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

Message from Superintendent Mike Johnson

Dear CSD Families, Staff, and Students,

We have been working diligently to prepare for the return of our students in September. I spent the past two days in a planning retreat with school principals and staff. Their dedication to Creswell’s students is inspiring.

I’m writing to share some brief updates with you regarding plans for the fall. As we have seen, rules continue to adjust based on public health guidance and the situation remains fluid. On August 11, Governor Kate Brown announced a statewide indoor mask mandate and yesterday, she directed OHA to create a rule that will require all staff, workers, volunteers, and others associated with schools to be vaccinated by October 18th or six weeks after a vaccine is federally approved, whichever comes later. We will be sharing our Safe Return to In-Person Learning and Continuity of Service plan on our website by August 27. Key aspects to our reopening plans are highlighted below, but please know these may need to be adjusted if rules and mandates change.

Full time, in-person instruction

We are excited to welcome our students back to full time, in-person learning in all our schools. Whether readying the buses or assembling new desks, our staff are looking forward to having students’ voices once again filling our hallways.

Health and Safety

Our team will be incorporating layered safety measures to prioritize and promote the health of our students and staff. Key points of the back-to-school plan can be found here and your feedback is welcome. Within the draft plan is a survey link that provides an opportunity to share your thoughts and concerns. This plan was created with two priorities in mind –the safety of our students and staff and providing exemplary education for every student in our district.

Care and Connection

I understand returning to full-time, in-person school may bring a mix of feelings including anticipation, nervousness, excitement and opportunity for students and families. We’re planning to kick the year off with a focus on care and connection to help create a welcoming space for everyone in our learning community.

Speaking of community, I’d like to share my thanks for Creswell’s unwavering support of our district and students. This community has demonstrated resilience and we will continue to get through this together.

Sincerely,

Mike Johnson
Superintendent
