District Seeking Members for Facilities Committee (Umatilla) – The Umatilla School District is about to embark on planning for the future and is asking the community to join them. The district is forming a long-range Facilities Committee which will examine facilities across the district and develop a 10-year plan for what the district should focus on regarding future facility needs. The district has hired the Wenaha Group to guide them through the facility process. According to Heath Gardner, senior project engineer at Wenaha, the facilities committee will ideally consist of a cross-section of community members, including district staff, parents, business owners and others. “Joining the committee is a good way to be involved with the school district, give back to your community and have a say in your taxes,” Gardner said. The Facilities Committee will meet once a month for about six months. When the long-range plan is completed, the committee will make a recommendation to the Umatilla SD School Board about the possibility of going out for a bond. Anyone interested in joining the Facilities Committee should contact Superintendent Heidi Sipe by calling the District Office at 541-922-6500 or sipeh@umatillasd.org.

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!
