Letter to Families and Staff – April 26, 2021

April 26, 2021  /  District

Dear Staff and Families of Central Linn Schools,

First, we want to thank all of our families for working hard to ensure our students can remain in-person at Central Linn.  Last night, school administrators were notified that several staff members had been exposed to COVID-19.  This impacted bus routes, sports and activities, and the ability to maintain classes.  As a result, we could not safely operate school today.  We understand the difficulty of such a timeline and will continue to actively seek information as soon as possible.  We are committed to the safety of our staff and students through this process.

Starting tomorrow, most students will resume in-person instruction.  We are trying to remain open for students to be on-site; Linn County has shared that more exposure may require a shift to Distance Learning.

Families will be called today if your child is required to quarantine and participate in on-line instruction.  If your family has not been called, please plan to resume on-site instruction as usual.  Bus routes may be altered and adjusted as we are actively trying to add drivers and opportunities for students to get to school.

Quarantine can be avoided and the virus stopped in the community if everyone 16 and over gets vaccinated, and we all follow safety protocols in and out of the school setting. Halsey/Brownsville are becoming a hotspot due to low vaccination rates. Protect yourself, your family and our community and get your shot.
