Comprehensive distance learning to continue into second quarter
Based on the current Clackamas County health metrics, the Lake Oswego School District has decided to extend comprehensive distance learning into the second quarter, which begins Nov. 9.
In a letter to the community, Superintendent Lora de la Cruz said the district will remain open to bringing students back for in-person learning when it's safe to do so.
In the letter, she said that Oregon school guidance may change due to public health agencies researching COVID-19 data from districts that have students in schools for limited in-person or hybrid schedules.
"Should state guidelines be updated to allow for in-person instruction, LOSD plans to return students to school in a gradual, phased-in manner to ensure the health and safety of our community," de la Cruz said.
Current guidance allows LOSD to continue limited in-person instruction, an exception to the health metrics for students who need supplemental in-person support. The district will gradually expand the number of students receiving limited in-person instruction.
