This fall, LGSD students will attend school full-time, five days per week. The Oregon Department of Education is now revising guidance to support K-12 schools in safely delivering in-person instruction. That guidance, Ready Schools, Safe Learners, is expected on or before July 24th. LGSD will work with a committee of parents, community members, and staff to update our safety plans and those will be released in early August.

"Kindergarten is such an essential point in a child's social, emotional, and cognitive development. Certainly, our teachers focus on exposing students to foundational literacy and numeracy skills, but above all else we want students to feel excited about learning, to interact with other children, and to understand how to participate as a part of a school community." - Ryan Westenskow, Principal, Greenwood Elementary
