The CDC's new guidance will not impact schools this school year. All individuals on our schools campuses must mask and physically distance. Yesterday, Governor Brown addressed how the new guidance will be implemented in Oregon and stated, "Nothing is changing for schools this school year, and I expect education staff and students to continue to wear masks and physically distance, as outlined in our Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance." Thank you for your cooperation.
This is the final week of our month long reading event, Reading Together is Learning Together. I hope you have enjoyed the books and have found the reading strategies to be helpful while reading with your student. In Friday folders you will find the final strategy and a short survey. Please complete the survey and have your student give it to their teacher during the week of May 3rd. As a thank you for participating in our Reading Together is Learning Together event and for returning the survey, we will send home a full size bag of microwave popcorn. Thanks again and keep on reading!!

Greenwood Families, Please see the attached resource, which is a good reminder to check students for symptoms before sending them to school. Please use caution and keep students home if they are sick or have any of the following symptoms so that we can limit the spread of disease! If you have not done so, please read the recent Principal's Message news article for a more complete update on our return to in-person learning. Have a great day!

LGSD will remain in Comprehensive Distance Learning with restricted Limited In-Person Instruction as we enter into our Winter Break period. Current data for Union County for (11/22/20 - 12/5/2020): Absolute case count: 156 Positivity Rate: 12.9%
Greenwood Families, Despite being in Comprehensive Distance Learning, we have the opportunity to hold limited groups for short periods of instruction. This coming Wednesday, we will be inviting some students in for 2 hour sessions of in-person learning. Unfortunately, these groups need to be small in order to meet current safety protocols and we are not able to offer this to all students. Based on achievement data and individual instructional needs, we will be contacting some families to offer this Limited In-Person opportunity for next Wednesday, 12/9. As case counts go down, opportunities for in-person learning will continue to increase. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Ryan
No school, Friday, December 4, 2020. Teachers will be attending trainings. See you on Monday, December 7th!
