Attention Elementary Familiies: As you are aware, limited on-site instruction for grades K-5 begins on Monday, Oct. 19. In order to maintain social distancing we will be utilizing parent drop off and pick up lines similar to those used at very large schools. There will be a designated drop off location in front of the office where one car will drop off at a time in the order in which they arrive. Parents should stay in their cars and students should be ready to unload quickly once they enter the drop off location. Staff members will be waiting to assist your student in joining their teacher. For students attending from 8-10, drop off will be from 7:50 to 8. For students attending from 1-3, drop off will be from 12:50 to 1. Earlier drop off will not be permitted. Pick up will work in the same way from 10-10:10 in the morning and 3-3:10 in the afternoon. Don’t forget to check the schedule that you recently received in the mail for special instructions from your student’s teacher about what to bring to school and what to leave at home. Please remember that you must perform an at-home health screening on your student before sending them to school and that face coverings are required. Thank you for your cooperation.

Attention K-5 Families: Our elementary team in Prospect is exploring the idea of bringing students back for limited in person instruction. We are able to bring back 10 students at a time per class for two hours a day. Before we begin making plans to do this, we wanted to hear from you and see if this is something you would be in support of. Please respond to this survey by Sunday as we will be reviewing the survey results next Monday (9/28) to determine if this is a direction we will be going. Thank you for your help in this matter. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScGaCdMSbwBvkPMRSoMNPfWFq1DmIJrAZKiDb7ho_nuQwudhw/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1&flr=0&gxids=7757

We would like to thank everyone again for filling out our reopening survey. Survey results showed that 75% of our families want to return to onsite learning. As you know, it has been our intention to bring back all students for full-time onsite learning this coming school year. Unfortunately, Governor Brown released metric requirements last week making it difficult for any student in Jackson County to be onsite right now. As a result, we are now planning to start the school year with a schoolwide comprehensive distance learning model. As soon as the state of Oregon allows us to return to onsite learning we will do so. Expect to hear from us in the coming weeks with further details on our plans for distance learning.
There will be a 6-12 social studies curriculum meeting on Tuesday, July 14 at 9am in the media center. Students and families are welcome to participate. Masks required.
