Covid-19 Update (Nov. 19, 2020)

November 19, 2020

Dear Oran Eagle Students and Families,

Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases and quarantines in our school district and community, we have reevaluated our safety practices and procedures to help ensure that we keep our students safe and in school. The updates outlined below will take effect on Friday, November 20, 2020 and are in addition to procedures already practiced:

In the Elementary school, we are now asking students to wear masks in the following places:
- When entering and leaving school, in the hallway to special class, and all day in the classroom
- When going to the cafeteria and while waiting in line
- Students will NOT wear masks when eating, playing at recess and PE.
- Students will be given masks breaks by the teachers throughout the day.

In the Junior High and High School, we are asking students to wear masks in the following places:
- In classrooms where enrollment is 21 or higher
- In the cafeteria bleachers once junior high students finish eating

Following these practices will allow us to keep more children in school as the number of students quarantined as a close contact will decrease. An example to emphasize the impact of this practice is in an event of a positive case in an elementary classroom where all students are masked, only one student would be required to quarantine as opposed to an entire class.

Every decision made regarding COVID-19 is made with a great deal of thought and consideration. Our goal is to help keep students, their families, and our community safe while keeping students in school.

Sincerely,


Oran Administration



COVID COMMUNICATION FOR ATHLETIC EVENTS (UPDATED 11/19/2020)

November 19, 2020


Dear Oran Eagle Students and Families, 


With careful consideration and thought, we have chosen to extend our decision to not allow fans at home athletic events through December 11, 2020. At that time, we will reevaluate this decision and communicate our plans moving forward. This decision was not made lightly and is based on the fact that COVID-19 cases have increased in our school district and also in the Oran community. 


We understand that athletic events are extremely important for students and families. We truly want to have fans at our ballgames and will do so as soon as we see a decrease in COVID-19 cases in our school and community. All home games will continue to be live streamed so that fans can watch from home. This was a tough decision but we believe it is best for the safety of our students and community. 



Sincerely, 




Oran Administration
