Our hearts go out to those impacted by the violence and tragic deaths in Texas today. As caregivers, it can be hard to navigate such situations with young children. Remember, school counselors are on hand if needed. Here’s some resources to help at home: https://www.pbs.org/parents/thrive/helping-children-with-tragic-events-in-the-news https://www.hmhco.com/blog/talking-to-kids-about-scary-news

This afternoon (3/8/2022), after-school hours, we received numerous reports of a former student at Umatilla High School who had released a video of himself with a weapon and a threatening statement. Police were immediately contacted and responded. They confiscated weapons and equipment and trespassed and arrested the student. We appreciate the prompt response from the Umatilla Police Department in this situation. We also appreciate the fast reporting by students and parents of the threat. There is no reason to believe that there are any further threats at this time and school will resume tomorrow with normal operations. Esta tarde (03/08/2022), después del horario escolar, recibimos numerosos informes de un ex estudiante de la Escuela Preparatoria de Umatilla que había publicado un vídeo de sí mismo con un arma y una declaración amenazante. La policía fue contactada de inmediato y respondió. Confiscaron armas y equipo, allanaron y arrestaron al estudiante. Agradecemos la pronta respuesta del Departamento de Policía de Umatilla ante esta situación. También apreciamos la rápida denuncia de la amenaza por parte de estudiantes y padres. No hay razón para creer que hay más amenazas en este momento y la escuela se reanudará mañana con operaciones normales.

Today, the Oregon Health Authority announced that mask requirements for schools will cease March 31st, 2022. This means that we will be able to move forward with our original mask-optional plans for the year as we intended for the 2021-22 school year. The information and related requirements/details were just released today. We will work with staff over the next few weeks to finalize our mask optional plans and will have those out for public comment before the April 1st mask-optional implementation date. It is important to note that we’re still required to mask in school settings until April 1st. Please continue your patience with us we work to navigate this ever-changing landscape. We are excited to move forward with mask-optional options but want to make sure we have our plan fully prepared as there are many parts to the shift. Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Heidi Sipe, EdS Superintendent https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/ORDHS/bulletins/3098e7d
