As we get closer to the start of a new school year, Forest Hills is working toward the safe and healthy return of students to face to face instruction. As with all schools in the state of Oregon, we are watching the metrics published by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to determine what model we will use. As soon as the metrics show us that face to face learning is safe and permitted, we will return to that model. Until that time, Forest Hills will engage in comprehensive, distance education.
In order for Kindergarten through 6th grade to return to face to face instruction, the county case rate must be below 100 cases per 100,000 people for two consecutive weeks. Additionally, the county test positivity rate must be below 8%. Here are the metrics for the past two weeks. (Updated 11/23/2020)
|11/01 – 11/17||11/08 – 11/21|
|Washington County Rate||12.3%||7.6%|
|Per 100,000 cases (2 wk avg)||260.3||313.2|
*For 7th and 8th grade return to face to face, K-6 must first demonstrate that they are safely back in school. When K-6 are safely back, 7th and 8th can join shortly after.

Based on updates provided by the Oregon Department of Education that allow for limited, on-site instruction, each level of learners at Forest Hills will be able to be on site for a short period of time each week. The following documents outline the schedule for each level of learners.
