  • Hello Cascade Locks Families,


    This is a brief update from the school. Cascade Locks Elementary staff had a virtual meeting Wednesday to continue planning how we will be teaching your child in the coming weeks. Teachers put together learning activities and called parents Thursday and Friday.  If they were not able to get in touch with you they left a message and/or sent you an email. Directions for contacting them are on the cover of this week's packet.


    Today is our first day of "supplemental learning" and the packets for this learning are on our school website.  We also have paper copies that are available at the school to be picked up with meals, from 9:00am-11:00am., or delivered with meals.


    As you likely heard we will be doing full on "distance learning" starting the week of April 13th. Your child's teacher will be calling you soon to share more about the details of what this will look like. Also, many of you have asked about ipad distribution. At this point the plan is for students in grades 3-5 to get ipads sometime in the next two weeks. You will receive more information about this soon.


    I'm sure you have many questions. Your teacher is the best person to start with, their office hours are on the packet and the website.  You can also call our main line at 541-347-8467. 


    Please be patient with us as we navigate this uncharted territory. Our staff is working diligently to put together the best plan to keep our children learning. Spring break has put us a bit behind some other districts and states. This may work in our favor as we get to see what is working for others and adjusting.


    Additionally, staff are managing working from home and supporting their own lives through this time. You may see staff out and about during what we might think of as "regular work hours". Staff is adjusting to this new way of teaching and are doing their work day at irregular times. In addition, teaching is an active profession. Teachers are used to being on their feet, moving throughout the day. Much of their work now will be on the phone and computer. I am encouraging our staff to stay active and healthy. You may see staff out on a run or walk during the middle of the day. You may see them running an errand during the day. These types of breaks will be necessary for staff to stay healthy and well during this time.


    I thank you for your trust in our commitment to doing our absolute best for the children and families in our community. I look forward to partnering with you through this unique time.


    I will continue with regular updates in the coming days. Take care and be well.



    Ms. Moreland
