Extension of Food Service Program

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce the USDA has released waivers extending flexibilities for the Summer Food Service Program. With these waivers, we will be able to continue to provide our normal breakfasts and lunches to your child at no cost through the end of the school year. I am excited to offer this to our families during the tough circumstances COVID-19 has brought upon us all. Please do not hesitate to contact your respective building principal if you have any questions.

Proud Oran Superintendent,

My Positive Post to The Oran Community

     At Oran R-III we are intentional about not only finding the good in our children but letting them know about it as well. Something important I have learned in the education business is that you do not have good kids without good parents. For a positive postal we normally contact parents to inform them of their child's latest positive endeavor and to thank them as well. Last March we were all hit with a horrific new reality known as Covid. To say it has been hard on our community, school, and, most importantly, children would be an understatement. We have worked through virtual learning, a bond project, dreaded quarantines, mask mandates, serious health concerns, and many more challenges. Through all of this, the community and parents have simply been AWESOME to work with. The words patience, grace, compassion, and support are what come to mind when I reflect on this challenging and changing experience. We are not entirely out of the weeds with Covid, but I remain optimistic we will see better days and that is due, in large part, to the GREAT community and parents we have that make up this school district that is so very special to me. In closing, I simply want to say thank you. I understand we are not perfect as no one is, but as long as we continue to focus on doing what is best for our children it will be the right thing. Thank you all and have a Merry Christmas.

Sincerely,


Proud Superintendent

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
