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.
Paul Hillyer, KFCS Superintendent
