The Eugene 4J school district will hold virtual information sessions over the next two weeks about reopening for the fall. According to a press release, at least the first four weeks of the school year will be online.

In order for schools to reopen for in-person instruction, the community must meet COVID-19 test baseline numbers outlined by both the state and the county. For schools to reopen for students in kindergarten-3rd grade, the community must see 30 or fewer positive cases per 100,000 people in Lane County, for three weeks in a row.

For students in 4th-12th grade, there must be 10 or fewer positive cases per 100,000 people in Lane County, for three weeks in a row.

The community must also see a rate of positive cases that is 5% or less in Lane County and in Oregon, for three weeks in a row—which applies to all grade levels.

In the meantime, 4J is continuing to plan for a hybrid learning model of in-person and online classes once public health conditions improve, and they have appropriate health and safety measures in place.

4J’s information sessions will be this Thursday and next Tuesday. Links to the meetings can also be found on the 4J website.
