School in the Fall

We would like to share with families and the public, Klamath Falls City Schools expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, five-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations today in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.

There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details over the summer.

  • All participation fees will be waived again this year for students in grades 6-12.
  • Klamath Falls City Schools will cover the cost of college credits for any student participating in a district-sponsored program.

Oregon Department of Education Operational Blueprint for School Reentry

Under ODE’s ​Ready Schools, Safe Learners​ guidance, each school​1​ has been directed to submit a plan to the district​2​ 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).
