District updates community on summer services
In a letter to the Lake Oswego School District community, Superintendent Lora de la Cruz detailed the summer services LOSD offers as well as the next steps for reopening school facilities. "How we in LOSD reopen, and what protocols need to be followed, will depend on which phase our county is in at that time," she said in her message to families.
The district expects to have a more detailed plan for instruction in the fall later this month.
LOSD is extending its grab-and-go meal service for all students through June 29. The pickup schedule through June 10 is Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:30-11:30 a.m., at Lake Grove, Lake Oswego, Lakeridge Middle and Lakeridge High Schools. Starting Monday, June 15, meals will be available for pickup once a week on Mondays, 10:30-11:30 a.m., from one location at Lake Oswego High School. Students will be able to pick up to five days of meals on this single day.
LOSD is providing emergency childcare for grades K-5, and children of essential workers are prioritized. If enrollment space is available, the district may begin to serve families who return to work in the phased reopening. Child care will be consistent with the guidance and requirements provided by the Early Learning Division and statewide standards for child care operations. Child care will be a coordinated service and registration and payment for specific blocks of days and times are required. Space is limited to 10 children per cohort. Due to Early Learning Division requirements, children in LOSD childcare will not be able to participate in outside enrichment activities such as the ones offered through Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation during their time in district care.
Community School K-12 summer programs are canceled for June and July. Families who have registered will be contacted to process full refunds. The district does not know, at this time, if classes will be offered in August.
LOSD athletic facilities will be open Monday, July 6. Starting July 6, school fields, tracks and courts for recreational use. Individuals are responsible for abiding by school rules, and are personally responsible for following all guidelines in the state and county's phased reopening plan.
Lake Grove Swim Park, however, is off campus and can reopen after Clackamas County enters phase 2 of its reopening plan.
LOSD's indoor pool will remain closed until further notice.
