Nov. 20 Update Return to CDL

Dear Families and Staff:

I regret to inform you that Klamath County new COVID case numbers for the last two weeks have exceeded the 200 limit per 100,000 and have placed us in the red zone per Oregon Department of Education guidance. This means we will need to return all students to comprehensive distance learning on Monday, November 30. In order to return grades K-6 to in-person learning, the county would need to reduce new case numbers over the next two weeks and bring our status down to the yellow or green zone. The earliest this would be possible is the week of December 7. Once K-6 is back for in-person instruction, grades 7-12 would be able to start in-person learning four weeks later. This would be after the winter break sometime in January. As always we will keep you up-to-date with the latest information.

I wish all of you a healthy and safe Thanksgiving and thank you for all you do to help us serve our students. This virus has been a rollercoaster ride for all of us, but I am extremely thankful this holiday season that we have wonderful families and staff working together to help our students learn and grow despite the ongoing challenges.

Best wishes,

Paul Hillyer, KFCS Superintendent

Oregon Department of Education Operational Blueprint for
School Reentry 2020-21

Under ODE’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance, each school has been directed to submit a plan to the district in order to provide on-site and/or hybrid instruction. Districts must submit each school’s plan to the local school board and make the plans available to the public. This form is to be used to document a district’s, school’s or program’s plan to ensure students can return for the 2020-21 school year, in some form, in accordance with Executive Order 20-25(10). Schools must use the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance document as they complete their Operational Blueprint for Reentry. ODE recommends plan development be inclusive of, but not limited to school-based administrators, teachers and school staff, health and nursing staff, association leadership, nutrition services, transportation services, tribal consultation, parents and others for purposes of providing expertise, developing broad understanding of the health protocols and carrying out plan implementation.

  • The processes most critical to department success will be determined and flow charted.
  • Flow charts will be sent to their supervisor for approval before submitting to the superintendent.

Goal #2: Improve Customer Satisfaction—By May 2019, a customer service survey will be sent to all staff and the results will be used to create PDSA plans for the next school year.
