Comprehensive distance learning to continue into second quarter
Based on the current Clackamas County health metrics, West Linn-Wilsonville School District has decided to extend comprehensive distance learning into the second quarter, which runs from Nov. 10 to Feb. 5.
Superintendent Kathy Ludwig said in a letter to the West Linn-Wilsonville community that this decision is subject to change if the county reaches the current health metric targets or if the state adjusts the targets to make returning to in-person learning easier.
Still, the district is preparing to bring more students in for limited in-person instruction, an exception to the health metrics for students who need supplemental in-person support.
"We continue to refine practices and adjust health protocols with the goal of slowly increasing the number of students coming on school campuses under these circumstances," Ludwig said in her letter.
Additionally, Ludwig said the district is continuing to plan for "a safe return to in-person learning" for kindergarten through third-grade students. The county has yet not met the metrics required for this type of instruction.
