Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year at CSD

Dear CSD Families,

I wish you a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend and a healthy beginning to the school year ahead. Over the past few months, many of our students and staff continued enhancing their skills through CSD’s fun and effective summer school programs. This fall, we are delighted to be welcoming our students back to full-week, in-person instruction and are eager to partner with you throughout the year.

Over the past week, our buildings have been buzzing as teachers and staff have been busy preparing their classrooms and our facilities for your student’s arrival. During this time, our district kick-off and school in-service sessions have provided a wonderful opportunity to collaborate, reconnect and inspire one another with new ideas and energy.

As we begin the year, please know that your student’s health and safety have been central in our back-to-school planning process. With guidance from Oregon Department of Education’s (ODE) Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework, we are working closely with officials from the Oregon Department of Education, Lane County Public Health (LCPH) and the Oregon Health Authority to put mitigation strategies in place and follow rules mandated by state and national agencies, including those regarding face covering and vaccination requirements. Our Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Service Plan outlines measures that have been implemented to promote safety and wellness, and provide support for the mental, social, and emotional health of our students and staff. As positive or presumptive cases of COVID are identified, we will coordinate with Nurse Melissa Cole and LCPH to follow contact tracing protocols, notify families if quarantines or isolations are required, and keep the community informed.

As we have seen, the COVID situation remains fluid and we are ready to adjust if plans must change. You can help us keep students in class by doing your part. While regular attendance is key to student success, it is important for students and staff who have symptoms of infectious illness such as COVID-19 to stay home. If your child has been exposed or received a positive COVID test, please alert the school. Wearing face coverings and vaccinations for those who are eligible help minimize quarantines and time away from the classroom.

As we launch the 2021-22 academic year, I’d like to offer my thanks to the entire CSD team for working tirelessly to prepare our schools for a safe return and to you, our CSD community, for your continued, tremendous support. Working together, we will make Creswell School District the best it can be and create a healthy, enriching environment where students can thrive.

Sincerely,
Mike Johnson
Superintendent

Creswell SD Community Notification: COVID-19

Dear CSD Staff and Families,

Yesterday, we learned that a person in Creswell High School on the football team has tested positive for COVID-19. As members of the school community, we understand that this might raise concerns alongside a caring response. We are working closely with the Lane County Public Health department (LCPH) to respond to this news and protect the health of our community.

Each situation calls for different protocols. In this case, we will follow the following steps:

  • I am communicating closely with LCPH.
  • Close contact tracing has been conducted.
  • Nurse Melissa has been notified and is in communication with LCPH.
  • All CHS football players in close contact with the player have been notified.
  • A letter has been posted on our website.
  • Any additional students/families that need to be notified will be contacted by LCPH.

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is by getting vaccinated if eligible, staying home when ill or exposed to someone with COVID-19, wearing face coverings, physical distancing, and practicing good health hygiene habits. 

Be sure to wash your hands frequently with soap and water, cover your coughs and sneezes, and avoid contact with people who have signs of illness. Get plenty of rest, exercise, and eat a healthy diet. 

Wearing cloth face coverings reduces the spread of viruses and helps prevent those who have the virus, but do not have symptoms, from passing it to others.

We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes out, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone’s right to privacy.

More information can be found on the Oregon Department of Education’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners page and the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19 page. If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Melissa at: mcole@creswell.k12.or.us.

Sincerely,

Mike Johnson, Superintendent
