Weekly Update:

Each week, we look at the Oregon Reopening Metrics Dashboard to determine if/when we can return to on-site instruction in a Hybrid model. State data for Oregon and Lane County has been updated based on the last 14-day period (1/10-1/23).  The data link for Lane County is attached below this message. Based on this data; The absolute case count is 284 cases; The positivity rate is 3.6%. This is an increase in cases over the previous two week period. Lane county remains in the On-Site and Hybrid Transition Model (Orange) zone. 

What does this mean? 

Under the new metrics, here, we are able to add more students for Limited In Person Instruction (LIPI), while we prepare our plans for Hybrid learning.  Therefore, on January 27, grade 5 students will return to school for LIPI on alternating A/B days. Those who chose to continue with online learning may do so.
