PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County School District wanted to get K-3 students back in class September 8th, but the county came up short on meeting state metrics. Jason Carr at the school district says the county’s infection rate of 21 per 100-thousand people is well within metrics of 30-per 100 thousand. He says the percentage of positive cases is supposed to be 5-per cent or less and Crook county is at 5-point-6-per cent. He says the metrics will be reviewed every two weeks to give parents a chance to plan ahead. He says if they meet metrics September 14th, K-3 students will get back in class Monday, September 28th. Carr says to get 4th grade to 12th grade students back in class, the metrics are stricter.
