K-3 Instruction Start Date Delayed, Survey Needed From All Parents

Dear Junction City Families, 

It is with great disappointment that we share that K-3 in-person instruction will not be able to start as planned on October 5th due to State metrics shifting in the wrong direction this week.   Based on State of Oregon requirements, the county must be under 30 cases per 100,000; Lane County’s latest metric (9/21/2020) is 30.6 cases per 100,000.

Estimadas Familias de Junction City, 

Es con gran lastima que compartimos que la instrucción de K-3 en persona no podrá comenzar como habíamos planeado el 5 de octubre debido a las métricas del Estado cambiandose en la dirección incorrecta esta semana. Basado en los requisitos del Estado de Oregon, el condado debe ser menos de 30 casos por 100,000; la última métrica del Condado de Lane (9/21/2020) es 30.6 casos por 100,000.

Message from Co-Principals, Joy O'Renick and Justin Corey

Dear Oaklea Families,

This is a historic and challenging moment in our nation, and we are all feeling a great deal of emotion as a community. During this time, it is more important than ever that our words and actions demonstrate respect and empathy. Oaklea Middle School categorically condemns all language and actions that discriminate against our students and communities of color. Per the student conduct code, we will follow up with an investigation and appropriate consequences for any student behaviors that fall into these categories. We are proud of our community's commitment to respect, equity, and racial justice, and will take swift action to protect the dignity and safety of our students.

Joy O'Renick and Justin Corey, Co-Principals
