A huge thank to our friends and neighbors for donating to the Ashland Community Hospital’s Patrons Fundraising Campaign for outdoor science kits use each day in Lithia Park by our Kindergarten and 1st grade students participating in Outdoor Education.
High School Rapid Credit Recovery Summer School. Our two sessions of Rapid Credit Recovery have been a great success story. Students are enjoying the small classes, relaxed atmosphere and the ability to come together with peers to have some fun, meet some new friends and earn back those credits lost due to their individual circumstances around COVID closure last year. Several students even CHOSE to come back after the first session to attend the second session just for the fun and friendship!

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Governor Requires Masks for K12 Schools - July 30, 2021 Staff, Parents, Guardians, Families and Students; On July 29, Governor Kate Brown announced that she is directing Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to develop rules aligning to CDC recommendations and requiring masks indoors for K-12 schools during the 2021-22 school year. Read her full statement HERE. This is a change from local decision to state decision making on indoor masking and impacts all K-12 public and private schools. The Department of Education has indicated that the mask requirement will include “all students, staff, contractors, volunteers and visitors.” As of Monday, August 2nd, students and staff in both the K8 and high school summer programs will be required to mask indoors. The masking requirement will continue for the start of the regular school year. As we head into our second three-week summer school session, we are updating our COVID safety practices to include required masking in response to the Governor’s order, local health metrics and recent changes in quarantine rules that can reduce or eliminate the quarantine period for students that wear masks. While no one is excited about the requirement to wear masks in this heat, under the new County Health quarantine protocols for students wearing masks will reduce or eliminate quarantine periods in most cases - meaning more time in school. With four weeks to go before school starts, we continue to plan for full return to on-campus instruction five days a week and a year of on-campus connection and learning. We are continuing to follow COVID safety protocols and work with the Jackson County Department of Health around COVID safety. We recognize that parents and guardians have strong feelings and a range of beliefs around masking and state requirements. Our primary goal is to assure access to school, and the opportunity for learning and connection. Thank you in advance for your flexibility as we work together to keep our kids and staff healthy and in school for the summer and the coming year. Stay cool and enjoy your summer – Samuel Samuel Bogdanove Superintendent Ashland Public Schools Pronouns: He, Him, His

WATER USAGE FOR FIELDS The District is committed to water conservation and responsible water use to maintain fields when school is in session or in use by school activities. To this end, we currently water overnight to allow for maximum absorption and minimal evaporation and run off. We regularly monitor and adjust sprinklers to avoid spillage and loss of this valuable resource. We recognize that our fields are used by the community when school is not in session. The fields may not be watered in late summer, when school is in recess, or If the city issues a water curtailment. We will notify the community on our website if a water curtailment is issued.

Helman Elementary School | Ashland Public Schools District Helman Elementary continues to develop, with a major milestone underway. RD Builders now have all of the walls on the west wing standing allowing a good look at the scale of the new building.
