Klamath Union, or KU as it’s locally known, is a comprehensive high school with a long and distinguished history of excellence in academics, arts, and athletics. First built in 1928, an extensive $50 million remodel was completed in 2019, creating modern improvements and state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and learning. KU technology and multi-faceted education programs provide students with excellent opportunities to prepare for the future. Many dual credit classes in partnership with OIT, KCC, and SOU offer pathways to careers and colleges. KU boasts exceptional arts programs in vocal and instrumental music, fine arts, and theater. A spectacular 250-seat theater was created in the new James Ivory Arts Center. Athletic improvements include new artificial turf on Modoc Field, resurfaced track and tennis courts, and creation of an additional gymnasium for classes and competitions. KU’s historic Pel Court has been restored to its original beauty and design..
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.
Paul Hillyer, KFCS Superintendent
