November 17, 2020 Dear Sutherlin School District Families, We know this is a hard time for our community and our hearts go out to those who are ill. The safety of our students and staff continue to be our number one priority. Despite the increase in COVID-19 cases in Douglas County, Sutherlin School District is able to continue to keep schools open under the Safe Harbor Clause outlined in the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance. At this time, all Sutherlin schools will continue to provide on-site instruction to students through at least November 25th. However, the district will closely monitor the status of COVID-19 in the county/school district and future decisions will be made on a weekly basis. To be clear, we will continue to offer on-site instruction to be determined weekly as we move towards Christmas Break. We’re grateful to our teachers, instructional assistants and substitute teachers who offer ways for students to stay engaged in effective learning. To provide increased disinfection protocols during in-person learning, our district has recently added additional custodial services. In addition, extra bus drivers were hired to help keep our students and staff safe. It is important to note, while there have been three students who tested positive for COVID-19, it was determined that the students contracted the virus outside of the school setting and there have been no additional cases as a result of attending school within our district. We want our community to protect themselves against COVID-19. Here are ways to help protect your family and others: • People who are sick should stay home from work or school and avoid other people until they are better. • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. • Wear face coverings in public to help prevent the spread of the virus. • Maintain a distance of six feet between people outside your household. • Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes out, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone's right to privacy. If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19, please contact your healthcare provider or call the Douglas Public Health Network hotline at 541-464-6550, seven days a week between 8 am - 5:00 pm. Additional information about metrics can be found on the Oregon Department of Education’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners website and the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19 page. Sincerely, Terry Prestianni, Superintendent Sutherlin School District

November 4, 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 Sutherlin Middle 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
