- Recommendations from Oregon Health Authority
Per the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), students, faculty, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks while indoors on campus. Masks are not required indoors while eating, drinking, practicing or competing in interscholastic athletics, performing in theatre, playing music that requires students to use their mouths, or delivering a speech to an audience.
Effective November 29, 2021, masks will be optional outdoors. Though it is still recommended to wear a mask if in close proximity of another individual for a prolonged period of time, it will not be required. As COVID-19 rates increase or decrease, the Oregon Health Authority will relax or tighten face covering requirements and we will continue to follow their guidance.
As of January 10, 2022, any individual testing positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status or symptoms, must isolate at home for at least 5 days (day 0 through day 5). Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or a positive test.
If the individual had a fever or other symptoms that have not improved or subsided after the 5 days of at-home isolation, they must stay home until they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.
If the individual in isolation is symptom-free or has mild symptoms that have resolved after 5 days, they may return to school. Individuals returning between days 6 and 10 must wear a well-fitting mask at all times. If masking is not feasible during co-curricular activities, then the individual should not participate in that activity during the second 5-day period (day 6 through 10).
Close contacts will not need to quarantine at the time of an exposure if they are up-to-date (including booster dose if eligible if 18 years or older) with the COVID-19 vaccination. Close contacts who have had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test within the last 90 days will also not need to quarantine.
Close contacts should quarantine if they are not up-to-date with the COVID-19 vaccination. They must quarantine for 5 days (day 0 through day 5). If the individual has remained symptom-free, they may return to school on day 6. Individuals returning between days 6 and 10 must wear a well-fitting mask at all times. If masking is not feasible during co-curricular activities, then the individual should not participate in that activity during the second 5-day period (day 6 through 10).
It is recommended that all individuals considered as close contacts receive a COVID-19 test 5 days after last exposure regardless of vaccination status.
Update on January 13, 2022. While we await final confirmation from Washington County Public Health Authority of the proposed guidance for household exposures we will continue with the following procedure:
Individuals who are up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccination who have been exposed to a positive case in their household will need to monitor for symptoms. If they start to show symptoms, they should stay home and get tested.
Individuals who are not up-to-date with the COVID-19 vaccination will need to quarantine for 5 days from the last day of exposure. If the individual has remained symptom-free, they may return to school on day 6. Individuals returning between days 6 and 10 must wear a well-fitting mask at all times. If masking is not feasible during co-curricular activities, then the individual should not participate in that activity during the second 5-day period (day 6 through 10).
It is recommended that individuals with a household exposure receive a COVID-19 test 5 days after last exposure regardless of vaccination status.
Families should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and call a doctor if student is experiencing a fever of 100.4 or higher, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. Additionally, students with any COVID-19 symptoms may not return to school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours without the aid of any relief medication. If a student or anyone in the household tests positive for COVID or has the symptoms above, the student should stay home and email email@example.com.
Recommendations for parents as students prepare to go back to school from the Oregon Health Authority:

- Create a visual aid/calendar at home
- Support school and local health authority policies and protocols
- Encourage students to advocate with teachers, administrators, etc.
- Ask your child how you can support them
- Canvas Expectations
- Student Handbook

The attached list includes course and digital text fees. Registration fees cover most textbooks and supplies, but all students need a TI-89 calculator for their math/science classes. Each teacher will advise students of other required supplies during the first week of school.
In most classes, students will receive digital textbooks and/or course materials during the first week of classes. However, students are responsible for purchasing their own paper copies of specific texts for English classes, Analysis & Topography, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, and AP Calculus Prep. Paper texts can be purchased online; some used copies may be available. Texts for English classes differ depending on individual teachers; students should check their schedules and the English paperback list to ensure they get the correct texts.
Canvas is a web-based learning management system. Students can access their Canvas courses either via the Canvas Student app on their iPads or the Canvas website on any device that has internet access, including iPads. Parents/guardians do not have access to Canvas.
