2020-21 Annual Notice for Statewide Tests (PDF Link)
Calendar Update for Friday, October 2, 2020
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
We have an early release for students and half day District-wide Staff Professional Development (P.D.) scheduled on the District Calendar for Friday, October 2nd. With the schools’ new Comprehensive Distance Learning schedule allowing for staff P.D. to occur weekly on Wednesdays, I do not believe that having an additional District-wide P.D. on 10/2 would be necessary. In addition, the start of school was delayed due to the fire and smoke affecting air quality levels. For those reasons, on Friday, October 2nd Creswell School District will hold classes at their regularly scheduled times. The remainder of the day will be a regular work day for staff rather than a professional development.
Mike Johnson, Superintendent
As of Tuesday, September 15 – Creswell School District has started delivering student meals to designated stops in the district.
If you would like to be added to one of the pick-up locations please call Creswell School District Transportation at 541-895-6009. Please include the following information in your message: name, number of kids that need a meal, and a phone number to call you in case more information is needed. Please call as soon as possible, so we can provide the appropriate number of meals for each location. We can start delivering meals the day after you call.
Here is the current plan for meal distribution:
- Meals are free from ages 0-18 until December 31st, 2020.
- The Creslane location will continue to operate on school days from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Meal delivery stops will be at locations where the bus can stop safely, and turn the engine off.
- At these sites, the meals will be served outside the main doors or out the rear door of the bus.
- The school district staff will place a cone on the ground in front of the bus door to maintain social distancing when we have a large group waiting at a stop. Please do not approach the bus until the staff has directed you to do so.
- Please have only one representative from each family come up to the bus.
- The school bus will remain at each stop for at least 10 minutes or as long as needed.
- There will be 2 delivery times per each delivery location. The 1st delivery time coincides with the Creslane and Creswell High School lunch breaks. The 2nd delivery time coincides with the Creswell Middle School lunch break.
We hope the vast majority of folks will be able to either make it to the Creslane pick-up location or one of the stops listed HERE (Link)
Thank you for your patience as we start the 2020-21 school year.
Dear Staff, Parents/Guardians and Students,
As we continue to move towards reopening our schools with device and materials distribution to begin classes with our students, we appreciate your patience while we plan for an opportunity to move forward.
The health and safety of our staff and students is our absolute highest priority. In that regard, the conditions that we are under with the Holiday Farm Fire are directly impacting our ability to work outside to distribute devices and materials for classes. The smoke has degraded our air quality index (ARI) to a hazardous pollution level at nearly 400 (healthy level is 50), several Creswell families and staff are without power and staff members living in Springfield are on notice for evacuation. The forecast and conditions are expected to be the same for tomorrow.
At this time, we are canceling all outdoor activities through tomorrow. Technology devices and materials distribution will be rescheduled for Monday 9/14, and classes will begin for students on Tuesday 9/15. Meals distribution and delivery will also be delayed until Monday at the regularly scheduled times. Principals will follow up with a communication from each school with details for distribution times and “meet and greet” activities for next week.
I realize that this delay of the start of school is disappointing to all of you and I share the same feelings. However, I feel this is the safest approach for all considered at this time with these conditions.
I sincerely thank you for your patience and I too will be relieved and pleased when we launch our back to school activities next week.
Mike Johnson, Superintendent
