Central Point School District #6

Instruction will be canceled in all D6 schools through September 11th

September 9th, 2020 by Samantha Steele

The impact of wildfires in Jackson County has become increasingly urgent, tragic and challenging.  D6 families and staff have lost homes, or been displaced or have family suffering huge loss.

Power outages and internet access are also huge obstacles to providing distance learning during this wildfire event.   In order to focus our efforts on supporting families and community, instruction will be canceled in all D6 schools through September 11th.

September 10-11

  • Live instruction, Zoom meetings, or other “real time” activities are canceled.
  • Grab and Go meals will be served at ALL D6 schools from 11:15 am until 12:30 pm.
  • YMCA childcare will be available at CPE, JES, MRE, PES and SVE.
  • Patrick Elementary is a temporary shelter site for families who have been displaced.
  • The Crater High School campus is a housing site for out of area fire crews.
  • Scenic Middle School is a command center for the Oregon Fire Marshal and a housing site for out of area fire crews.

D6 Connected 2.0 Update for families – September 4, 2020

September 4th, 2020 by Amy Shipley

D6 Connected and the YMCA partner for childcare at five elementary sites

D6 and the YMCA have partnered to provide D6 families childcare in a “micro-school” environment at each of our elementary schools, with D6 staff.  Costs range from $135 per week per child to $0 per week per child. Please look over this flier (English) (Spanish) for more information about the program and costs.  If you need childcare and cannot afford to pay, or want to know more about reduced costs, please contact  Bethany Pitts bpitts@rvymca.org or 541-772-6295 ext. 114.

Kid-Time Learning Lab, community micro-school and D6 partner for childcare and learning supports at Scenic

Additional childcare in a micro-school environment will be offered at Scenic Middle School for school age students K-6th grade.  The Kid-Time Learning Lab operates Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 3:30 pm and costs range from $675 per month (per child) to $150 or less.  Please use this link (English) (Spanish) to learn more. If you need childcare and cannot afford to pay, or want to know more about reduced costs, please contact learninglab@kid-time.org or 541-772-9922. 

Free meals for kids 18 years old and younger will continue through December 31

Yay!  Our school sites will continue to offer free meals and the D6 Express begins Tuesday, September 8th—see the D6 scheduled routes here.  Schools offering free breakfasts and lunches through “grab and go” can be found here, along with available times.

The D6 Express!  We’re back on the road beginning September 8

The D6 Express is back with meals, materials and fun!  Please check out the new D6 Express routes where you can grab a meal, turn in materials or pick up items you’ve requested from your school.

NEW! Sams Valley Elementary will provide space and internet for secondary students

Living the serene life in the country sometimes means no access to internet.  If you don’t have access to the internet for remote learning, please contact your child’s school for assistance; we can provide technical help, technology, hot-spots and other services to assure that you can get on-line.   Sams Valley Elementary is providing limited on-site instruction for elementary kids in the mornings and a safe, supported space for secondary kids in the afternoon.  Please contact your child’s school for more information.

Need help with a neighborhood micro-school?

Neighborhood micro-schools are organized and supervised by parents.  It’s a great way for like-minded parents to work together so that students can engage together in the comprehensive distance learning provided by D6 schools, parents can share supervision and kids can continue to develop social skills while having some fun.  Once you’ve formed a neighborhood micro-school, contact one of our micro-school gurus for resources, consultation and anything else that will make your neighborhood micro-school a success!  Kim Bennett (kim.bennett@district6.org) and Amanda Davenport (amanda.davenport@district6.org) can help.  Please note that parents are responsible for organizing and supervising their neighborhood micro-schools.  D6 does not go into individual homes to background check parents or evaluate those homes for safety.  As much as we’d like to help match up interested families, we do not want to give the impression that we’ve “vetted” an individual or a group.  Please apply the same vigilance and caution you would before sending your child into any private home.  If you are interested in a micro-school that has been “vetted” by D6, consider one of our community micro-schools—the YMCA or Kid-Time.

D6 Schools will begin the school year with remote learning

Based upon Jackson County data today, District 6 schools will begin on September 8th with remote learning for all students through December 1, 2020.  Currently, Jackson County does not meet the Governor’s standards for re-opening schools for in-person learning, even for grades K-3.  D6 will monitor the data weekly and provide regular updates for families about potential opening for K-3 prior to December 1st. Click here for more information.

Las escuelas D6 comenzarán el año escolar con aprendizaje a distancia (en línea)

Según los datos del condado de Jackson hoy, las escuelas del Distrito 6 comenzarán el 8 de septiembre con aprendizaje a distancia para todos los estudiantes hasta el 1 de diciembre de 2020. En este momento, el condado de Jackson no cumple con los estándares de la gobernadora para reabrir escuelas para el aprendizaje en persona, incluso para grados K-3. D6 monitoreará los datos semanalmente y proporcionará actualizaciones periódicas para las familias sobre la fecha posible para abrir las escuelas para K-3 antes del 1 de diciembre. Se publicará más información aquí.
