Mask Ok

Updated: 7/29/2021 11:58 am When the state mandate sunsets, we will resume our mask-optional plans.

Dear Parents, 

We've received many questions regarding fall of 2021. The video linked here (English Spanish) gives a broad overview regarding schedule, masks, safety precautions, services, summer food EBT cards, and more. If you'd prefer to review a powerpoint instead, you may view the presentation used in the video (English Spanish). 

As we learned last year, plans are subject to change. Cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in our community, county, and state and may cause changes as the school year comes closer and throughout the year. We will do our best to provide as much stability and parent choice as we are able. We will communicate as quickly and efficiently as possible.  I appreciate your patience and understanding with the various changes and challenges in the past year and appreciate your continued understanding in the year to come. None of this is easy, but the Umatilla community proves time and time again that we value students and work together to put students first. 

I am looking forward to a successful year ahead. As we continue to finalize more detailed plans, we'll be sure to update our website as well so you have all the information you need to make the best decisions possible for your student and your family.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at

Heidi Sipe, EdS
