1/5/2020 Good afternoon Sutherlin Students, Staff and Families, I am happy to announce that Sutherlin School District will be returning to in-person instruction thanks to improved countywide metrics as well as changes from the State. Grades PK-5 will return on Monday January 11th and secondary students grades 6-12 will return on Tuesday January 19th. Grades 6-12 will return on the A/B schedule as prior to Thanksgiving. If your student was enrolled in comprehensive distance learning prior to Thanksgiving break, they will remain in distance learning. Students who were attending school in-person prior to Thanksgiving break will return to school in-person on the above-mentioned dates. Home meal deliveries will continue for distance learning students; Please remember to order through SchoolPay. In-person students will have meals served at school, but still need to order. We thank you for your patience over the past few weeks, and we look forward to seeing more students on campus. Terry Prestianni, Superintendent

Good Afternoon. As you can imagine, we are receiving a high number of questions from parents and staff regarding when the Sutherlin School District will return to onsite instruction. At this time, we do not have a clear directive from the Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority. Sutherlin School District will continue with our current educational model through the first week of January for all grade levels (K-12). During the first week in January, district administration will review state level guidance and provide families an update. Our Administrative Staff, School Staff, and School Board is committed to returning back to onsite instruction as soon as possible in a safe manner. As a district, we also don't want to put families or staff in a situation of moving between CDL and In-Person instruction each time state guidance/metrics changes. We know COVID-19 has created hardships for families, students, and staff. We appreciate your ongoing patience as we move into the new year. I wish all families a safe and joyful holiday. Terry Prestianni Superintendent

November 24, 2020 Dear Sutherlin School District Staff and Families, Sutherlin School District is taking steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff. A student at Sutherlin Middle School has tested positive for COVID-19, but has not been in school since last week. We are working closely with the Douglas Public Health Network to respond to this news and protect the health of our community. Sutherlin Middle School is canceling all on-site classes for Wednesday November 25th due to lack of coverage for quarantined staff. All other Sutherlin Schools will continue with classes as planned. We have begun notifying staff and parents of the children in the cohort that a student tested positive, asking them to quarantine and monitor for symptoms. We’re providing quarantine guidance and informing parents of exposed children that someone from the DPHN will be in daily telephone contact to provide additional monitoring. All schools in Sutherlin School District will return to Comprehensive Distance Learning Monday, November 30. We encourage our community to follow and maintain the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education guidelines; namely handwashing, staying home when sick, physical distancing, mask wearing and practicing disinfecting protocols. We understand families are concerned and our hearts go out to everyone directly affected. 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. If you have concerns or questions about COVID-19, please call the Douglas Public Health Network hotline at 541-464-6550, seven days a week between 8 am - 5:00 pm. Sincerely, Terry Prestianni, Sutherlin School District Superintendent

November 23, 2020 Dear Sutherlin School District Staff and Families, Due to the increase in local COVID-19 cases in Douglas County, as well as staffing difficulties related to obtaining substitutes, our school district has decided to transition students to Comprehensive Distance Learning beginning November 30. With staff following protocols for staying home when sick and quarantining when directed, it has become very difficult to continue staffing our buildings. We do not take this decision lightly and it was a difficult one to make, but hope to return to onsite instruction as soon as possible. Additional information and support will be provided to families during remote learning. We’re grateful to our educators who are prepared to provide students with consistent learning opportunities. We will contact you as soon as we have information about when schools will reopen to in-person instruction. 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. We understand that this circumstance is difficult on the community. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Terry Prestianni, Superintendent Sutherlin School District

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

As COVID-19 cases continue to increase in Douglas County, students, parents and staff are raising questions about the necessity of returning to a Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). On Monday, November 16th the latest county metric numbers will be released, and we will know more about the future of onsite instruction at that time. If the number of COVID-19 cases is at the level requiring a return to a Comprehensive Distance Learning instruction model, students, staff, and parents will be notified and a plan for a smooth transition will be announced. Please be aware that the metrics are now determined on a consecutive two-week period, so if we are fortunate enough to meet the metrics on November 16th to allow us to continue our current model of instruction, we will still face the same scenario for the following week. Student and staff safety is our number 1 priority and we will continue to take all measures possible to educate students safely during this pandemic. Sutherlin School District is committed to keeping as many students as possible in “onsite instruction” while providing a quality comprehensive distance learning model for all others. As always, thank you for your support and understanding. Sutherlin School District

Clarification about COVID-19 case count
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 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.
