South Umpqua School District to Resume In-Person Classes After Winter Break

Elizabeth Gabriel


The South Umpqua School District announced Tuesday that all schools will begin in-person instruction after the winter break.

The district said coronavirus cases in Douglas County have been under 200 cases per 100,000 people for the first time since early Nov. Which means if South Umpqua students were attending school in-person prior to the Thanksgiving break, they will return to school in-person on Jan. 4.

Students enrolled in comprehensive distance learning before Thanksgiving, will resume online classes.

Students and staff will be required to adhere to all COVID-19 health and safety precautions, including hand-washing, wearing face masks, social distancing, and staying home when sick or knowingly exposed to COVID-19.

The school year, as well as bus stop meal deliveries, will resume on Monday, Jan. 4 for the South Umpqua School District.
