Coronavirus information

Oregon’s response to the Coronavirus is changing faster that I can type to get emails sent out.  As you know by now, the Governor Kate Brown has ordered schools to close until April 1st. This is going to mean a little more quality time at home with the family next week.  

Today and into next week, I will be working with our board and teachers to provide some learning opportunities that you will be able to do at home with your kids. I know from experience with my own children, that it can be a little easier to get your kids to put away the screen and take out a book or do some math when it is an assignment from school.  I am hoping we will be able to work on organizing these materials on Monday and get them to families Monday evening. If you have limited access to technology or internet, please let me know. We will be happy to work with you to ensure all children receive the same learning opportunities.  

Knowing that the situation changes from day to day, we will also be considering adjustments to the curriculum for the weeks following spring break.  

This time without students in the building will also allow us an opportunity to do some deeper sanitizing of the building.  We will be sanitizing floors, desks, chairs and any surfaces regularly touched by students.  

I know the closing of school is a big challenge for all of us and will seriously impact many families.  I have already heard about families working together to provide childcare for each other. Please take care of yourselves and your families.  Let me know if you have any questions or thoughts.  

 

With Care, 

 

Greg

 While this case of Coronavirus is troubling, at this time the Oregon Health authority recommends the standard precautions regarding contagious illness. These include covering a cough, good hand hygiene and staying home if sick.  The OHA website has some very helpful information regarding this virus.  We will also be in close contact with the Oregon City School District while monitoring this situation.  They have released a statement and have some good additional resources.

As your child hears news or conversation about the Coronavirus, it may raise concerns for them.  This article about how to talk to your child about the virus may be helpful.

Annual Asbestos Notification

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT ASBESTOS IN SCHOOLS

September 4, 2018

This information is provided as partial fulfillment of AHERA ( Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act ) rules requiring annual notification of workers and building occupants or their legal guardians of inspections, response actions, and post response action activities, including periodic re-inspections and surveillance activities that are planned or in progress.

A periodic surveillance of asbestos containing materials is performed in the school building every six months. This is done to ensure that asbestos containing materials are maintained in good condition. A complete re-inspection of all Springwater School was conducted in the winter of 2017 and will occur every 3 years. The re-inspections are conducted by an AHERA Accredited Inspector. The results of the re-inspection will be included in the AHERA Management Plan. A copy of the AHERA Management Plan is available in the office.

Over the past year, the school has not removed asbestos containing materials.

Springwater Environmental Sciences School continues to update and improve the AHERA Asbestos Management Plan. This work includes the sampling of materials that were originally assumed to contain asbestos. The improvements in the AHERA Asbestos Management Plan is intended to make them easier to use by staff and outside contractors that perform work within district buildings.

If you have any questions regarding asbestos or the district’s asbestos program, please contact Katie Rasouli.
