Oregon School District officials are anxious to get more students back into classrooms, but with a recent spike in COVID-19 cases, they remain waiting for guidance from Dane County public health officials.
Dane County health officials have amended their schools reopening plan to allow in-person instruction to students with a disability and/or individualized education programs.
School will be back in session this week, and to help area families in need, the Oregon High School FFA is sponsoring a “Back to School” food drive for the Oregon Area Food Pantry.
Oregon School District staff spent the week before the start of school handing out materials to students at their respective schools. Materials were picked up through a drive-thru system, similar to the other ways the district has provided items for students since COVID-19 started.
In “normal” times, the opening of a spacious, modern elementary school in a fast-growing area of the school district would be the biggest thing to look forward to in the new school year.
