Bend-La Pine Schools-- Trying to Keep In-person Classes

More than 1,000 Bend-La Pine Schools students and 100 staff members were out last week due to COVID. But the district’s leader says it’ll stay business as usual in schools for as long as possible, despite the rising case counts. In a Friday email to families, Superintendent Dr. Steve Cook says the goal is to keep schools open for in-person learning. Last week’s numbers aren’t yet available for Deschutes County but the Oregon Health Authority reported more than 3,000 cases here Tuesday-Friday alone. Two weeks ago Cook warned parents a return to remote learning would be an option if the COVID situation with teachers worsened. Cook also once again urged families to get vaccinated and boosted if eligible, stay home if they’re sick, up their mask game and avoid large crowds.
