509J Will Open Schools in the Fall
Jefferson County School District 509J and other school districts in Oregon received guidance yesterday from the Oregon Department of Education for reopening schools next fall. The District is already developing the first in a series of surveys for family members to complete to help inform the plan for opening schools on September 8, 2020. Families should plan to receive the first survey next week or they can access the survey on the District website.
District and school leaders have been planning for the last few weeks for safety and cleaning precautions which will be put in place for students and staff. 509J will continue to collaborate with the Jefferson County Health Department in order to open schools while continuing to follow health protocols. District leadership is confident that students will be able to return to classrooms and will develop additional options for some students.
