    School in the Fall

    We would like to share with families and the public, Colton School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, four-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.

    There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details over the summer.
