Dear Junction City Families,  
 
On October 30th, 2020, the Oregon Department of Education in collaboration with the Oregon Health Authority released updated guidance for staff and families regarding the use of face coverings. Face coverings are still required for all staff and students in order to slow the spread of Covid and to keep all of our community safe. However, face shields can only be worn by students and staff in students in the following instances:
 
  • Face shields are an acceptable alternative when a student has a disability or medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask or face covering, or when people need to see the student's mouth and tongue motions in order to communicate.
 
  The updated guidance also states:
  • Face coverings should be worn both indoors and outdoors, including during outdoor recess.
  • Group "mask breaks" or "full classroom mask breaks" are not allowed. Individual mask breaks are still allowed by using the established protocols.
 
Please only send your child to school with a face mask unless one of these applies to your child. If you have questions or concerns regarding the use of a face shield, please contact your child’s school.   As we head into the cold and flu season, we want to remind all families of the importance of keeping your child home when they are not feeling well. In order to maintain a high level of wellness at school and to be in compliance with COVID-19 guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Department of Education we are asking for parent/guardian assistance.   If your student answers YES to any of the following questions, please do not send them to school including Limited In Person Instruction, Clubs and Athletics.  Then, please contact the school health room to determine when your student may be able to return to school.  
 
  • Have they, or anyone they have been in close contact with, been diagnosed with COVID-19 or placed in quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19 within the last two weeks?
  • Have they been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official in the last two weeks?
  • Do they have a fever (temperature over 100.4° F) without having taken any fever-reducing medications?
  • Do they have muscle or body aches or chills?
  • Do they have a cough? If student has a history of asthma, please contact the school health room to develop an individual health plan.
  • Do they have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
  • Do they have a loss of smell or taste?
  • Are they experiencing any gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting and/or diarrhea?
 
If your student has any of the following symptoms, we strongly recommend keeping them home until they feel better.  If you have questions, please contact the school health room.
 
  • Do they have a sore throat? ● Do they have nasal congestion or a runny nose? ● Do they have a headache?

Please remember, all of us have a role in keeping everyone safe. Please continue to stay home if you feel sick, wear a face mask, wash hands often, and maintain physical distance from those outside your household. Our ability to have students in schools depends on preventing the spread of the virus in our community.
 
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work together during this challenging situation.  
 
Sincerely,  
 
Junction City School District

Estimadas Familias de Junction City, 
 
El 30 de octubre de 2020, el Departamento de Educación de Oregon en colaboración con la Autoridad de Salud de Oregon publicó una guía actualizada para el personal y las familias sobre el uso de cubrebocas. Los cubrebocas todavía se requieren para todos del personal y los estudiantes para reducir la expansión del Covid y para mantener a toda nuestra comunidad segura. Sin embargo, los protectores faciales solamente se pueden poner por estudiantes y personal en los siguientes casos:
 
  • Los protectores faciales son una alternativa aceptable cuando el/la estudiante tiene una discapacidad o condición médica que lo/la previene de ponerse una máscara o cubreboca, o cuando personas necesitan ver los movimientos de la boca y lengua del estudiante para comunicarse. 
 
La guia actualizada también indica:
  • Los cubrebocas se deben poner en ambos adentro y afuera, incluyendo durante el recreo afuera. 
  • Grupos de ”Descansos de máscara” o “descansos de máscara con la clase entera” está prohibido. Descansos de máscara individuales todavía son permitidos al usar los protocolos establecidos. 
 
Favor de solamente enviar a su hijo/a a la escuela con un cubreboca al menos que una de estas se apliquen a su hijo/a. Si usted tiene preguntas o preocupaciones sobre el uso del protector facial, favor de contactar la escuela de su hijo/a.

2020-2021 Family Forecasting/Input Survey Form
 
Dear Parents,

Thank you for your continued support, patience and flexibility as we worked together to provide Distance Learning to your child(ren) during the COVID 19 school closure this spring.  We appreciate everything you have done during these stressful and challenging times; we could not have done our work without your support.  Thank you!

 As we look forward to the future and the 2020-21 school year, we know that all Oregon schools will be faced with making many difficult decisions, some of them related to budget reductions due to the impact of the COVID 19 shutdown.  While we want to make the best decisions for all our students, staff, and community with the least amount of impact, we know that we must put the health and safety of our students and staff first and foremost.  We will be using the Oregon Department of Education’s guidance document, “Ready Schools, Safe Learners” as we plan our return to school for the 2020-21 school year and will welcome the engagement of our staff, parents and other stakeholders in this planning process.  We intend to provide ongoing updates and communication through the summer months. 

 We also need your help in determining how many students we will have attending our Junction City Schools (LES/TES/OMS/JCHS/JCOnline), and what transportation and other needs our families might have next year.  Please take a moment to complete the following google form (complete one form for each of your children) to help us plan more effectively for the upcoming school year.  It takes a community effort to help plan for our children’s future- your input is a vitally important part of that, and is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!! 

 The survey can be found at the following link: https://forms.gle/ktCev3AVh127nGZ57

If you would like a paper copy of the survey, or have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Stephanie White at 541-998-6311.
