Good evening Silver Falls Families,

As the COVID-19 situation in Oregon continues to develop, we are monitoring and responding to updated guidance from the Governor, Oregon Health Authority, and the Department of Education. As always, safety for all our students and staff is our number one priority. 

On Tuesday, March 17th, all schools district-wide will be closed, including the District Office. Note that this is a change from our earlier plan to have some staff in buildings on Tuesday, and custodians in buildings all throughout the break. The planned deep-clean of buildings will still occur prior to the return of students.  

These changes will not impact the distribution of free lunches. The drive-thru model will continue from 11:30-12:30 every weekday for all children up to 18 years of age in the following locations:

March 17 – 20

  • Silverton High School
  • Scotts Mills Elementary
  • Silver Crest Elementary
  • Butte Creek Elementary
  • Victor Point Elementary

The latest guidance from the Oregon Department of Education is for students to return on Wednesday, April 1st. Should this change, we will send out an update. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we respond to this ever-changing situation.
