BEND, OR -- The Bend La Pine Acting School Superintendent Lora Nordquist says the new state metrics to reopen schools announced Friday, are much less restrictive. She says the state of Oregon has had the most restrictive metrics in the nation and while she wants everyone safe, she does not think the metrics have to be that strict. Nordquist says many students are struggling due to on-line as opposed to in-person classes. She says the new metrics look back two weeks instead of three, which helps. Although she also told us Friday afternoon, the problem is, last week showed high virus numbers three days in a row.
