    Dear Powell Butte Elementary Staff and Families,

    Thank you for your continued partnership to support our students' learning during our transition to Short-term Distance Learning this week. As promised, we’re providing an update about our return to in-person learning for Powell Butte Elementary.  Based on current data at this time, staff absences have returned to a level that allows us to safely return to in-person learning on Monday, January 24, 2022

    We will continue to make decisions based on data and the health and safety of our students and staff. The district continues to monitor staff absences and various other metrics for all school sites. The Omicron variant continues to be prominent in the community, and staff and parents need to have contingency plans in place in the event a school has to transition to Short-term Distance Learning.

    As we return to in-person at Powell Butte Elementary, we ask for your partnership in helping us prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reminding your student of the following protocols while at school:

    -Stay at home if you are feeling ill.

    -Wear a mask correctly and consistently for the best protection.

    -Be sure to regularly wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

    -Practice physical distancing.

    Technology: If your student checked out a Chromebook or Wi-Fi Hotspot to use during Short-term Distance Learning, please have them bring it with them to school on Monday, January 24. Items can be returned to their classroom teacher.

    We are very excited to be returning to in-person learning. Our staff has been working hard to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible. We appreciate the support of our Powell Butte community and we will continue to partner with you during these unprecedented times to support all of our students.

    You can contact us any time at (503) 762-3204 or through the Remind app.

    Marin Miller, Principal
    Jared Austin, Assistant Principal
