ROGUE RIVER, Ore--Due to multiple quarantines of key staff at the Jr/Sr High School, the Rogue River School District says they will postpone the start of the Jr/Sr High School for one week. The new start date for our middle and high school students is Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
Rogue River Elementary School and South Valley Academy will still have school as planned and will begin tomorrow morning, August 30, 2021.
Superintendent Patrick Lee says that the decision was incredibly difficult to make on short notice, but as the weekend progressed, more quarantines made it clear that they would not have the staff we needed at RRJSHS to have an orderly and strong start to the year.
Later this afternoon or evening the school district says that parents should receive more detailed information from the leaders of RRJSHS regarding student registration, the start of the school year, sports and more.
There will also be administrative staff available at the Jr/Sr High School throughout the week to help parents with any questions or concerns that they may have.
