February 9, 2022 Superintendent Update

As of yesterday’s report, all counties in the state remain in the high category of community spread. The good news is that over the last few weeks, we have seen a decline in both COVID cases and hospitalizations. The projected data, if the decline continues at current rates, is that our case numbers and hospitalizations will be down below where they were prior to the latest surge.

National School Counseling Week

This week is officially recognized as National School Counseling Week. Attached is the proclamation from Governor Brown. Please join me in thanking our school counselors, mental health therapists, and behavior specialists for all the work they have put in to support our district students, staff, and community over the past couple of difficult years. I truly appreciate all who support mental health in our schools.

A Message from Waterfall Community Health Center

As of today, we are no longer requiring PCP or MH referrals. Parents (and patients over 14) can now self-refer and we will take care of getting the documentation from PCP and MH after their first appointment.

December 2021 Community Update

We have been working with the Oregon Health Authority and our Local Health Authority to begin the “Test to Stay” program in the month of January. The program will allow students who test negative after exposure to remain at school. This has the potential to drastically reduce the amount of quarantines for individuals and classrooms.
