As the COVID numbers have continued to increase across the county, MCSD continues to work on plans that will allow us to keep our buildings open to the fullest extent possible. Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) have adjusted the metrics for returning to in-person instruction by removing the case positivity rate for small counties like Morrow County. https://5il.co/np85 Currently we have been able to keep all our buildings open on a limited basis following the original guidelines ODE released. Beginning in January, we will have to operate under the current metrics and may have to return to Comprehensive Distance Learning unless our efforts to maintain our current status is adjusted by ODE and OHA. We are asking our community members to continue following OHA guidelines in an effort to bring our county COVID numbers back down. Please help to stop COVID-19 from spreading by wearing a face covering in public, washing your hands and covering your cough. Please stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with people who are sick.
Wishing you and your family a happy and restful Thanksgiving! MCSD will be closed November 25th-27th.
AC Houghton Elementary School's online schedule has changed. Now, online students will have Distance Learning in a Google Meet from 2:00pm - 3:30pm and activities in their Google Classroom from 8:30am-12:30pm. This will allow the staff to focus on the online students exclusively in the afternoon from 2:00-3:30, while still allowing flexibility in working from home at your-own-pace in the morning. Students who attend in-person for our Hybrid Learning time will be at school from 8:15am-1:00pm. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to make this Hybrid schedule work for both online and in-person instruction. If you have any questions, please call the ACH office at (541)922-3321.

Irrigon / Boardman Busing Update: Due to the limitations around student cohorts and the distances buses have to travel, we do not have the routes ready to start on November 2nd. We are asking any family that is able to continue transporting their students to do so. Families continuing to help with transportation is important for: 1. Reducing the number of cohorts their child is in during the day 2. Limiting the amount of time students spend on the bus CDL instruction remains an option for families. We will continue to work on manageable bus routes and will update families as soon as possible.
Conferences are happening next week on November 5th and 6th. We can't wait to talk about our favorite topic - your children! Mark your calendar for your scheduled conference time. If you can't remember, please call the ACH office at (541)922-3321.
