • jacket or sweatshirt for outdoor activities

  • earbuds or headphones (labeled with your student’s name on them)

  • lunch box/bag (if your student does not plan to eat *lunch at school)

* All school lunches are free of charge for the duration of the current school year.

Binax Now Covid Testing in School

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) supports COVID-19 testing in public and private K-12 schools in Oregon for students and staff who display symptoms of COVID-19. The Beaverton School District has registered to have Abbott BinaxNOW rapid antigen testing available for students and staff who develop primary symptoms of COVID-19 at school. Primary symptoms of Covid-19 include:

  • New or different than usual shortness of breath

  • New or different than usual coughing

  • Fever of 100.4 or higher

  • New loss of taste or smell.


The Abbott BinaxNOW test will only be administered to students who have consent from their parent(s) or legal guardian on file. The student must be capable and willing to perform a nasal swab test independently. The parent(s) or guardian can decline testing and opt to test their child with a healthcare provider. If there is any doubt as to whether a specimen may be safely self-collected by an individual, they should be referred to their healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing. Positive test results will be shared with the Local Public Health Authority to assist in contact tracing.


If you would like your child to participate in this testing program, please complete and return the consent form to the school office. You can find the consent form at this link: https://www.beaverton.k12.or.us/departments/public-safety/emergency-preparedness/coronavirus/return-to-in-person-instruction/covid-19-health-safety-guidance under the COVID-19 Testing Information. For further information on the Abbot BinaxNOW rapid antigen test see the following link: FDA information on BinaxNOW test.
