How does Umatilla County's increase to High Risk impact our schools? We continue with our current plans, our current safety protocols and our current monitoring. We only need to change status and plans if we have school transmission and outbreaks. Thank you for continuing to monitor your students before sending them to school to help us maintain safe learning environments. We appreciate your partnership!

In hopeful anticipation of the Governor's guidance for schools becoming advisory instead of mandatory and liability insurance updates passing during the short legislative session, the District worked with Umatilla County Health last week on opening plans. Now that the legislature has passed liability protections for schools and the Governor has revised her guidance to advisory, we are approved to begin Limited In Person Instruction January 19th for those who already registered. Soon after, we expect to expand LIPI to additional students and/or transition into our Hybrid learning plan. All plans will follow the Ready Schools, Safe Learners requirements. We are excited to welcome students back to school soon! Parents who registered for LIPI will receive updated guidance the week of January 4th with more specific information.
