Return to Campus Plan
We are committed to maintaining a safe, healthy, Ignatian-centered learning environment for students, faculty and staff. Information and updates concerning return to campus protocols, schedules, and health and safety measures can be found here.
On Monday, March 21, the Oregon Health Authority aligned Oregon’s rules with CDC guidelines allowing students to be seated 3 feet apart in classrooms.
In light of the new “3-foot rule,” starting on Tuesday, April 6, we are inviting all students to come to campus for classes for four days per week, using the same Bell Schedule (see below) that we have been using thus far in Semester 2.
Students may attend JHS in one of two modes: on-campus for four days per week, or fully-remote. Students cannot choose to be on campus for two days/week only.
Jesuit’s planning has followed the requirements of the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA), in their joint document Ready Schools/Safe Learners (RSSL). Our complete Operational Blueprint can be viewed here.
The following Campus Protocols and Information can also be viewed and downloaded in PDF format here.

- Before School
- After School
- Dress Code
- Reporting Possible COVID-19 Cases
All classes meet at their assigned times according to students’ respective schedules. All students are required to attend either distance-learning or in-person classes during the school day, unless there is an illness or a family emergency.
In the Hybrid Learning Model, teachers will take attendance for in-person and distance learning students daily and report absences for students who are not in their expected location (e.g., a student expected on-campus who appears in remote learning) to our Attendance office. All standard Attendance policies are in place.
Parents and guardians should report all absences, late arrivals, and early dismissal to the Attendance Office by emailing email@example.com before the start of the school day. This requirement includes students who are scheduled to be on campus, but who will attend classes remotely due to illness, quarantine, or other issues.
Students and parents should be proactive in communicating planned absences and are expected to email the Attendance Office. Students should inform teachers of planned absences in advance via email.
Families are asked to schedule appointments outside of class time. If that is not possible, please schedule appointments when the student’s cohort is not on campus. Parents/guardians should communicate early dismissal info to firstname.lastname@example.org before the start of the school day.
Students arriving after 7:55 am will be redirected to the Knight Center lobby CapScann and will be marked tardy. After passing the wellness check, students will be given a pass to go to class.
Students with parking passes will not be assigned to specific parking spaces. Student parking in the Cronin lot will be first-come, first-served for juniors and seniors. Sophomores will be assigned to the tennis courts lot, also on a first-come, first-served basis. As more students return to campus, students may also be assigned to designated locations in Valley Plaza.
Students parking on campus must have a parking permit approved by Director of Security Cathe Kent and display the permit in the vehicle. Students who are returning to campus in April and have questions about obtaining a parking permit should contact Director of Security Cathe Kent.
All staff and students will complete the Health Works app survey and pass through the CapScann machine each morning prior to entering school. All students will enter school through designated entrances (Juniors and Seniors through Smith Gym, Freshmen and Sophomores through Gedrose Center. If younger students carpool with a junior or senior, the younger student may check in at the Smith Gym.)
Staff members will be stationed at entrances to check for compliance at the CapScann and to complete visual checks for symptoms and face coverings. Students who fail the CapScann check-in will be sent to the Bill Hunt Boardroom for a re-check by the School Nurse.
Freshmen and Sophomores
- Check in to CapScann machines in Gedrose Center (cafeteria): Freshmen 7:20-7:40; Sophomores: 7:35-7:55 am.
- Drop off/pick up of freshmen and sophomore students are on the WEST side of campus only. Parents may use the 91st entrance to the flagpole or the Valley Plaza Jesuit parking lot behind the SuperPlay/Theatre.
- Freshman parents are encouraged to use the Valley Plaza lot for drop off and pick up, to alleviate traffic congestion at the 91st St/flagpole entry, which is also used for emergency vehicles.
Juniors and Seniors
- Drop off/pick up of juniors and senior students are on the EAST side of campus only. Parents are to use the Cronin entrance and use the first lane of traffic (closest to Cronin Field) to drop off and pick up.
- Check in to CapScann machines in Smith Gym: Juniors 7:20-7:40; Seniors: 7:35-7:55 am.
Please contact Director of Security Catherine Kent at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
The Smith Gym and Gedrose Center will open at 7:00 am and students are not allowed on campus before that time. Students who arrive between 7:00 and 7:20 am will be supervised in the Smith Gym or Gedrose Center. Students may begin accessing the CapScann at 7:20 am. After passing the CapScann, students must move directly to their 1st or 5th period classrooms.
After classes end for the day, students will be expected to move to one of the following places:
- Off campus
- To a planned activity (such as Mass, a club, or sports practice) where attendance is taken.
- A supervised study hall.
Students will not be allowed to “hang out” on campus after classes end for the day.
Students who are learning remotely who come to campus for activities, athletics, campus ministry, etc., are required to check in through a CapScann machine before proceeding to the activity.
Meal service will not be available in the Gedrose Center, and microwaves will not be in use for student use. Students on campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays are required to bring a pre-made lunch from home. On Wednesdays and Fridays, students who are staying on campus should also bring lunch. Seniors may not leave campus for lunch on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Students may not share food or drink, including water bottles, with others. Students should bring their own utensils and napkins.
Students will eat in designated indoor and outdoor lunch areas on campus. Students must sit or stand at least six feet apart and should dress appropriately for weather if eating outside. Students may remove their face coverings while they are eating, but should replace their face coverings when finished.
In order to minimize the need for locker room use, when students are on campus under the Hybrid schedule, they may follow a relaxed dress code allowing for athletic pants (“sweats” or leggings) and shorts. All attire must be appropriate, modest, and align with Jesuit’s values. Clothing must be neat, clean, and in good repair. Shorts must reach at least three inches above the knee. Vice Principals will be the final arbiters of appropriateness of student dress.
Attendance and absence exceptions will be made if the student or a family member is showing possible symptoms or a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. In such cases, email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately so that we can implement our COVID contact tracing and quarantine protocols right away to protect the health and safety of our community.
Families can also email email@example.com with questions. Jesuit’s student health coordinator, Ms. Jennifer Adams, will follow up.
