Madras Elementary Families,
We are excited to invite students back on campus starting Monday, January 11th.  In the 2nd page of this letter the calendar shows the plan for each grade level for the month of January. All Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade students will  be welcomed back January 11th-January 14th for Limited In Person Instruction (LIPI).  During this week, 4th and 5th Grade students will continue to be in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). In January, each Friday will be structured the same way. All students will have CDL from 8:30AM-10:30AM, with no CDL/LIPI for the afternoon session.

Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) will have a change in time to allow for Limited In Person Instruction (LIPI). Online learning in the morning will start at 8:30AM and end around 10:30AM. LIPI is currently scheduled for 11:50AM-1:50PM. We will begin to open the doors for student entry by 11:45AM and students will begin to exit starting at 1:45PM to ensure social distancing. Students and staff will continue to practice social distancing, wearing a mask, and hand hygiene when learning is happening on campus. Lunch will not be provided at school. Meal service will continue to be provided. ( https://www.jcsd.k12.or.us/fs-meal-program/ )
We have tried to create a plan that allows our students to safely transition back to full time in person learning by February. In the coming days, there will be more communication about the options available for students and families. As we all are learning, this plan is subject to change. We greatly appreciate your flexibility, and know that Madras Elementary has felt an outpouring of support for your child and our staff. 

Respectfully,
Chris Wyland
