November 1, 2020 School District Responds to Positive COVID-19 Case(s) The Sutherlin School District is taking steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff. A Sutherlin School District student at East Primary School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are working closely with the Douglas Public Health Network to respond to this news and protect the health of our community. We are taking steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff. As soon as the Douglas Public Health Network informed us that a student in our district tested positive for COVID-19, we started notifying staff, and parents of the children in the cohort that a student tested positive, asking them to quarantine for 14 days and monitor for symptoms. We provided quarantine guidance and informed parents of exposed children that someone from the DPHN will be in daily telephone contact to provide additional monitoring. We will continue to follow and maintain the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education guidelines; namely practicing handwashing, physical distancing to the degree we can, requiring people wear masks inside the building, and upholding cleaning and disinfecting protocols. At this time, in-person learning will resume for the students and staff who are not quarantined. We understand families are concerned. We will keep families and the school community updated with any new information as it becomes available, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone's right to privacy. Terry Prestianni, Superintendent

Dear families of students and staff at East Sutherlin Primary School. We were notified by Douglas Public Health Network and Dr. Bob Dannehoffer, our Douglas County Public Health Officer (and local Pediatrician), that we have had one student test positive for COVID-19 at Sutherlin East Primary School. We are working very closely with local public health and The Oregon Health Authority to notify parents of the children in the cohort that the child that tested positive was in and are asking them to quarantine for 14 days and monitor for symptoms. “This is a great example of a school doing everything right regarding student cohorts, reducing risk and mitigating transmission of COVID-19 in a school setting. School officials are working very closely with DPHN and myself to care for the one positive case and advise parents, families and staff that are close contacts. We believe the risk is low to the school community and DPHN remains available to support the families that are quarantining.” Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer, Douglas County Public Health Officer If your child was in the same cohort and needs to quarantine, you would have been notified by school officials today, Sunday September 27th. If you have concerns or questions about COVID-19, please call the Douglas Public Health Network hotline at 541-464-6550, 7 days a week between 8-5:00 pm.

Good morning Sutherlin Students and Parents, We had the opportunity to meet with the Oregon Department of Education this morning and have confirmed that our district can continue with the re-opening plan that we issued earlier this month. I have attached a link to that plan and we will continue to follow it unless the number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 in Douglas County rises above 30 for two weeks in a row. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Go Bulldogs! SSD re-opening calendar https://5il.co/lgv8

Good Afternoon Parents and Students, Due to the current hazardous air quality and the unpredictability of it improving, Sutherlin School District will have no onsite classes this week. All Sutherlin Schools will be using Comprehensive Distance Learning until Monday September 21st. Parents with children in Kindergarten- 3rd grade will be contacted by their teachers to introduce the communication and learning platforms to be used this year. We have full intension to return to onsite instruction for K-3 next week if the air quality improves. At this time Sutherlin School District has met the metrics outlined by the Department of Education to begin bringing students in grades 4-12 back on campus for onsite instruction. The design of our buildings and their aging infrastructure make it difficult for us to bring all students back immediately. Therefore, we are implementing the following re-opening plan to bring students back in a slow and steady fashion that allows everyone to resume onsite learning safely. Week of Grade Level and Instruction Method Sept 14 K-3 Distance Learning, 4-12 Distance Learning Sept 21 K-3 Full Onsite, 4-12 CDL with afternoon labs and onsite special program Oct 5 Grade 4 and 5 added to Full Onsite Instruction Oct 12 Grade 6 added to Full Onsite Instruction Oct 19 Grade 7 added to Full Onsite Instruction Oct 26 Grade 8 added to Full Onsite Instruction Nov 2 Grades 9-12 added to Full Onsite Instruction As always, thank you for your support and please call us if you have any questions.
