School in the Fall
We would like to share with families and the public, Sisters School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, five-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations today in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.
There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We, of course, will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details over the summer.
Welcome to Sisters Country
Home of the Outlaws
Sisters School District is nestled at the base of the Three Sisters mountain peaks. With stunning views and ample outdoor opportunities – classroom work is never dull.
Pulling from a community of just over 10,000 people, all three schools boast small class sizes, dedicated teachers and administrators and a supportive community.
Students can often be found studying biology in nearby Whychus Creek and Camp Polk Meadow Preserve, launching their own weather balloons, obtaining a pilot’s license at Sisters Eagle Airport, and taking part in reenactments of medical traumas in health classes with the local paramedics.
Chinese is taught at all three schools and students have opportunities to travel to China on an semi-annual basis. Both the I.E.E. and Ecos classes get students out and into the wilderness for hands on learning in social studies, environmental science, physical education and language arts. Students have the opportunity to build their own guitars, write and record music and sing along with nationally known recording artists through the Americana Program.
Does this sound like a great place? We think so…and we think you’d fit right in.
A big question parents have right now is how students can go back to school safely during COVID-19. Sisters School District understands that children learn best when they are in school. However, returning to school in person needs careful steps in place to keep students and staff safe.
Sisters School Distict staff and parents are working together to decide how and when schools reopen. These decisions will need to take into account the spread of COVID-19 in the community, as well as whether schools are able to make in-person learning safe.
The Oregon Department of Education is continually sending out updates that our school district is required to impliment. Things are changing quickly right now, so make sure that you are up-to-date on all of the latest news as to how we here at Sisters School District are dealing with COVID-19 as we prepare for the 2020-21 school year.
