BROOKINGS, Ore. — With Governor Kate Brown's announcement last week that school districts can make their own decisions on in-person instruction, the Brookings-Harbor School District will begin transitioning toward hybrid in-person learning next week.

Superintendent David Marshall addressed the plan in a message to families on Thursday.

"We began Winter Break with hopes to bring students in-person and keep them in-person as much as possible in 2021 — we know that students benefit from a safe and consistent routine in the classroom with their teachers and support staff," Marshall said. "We now have an opportunity to begin that process."

Under the District's plan, kindergarten through 3rd grade students will begin in-person hybrid instruction next Monday, January 4. On Thursday, grades 4-6 and 9 will return. There are tentative plans in place for grades 7-8 and 10-12 to start during the week of January 11.

"Working together as a community, our choices and actions to slow the spread of COVID-19 can help keep students on campus and in class," Marshall continued. "A confirmed case of COVID-19 can require a class or even a grade to transition to Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) for two weeks."

Schools will still be operating under the guidelines of the Oregon Department of Education's "Ready Schools, Safe Learners" plan, which requires that students to meet in small cohorts, practice physical distancing, use face coverings, wash hands frequently, and work in sanitized spaces.

"You can help keep our students in school by keeping your child (or children) home if they or anyone in your household is sick and/or has COVID-19 symptoms," Marshall said. "If you are awaiting test results for a household member, please keep your child home until a negative result has been confirmed."
