3/18/2020 School Closure Update
March 18, 2020
Dear Parents and Community members,
Our community, our state, and much of the world are now dealing with an unprecedented public health crisis. Yesterday, Governor Kate Brown issued an Executive Order extending the closure of all public schools through April 28th. You can read the Order here. We appreciate your patience as we work to mitigate the impact on our students and community.
In our district, we will work to make the following resources available during the extended closure:
- Breakfast and lunch for all children 18 and under (we are working on a plan to provide additional support including meal delivery service, stay tuned)
- Supplemental learning (ie. e-learning, packets, additional resources, etc.) will begin for all students K-12 starting April 1st.
- We are trying to come up with a plan for childcare for employees in essential positions (ie. hospital workers, first responders, etc., stay tuned)
Over the next several days we will be making phone contact with families to engage you in a discussion to determine your families specific needs. If you don’t hear from us prior to March 31st please contact us at 503-394-3261.
We are in uncharted waters, but please know that Scio School District, in collaboration with local and state authorities, is doing its best to support our broader community as the reality of this unprecedented crisis continues to evolve.
