Families of Pine Eagle School District,


The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) released its first round of guidance, Ready Schools, Safe Learners, Version 1, which will aid school districts across Oregon in planning the start of the 2020-21 school year this fall. ODE leadership has stated that the guidance is the first iteration and will likely change multiple times before the start of the school year this fall.


“The blueprints will require that every school, under the direction of the district, determine whether they teach all students on site, teach all students through new comprehensive distance learning or utilize a hybrid model,” said Colt Gill, ODE Director.


Be assured that our team has been actively planning for the upcoming school year for weeks and will continue this work throughout the summer. We will work within the current guidelines to develop an Operational Blueprint for Reentry plan, understanding that we will revise and reshape our plans throughout the summer.


We welcome you to review the full guidance from ODE at your convenience. You will find that it includes a wide range of guidelines for schools, including, but not limited to:

  • Physical distancing (minimizing contact within 6 feet with other people)
  • Hand hygiene (frequent washing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer)
  • Protective equipment (use of face shields, face coverings and barriers)
  • Environmental cleaning and disinfection (especially of high-touch surfaces)
  • Meal service
  • Transportation


In the weeks to come we will meet with our educators, administrative team, school nurse, and others to plan for your students’ safe and healthy return to school. 


We need feedback from you to inform our work in developing a plan that meets the needs of all students; a survey is available on our website. 


As we develop the plan, we will communicate with you and consider your feedback throughout the development process. 


I hope you and your families are well. We are looking forward to opening our doors for the 2020-2021 school year.

PECS 2020-21 School Year Planning
Dear Pine Eagle Families,
We are currently planning a variety of approaches to serving our students and families in this coming school year. As we plan for fall 2020, we want to be prepared for a variety of reopening scenarios.

To do that, we want to hear from you and your child about the learning experience during the school closure this spring. You may answer the optional questions provided and/or you may use the open comment field at the end of this survey.
