A Letter from Dr. Curtis

Dear Families, You have been in our hearts and minds as you deal with the impact of the pandemic, fire, evacuation and breathing unhealthy air for several days. We are hoping this letter finds all of you safe and healthy. Because staff have also been dealing with these challenges, we closed offices and buildings today to give them a day to take care of themselves and families. They are eager to resume with the planning, conferences, materials distributions, preparations and professional development tomorrow. However, we need more time to adjust conference schedules and meet with families. Therefore we are delaying the start of school. The revised first day of school will be September 28. 9/28: Grades K-1 start in hybrid, grades 2-12 start in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) 10/12: Grade 2 starts hybrid 10/26: Grade 3 starts hybrid 11/2: Grades 4-12 start hybrid All other dates on the academic calendar will remain the same (conferences, beginning/end of terms, etc.) Our staff will be connecting with families in school buildings or online. We will only hold conferences outside if parents and staff are comfortable with meeting outdoors and the air quality index indicates that Cottage Grove is at 150 or below on the Air Quality Index (AQI) as reported by Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA). All schools and district buildings HVAC systems are running at optimal levels regarding smoke and air flow and will be checked twice a day. This will continue until outdoor AQI is below 150. Sports activities will not resume until AQI is below 100 as reported by LRAPA. We apologize for this delay and hope that as you connect with our teachers, they will re-energize you for the start of the new school year. These heroes are eager for this connection. Be safe, be well, Yvonne
