ROSEBURG, Ore. – Roseburg Public Schools has drafted its plans for reopening schools this fall, putting a focus on health and quality education, officials said.

For kindergarten through fifth grade, students will return to classroom learning five days a week under the plan. Students will be grouped into cohorts, there will be visual screening for illnesses, and social distancing and hygiene will be emphasized.

For secondary students, there will be a mix of on-site and remote learning with similar safety precautions.

Families will have the option to choose comprehensive remote learning if they have concerns. A survey will be distributed in coming weeks.

“We know from our survey efforts that many families and students are anxious to return to school as normal, but we must be extremely cautious in our approach to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community,” said Superintendent Jared Cordon.

The plan follows a request from the Oregon Department of Education to create a blueprint for school reentry. Roseburg district officials said their plan follows guidelines and requirements from the state. Further guidance is expected later this month and in August. Final blueprints are due Aug. 15.

Health authorities must approve plans for returning to in-classroom instruction in the fall.
