Details for the 2020-2021 School Year:
The 2020-2021 school year will begin with Comprehensive Distance Learning due to the criteria for in-person learning established by the Oregon Department of Education. In order to return to in-person learning, SCS is required to meet specific metrics. You can find the required metrics published here. The latest county metrics can be found here, and a helpful visual dashboard is available here. As we have students and staff from multiple counties, based on current enrollment we must meet the metrics for both Washington and Yamhill counties. There is a possibility we may also be required to meet metrics in Clackamas County, however we are currently in communication with our Local Health Authority to see if this is required for our school. We will be continually monitoring the metrics while in Comprehensive Distance Learning and will notify families of any impending changes. Once the criteria for in-person instruction is met, SCS will move to a hybrid model, with students attending in-person 2 days a week and 2 days of distance learning. More information about this model will be provided as we get closer to meeting the requirements for in-person learning.

What’s the best way to schedule a meeting with my student’s teacher? The best way to contact the teacher is by email to request a meeting or phone call.
What if my child will be absent or will miss a session? Please email the office at email@example.com to let us know if you student will be absent, even if it is just part of the day.
Are there any opportunities for students to socialize outside of classroom time? We have added an optional elementary virtual recess and a middle school virtual hangout time to our online opportunities. Hosted by Mrs. Buchanan, our school counselor, this will be a great time for students to chat with their classmates and get to know one another. Please refer to these schedules for the specific times for each grade: Elementary K-5 Virtual Recess, Middle School Virtual Hangout
