Good luck to our MS Boys basketball team as they host Yoncalla today at 4:30. The game will be held at the outdoor court at the grade school. The weather may cause us to move inside to the high school gym but that call will be made at 2:00 p.m. today and posted if there are changes to the grade school outdoor court location.
A message from Supt. Andy Boe: For the week of 5/24 all spectators at indoor events will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. The District does not have the resources to check and verify the vaccination status of visitors as required by the new OHA rule. When more clarity becomes available we will adjust our operation.
GOOD LUCK to our Forestry team, Camille, Randall, Jasman and Meleka, as they compete at UCC today!
GOOD LUCK!!! Margaret Byle, Rylee Williamson and Coach Martin at the 1A Track and Field State Championship this weekend! We are so proud of you! GO ELKS!
From Supt. Andy Boe We received new guidance from ODE this afternoon. The Elkton School District will be implementing these changes effective tomorrow (5/20/21): --Students and staff who are outdoors and socially distanced are not required to wear a mask. (See “Outdoor” guidance below for clarification) --Indoor mask mandates are still in place. We will be adding other changes as we receive them. Please be patient as we process the information and get it to you. Below is an excerpt from the document that we received from ODE explaining some of the changes. --RSSL Updates: Outdoors: Students, staff, volunteers, and visitors are not required to wear face coverings outdoors (including, but not limited to: Outdoor PE, outdoor music, recess, and arrival & dismissal). Until additional updates are provided, all RSSL physical distancing and other related requirements still apply. School Staff Indoors: Fully vaccinated staff are not required to wear face coverings or physically distance inside school buildings when students are not present (such as before and after school or on weekends) only when vaccination status is checked by the school. School Board Meetings Indoors: Fully vaccinated staff, school board members, and community are not required to wear face coverings or physically distance inside at school board meetings if children are not present only when vaccination status is checked by the school. Most children in Oregon are not yet vaccinated. School board meetings are open to the public and students and children are always welcome. These provisions are optional. School districts, charter schools, and private schools may still choose to require face coverings universally at all times. If a school is experiencing active transmission of COVID-19 or is located in a community experiencing increased rates of COVID-19, they should strongly consider maintaining or reinstating universal requirements for face coverings. None of these provisions should limit an individual or family decision to continue to wear face coverings in school settings. Schools should take steps to prevent and interrupt teasing, bullying, or harassment related to COVID-19 or COVID-19 mitigation efforts, especially when the civil rights of students may be violated.
