ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Roseburg Public Schools announced Monday that sixth through 12th grades will be heading back to class next week for in-person hybrid learning.

This announcement comes on the same day elementary students made their own return to the classroom to parents' excitement. They are under full in-person instruction.

District officials said the decision to bring secondary students back to in-person learning on Feb. 1 is due to the COVID-19 positivity rate falling in Douglas County. However, students will be under a hybrid-learning structure.

The latest data from the Oregon Health Authority shows Douglas County's positivity rate lowered to 4.4%. Douglas County saw 196 cases per 100,000 people over a week's time.

The state's metrics advise reopening for hybrid learning once cases fall below 200 per 100,000 and the positivity rate falls below 10%.
