Letter to the Community from Superintendent Gardner – January 7, 2021
Central Linn Community and Families:
I want to start by thanking all of those who wrote letters and emails to express your desire to have children in school in-person as much as possible, as soon as possible. I want you to hear that your feelings are shared by the School Board, the Administration, and the Staff at Central Linn School District. I also want to express my appreciation for the decency and respectful tone of the vast majority of your expressions. In a time where civil discourse seems to grow less civil every day, it is refreshing that we can have a conversation based on mutual respect.

School Board Community Letter – August 13, 2020
Dear Central Linn Community:
We, the Central Linn School Board, want you to know how hard the Central Linn Staff has been working this summer during unpredictable and stressful circumstances. Not only has admin been working overtime to run up to three different scenarios and schedules, making sure cohorts are not mixing and coordinating that each child take the courses they need for graduation, but a team of teachers has also been working with admin as a committee to create a blueprint for school reentry in the 2020-2021 school year. This is just one of the many tasks they’ve had to navigate in an every-changing pandemic. (Principals are not contracted for the month of July, teachers are not contracted for summer, but our CL staff is working regardless.)
