Supt Search Survey & 11/10/20 Update: Health Directions for Parents

Your Voice Matters

As we look to the future hiring of a new superintendent, the Klamath Falls City Schools (KFCS) Board of Education wants to hear YOUR thoughts about what the district is currently doing well, what it could be doing better, and what attributes and qualifications you would like to see in the next superintendent. Please note that we would like your honest responses and all responses will be anonymous. Results will be reported by groups and no individual respondent will be identified. Once results are compiled, we will report them to the public.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Please CLICK HERE to take it on or before Monday, November 22. Thank you!

Hello Community Partners,

Recently KBBH received temporary funding through the CARES Act intended to provide additional support and access to resources for populations impacted by the pandemic. Specifically, we were asked to reach underserved groups including communities of color, non-English speakers, older adults, and those living in outlying areas of our county. We have received approval from OHA to spend these funds on a “Pandemic Project Giveaway” coming up on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 9AM-12PM. This event will be a drive-thru at our main facility - 2210 N Eldorado Ave. Attendees will receive a free backpack full of essentials such as winter gear, toiletries, non-perishable snacks, masks, hand sanitizer, plus a folder full of information about community resources and protecting themselves from COVID-19. In addition, KBBH staff will provide a free mental health check-up for those interested. Attendees do not need to be KBBH clients or engage in our services to participate in the mental health check-up. The information provided will represent a broad range of resources in Klamath County. Any community members who want a backpack and free mental health check-up, but cannot attend the drive-thru, can sign up for a delivery to Chiloquin, Bonanza, or Merrill on the following Saturday, December 12, 2020.

We wanted to reach out today to 1) invite you to share the attached event flyer with the populations you serve, and 2) to request materials from your agency to include in the resource folder. Our goal is to provide attendees with a packet of information that will help them find available resources when they need them, and also to include as much Covid related information as possible. KBBH is able to do some in-house printing if you would like to send electronic copies of any materials you have to share. You may also drop off materials at 2210 N Eldorado Ave, c/o Patty Card, or request a pick-up by replying to this email. We need to receive your materials no later than Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

I hope your agency can contribute information to the resource folder and/or help us get the word out to those who may want to come grab a backpack. The flyer is attached to this email and pasted below. Please let Patty Card or I know if you have any questions.

Thank you for the great work you are doing to serve our community during these trying times.

Thank you,

Dear Parents and Guardians: Haga clic aquí para ver la versión en español

It is so wonderful seeing the happy faces of our children in classrooms once again. Our hope is that soon all grades will be back in school. The earliest we can have grades 7-12 in-person is the week of November 30th due to state health guidelines. As has been the case, this will only be possible if the Klamath County new case numbers return to an acceptable level over the next two weeks. If they do, grades 7-8 will begin hybrid half-day in-person learning on Monday, November 30, and grades 9-12 will begin in-person learning all day every day starting on Monday, December 7th. We will keep you updated over the next two weeks on whether we can proceed with these plans.
In order to keep students in buildings for learning, we have to ensure that the virus does not spread in our schools. To restrict the possibility of spread, each building has a carefully conceived and implemented health and safety blueprint that includes mask-wearing, social distancing, frequent hand washing, and consistent disinfection. These efforts will help tremendously in keeping our students well.
Additionally, we cannot stress enough the importance of families also doing their part when students are not at school. Here are some critical steps we ask all of you to take so that we can keep our students learning in-person:
Check your child(ren) every morning for COVID-related symptoms before sending them to school. If your child(ren) have 1 (one) of these primary COVID-related symptoms, OR if they have 2 (two) of the other symptoms associated with COVID, please keep them home and follow the COVID exclusion tool to determine when they can return to school.

PRIMARY COVID-RELATED SYMPTOMS (ANY 1 OF THESE)

  • Fever greater than or equal to 100.4⁰F;
  • New onset or worsening cough;
  • Difficulty breathing;
  • New onset of the loss of taste or smell

OTHER COVID-RELATED SYMPTOMS (ANY 2 OF THESE)

  • Sore throat;
  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting;
  • Diarrhea;
  • Chills;
  • Muscle pain;
  • New onset of severe headache;
  • New onset of nasal congestion or runny nose

SAFETY:

  1. Do not send students who have been exposed to COVID (and have been directed to quarantine) to school until given permission by the health department.
  2. Have your family wear face masks when in contact with others outside of the home.
  3. Avoid large gatherings of people.
  4. Observe social distancing in all public areas, inside and outside.
  5. Practice frequent hand washing.Report positive cases in your household to the school.

If all families follow these simple health protocols that have been established by our public health professionals, we can limit the spread of the virus and keep our students in school. Please partner with us in observing these best practices for the education and well-being of our students. Thank you for your cooperation.
Best wishes,
Paul Hillyer, KFCS Superintendent
